The food was great as always. The service was unacceptable. Despite booking our table for 2pm it wasn't ready. We then had to wait for an hour and a quarter for our starters, and another hour for our mains. Drinks orders were mixed up too. I have a booking with the Caird in a few weeks for a conference and am slightly concerned now.

There were 44 of us for a gamily gathering. Food was good, reasonably priced and staff attentive. Very busy but we were lucky we were given exclusive use of the upstairs. And did I mention the fabulous coctails? Thanks so much for making our night a great success and we will definitely be back!

We enjoyed a fantastic cocktail experience st 172 at The Caird. Dhugal was great fun and the whole experience was well presented. The overall atmosphere was really good and we enjoyed the live music too. Highly recommend.

We had a great evening at the Caird. We started the evening with a couple of drinks in the bar downstairs then headed upstairs for our meal. The food was nice, the drinks took a long time to arrive but the room upstairs lacked atmosphere. We moved onto cocktail making which was hosted by Dougal who was BRILLIANT! We really enjoyed the experience, the cocktails and the tapas board was a nice touch. The glass of prosecco on arrival to the cocktail making was too much along side cocktails and would have been nicer before our meal. I'd recommend this for a group or few people looking for a fun night.

Excellent dinner and service. Fabulous atmosphere on a Saturday evening. Dougall made our cocktail making class great fun but disappointed that we paid for this to be upstairs but ended up doing it at the crowded bar on a Saturday evening! Not what we paid for!

Having previously had a less than inspiring visit to 172 a year ago I was reticent about booking for myself and 9 guests. I needn’t have worried. The staff were so attentive.....especially Adam who was so patient and helpful. The food was excellent, clean plates all round. The pre theatre menus is great value. I’ll definitely return.

One of our company received a steak that was poorly chosen and difficult to eat. It was promptly replaced, but spoilt his enjoyment of the event. Maybe you should have a chat with your suppliers and ensure better quality provision. Otherwise the event was a great success and we will be considering a re-run later this year.

Our office chose the Caird for our festive lunch in December and we were a bit disappointed. There were no Christmas decorations in the room, no festive music playing, and while we were in the only other tables were small groups of 2-4 persons so there was no atmosphere. The service was average - a dietary request which had been submitted with the pre-orders was missed so a member of our party had to wait while a new dish was prepared for her; it was difficult to catch the eye of waiting staff, especially after our meal so we struggled to order more drinks. The food was average - most people were disappointed with one or more of their courses, so it was overall a fairly disappointing experience.

Had two very enjoyable meals here in December. The staff were excellent and the timing between the courses. (Another outlet in Dundee had us eat 3 courses in 50 mins! - another large home now hotel). Thoroughly enjoyed the pianist and he played a recommendation for my birthday. My favourite place to dine.

Came in for a work event which was a cocktail masterclass and lunch. Everyone commented on how much fun was had and how friendly Sam and George were for the cocktail class. We are considering doing this again in the summer. Excellent value and a great laugh. Highly recommended.
