We had lovely food and service particularly from Gemma who was so pleasant and efficient. Our daughter had bought a gift voucher back in May for our 25th wedding anniversary and Gemma noticed this when she worked out the bill. She came over with two glasses of champagne on the house which was such a lovely gesture and was much appreciated. We will certainly be back and will recommend to friends and family. P.S we also had a great view of the marina!

Attentive and professional staff. Manager Gianni excellent and very welcoming. As a chef its nice to find a place where every meal was of a 5* standard and tasted so good that no salt and pepper needed! Can't wait to go back and sample more dishes.

I was very disappointed to say the least when we visited Pier 64, we decided to book this restaurant as it sat in an exceptional location with a great reputation. We booked for a table of 2 for myself and my partner as we were celebrating her 30th birthday, we booked the table a month in advance with a request for a nice table and some champagne on arrival. Firstly we were given an average table with no drinks or special extras on arrival to acknowledge our request, never the less we proceeded to order our food and drinks. We ordered two cocktails initially, when they arrived they were intolerable, they had an awful taste and had to be sent back for fresh to be made. Multiple waiters/waitresses came over to our table through out our sitting rather than having the same person which was slightly irritating as you had to explain the same thing to each person, we proceeded to order our food; I ordered the belly pork and my partner ordered the fillet- Medium rare. When the food arrived to our table, my food was just warm and my partners fillet was well done. We sent the fillet back to be redone as this was the most expensive dish on the menu we expected it to be exceptional. After I had finished my food and twenty minutes had gone by, a new fillet appeared. At this point it was too late and my partner has gone past having any food. I was extremely disappointed to say the least as it was supposed to be a special day for a special occasion, I had regretted booking Pier 64. However, after complaining the manager did attend our table and offered complimentary drinks and a free meal for my partner due to all of our troubles. He was extremely attentive to us for the next 30 minutes and explained that there had been a change in ownership and they were working on improving the restaurant. I only wish that this had been the case from the start of our meal and we had been shown the same kind of service prior to experiencing all we did. I would like to visit Pier 64 again as long as the service had improved, as the food we did eat was very well cooked. Thanks Hannah

The host and servers were extremely welcoming, warm and friendly, nothing was too much for our party. We were asked if we were celebrating which we were, a 40th wedding anniversary. To which the host gifted a glass of Prosecco to each of the adults of our party. Which was a beautiful touch, and one that was well appreciated. Also a fussy eater in the party (read teenager) who won’t eat a Sunday roast was provided with his favourite meal, burger and chips! The food was beautiful, wonderfully presented and the right temperature to eat straight away. It’s not often that I enjoy a Sunday lunch out, but this one was something else......the gravy......truly home made, thick and plentiful. The puddings were all well received and the homemade shortbread served with the brûlée was divine!! The service charge was added which made it easier for us. Our only small complaint is that when we broke down the bill at home later, so we could pay our shares, it would seem we were charged £24.95 instead of £23.95 for the 3 course set menu. But as I said we didn’t notice until after, and given the complimentary Prosecco and beautiful menu an extra £ per person was fine. We look forward to visiting again and on a day where we can choose from the full menu, to see what other delights Pier 64 can knock our socks off with!!

Dear Abi Thank you so much for taking the time to post such a comprehensive and lovely review! We are really pleased that you chose us for such a special occasion and I am delighted that you enjoyed our service and food on the day. The prosecco was our pleasure and we are glad you enjoyed this touch to your meal! I must sincerely apologise for the error with your bill. Regardless of the extras we gave you, the bill should have been correct. I suspect it was my clumsy fingers that caused this issue when I was posting your bill! I will give you a call about this to make the appropriate refund to you for the overcharge. Once again thank you for such lovely feedback and we very much look forward to welcoming you back to Pier 64 in the not too distant future! Kindest Regards Gianni & The Team

Portions were a bit on the small side, a few more chips would have been nice. The placing of the napkin by the waitress is unnecessary and doesn’t really do it for me. Overall though a very nice meal.

I have eaten at a number of different restaurants recently and Pier 64 clearly exceeds on all fronts ... in fact the pricing which some may have thought of as ‘high’ is truly not the case when all factors are taken into account. For the same money elsewhere you do not get the personal attention in the way of service ... nor the quality of the food and its presentation ... let alone the brilliant location on the marina side ... it’s maintains its rating as one of my absolute favourite restaurants

Exceptional staff. Lovely food. I thought the palma ham and celeriac needed some form of bread underneath. I thought the a la carte menu was overpriced. A nice place for a special occasion.

Dear Gaynor Thank you for your comments. I am so pleased that you enjoyed the food and the service on your visit. I will certainly feed back to chef regarding the Parma Ham dish as I think this is a great idea! On your next visit you may wish to sample our set menu which is available between 12.00 & 19.00 hrs and represents a really good value option. Obviously the choices are more limited than the a la carte but we use the same ingredients for these dishes as we do on the a la carte so it should be as enjoyable! Thank you again for your feedback.

Dear Oliver Thank you for taking the time to post your comment about your visit. I'm very disappointed to hear that you thought the meal was served too slowly. It's a shame you didn't mention anything to me on the several times I visited your table during your meal as I could have addressed this at the time if you felt things were going a bit slowly. We are working very hard to ensure that meals are being served in a reasonable time without rushing our guests so feedback like this is very helpful to us to measure this. I'm very glad that you at least enjoyed the food. Sincerely Gianni

Service on Monday 5th August was extremely slow and I, and my two friends, were not impressed with having our meals served on wooden boards instead of china plates. I for one have never been a fan of wooded boards as I do not consider them to be as hygienic as china plates.

Dear Chris Thank you for taking the time to post your comment regarding your visit. I am very disappointed to hear that the service was slow for you. Particularly as you were the first table in for lunch. I will certainly speak with the manager on duty that day to feed back to him about your dissatisfaction with the service and of course, offer our sincere apologies that you felt we were slow. As regards the boards we use for some of our dishes, I am sorry that you didn't like these. This is of course a subjective matter and we would have been more than happy to transfer it to a plate for you upon request. I have put a note on your customer profile stating that you do not like the boards so that we can ensure we present food to you on a plate if you are kind enough to visit us again in the future. Once again, thank you for your comments and apologies for the delay in service. Sincerely Gianni D'Aniello Restaurant Manager
