“Xmas meal a treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

I have been here many times with friends before the theatre and always had a good time and good food, this time we had our office Xmas meal here in December, and I still wasn't disappointed. Nothing was too much trouble for the waiting staff, and they were very patient, it can be difficult getting the attention of 20 plus people when the food arrives. Food was excellent, I went for the pate, Steak and Tiramisu, as a total change from the normal Xmassy type fayre. Couldn't have made a better choice, although others were happy with their choices too. Tiramisu is to die for and a generous portion too - definitely recommended. I would like to have my own veggies though, I'm always very cautious when having to share - don't want to take more than my share and no-one likes to take the last one!

Hope to be back again soon.

“Excellent as always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

I ate here Last night for my Birthday and this is about my fifth visit, I thoroughly enjoyed it, what makes it so is the friendly staff, food quality. Any special requests are always accommodated if they have the ingredients in the kitchen.

It is a Restaurant that you have to enjoy and it is not a fast food joint, so if you want that then go there. I love the idea of sharing platters, especially desserts. If I had to find something to suggest to improve further, do not add a service charge for tables of 8 or more, as guests that are happy will always leave a tip that they see is fair, having said this they did take it off straight away and we left what we could afford to. I can not wait for my next visit.

“Very disappointing - sorry but can't recommend on this showing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Went to Ego again (as we did last year), but were bitterly disappointed this time. It was for the Christmas 'do', and the restaurant were trying to do too much for too many with the result that the food quality was poor, food was luke warm, and 2 of our party suffered with tummy the next day. Very disappointing this time as last year was fine. It just felt the place was trying to squeeze every last penny out of the Christmas time, and standards definitely slipped.

“Excellent food and service just atmosphere a little lacking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Ate at ego last night and thoroughly enjoyed the food all of it was cooked to a high standard and presentation was very nice.

Service was excellent! The waitress was very pleasant and welcoming, checked to ensure we were enjoying each course and ensured we didn't run out of drinks.

Value wise one of the best restaurants in Sheffield, the usual prices are already competitive but we had a 1/3rd off voucher which made the total bill very cheap for the quality of food we ate.

Would highly recommend this restaurant especially with the fantastic city centre location!
