On arrival the first impressions were that the Dining Room was quite sparse. On reflection we feel some thought should be given to tablecloths and flowers.
I indicated on the telephone when booking that we were having a special lunch to celebrate my mothers 70th Birthday and was advised that something a little special would be done for her, however nothing materialised.
The food however was extremely well presented and hot although vegetables and sauces were a little late arriving. We were already quite a way through eating our meals by this time otherwise our food would have been cold. The wine list was rather expensive so maybe some better value options could be considered as well as the house wine which incidentally we did not have.
We would return however it would be nice to see some of the changes above implemented. We do eat out in many restaurants on a regular basis and just felt the whole experience we had did not quite match up to the reviews on here. My mum was certainly not made to feel special enough, I did in fact mention to the waitress when she was serving desserts " that's for the birthday girl". Nothing was picked up upon!
We had chosen this restaurant in preference to Kits Coty due to the reviews. I, when dining at Kits Coty in the past felt it was cold with sparse furniture and for my mother I wanted to get the whole experience, good food and ambience. We just did not get the latter!!
The food was very good however and we wish this restaurant to succeed hence this constructive review.
