    Booked a table for 7.30 as was celebrating my partners birthday and had plans for afterwards. Arrived and the entrance hall wasn’t pure chaos! People everywhere, could hardly move. Finally got to the counter and told them I had a reservation (this was at 7.25) and was told i would be seated shortly. We were not taken to our seats until 8pm even after I complained as we had other plans. What made it worse is in the entrance hall there is cctv of the dining room which was constantly showing rows of empty tables!! When taken to our table we were sat directly under the air con unit which was on that full it was blowing my napkin off the table, not to mention that cold I was shivering and my food wasn’t instantly cold when I sat down. I asked multiple times for it to be turned off with no results. In the end I pulled over a guy in a white shirt who looked like he was higher management who sorted it immediately (but again this easily took 30-40 minutes from when I initially asked) The food was good and did make up for it, however our night ended because we missed the timings for our following plans. So overall was a VERY expensive night for what was just a meal out My advise, book a table at least half an hour before when you would want to be seated!!
