Customer reviews for Hotel du Vin - Poole
((((* 5 August 2015 by Ann from Poole
From the moment we entered - we felt like we would have a special evening! The building is beautiful and the restaurant and terrace very nice in decor. We were shown to our table and from then the service was not as attentive as we would like - we ordered wine at the start and then had to request it when we got our mains.... our water glasses were not topped up til after dessert....had it had not been my husbands birthday - i would have complained but didn't wish to ruin a special day. We had at least 4 different people serve us...
But we have to say the food made up for the service - it was superb - so would return on the strength of that alone and just hope the service is better next time!

A fabulous meal would highly recommend. Food was excellent and service exemplary even though we were not dining al la carte the attention to detail was just as good

Good service, friendly staff, nicely presented and tasty food. Very enjoyable. A table cloth would have been nice and better than bare wood is my only suggestion for improvement.

We went to the Hotel Du Vin for a romantic evening. The food, the wine and the ambience were very good, but what made this an exceptional evening was the superb service - very attentive with just the right balance of friendliness and humour. We will certainly return.

This was a very good evening out from start to finish. Barman who was friendly and cordial greeted and served us in the lounge with complimentary olives and nuts - along with our drinks. Food and staff in the restaurant were very good. The set-menu from Booktable included four choices from starter, main and desert/cheese. We were four so we were able to try most things. Food was very tasty and well presented. Staff were attentive without always asking if everything was okay. The cheese board consisting of French cheeses was exceptional - and served and the correct temperature for cheese. The glass of wine with the deal was fine and tap water was available. Just a shame there were not more people in the bistro.

Ambiance pretty with candles. Food very good,. Service very good,friendly waitress.Only disappointment ,Vegetables were not included,so had to pay extra £7 for two veg portions. Impossible to eat a large duck leg with just a few lentils,so obliged to pay extra..Lots of free water and wonderful bread.
