Went with high expectations and greatly disappointed. Food OK, nice funky room however the service was dreadful! The restaurant was overstuffed with elegantly dressed staffed who seemed to wander about aimlessly oblivious to the needs of the diners. It looked as though they had spent hours doing their hair, but had no training from management as to customer service. A good example was that our wine arrived over 20 minutes after our entrees. Restaurant needs to focus on ambience, food, wine and service, not the staff trying to look like they are guests at Elton John's Christmas party. The whole model is incongruous with the image of the old Gowings, with its barbers shop smelling of brylcream. The manager should go down the road to Hemmes to see how it should be done
