We were a large group visiting on a very busy night, ahead of going to the Theatre. As always with a large group, people were coming in dribs and drabs. The staff were extremely patient, and when we finally managed to gather everyone, were extremely efficient. The food was excellent, and overall I would completely recommend HQ!

I have a bad back and asked for a normal table rather than a high table but I was told no, though there were plenty free. The wine is way overpriced, €34 for a basic wine is just ridiculous

Duck salad starter was tasty but very little duck. All mains were good. A bread basket would have been a nice addition. 12.5% service charge was a bit saucy. That said we would have been happy to leave a good voluntary service gratuity. One of our party broke a wine glass which was cleaned away very discreetly and the complimentary glass was very much appreciated.

We all felt that the portions were a little small, although the quality of the food was excellent.

I felt the menu was quite limited in choice (especially desserts). There was no flexibility to choose other desserts off a la carte. We had fish and beef and while those were nice and a decent portion, there was very little accompanying them. I felt it was very overpriced for a pre-theatre. At 26 for 2 and 32 for 3, one could surmise that starters and mains were 6 each with 20 for the mains. It didn’t really feel like it justified that price.
