Normally I wouldn't write bad reviews but James Street South was very disappointing. We went on a Saturday night at 7pm for a special occasion having got engaged an hour beforehand, the service throughout was of the standard you would expect in a fine dining restaurant so I will talk only about the food.
I chose the Mackrel for starter as was curious as to how the chef would deal with the Mackrels strong flavour and personalise it, unfortunately it was not much different to what you would buy at a supermarket fish counter or indeed from a tin. I really wish I had went with my original choice of Pigeon.
For my main course I went with the rabbit, the rabbit and it's accompanying vegetables can only be described as bland, my partner chose the Vennison and while she said the meat was cooked to perfection she felt the accompanying vegetables did not complement it at all and she felt it really detracted from the taste of the meat.
Unfortunately having been so disappointed we decided not to hang around for desert and asked for the bill, the price was what was anticipated so was no shock, it was just disappointing the food didn't hit similar heights.
