Just to say we had recently a very enjoyable evening at the Art School. The staff were very attentive and talked about the dishes we were presented with. The food was tasty and of a high standard. The place was also inviting and a lovely contrast from the Bar area.

    We had the most amazing time at the Art School. We started with drinks in the Cellar bar which is such a lovely bar with fabulous comfy seats. We were the. Taken to the restaurant and seated. The restaurant itself is a beautiful setting, with a large window so you can see into the kitchen. The staff were really friendly, professional and knowledgeable- we loved the sommelier. We had the tasting menu and it was a fantastic experience. We also enjoyed the wine flight (I had a mini one). The flavours are beautiful and the food presented in such a gorgeous manner.
    Would give the experience 10/10 - can’t wait to return

    Great food, first and second course. Well done. The cheese selection was poor (was told no vintage cheddar available by the staff) was it worth the £300?? I’ve had good meals with a similar dining experience for less, Not slating the restaurant or the staff just giving some constructive feedback. Hope it helps.

    This was the the first experience of dining at the Art School . The staff are excellent, very knowledgeable and it is evident passionate about the service they provide and the food they serve. The food was fantastic, cheese spinach soufflé was lovely that’s from a non veggie. The desert sharing platter was beautiful but almost caused an argument as my partner didn’t really get the whole sharing concept! Although filling I could have ate it twice over. Definitely will be returning here

    We eat in a lot of good restaurants including Michelin as often as we can and having never tried the Art School, took advantage to try the pre theatre menu as we were tied to time. As I mentioned at the end of our meal it was good, but for me not great however. My partner and I reflected while we were eating and comparing to our other experiences I am glad we didn’t opt to spend a lot of money to come and try the tasting menu. Only small things but worth mentioning I think. The fish was just a tad over cooked as was the cheese soufflé which was also very sadly deflated. The lentils were for me, a tad undercooked and the little bread rolls where a bit tough to cut. Don’t get me wrong, these little things aside, the food was delicious, just keeps me away from eating it great

    We had a wonderful afternoon at The Art School to celebrate my wife's birthday. Everything about the place is superb - the staff, the food, the service and even a brilliant cocktail lounge to finish off the visit. We have been to The Art School a few times now and each time we have had a really enjoyable experience. It is head and shoulders above every other restaurant in Liverpool and Paul Askew can be rightly proud of what he and his staff have achieved. My starter of mackerel with summer veg is a tomato jus and my main of Herdwick lamb were both delicious. My wife had the wood pigeon started and the hake with champ main and she was delighted with her choice. We shared a dessert platter which was gorgeous. This was our best meal out since our last visit to The Art School and we'll definitely be back.

    Superb service! excellent sommelier, and the food was beautiful,interesting,and seasonal . We enjoyed the "menu excellence" before an eve at the Philharmonic Hall , the service was not rushed but mindful that we wished to eat our meal in a two hour window our table service was friendly and attentive
    Excellent so we are returning in December
    We eat in many Michelin starred venues and this definitely deserves its own star
