We booked a celebratory family meal here and really liked the look of the early evening menu, but unfortunately the music (DJ) was too loud (at 6.30pm on a Friday evening) so we had to leave without eating and find somewhere else! Maybe the music could start a bit later in the night?

The staff were all very friendly and professional. I had mentioned on booking that I had food allergies which were catered for perfectly by the staff and the food was lovely. The atmosphere was relaxed and the live music great. I would definitely book again

We had a great time at the bottomless gin brunch. Pancakes were amazing and we were never without a drink. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Will 100% be returning and will recommend to everyone.

Had a lovely afternoon with our friends. The Food was really tasty as was the wine. There is always a lovely friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The staff are professional, friendly and very helpful. Maisie was our waitress on our last visit and was lovely. Looking forward to our next visit. Would highly recommend NYL restaurant and bar as one of the best places in Liverpool.

We visited on a Wednesday afternoon when it was very quiet and therefore lacking atmosphere. Staff were standing around with not much to do. The afternoon tea was satisfactory. The bread products seemed a little on the dry side. The cocktail we had was really nice!

Service was very very slow, despite the restaurant being pretty much empty. As a table of 15 we were served after two tables turning up after us. Not our fault we were there before them, surely we get served first? Roast dinner was acceptable, but meat overdone and not much in the way of veg. Extra veg brought out after everyone had finished eating.
