    The food, dining area and staff were all exceptional. The presentation of the food and overall surroundings just gorgeous! It was my mums 50th and the Grill room made it a memorable one. My family and I could not stop talking about the attention to detail in every aspect and the overall amazing experience. The Grill Room is a place I would recommend to anyone looking for a TRUE fine dining experience. Thank you for a wonderful time :)

    The staff were all very helpful. The sommelier recommended a wonderful wine that we enjoyed very much.

    Overall, the quality of the food was disappointing. The carpaccio starter was not accurately described, as it was more dumplings than carpaccio. And the salad starter was not very appetising (it was as a big heap of items with some very dry chicken). For the mains, the salmon was nice as was the curry. However, the ravioli turned out to be fried and rather rubbery and tasteless.

    The ambience and service was good, but given the quality of food we have some reservations about recommending this restaurant.

    The service was outstanding, and the meals were absolutely delicious! The classic decor was 5 star! However, the ambience could be improved - the background music was so soft it could not be heard, and the although our overall experience was favourable, the ambience felt a bit like a high-end dining room rather than an upmarket restaurant. However, we certainly loved the experience and we will certainly be back again!

    We had crayfish starter and snails, both amazing. For main we chose Salmon and prawns and enjoyed both, as always! Hendry prepared the crepes beautifully as always and Billet was as helpful as always too! We love visiting the Grill as the atmosphere, food and service is always top class

    From booking to meals was mind blowing and refreshing. You guys are tops. I went there to feel big and you made me feel huge, important and mostly privileged. It was all Lord's work, keep it up

    Dinner at the Oyster Box Grill Room is always great, the food is excellent, and the service is exceptional. The Grill Room has a real private feel to it and the staff take good care of the guests.
