The staff were really polite and helpful. The chef agreed to change some of the dishes to suit my intolerances of certain foods. Food was attractive and delicious.

Terrible experience on Saturday 15th June. Had booked table for two online for 16.45 hours. Arrived hotel at 16.30 hrs. Asked a hotel barman the location of the podium restaurant. He directed us to a member of staff at a desk near Cloud 23 lift. Spoke to the concierge there who said 'it's not here, it's where you've just come from'. Went back to the bar area and spoke to a manager who said the kitchens don't open 'till 5 pm, and did we want to wait in the bar. This was at 17.00 hrs, but the booking was for 16.45 hrs. My companion was then asked if she wanted the 'groupon fish offer' - so amateurish and inappropriate. We did not expect to be offered a table in a very busy restaurant - I was expecting to be seated in the restaurant on floor 23, as implied by information on your website. The manager offered us a complimentary drink on the condition that we dined, in exchange for for a ruined evening, then a discount on the food bill, which we declined, as the occasion had been ruined. We left without dining, having had 45 minutes of our time wasted. Appalling.

My friend and I dined in the restaurant on Sunday evening. The decor is beautiful and the atmosphere is relaxing and cosy. The service we received was excellent. Our waiters were polite, friendly, helpful and professional. My friend and I each had dietary requirements which were expertly handled by the staff. The food was well presented and tasted delicious. We recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning again in the near future.

Food was lovely and great customer service. Vegetarian options were very limited and therefore the vegetarian guest attending was not happy with the food. Also no V signs on the desserts so had to ask a member of staff.

So disappointed! I booked this as it was our ten year anniversary and this is where we went for our first date. Couldn’t do the evening as there was an event on so opted for breakfast. I booked for 1045 on the telephone only to be called and told that I had to move it to 10am and could only have 30 minutes! I had already booked early spa treatments in the hotel I was staying at which then had to be cancelled because I was made to move times! This ruined our day. I would have cancelled but I called 6 times, mostly no one bothered to answer and when they did I left messages to get someone to call me back, no one ever did. I also bought t on groupon so had no choice but to come or waste my money. Got there to a below average breakfast, greasy eggs and miserable staff. We do very disappointed in the whole experience. I would actually like a response to this please. Thanks

Service was lovely, excellent staff and manor. Unfortunately we had a long wait for food. The starter was quite disappointing and very small (trio of beetroot with goats cheese) We waited 20 minutes from ordering for this and then a 35 minute wait from our starters being taken away to our mains arriving. However the food was delicious, well presented and very tasty. The staff were very apologetic and kept us informed and ensured we had sufficient drinks (all be it paid for) I think the long wait may deter us from visiting again

We had a Groupon coupon for fish and chips with prosecco which was an excellent present. Although the dining room was very quiet, it was very comfortable and ideal for our needs. The bar is expensive and cocktails subpar but this is my only fault. I would definitely consider rebooking. The food and service were excellent.
