Visited on off chance, not booked, made welcome. Had starters which were big helpings, instead of mains, and coffees. $120 for 3 people inc glass of wine each.

Sadly, I have little to offer from previous comments. We bought a groupon coupon, and were unceremoniously dumped at a table. After waiting patiently for ten minutes, no menu arrived. We asked, and were told we would have to order from a set menu. This is despite ringing earlier in the week to be told otherwise. The seafood was ok, but the steak was tiny, full of gristle, and bizarrely cooked with one half well done, and the other rare! The desert was an unusual experience, a creme caramel like not other, but with a similar texture to cold, lumpy sick. The waiter seemed uninterested in his work, but loved chatting up the female staff, something he devoted his evening to, at the expense of ours... And we didn't even get offered a baileys, or even cup of tea to make up for this. The restaurant is freezing, so bring a jumper. I was stunned to get home and find our experience was so similar to others... Surely you'd learn from this feedback?

We read reviews and had our doubts but we had great food and fantastic service .We will go back again. We eat regularly along here and this was the first time here but service was fast and food tasted very good. Everyone had a great time.

We had dinner here on a Groupon voucher and as we arrived we noticed signs in the window saying "new management; new executive chef". Our carrot & ginger soup was delicious; calamari however needed to be cooked in hotter oil and the aioli needed more garlic. Mains of steak was quite nice and tasty though too much gristle; fish of the day was barra but tasted a bit fishy to be really fresh. Dessert was very disappointing: supposed to be strawberry mouse on chocolate something or other - it was a pink (packet) marshmallow on top of a very solid piece of chocoate flavoured something. A lovely touch, however, was complimentary glass of Baileys with a couple of biscuits. Service was very good though let down by the food. I hope this place settles down and becomes good - Docklands would welcome it.

It took them 20 mins to bring me the jug of water i asked for and to then take our orders. After ordering it took another hour to get our entrees out. Restaurant was barely full, there was a group of 4 beside us that were there before us and they hadn't even got their mains yet.

Food was bland, ordinary. Way over priced for the shocking service and foul food. To top the night off, when the waiters asked how the night went, i was honest and said it took long to get the food and they offered a discount. While returning the receipt she thought she'd be nice and give us some Baileys to say sorry.

The waiter spilt the Baileys all over my girlfriend and ruined our night. Was refunded. but would not recommend this place to anyone.
