Have been dining at Sardis on and off for lots of years now and can honestly say I have never had a bad meal, on second thoughts, I have never had an OK meal. Every meal has been absolutely fabulous. Presentation and taste amazing, Staff are always pleasant and obliging. Always a great selection of wine and if you are... More

Yet again a 1st class meal, never had anything but excellent service and good food. I have tried other restaurants in the area and paid more and enjoyed it less and paid over the odds for morsels of food with little or no taste. I have yet to have that experience at this restaurant

I recently went to eat at Sardis for a family birthday and have to say how disappointed i was... In simple terms you have to pour your own wine, carry your drinks yourself to the table, take the cling film off the bread yourself, you have no chance of a waiter asking if you want more drinks, when you order...

Can't believe the review I've just read as I was sitting in Sardis restaurant until nearly 1 o'clock on Sat night/ Sunday morning feeling very welcome even when we (not the staff) decided it was time to go home. The food is the best I've had anywhere and the staff are always very welcoming. If you haven't been you're missing... More

I had heard good things about Sardis and in general the food (Italian) wad ok, however at ten pm on a Friday evening, didn't expect to be given the bill as a less then subtle hint to leave, as we were the last in. Spoiled the whole evening and won't be going back or recommending Sardis to anyone.

We visited early ish tea time, there was only one other party in and they were a big group of people who probably live down Yarm Road if you catch my drift, which didn't really help but made sure not to judge the restaurant on their clientele... Food overpriced and slow service which was remarkable considering the restaurant was far... More
