We booked a table for 4 at 8pm on Friday evening. We arrived to be stood waiting for someone to greet us for a good while. Eventually we approached a guy to ask about our booking. We were taken to a table that was not ours. Half of their party were already seated and didn’t look impressed. We were then left to wait amongst other guests eating whilst the staff asked a group of men to leave the table they were sat at so we could sit down... what happened to our booking? Sitting down, we ordered drinks with a gent. They arrived and one was wrong, it was replaced. A lady approached a short time later and took our food order. We sat enjoying conversation although the music was a bit dominating. Considering it isn’t a large dining area we wondered where our food was. After around 30 minutes our food arrived. One dish (sharing) being incorrect, it was taken and replaced. Two other meals were left with us and to save our food going cold, we started eating but realised that we might as a group end up eating separately as the nachos took another 20 minutes to arrive. When questioned, the staff said there are other people waiting for food so there is a delay.... 4 tables eating as I could see... one of us asked for more drinks, he took the order for one drink and wandered off. Called him back and he was accomanied by a lady who told him she would take the order. Took the order and the first drink ordered was forgotten when they arrived but by this point we’d lost interest. The food was good. I enjoyed it. But it was spoilt by the staff. No greeting for booked diners. They should have taken all meals away whilst they replaced one dish, being a small table. We were argued with when we voiced our concerns and half the group ate before the other half did. I get Friday evening attracts a diffeeent crowd to evening diners but if your staff are not able to adapt accordingly, stick to one or the other. The fact we were told it was his second week and he’s French but next time he’ll be better was laughable... to think we’ll come back for the service we received. Such a shame, the food was pretty good, you need to work on your staff training. Well not be back unfortunately. Ashley cross has the right idea, we’ll go there next time.

I visited for my birthday and while the service and food was great til we had finished our mains, the waitress then disappeared without asking if we wanted a dessert. When we realised it had been half an hour we decided to leave. This was a shame because your dessert menu looked delicious and as it was my birthday my dessert would have been free. Its a shame. otherwise everything else was great.

Booked a table over the phone with a gentleman who was lovely, he promised a free birthday cocktail or dessert, when we were seated I mentioned about the free cocktail and the waitress wasn't impressed, she came back and said they can only do a prosecco as I don't like prosecco I asked for a small alternative she said no, so I suggested what about a small glass of the drink I was enjoying she begrudgingly agreed. We were at the table for about 2 hours buying a lot of drinks but was constantly be pestered if we were ordering food and if we had more people coming to join us, in 2 hour we were asked every 20minutes or so, the restaurant wasn't busy as it was a very hot day so most people were outside enjoying the weather. We just felt as if we weren't welcome in the restaurant.

Considering it was an early lunch and it was very quiet the service was fairly slow. We were recommended by colleagues who said it was fast and efficient for a work lunch but in actual fact we were out much longer than we would have normally been. Most of us were happy with our meals when they did come and payment was straightforward but again they were slow to arrange the card machine.

This was our second visit to Dancing Moose Bournemouth and we had a wonderful lunch. Service was brilliant, considering there was only one waitress on during a boiling hot Saturday afternoon and food was delicious. Will definitely be returning again.
