    Booked using the chateaubriand/lobster/champagne deal - but that was all the deal included so we paid extra for starters, vegetables with the main and dessert. Having said that it was well worth it - service was impeccable, food absolutely delicious and the place (which looked quite spacious on the internet) was actually really cosy and intimate. Definitely go back again!!! :

    Food was lovely and good value. It was something a bit different which was great. Staff really friendly but we waited nearly an hour and a half for food which was disappointing as it was a fixed menu so clearly very little preparation required and not that busy

    First time at this restaurant and we were on the chateaubriand/lobster/glass of champagne deal. We ordered mixed dim sum to start and these were delicious. Main course was very good and the glass of champagne was really nice - sometimes what you're offered on a deal isn't that great but this was excellent. The bottle of Corbiere we ordered was also excellent. Really first class waiter who was chatty, friendly but really professional and knew his stuff.

    The food was exquisite & the service exemplary. The £25 deal for chateaubriand, lobster & s glass of champagne excellent value for a party of 4 with 3 sides, a glass of wine, 1 dessert & service charge came to £40 per head. I would highly recommend for a great night out.

    The most beautiful restaurant I have ever been to. Lobster was delicious, perfectly cooked and seasoned, and chateaubriand was melt in the mouth. Staff couldn't do more to look after us and cocktails were to die for! Highly recommend, new favourite restaurant, will be returning soon!!

    Extremely please - service was good, a little tight on the seating but the food was fabulous and great deal for half lobster, glass of bubbly and chateaubriand at £25. The hamachi sashimi we had to start was absolutely divine. Will definitely be going back when I'm on less of a budget.

    The staff were dismissive and rude.

    The beef, ordered medium-rare, came well done. However, having taken so long to arrive (the table next to us came 20 minutes after we were seated and had their starters and main brought out while we waited for our main), we were so hungry that we ate it. It had the texture of boot leather.

    The bill then came with an extra charge - they had ignored the deal we had booked and tried to charge us for the individual components.

    As we were leaving, the lady collected my friend's coat check number, but seeing people reading the menu by the door, proceeded to ignore my number, hurrying to return to try to get these potential customers in - my friend had to run after her to get my coat back, during which time I recommended a lovely Tapas restaurant around the corner to the people reading the menu.

    The expereince was only redeemed by the fact, that notwithstanding the beef, the value of the deal covered the value of the rest of the meal and service we were subjected to.

    The second star is for the lobster, which was cooked very well.

  • (**** by from London

    The restaurant was styled like a French brasserie, extremely different to the funky cocktail bar downstairs and what we had expected having been to beaconsfield before.

    The food was a real let down, the chateaubriand was extremely dry and chewy and the lobster was so overly spiced with chilli that we couldn't taste it at all. We ordered a noodle dish on the side as the deal doesn't come with anything else and all our food was served at different times meaning our noodles were cold by the time the meat came. When we told the waiter our feedback he was extremely dismissive.

    Overall a very poor experience at the crazy bear and certainly not somewhere I would recommend to friends in the future.
