My wife and I have been lucky enough to eat out extensively around the world, including the usual 'names' in London. But hands-down, Annexe in Birmingham beats any competition! Each of our meals here has been faultless and an absolute taste delight! Each mouthful reveals a new experience in flavours and textures and I can't think of food that's ever... More

I had the seared beef and my friend had the lamb, both were delicious. cocktails, very good and very strong, worth the price. decor was beautiful and very 'french' loved the classic B&W films playing in the background. staff were excellent, we had a female...

Five of us went to the restaurant last Saturday. I will keep this short because that's what most readers want. Food was good but not excellent . No major complaint but top end prices. Service was efficient and polite but again not excellent. Decor splendid but seating uncomfortable because of lack of cushions. Like sitting on kitchen chairs. The major... More

Dear Sir, As I have already explained to you in response to your emails, I am sorry it was so hot. As you will notice from responses to other reviews on the same night, it took us completely by surprise and we did our best to cope in the short term. It has never happened before so we were not...

Visited here on the 26th July 2014. I used to work in the restaurant industry and struggle to see how when you get somewhere very busy turning out good food that they can't spend £3k on Air Conditioning. To be fair the food is good but as it was so hot we rushed through our starter and main courses as... More

Dear Sir, Thanks for visiting Annexe. I am glad you enjoyed the food but am very disappointed that you didn't enjoy your overall experience, principally due to the heat. This is a freak occurrence and has taken us by surprise. We did our best to deal with it in the immediate term, and will be taking further steps counter the... More

I had visited this restaurant before with my Wife and we had enjoyed it. My mother in law decided she would like to come here for her birthday so we were happy to oblige. We arrived at 7pm and were seated. The first thing we noticed was that the dining area was quite toasty but the ceiling fans were not... More

Dear Sir, Thanks for visiting Annexe again. I am glad you enjoyed the service and atmosphere. I am disappointed about the food and also rather surprised to hear this about the ceiling fans. I shall be discussing this with staff as they should have been on. Following discussions with the Head Chef I can respond to your food points as... More

I booked for my daughter's recent pre-graduation celebratory dinner. The weather on Wednesday had been warm, but not hot. We walked into the Annexe and it was like walking into an oven. There were ceiling fans but these produced no comfort. Seated customers were fanning themselves to cool down. When we asked if any parts of the restaurant were cooler... More

I recently used Annexe to host my partners 40th Birthday and they were amazing. I took all of the decorations and cake before hand which they prepared on the table as I requested. I asked for a fixed menu, which was £30.00 per head, but every one still had a choice of three starters, three mains and three puddings. Every... More

I've never really eaten in Birmingham before, but if this place is typical then Brummies are very lucky. Full of atmosphere, the place looks and feels great as soon as you walk in. The staff were rushed off their feet last Saturday night, but they all looked like they enjoyed working there. The food was divine - salmon souffle/goats cheese,... More
