    Very poor service told food we be delayed by 50 minutes as they were busy due a concert in the Arena Birmingham close by. Food adequate, very poor customer service all round.

    The Hilton restaurant was nice and the waitress was lovely, she came out with a Happy Birthday fancy writing on a black slate board with a chocolate cake, it was a nice touch.The cakes and the Prosecco drink was nice. What the Hilton can improve on is the sandwiches, I put a request in regards to allergies. I was informed that they received my request and could not do this due to that is their menu. I'm giving it a four because of the waitress otherwise it would have been a three star. I was advised I was called, this was not the case and I did not leave a contact number.Hilton is a big reputable company and I would expect the Hilton to accommodate to the customers requirement, what if someone was Vegan, what would happen then. The sandwich choices are not good.I had afternoon tea at Marco Pierre and this was catered for. Apart from this it's a nice venue and the waitress was nice and the cakes, they just need to accommodate for the customers as this can make customers not want to come back.

    I had an afternoon tea which was vegetarian. We received egg, cheese and houmus sandwiches. 3 cakes each and scones each with a choice of refillable coffee. Food was fresh. Sandwich portions could be slighter bigger with less cake instead. Excellent service.
