This was our second visit to Momentum and we were really looking forward to a quality dining experience as the previous time was excellent, this time however was a major disappointment. As we entered the restaurant we went to the bar for a drink before dining, we were asked if we had a table booked and were told to take a seat and somebody would be over to take our drinks order, 10 minutes later and with the bar staff chatting between themselves I went to the bar and ordered our drinks, not the best start!
Looking at the menu we were impressed with the selection and decided to have the roast king scallops and baked goats cheese starter, couldn't fault the goats cheese but some of scallops weren't cooked through fully and as I found out later that evening were not fresh either!!!
For our mains I had the Rib eye steak and my partner had the potato gnocchi, I asked for my steak rare which arrived medium, and the potato gnocchi was missing the sticky walnuts and blue cheese. My partner politely asked the waitress about the missing components to her dish and it was taken away, she returned shortly after and apologised that the menu had recently been changed but there was blue cheese in the sauce which is an insult to our taste buds obviously, however with the addition of the 2 missing ingredients the dish was beautiful.
Couldn't fault the choice of wine, we had two bottles of the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, but that isn't exactly hard to mess up. The final bill came just short of £130 which I think is reasonable these days, however it felt like a waste of money at the end of the night, I just wish now that I had complained on the night.
I was so disappointed with the meal that I felt that I had to write this review and hope it will be helpful.
