“first time here tonight! 2 adults and 2 children under 9. Absolutely loved it, the place looks amazing very modern, the food was unbelievable and the service was excellent. Our main table waiter Paddy was friendly and good fun to chat with whilst serving us, something you don’t tend to get in many restaurants ! Cheers buddy. Great evening ”

Went in on Easter Monday at around about tea time, the restaurants aesthetic was creative displaying an American diner type of feel. We were seated and both shared a smoke tray which was delicious and more than enough food! We then decided to share a peanut butter cheesecake which again was delicious. The staff were attentive and friendly; our waitress, hamiza (apologies if incorrect) ensured we were more than okay throughout our whole meal, asking if the food was okay or if we wanted more drinks etc. Overall, I would recommend and there is no doubt we will be back for more!!

Given I'd eaten here before I recommended this venue to my work colleagues for our xmas party (we decided to have it Jan), and a number of the staff expressed they were eager to try the food here.
The waiter missed one full meal from the order when the food came to us about 50mins/1hr later, despite us coming in with a chart (my manager is super organised) of all the individual orders including sides for each etc.
Because a number of other waiters/waitresses helped bring our meals over none of them noticed one meal was missing until we called them back over. He apologised, and said he'd get the chef to make it immediately. By the time this guys food came almost everyone else had finished eating, it must've taken an extra 15-20mins. The waiter (after he was asked) did say he'd sort the bill and take this meal off on the house for the issue. He came to the table shortly after and asked the man what he was drinking, and brought him over a whisky and coke or something. When we came to pay, the guy did not point out he couldnt give us that meal on the house which assumingly is why he brought out the drink and gave him that on the house. Food in here is great but the service really is not on the same level! Most of the staff everytime I looked appeared to be flirting with each other and messing around near the kitchen, and when they pass the table they are very hard to catch if you want to ask for something. The guy who served us was actually very nice I must point out, but missing off a meal when youre given the full order ready printed on a spreadsheet is pretty dumb mind- you'd think he would've just counted the sheet vs the till or whatever when inputting the orders.

Went for lunch on Saturday, I had the brisket pickle sandwich, the other half had a burger, both were very large and very tasty. The food is american diner style fayre (which I love) so don't come expecting anything fancy. The service was excellent,quick and attentive without being intrusive and sensible advice on menu choices, I'm sure that we'll be back. My only advice - come hungry!
