“Not geared up for large groups”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

Went to Steak & Spice with a large pre-booked group of around 40. Most meals were pre-ordered against individual names from a limited menu. Food was slow to be served (at least an hour and a half before the first course arrived!) and staff were often wandering from table to table trying to find who had ordered a particular dish. As a consequence the food was cold by the time it found the right person.
The main eating area is in the basement where the decoration and layout is stark with tables in rows around the brick pillars. It therefore lacked atmosphere.
The gents toilets were in need of a good clean. The floor was filthy.
The fillet steak however was very tender.

“Poor”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile

Sadly disappointing, steak was overcooked and not a great quality. Service was slow and inattentive. Desserts were poor and the house wine was overpriced.
