“Strictly for foodies”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

Went for lunch with some work colleagues and all had the 3 course fixed lunch menu.

Small serves, one course v good, others average. Very much a restaurant for serious food types whom I'm sure would appreciate it better. But if you're looking for a good feed best look elsewhere.

“Overall a good experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

We went to Ezard on a friends recommendation and manage to snag a booking last minute. Unfortunately, my partner was delayed more than once flying in so we had to change the time of our reservation more than once. This wasn't a problem for them and we werent made to feel like an inconvenience even though we knew they were fully booked. This was a reflection of the wonderful service this restaurant provided. Apart from our gnocchi being cold and the very chilly temperature inside, the food was lovely and the drinks were served to perfection. Service as I said, brilliant from all staff. Definitely give this place a go!

“A truly great meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

We went with friends as a celebration meal. The 8course degustation was the way we chose to eat. Some of the party had allergies and dislikes so the staff changed the menu to suit -not haphazardly but with great care. The balance of the meal was most important to them and they did a wonderful job. Each course was sufficient to appreciate the taste, but not so much that it spoilt the next course or filled you up prematurely. I would like to return and have an a la carte meal as well. The menu looked sensational.

“1st visit fantastic, 2nd one not so great-don't have late dinner seating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

1st visit with kids (I know, what were we thinking?) was brilliant. After discussion with the friendly & accommodating staff we arranged for 4 adults & 2 kids to have the degustation menu & other 2 kids had choices off the main menu. They matched the timing of all meals perfectly, & all meals were magnificent!
2nd time around our booking was for 9.30pm but we weren't seated until almost 11pm! We were sent upstairs for drinks at Adelphi's bar - firstly at our expense, then offered free drink which didn't come as bar staff told us our table was ready, which it wasn't. Restaurant staff were apologetic & supplied us with a bottle (or 2?) of French champagne to drink while waiting in their seating area, but by the time we got to our table our decision-making abilities were impaired & we chose to have the degustation menu. We finished dinner at 1am & couldn't remember anything about the last couple of courses! Staff were lovely & never made us feel like we should hurry up, but if they had hurried up the earlier diners who didn't leave in time for our booking, we would have been happier.
We will go back again I'm sure, but not for the late sitting.
