    We arrived at Crazy Bear and we were squeezed in between two tables, we politely asked to move and got a slightly better table. It took over 20 minutes to get any sort of drink. I called before the booking and asked that we have a combination of the set menus as we are both pescatarians, which they said were fine. We were supposed to have 12 dishes, and we only had 10. I flagged this before dessert and the waitress laughed. Apart from the sashimi, the food was no better than a takeaway unfortunately. This was an important meal for my partner and I and I felt hugely uncomfortable the entire time. We finished our dessert and then we were immediately asked to move downstairs, even though we had just ordered a glass of wine each. We of course didn’t want to cause any issues for the staff and asked if there were tables and seats downstairs and were told there was, however we got downstairs carrying our drinks, bags and coat and there was no where to sit. I feel truly upset about the whole experience.

    We got there, kicked out and locked out for being 3 minutes early. Entered, didn’t get our coats taken and special requirements had not been noted and we had to say them again. First dish we had was some edamame beans that were cold and having not ordered them before, we had no explanation as to how to eat them with the skin on. It was dark in the restaurant, first few courses that came were dry/lukewarm. The other people with me noted that the best dishes had been the raw ones, which had required no cooking. Pad Thai tasted like it had been re-heated and had a stodgy starchy texture. Slimy aubergine. The most unfortunate thing was that there was so much of this food, but it was all so average. Most definitely could have cooked it better myself at home. Definitely not worth £40 per person. Utterly disappointed.

    I had selected this restaurant from the Michelin website which is usually quite reliable. Unfortunately the experience at Crazy bear wasn't that crazy. Poor service doomed our experience. The food was ok. I chose the vegetarian dinner set (10 plates) and that was very average. It is presented on the menu as a tasting set but comes in a series of 2 sets of 5 dishes I guess. Not much subtlety and inventiveness. I got noodles, rice at the same time, kind of mixed with asian type flavours. Anyhow we wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a foodie experience. Sorry

    The atmosphere was nice. Elegant decor and lovely staff. The meal itself was nice but a little underwhelming to be honest. Thought it would be so lovely because it's quite well known place. Food was average, I've had better than food. Not to say it wasn't nice but not sure it was what I expected for the price. The starters including the seabass sashimi and wage beef tartare were the only real stand out dishes. The others I feel would have been better at a simple Thai restaurant. Nice of them to put on a nice dessert plate for our anniversary but again dessert was lacking somewhat. Lychee cheesecake did not taste of lychee but had an overpowering lemon. Nice to eat but the lychee jelly thing on top was a fail for me.

    Front of house was rude, no one said hello or asked if they could help, just looked at me like I was a mental person when I asked to put my umbrella down in the communal holders. I asked if there was a cloakroom for my bag and coat and again was looked at in the same bizarre way, she then said “wait, are you coming in? do you have a reservation?” Why else would I be putting my things in there ? I asked downstairs where the bathroom was and again was looked at like trash. The ONLY staff member who was nice and attentive was the waiter with the dark hair in a man bun. We ordered the 12 plate signature menu and the mains were like warm, pad Thai was stuck together almost solid.

    Really great experience, a bit long to wait in between courses and food was good, not amazing but would go back.
