Unusually quiet night in Café Rouge. I love the food there although always use vouchers as otherwise it can be pricey for what is essentially a chain restaurant. This time was a little irritating as the waitress took £60 vouchers when she could and should have taken £50 so some was wasted. Ambience a bit too quiet. They were waiting for us to leave! I like the new menu but my friend thought it uninspiring and I wonder whether that's why it's quieter than usual . Staff were fine.
Not very busy so excellent service
We had a lovely evening, the restaurant had run out of rocket so our waitress went to the local Tesvo and bought some more.
We loved the restaurant, lovely atmosphere, lots of choice for food, waitress was very friendly and welcoming.
We had a very nice relaxing meal served by a pleasant attentive wairess thank you
Booked for my daughters 17th started off ok starters arrived but then had to wait nearly an hour for mains to arrive
The food wasn't very good and we did complain about the service and the food and the waiter explained the chef was training and they had changed the recipes.
He offered to reduce the bill but was very unhappy when we produced vouchers so then didn't take any money off even though
We still had to pay money on top. A disappointing meal and evening and we won't be going back.
You get what you expect value good but 2 for 1 on mains helped!! Service not outstanding even though it was quiet
7.30pm table. Waitress couldnt recommend a wine as she didnt drink it! took 25mins to get the wine. Waitress also didnt understand how the chefs steaks came out as different chefs do cook diferently. The starter wasnt very nice and she didnt make any comment. The main course was lovely as was the wine I choose. Waitress too young and too inexperienced!
Our party of 7 had a very disappointing meal here at the beginning of May 2011. When we arrived we were swiftly shown our table - booked for 7pm, drinks were served and our orders taken. Our first course arrived at 8.15pm. Our second course arrived at 9.15pm beautifully cooked but cold. We asked them to replace the chips which arrived 15 minutes later, also cold. we skipped desert but decided to have liqueur coffees, some much sugar had been put in the coffee it was virtually undrinkable. Such a shame as we were celebrating a friends' birthday. The staff did reduce the bill but it ruined an evening out for a group of foodies.
