    Terrible. We were ignored and then they had run out of everything on the menu

    Catastrophic.. only half of the brunch menu was available, service was completely messy, we finally got our cocktails after the main course! Food was just ok.. never again

    Staff were friendly, and starters were fine. However, mains were very disappointing and the bill was exorbitant, particularly for what it was.

    It used to be a glamorous place with nice crowd of people. Today, almost nothing is left of the old place

    Excellent service and menu. Couldn't have first choice because no flexibility on portion size of roast chicken (even though I was offering to pay full price). Music far too loud. People go to dinner to talk to each other not to be drowned out by music. Turn music down or have quieter areas - we were on mezzanine level.

    The setting is beautiful - gorgeous interior and we were able to sit outside on the terrace in the sunshine. Unfortunately, both service and food were both extremely disappointing. I ordered a croissant with a side of butter and told this would be fine - the butter never arrived. The eggs benedict my friend ordered was swimming in hollandaise which was overpowering and not very tasty, also another friend's granola bowl was very poorly presented and not in a way you'd expect for the venue and cost.
    When we tried to pay the bill, nobody came for such a long time that we couldn't believe it. We were walking around the venue inside to try and get the attention of someone and it actually became comical how we were absolutely completely ignored by the waitresses (one who I think was the manager). She would look at us and continue to walk past without any acknowledgement even though she had served us and seated us. It was as if we were invisible and could have easily just walked out without paying. The venue was not busy so we also didn't understand why it was so difficult. We then asked the bartender if we could pay and he said someone would do it, we were looking around like lost puppies and asked 2 other members of staff if we could pay. We were laughing because we could not believe how difficult it was and none of us had experienced anything like it before in a restaurant. Then we chose not to pay service charge, for this reason, the waitress said "aren't you paying the service?" and my friend simply had to say no. No acknowledgement when leaving either by the waitress/manager who had served us. It was the most bizarre experience and if it weren't for the pleasant weather and terrace seating I would have put 1 star on this review. Since this day I have heard from several friends that it's "known" for it's terrible service. It's a gorgeous place however and has a lot of potential!
