Mixed opinions on dinner - I liked the steak but my wife thought fish lacked any flavour/sauce) Restaurant lacks any ambiance.

We booked dinner here since we were staying on Mistletoe Lane and we could stroll down and all have a few glasses of wine. We arrived at 7.30 on a saturday night and it was half empty , so there was no need to book a table (as the website suggested). The restaurant was a bit blah and didn't look anything like the impression the web and press pictures gave. The service was bad from the start ; waitress dropped menus , menus dirty and had to get another one , had to ask for an ice bucket , staff kept disappearing and we constantly had to wait for someone to appear form the back , staff clueless about the menu items , and the list goes on and on ....
Everything seamed to be a struggle , yet the place was not busy so have no idea how they cope when it is full. The food was okay , nothing exciting. Despite being an Italian restaurant there were no pizza options. At the end of the meal , again no staff about , waited 10 min and had to get up and walk over to the till and ask for the bill.
I just can't imagine what this place must be like during the week when it's quiet. This is feels like a hotel restaurant. Nothing more.

We stayed at the Hunter Resort and ate here on the first night. It was nice enough, but we probably expected more for the price. Service was fair without being spectacular.

The food is cold, not cooked properly, the service is totally unproffessional, the music is boring, the restaurant is dirty, including the glassware, cuterly and crockery.
