The food was excellent, as was our waiter. However there needed to be two of him - it was very busy and he was rushed off his feet. Everyone was asking for their bills at the same time, hence it was very slow at the end, especially as we all wanted to get into the theatre.
Noisy. Food v good. Bill slow to arrive and staff had to be reminded twice. I never give either 1 or 5 stars in any rating .Rarely is anything dire or fantastic.
Excellent service, great atmosphere.
Fish cakes ordered none left, tried again same thing with the lamb,how can you run out of dishes by 6.pm. Very disappointed.however the duck substitute was quite tasty.
Staff were very friendly and helpful
Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner, we were looking after superbly as always. Thank you.
The food and service were superb. The noisy music and of the noise of audiences in the interval and after the show rather spoiled our evening, but this is a small criticism. Great food.
One of my favourite places in Bristol! Delicious food in a lovely atmosphere, full of delight. I highly recommend.
Amazing food! Congratulations to the chef!
Very disappointed there was no beef left at 2.30, we waited 15minutesforthe drinks order to be taken. Then had to ask again for the food order to be taken We have had lots of meals with you and always enjoyed, but not this time sadly.
Great food, drink and atmosphere
Excellent service and a great experience
Liked 2 for 1 cocktails!
Loved the pan seared salmon!
Excellent service, warm welcome, friendly, patient waiting staff. Delicious food, swift service. Thank you
Delicious food and friendly helpful waiters! It was on the more expensive side but worth it for the atmosphere and convenience. It was our first visit since the re-design and we were really impressed. Love it!
All OK, just, serving staff a little distracted (too busy?) but quite pleasant. Food took a longish time to come, again just ok. This is our second visit.
Great food and service at a good price.
My first time at The Bristol Old Vic, great production of A Christmas Carol and the restaurant was perfect for us. This will become a new Christmas Tradition for us.
I found the service slow, 20 minutes to before our drinks were served, and 40 minutes before we received the first course. It was hard to know which wait staff was covering our table. Considering it was close to Christmas they were a miserable bunch, Only the manager had any sense of how to "work a table and customers". I doubt i would eat here again.
Excellent food, venue and staff!
One of the best meals I’ve had for a long time. Delicious and interesting food, spacious yet cosy environment, beautiful building, friendly and helpful staff. We are already looking at when we can return...
Fantastic pre-show roast enjoyed by all the family...
Confusion over prepaid price meant we ended up being overcharged but we left it Meal was excellent Atmosphere great Service a little slow for initial drink order
The creation of the big 'foyer' is a great addition to Bristol. It has all the atmosphere of a continental pavement cafe/restaurant yet with all-year usability.
