Your assistant manager Claire is a little pocket rocket who never stops.. great service as always
Food and drinks were lovely. Unfortunately after spending £600 we were informed our party were ‘too loud for the atmosphere’ and some of our party were refused service at the bar. As a group of professionals on a work day out this was extremely insulting considering some people had only had a couple of drinks. Mixed messages from bar staff and management worsened this problem. Such a shame as I am a regular customer and had recommended this to my colleagues who left feeling embarrassed and angry about the way they were treated.
Great food, very relaxed atmosphere and informal yet professional waiting staff. Enjoyable
Excellent meal, food was lovely and good choice for vegetarians. Great selection of drinks. Only slight hitch was that the £50 deposit that we paid a few weeks earlier wasn’t initially deducted from our bill. However this was rectified when we pointed it out. Staff were attentive and we appreciated the recommendation about the speakeasy bar below
Festive menu turkey escalopes were lovely but Christmas pudding was very dry and tasteless which was disappointing. We were sat on a table for two in the middle of the dining space where there were lots of empty tables not taken around the edge and at the window so we felt kind of ‘on display’. Also our bill had to be readjusted as we were charged for drinks which were not ours.
Went here with a few friends for a meal & drinks.The service was very good and friendly which was quick. The food was lovely and tasty and everyone enjoyed their meals. The drinks were of a good quality and choice. I would definitely go back.
Had our works Christmas night out here doing the cocktail class. We had a 2 course meal first which we all thought was brilliant. A glass of prosecco each waited for us when we arrived though to the cocktail class. We were then shown how to make 3 cocktails and had such fun making them ourselves. We were then given tapas. Bar man who was showing us was brilliant. There was 8 of us and everyone of us said what we had was definitely value for money. The staff were all polite and attentative. We could not have picked a better place to have our works night out. We all had so much fun would definitely do this again.
A lovely meal and start to the evening, however bar staff very inexperienced to cater for the party night on his own. Unfortunately the "party night" entertainment was extremely below par. "Ally Bally" as advertised turned out to be crude and offensive and a far cry from the radio entertainer as expected. Particularly with his foul language and derogatory comments. The night was cut short for our table due to the awkward nature of the DJ and the lack of atmosphere from other tables leaving. A good start however very disappointing as the night went on. Not at all the standard we expected for an evening at 172 The Caird.
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.
