Me and my girlfriend were in Newcastle for the weekend visiting friends so we decided to book here as a treat to celebrate her birthday. Food was amazing one of the best steaks I've had and extremely friendly service.

Booked a table for dinner, got there and the restaurant was closed, a waiter came out and told us they were quiet so decided to close early. We didn’t get any warning, no phone call or email to let us know that they’d cancelled our...reservation and all the surrounding restaurants were full so we just had to go back home. A shame because when I’ve been there before the food has been delicious and the vibe very nice and the staff lovely.More

We went for a bottle of champagne, and wished we had stayed for food aswell. Really enjoyed our time there and the waitress was friendly. Lover decor and ambionce. Slightly off the beaten track but definitely worth going!! Not far from the Quayside/pitcher and piano/21...restaurant.More

My husband and I had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant for our 6th wedding anniversary. This was our first time, and I have to say, we were pleasantly impressed with the meal, and especially the service. The food tasted great and was cooked...to a lovely standard, with bursting flavours in every dish and drink. We were even so fortunate to receive drinks on the house as a complementary gesture and wedding anniversary gift! The restaurant adhered perfectly to the COVID-19 regulations, making us feel comfortable and safe, We loved our time there, and we will be visiting again.More

It was unfortunate that the new lockdown imposition on Newcastle hospitality venues brought cancellation of bookings on the restaurant. That said, it was also unfortunate for me that the only other customers in the restaurant that evening were raucous to the point of being at...times deafening. The waiter sympathised but was reluctant to act. So much for the background, which I admit could possibly have affected my attitude to the evening. I had the scallop starters. According to the menu the scallops were to be accompanied by chorizo and pea purée but these were in such small measures as to be barely discernible. The lamb shank with mixed veg side for main course was well cooked. The cheesecake I had for dessert was fine. I paid the 10% service charge. I feel sorry for these places as they must be struggling to survive in the current difficult times, but I did feel the meal was overpriced. With a cocktail, small wine and service I paid just over £60. My advice to anyone wishing to save on the bill would be to avoid the scallop starter.More

Visited here with a work friend to try the wagyu burger and left with mixed feelings , I’ve been wanting to try this place for so long because of the food and the champagne cocktails and finally booked today . I booked this morning and...had no problem getting a table , but when we arrived we were the first customers of the evening and still got sat in the most pokey table away from the rest of the restaurant so can’t really speak for the look of the place , the waitress who sat us was pleasant enough And we ordered drinks then food . The wagyu burger was amazing ! Really flavourful but we had discussed earlier that a £20 burger should really be great and needs to be accompanied by great service and in a nice location and that’s where it fell down . The only time we could get a second drink was when our food arrived and we requested a second round . There was only 3 tables in by this point so it’s not like the server was stressed . There was an enquiry about our food and the offer of a dessert but when we said no there was no offer of our bill then the girl just disappeared , because of our poor location in the restaurant we couldn’t see anywhere and when she did emerge she stood at the bar with her back to the restaurant reading something or checking her nails . It’s not like we were in any hurry but had finished our food and drinks and the table had been cleared and eventually I had to shout over ( not very dignified in a champagne bar) for the bill . My pet hate at the moment is service charges !! This is by no means the only place to sneak one in but when the service is so poor to pay £6.50 for someone to take my order and bring the food over seems excessive . I never understand why in a cafe or other places there’s no service charge but in slightly upmarket places there is ?? Why isn’t this just covered in the price of the food , I wouldn’t expect to go to a bakery and pay £1 for a loaf of bread but be charged £1.10 for the staff to serve me but it now seems to becoming a common norm . All and all I would think of going back but not hurry , the burger was great but there’s better service at st Vincent’s around the corner or the broad charMore
