Really good ! Accomadated kids with no problems. Pity about double booking up stairs but all went well.
Staff were very attentive however some were lacking in basic hospitality training. The man with the glasses wasn't very good at waiting tables. He was so impatient when we were trying to order from the wine list and didn't even take the list away after we had given our order. He was clearly more suited to working in a more casual dining atmosphere. No fresh napkin given for dessert too. We were also served by 4 different members of staff. And there was no toilet paper in the ladies. Overall good experience but twice it's been let down by chaotic waiting staff that need to attend a basic course in hospitality service.
Fantastic graduation celebration meal. Service was excellent. Can’t fault anything. It was a perfect afternoon & just what we wanted.
Had a lovley time,, warm welcome and very. Nice cocktails,on bar area,before,being shown to our table. Excellent !,
Food, service, value (with Itison) all excellent. Great menu choice and the cocktails are fabulous. I recommend the cheesecake cocktail. The restaurant lighting can be slightly gloomy at lunch time but in the evening it’s perfect.
we were at your cocktail making session on Friday night. all our company really enjoyed themselves. well worth the money thank you for a great night
Food was amazing and service was friendly.
Amazing value with the itison voucher
Food and service was fantastic. The area where we were sitting was really cold and down stairs in the toilet area was extremely cold too. Other than that we had a fantastic night and moved through to the bar for drinks so whole night was spent in the caird. Fantastic
Amazing value for money and great food
Lovely surroundings, nice atmosphere & staff courteous
This was the 3rd Cocktail making experience I have done but the first one at 172 @ The Caird. Comparing the 3 this was by far the best value. For £35 we had a 2 course meal, excellent portion size and standard, followed by a 2 hours cocktail making experience. We went to the upstairs bar and were greeted with a glass of prosecco. We each got to make 3 cocktails and were also given some shots. IA generous serving of Tapas was also laid on but we were all too full from our earlier meal to devour it all! Would highly recommend and would do it again.
What a gem 172 @ The Caird is. All of our party admired the setting. Food portions were generous, service was great. Will be back!
I love going to 172 @ the Caird , always a happy and great time
Fantastic food and cocktails however menu was very limited which would stop us returning. Service was fantastic - waiter was polite and efficient.
Had a lovely meal and cocktails were amazing thank you so much will definitely be back
This is the second function we have had here this year, can't fault anything, the only downside is there is no beer on draught upstairs in function suite & you have to run up & downstairs to get a pint.
Had a very enjoyable meal and cocktails 2 for 10 pounds are amazing
Had a fabulous delicious lunch at 172 Caird it has a varied menu with reasonable prices the atmosphere in the dining area us lively and atmospheric . The only snag was that Owe had to wait a while for our order to be taken as only 2 servers were on and the place was full . Saying that this did not put me off and I would thoroughly recommend dining there .
Cocktail making class was excellent and the bar staff made the experience even better
Awesome and fantastic would sum up the experience I had at 172. They serviced over 100 of my team over 4 nights and everything was perfect. Claire - the manager ran these nights with perfection and cannot thank the chefs/kitchen staff and the overall team enough. Very memorable and wouldn't hesitate to recommend or visit here again.
Our latest dinner at The Caird 172, excellent as always. Keep up the sterling work!
We want to say that the waiting staff that served us were great. We gave 1 star for service because the food was very slow to come out and the place was not particularly busy. Equally we had all pre-ordered the meal so they knew what we were having. The lamb in the main course was rather tough as well. Overall enjoyed the experience but the service let it down.
We chose this venue to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary...... what a day we had, it was fabulous. Part of the outdoor seating area was set aside for approx 35people with buffet. The buffet was 1st class and all our guests commented about the quality of the food. All in all a very enjoyable day was had by all. Thank you to staff and management.
I booked 172 @ The Caird for my graduation meal. I had the best time- could not be happier with the service and the food and menu was excellent! It was also really lovely not to be required to give our table back after the meal as this meant we could sit in the bar and have a drink before the meal. The whole experience was really special and I would not hesitate to recommend.
