    It was a busy evening, and our small party group didn't get the most prompt attention. We were put in a smaller room which was pleasant enough but right in front of a fire which wasn't really necessary. Service was good but not excellent, food was good but with not excellent - with one apple and blackberry dessert was excellent. I expected excellence across the board so came away slightly disappointed. I think they probably do better most of the time, just not on this occasion.

    Hi. We were a group of 8 and were at Cerise to celebrate my wife's birthday. We certainly enjoyed our visit. the atmosphere was good with several other diners in the restaurant which created sufficient atmosphere - but the tables were far enough apart that you didn't hear them! Although the restaurant is attached to a hotel, it felt sufficiently separate and the decor was trendy. The opening cocktail menu was extensive and varied which was great. Our food was presented well. Of the three courses we had, the mains were certainly the best. For improvement, I would suggest the team at Cerise consider adding a few 'classics' to bolster the dessert choices. The souffle was the best we ordered, with the others a little underwhelming. Overall we enjoyed our visit and felt the price we paid was a fair reflection of the food & wine quality that we enjoyed.
