Sorry for the very obvious headline but it was the most fitting. I took my wife here for her birthday and we… loved it. We had the 5 course taster menu which consisted of some fabulous flavours presented by a chef who obviously cares how it all looks. The white onion cream dish starter was a favourite. It was all...

Food delicious but a little small could do with being a little bigger portions but that was only because the courses where so tasty could of eaten them by the bowl full!! The wine pairings where bang on 2, very good! The only dish we wasnt... More

This restaurant is tucked away, beside a canal just outside the centre of Birmingham. We received a lovely welcome, and a wonderful glass of the best English sparkling wine - Camel Valley. As a fan of English wines, it's great to see a restaurant actively supporting them. We opted for the £75 tasting menu with accompanying wine flight. The food... More

We have been several times and enjoyed every meal. So, we just had to come back and experience the 10 course tasting menu at the kitchen table. Food and wine pairing was as ever excellent. Why Loves hasn't got Michelin stars I'll never know! Steve kept us entertained all night with so much insight into the menu, the restaurant industry... More

Summary: A succession of creative dishes of intense, authentic flavours artistically presented — delicate paintings on a plate — accompanied by wines that complemented and enhanced each dish. Service was faultless. Positives: All the dishes were creatively conceived and executed superbly, being beautifully balanced in terms of flavours, textures, and appearance. Service. Food/wine harmony. Negatives: If you take your aperitif... More

This is the first review I've ever written...we mainly use the reviews to find places to go and never post ourself but we were so impressed with Loves I had to put something on. The food is stunning and what's more important, the taste lives up to how it looks too. We went for the £55 tasting menu each which... More

Loves was recommended to us as a great place to eat by the canal in Birmingham city, it was just that. We had a great meal overlooking a very quiet part of the canal a few mins walk from the mail box and Brindley Place. The staff were excellent, attentive but not in your face. The menu was quite small... More

We went to celebrate a big birthday and opted for the £55 taster menu with wine. The service throughout was fantastic and the food was consistently creative, tasty and beautifully presented. The food is almost impossible to fault. For me they lose a star for the environment. The restaurant is a bit dreary and not upmarket enough for the quality... More

We went here for my birthday and had the most amazing meal, the best meal I've ever had I would say. I don't normally write reviews but just had to share how wondeful this restaurant was. The food was absolutely gorgeous and the service was just as impressive. Sometimes I've found that with really nice restaurants there has been a... More

First time we had visited the restaurant although recommended by many of our friends (and some of them chefs or just plain fussy!!). Opted for the taster menu at £55 and was not disappointed at all. The food was just beautiful and portions appropriate. Flavours were amazing and of course, presentation to match. Our only disappointment was the limited a... More
