About Ad Lib - Hope Street
Ad Lib, in Hope Street, famous for its gourmet burgers, is one of the best known eateries in town. The New York/American themed interior is eye catching but not overstated. We won’t wish that you have a nice day, but we will offer friendly and attentive service.
Outside, the distinctive orange and black Ad Lib logo draws our customers to us. Inside, an impressive,and huge, Times Square mural is the focal point of the long, narrow bar.
The restaurant, with its distinctive glass ceiling, is designed as a series of booths along two walls with a central seating area creating an atmosphere which can be open or intimate. You choose.
Best restaurant ever
All was good on the night, however, we nearly never came as the online booking only gives a 90-minute time slot. As it was quiet, due to the start of the virus, the staff were happy for us to stay longer. If the 90-minute timeslot was being used, we would have eaten elsewhere instead. Best Regards, Dr. Martin Woods
Staff were very attentive and friendly, service was great and food and drink was fantastic, would highly recommend and will definitely be back, great for a pre-theatre or just for grabbing drinks
Excellent place for a wee night out!
We had a great dinner
The place is pleasant enought but a bit over priced. £11 for a bacon cheese burger without chips is way too much, and it wasn't so good as to justify this. The crab cakes were also disappointing, clearly just deepfried from frozen. People and service was pleasant, but food not up to scratch and too expensive, so I'm afraid we won't be back.
The best starter ever... buttermilk chicken waffles!
Lovely as usual.
Despite the restaurant being busy last night, we never felt like we waited overly long for our food. Both of our servers were great, and the food was delicious as always. We keep coming back, and haven’t been disappointed yet.
Excellent evening - thank you!
Lovely afternoon in ad lib, great food, drinks and service for a family group. Maybe some upgrades needed to make the place more child friendly! High chairs/changing facilities. Quite a few families in. We hadnt been in a while but look forward to coming back soon.
Always enjoy visiting Ad Lib, and I've since recommended to friends.
Best place in town.
I was a bit disappointed on arrival, uncomfortable seating, depressingly shabby decor and the toilets need urgent attention! Thankfully the staff were attentive and friendly and the food was excellent, arguably the most important parts of the experience.
4th visit with friends in as many months and didn't dissapoint. Great food, drink and staff. Look forward to our next visit.
Good value food in relaxed atmosphere
Took quite a while to get our order taken but other than that it was great.
Food was great though did take a long time to arrive. Staff unfriendly. It was as if because the impose a sevice charge for tables of 6 or more, there was no need to be friendly or make any effort. Pity because as insaid, food was delicious
Great service and value for money
Food was excellent and was complemented by the beers on offer.
Staff very welcoming and attentive. Food was wonderful.
Food was good value for money and staff were lovely.
We hadn't been for a few months and the menu had changed. We ordered 6 small plates between the 2 of us and they were all brilliant. Would highly recommend.
Great food. Great service. Most enjoyable.
Excellent food and Service, would defo be back.
