    This was our fourth visit and as before, the food and service were excellent. We had the steak and lobster and although not normally meat eaters, thoroughly enjoyed both.

    Restaurant was very busy when we arrived, the concierge made a point of telling me we were 2 minutes late.

    The restaurant was quite dark it wasn't easy to read the menu, staff were very friendly and service very good.
    I booked a deal steak and lobster, the meal deal alone was very tasty but not particular filling in order for the staff to push the rest of the menu at the point of ordering.

    Our table was allocated to 7.30 and we were asked to we could be moved at 9.20 - when I asked if our table was re booked at 9.30 I didn't get a reply.

    Crazy Bear are a little bit precious and the meal deal doesn't fulfil what it promises.

    While the steak was perfectly cooked, and a great piece of meat for the value, everything else was underwhelming. The lobster was slimy and didn't have the claws, so missing lots of meat. The service was terribly poor. An hour into our seating (after he was slow to bring us our drinks, and told us our steak would take 35-40 mins to cook for medium rare), they reminded us that they might have to take our table back soon. We still had 70 mins left in our sitting by then.

    After all of the tables around us complained and sent back meals, the manager stepped in, which increased the level of service. We also took advantage of half priced champagne Wednesdays, which was nice.

    I think Crazy Bear has had its peak, and can't ride on its reputation anymore. For what we paid, I was satisfied with the meal, but I wouldn't go back, and certainly not without a deal.

    Great ambience, if a little dated now, it was the same when we went ten years ago! however, the service very slow and the food was only passable, room for improvement!

    I treated my best friend to a meal out and I have to say we were both blown away by the service and whole experience. Anthony I hope you get to see this! You made our night, food was so tasty, ambiance was good and just seems to work! We will be back for sure! Thank you x

    Crazy Bear was really lovely. We shared the surf and turf. The chateaubriand was amazing. The lobster was tasty however sadly there was very little of it. The first bottle of white wine (without sounding really fussy) wasn't the same vintage as the wine ordered but it was lovely. It also wasn't cold which was a bit disappointing.

    The Crazy Bear was an experience. We were warmly greeted and given a wonderful table.
    The food was nice, a surprising mixture of European and Asian traditional dishes.
    Definitely an experience we would enjoy again soon.
