For a restaurant that charges these prices, they need a lot of improvement. Firstly the waiter spilt a bit of champagne but didn't bother to wipe it down. One of the waitresses served the first course and forgot to tell us what it was and needed a prompt from another member of staff. The staff generally lack courtesy and could... More

Absolutely adore this restaurant! I went last night for the second time and was once again blown away by every aspect. The relaxed chilled atmosphere and friendliness of the staff instantly make you feel at home. Clare Love is wonderful and cannot do enough to help you. My husband has a few dietary requirements and she was more than accommodating... More

OK, so Birmingham isn't London or Tokyo or Paris when it comes to fine dining... but we do have an increasing number of really first rate establishments and Loves is one of the very finest. We went for the 5 course tasting menu with accompanying wine-flight and have to say it was really rather marvellous. Each course was a delight... More

We visited Loves for my husband's Birthday in August. We ordered the 5 course menu with wine taster menu too - a fantastic experience as Clare Love explains all of the wines passionately and knowledgeably, which makes the whole meal a real experience! The service is intimate and attentive without being over-bearing - the staff engage with you and take... More

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...

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
