“Great food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

As expected, another lovely meal at Pizza Express. Never had a bad meal or service at Pizza Express. The Birmingham establishment was no different. Great service and great food.

“Good food as usual but service slow”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

The brand always delivers good service however in this restaurant it was very slow- it was not particularly busy and there seemed to be a lot of staff around too.

“Speedy service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

We enjoyed the ususal fayre here. The service was so speedy that my plate was taken before I'd finiished chewing my last mouthful!. Rather dim in there, I couldn't read the menu and saw others struggling! However, polite staff, who obviously worked very hard and clean environment.

“Need to think about where to seat everyone”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

We went in on a quiet Thursday lunchtime and the restaurant was very quiet.
We were sat along the bench which looked great but within a second of us sitting down the telephone rang very loudly just where we were sat and then we realised we were right by the staff station.
Why would you do this, the card and swipe machine was right by my mother in laws ear.
I did not like to make a fuss but should have done as the clanking of the recycled bottles was awful as well.
Why would you sit someone in that spot when the restaurant was so empty.
Saying all that the service and food was amazing but spoilt by the lack of thought.
