Excellent food and lovely staff
Would highly recommend and we are already looking forward to returning when restrictions permit. The food was superb and the service warm and welcoming. We had a really special meal for my partner's birthday and did not feel rushed whilst also feeling that we were looked after.
great tasting food and friendly staff
Nice and cozy place, lovely food. We would definitely recommend. Thank you!
Fantastic evening, my wife, daughter and I had a great time. Food was exquisite, drinks very nice and the service and ambiance were outstanding. Will definitely visit again
We had a really nice meal. Staff were all very friendly, efficient and helpful.
Absolutely delicious. Thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish. I have not stopped thinking about the Tuna Tartare. Brilliant service and a lovely space.
All our meals were delicious. Quality ingredients used, hence the price.
I was celebrating my 60th birthday and it was the perfect place to celebrate with my family.
I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough! From the moment I started conversations with them about arranging a very small wedding reception in their private dining area, they have been warm, and accommodating, nothing was a problem. The evening of the reception exceeded expectations, the food was amazing and the service was just as good. The restaurant is situation in this gorgeous courtyard area and the decor inside is stunning. I will certainly be coming back here again and again and recommending to everyone. Thank you to the whole team for making our evening so special.
Some starters can be quite generous, the food is always to a high standard, the fish mains are just as good as the meat mains. A restaurant I will continue to support.
Very good food, prepared to the highest standard and good veggie options. Lovely interior, like an old barn. Great cocktails too
We enjoyed our lunch a lot. I have given a low atmosphere rating as we were the only ones there for most of our lunch. The place is lovely and we were treated really well. The food was delicious and we will return after lockdown.
We were disappointed with the quality of the food and the atmosphere. For a restaurant listed in “the good food guide” and displaying an award for best fine dining in St Albans, we were expecting more. It appears as though the restaurant might have changed hands since it’s listing in the good food guide. The loud 80s playlist felt out of place for an “upscale contemporary restaurant”, and whilst the food photos look amazing on the website, they were disappointing in person. Similarly, the menu sounded great, but our meal was below expectations for the price. On a positive note, the staff were pleasant and the sticky toffee pudding was pretty tasty.
The service was great. Very friendly staff and atmosphere. The food was very good quality and delicious. Will return for a special occasion. Drinks were quite pricey though.
Staff was excellent
Great food, portions were perfect so you could comfortably have 3 courses
I will definitely return, a hidden gem!
Food was great and very helpful and friendly staff
Lovely evening, good food and drinks. Will visit again
Great evening. Fantastic food. Very nice attentive staff. Would definitely recommend
The food and drink were excellent in terms of taste and presentation. The service was pretty shoddy, no one knew the menu or the cocktail list. My partner ordered lamb (served with potatoes) and the menu recommended a side of root vegetables. The side dish arrived; a bowl of potatoes and three carrots. A potato isn't even a root vegetable, but besides that, why would you recommend potatoes with a side of potatoes? If they were short on veg supply they should have been honest. Instead they were bamboozled at why we didn't want more potatoes. We had it switched for green beans but there was very little apology or explanation. Disappointing in a restaurant of this price and calibre. There's no point having a great chef, making excellent food if the waiters can't communicate effectively.
Lovely Sunday lunch , generous portions , very good bottle of red Italian wine
The food was great but service was terrible as they were obviously overbooked. Considering the price of the meal it was extremely disappointing to be kept waiting for so long - drinks only arrived half way through the meal and we were given the wrong drinks. It’s not the service staff’s fault - completely down to poor management but nonetheless expected better. Also it was mentioned that the servers were not being given their tips which is absolutely unacceptable practice.
My husband was still chewing his last mouthful of starter when you whipped the plates away and bought the main course. We were finished within 45 mins of entering the restaurant. I’m still annoyed now. I’ll never come back.
