    A fantastic experience from start to finish! Great open setting in the main body of the restaurant and we loved the vaulted timber frame ceiling and individual drop lights. It was great to be able to see into the kitchen and the added bonus of Chef Askew there keeping his eye on standards. The menu was very good and the Saturday lunch prices fantastic value at £27 for 2 course or £34 for 3 course. Service was very professional throughout. A great addition since our last visit was the Cellar Bar, which we were escorted to by a member of staff through a downstairs passage (very Cluedo!), part of the listed building's charm. Once at the Bar, we were met with a fine selection of drinks, meats and cheeses in vast coolers all topped off with a pianist tinkling the ivories. Couldn't recommend highly enough, just wish we were going back again this weekend!!

    The starter was a trick on taste buds with what I thought was spaghetti turning out to be squid ! Excellent and attentive service and food and wine explanations. The main course of beef was perfectly cooked pink and well presented. I gastronomical delight.

    My wife and I enjoyed the Art School very much. We had the menu excellence which included champagne, canapés, and an amuse bouche. The food was all of a really excellent standard. I enjoyed the fact that I could order high quality wine by the glass rather than buying a bottle which would have been too much alcohol. The service was all really excellent combining charm with attention to detail and knowledge of the dishes and wines. The ambience of the room is stylish, and yet relaxed. All round it was superb

    Everything about our meal last night was stunning! We had the tasting menu with the wine pairing and it was some of the best food and wine I’ve ever tasted. The staff are lovely and very attentive. Paul is such a lovely person and this shines through in the food and the relaxed atmosphere. It was our friends joint 40th and they brought out a plate with happy birthday which was such a fabulous personal touch. Can’t wait to go back ????

    Had a marvellous dinner at Paul Askew's The Art School Restaurant Liverpool. Food 11/10 as expected. Wine was extraordinary thanks to sommelier Octavio with mind boggling experiences and an outstanding service. Make an effort to go there folks! By far the best place in Liverpool!
