Empty establishment on a Sunday lunch time is never a good sign. 2 of us not feeling well after eating there is even worse.

Waiting staff were professional and smart, shame about the lady management. She looked very scruffy and not smart or professional at all. Our started came out 20 mins after ordering and our mains were delivered within 30 seconds of the starter being cleared. This was too soon. We would prefer at least 15 minutes between courses. I did mention this to the scruffy lady but she just shrugged her shoulders and said nothing. The food was fantastic, the house red wine like vinegar, not great. Will return but not too soon.

I have always been a fan of the excellent food and service of the Shetland Hotel, however, based on my recent visit, it is very likely that I will not be returning, My partner and I visited for lunch, we were seated and had drinks orders taken and we were given menus. 2 tables were then seated after us, one consisting of 2 gentleman and one consisting of 4 ladies, both of these tables had their food orders taken before us, we waited 10 minutes for our food orders to be taken when there were not many people in the restaurant. Our order was taken, then we waited, a total of 45 minutes before our food arrived, in this time, both tables who were seated after us, had been served their food, the table of 2 gentleman had been served 2 courses and had left before our food had even arrived. When our food did arrive, the chef had "Forgotten" my mushrooms as part of the Garni for my steak, a member of staff then brought these out, 5 mins after the meal being brought out. My partner had asked for the "American Style Skinny Fries" with his fish as he preferred these to the other chips but was brought the twice cooked chips. I also ordered an extra portion of onion rings with the mean for my partner and I to share, I was not given these, I was given only the onion rings as part of my Garni. I was however, still charges for these! I am extremely unhappy with this level of service and I am saddened that this has happened as I have had nothing but excellent experiences with the place!

Have been to the Waterfront a few times, one of my favourite places to eat out. Recently we held my mam's surprise lunch at The Waterfront. We weren't disappointed. The staff were very attentive, ensured we had everything we needed, even helped 'hide' the cake until after our meal.

I requested my starter to not have cheese on it as I strongly dislike it, so did my friend simply because he didn't feel like cheese. Only the waitress did not hear my request, I asked her again to make sure there was no cheese on it but I still got cheese on my starter. Luckily my friend was generous to swap with me so I still got a starter without cheese on it. Generally we all felt disappointed with that waitress as she came across as rude and unpleasant, the only reason I have given 2 stars for service is because the other waiter/waitress we got was very polite. As for the food; we all enjoyed the food very much but portion sizes were quite small considering what we were paying. And we all felt the drinks weren't large enough, ended up all drinking irn bru since you got a bigger glass with irn bru. Overall, the 4 of us enjoyed our meal but there is certain aspects we would like to see improving if we are to come back.
