    We went to celebrate a 50th bday and whille we spent a lot more than we were expecting to pay for the star deal (we did have 2 cocktails each from the bar and some water after all) we dont regret going. The food was very nice but more than anything the restaurant was lovely and the service impeccable. I couldnt be more complimentary of the staff who were all very polite and helpful without being too intrusive. There was an excellent live piano player whose repertoire could never have been more appropriate for the venue and the celebration.

    Lovely lunch enjoyed by all 6 of us. It was a lunch for an eighteenth birthday. Lovely traditional setting. Service was excellent. Staff were very attentive and they did not rush us. We had a table which felt very private.

    We booked the set menu. From the moment we arrived the staff were so attentive and the food menu was really good (Melon starter was so tasty and surprisingly filling). We also did the wine pairing which I would recommend. I didn’t like the last pairing so it was swapped with something else without any hassle. Lovely food really well presented and top rate service in a superb comfy setting. The piano playing in the background added to the ambiance.

    Dining at Céleste was delightful in every possible way. We came as a treat to celebrate a 30th birthday, and had the deal offered through bookatable (£39 for 3 courses and a glass of champagne). The food was beautiful, the staff were all attentive yet not intrusive. They were warm and friendly. The someliere heard us mention the birthday and she secretly organised a little tartlet with happy birthday on the plate. She also spent at least 20 minutes with us choosing a wine, including letting us taste from open bottles, until we found a wine that suited our taste, food choices and price range. The dining room itself is beautiful. Even the toilets were wood-panelled and spotless! We cannot fault a single thing, and it was the perfect place for us to celebrate together. Thank you to all the staff who made it such a wonderful evening.
