We went there for dinner and we had to wait a while to get greeted and being able to talk to a server to have us sit. We ordered salad and mains and asked to bring everything together. They said it was going to take 20/30 minutes to serve the food but it took almost an hour. When the food... More

We booked this restaurant for Xmas Dinner. After waiting a bit, we were shown to our table which had a fantastic view of the grounds of the casino, the bay and the port area. The table setting was very disappointing. No table cloth, there were Keno cards just in case I wanted to gamble and the only xmas item on... More

Despite the fact this place gets average reviews we thought we'd give it the benefit of the doubt. We waited diligently at the the desk to be seated thinking the girl standing there would seat us. Nope, she walked off...we waited thinking the guy who walked past and gave us eye contact would seat us, nope turns out he wouldn't... More

Visited the Loft Bistro at Wrest Point and as always had a great meal, the staff are engaging and very friendly, the service is attentive. We both had the T-Bones which were cooked to perfection. The menu choice is extensive and not overpriced. We have always found the Loft to be good choice to dine.

I attended here for dinner on my own and ordered a glass of wine and the 300 gm T bone steak with the home made BBQ sauce. I was asked how I would prefer my steak which I answered medium rare. Ok so the steak came out and looked rather big although extremely thin! Just as I thought overcooked not... More

My husband & I dined here and the view is fantastic. Service was good but the meals were disappointing. Overpriced pub fair and undersized portions. Selection average. Entrees very overpriced. Porterhouse steak served with chips and salad and your choice of sauce - salad & chips - where were they?? tiny portion of salad with 8 chips which were pretty... More

We didn't book, so we were lucky to get in. Salmon was to die for and the ice cream after. It was such a pleasant restaurant. No wonder it was popular.

Had an evening meal. Service friendly and promptly seated. Enough choice on the menu. Food was average, not bad though, good size serving. Drinks expensive for a bistro atmosphere.

Booked for ten people for grand daughters birthday. Four of us ordered the chicken parmigiana (special for night). My meal came - very small parmigiana - with 8 chips on plate - head of two rocket leaves and one cherry tomato cut in half - when I asked for more chips and was met with disdain - a small bowl...

Staying at Wrest Point and couldn't be bothered going out. The Loft was the most appealing in the Casino. He had The Seafood Tagliatelle and said there was a decent amount of seafood. I had the scotch and veggies. Steak was cooked blue which was good but it was cheap scotch fillet and sinewy and had not been rested so... More
