Food was fabulous, but the timing of our meals suffered. As we had set aside 90 minutes for our dinner to be able to get to the theatre without rushing our meal, we felt calm knowing we had 6 courses to get through because the first three came immediately. Then there was a 40- minute hiatus, so I mentioned to the server that we only had 35 more minutes and still 3 courses to go. They said no worries, it'll be right out, and yet it still took another 15 minutes before the next course came out. We had to take one course in a doggy bag and shoved our dessert down in under a minute... all beautiful food, just DON'T expect it to be quick!

Went to Pretty Boy as a part of the Fork festival. Had the Emerald Valley Short Rib and Black Truffle gnocchi - both gorgeous. Atmosphere is great, especially sitting at the bar watching the kitchen up close. Definitely recommend for date night.

Excellent value because of the Fork 50% off food bill offer. Also food quality was very good. Service was very slow on a Sunday evening but we were with friends so it was ok. Realise the kitchen provides room service to hotel guests but we were there for over 3 hours. Not the fault of the wait staff who were great.

We requested a quiet romantic table, and were sat in just that. Our waitress Maria was very attentive and was wary of our tight schedule with our movie after dinner to make sure we had time to enjoy our meals they came out super fast and the truffle gnocchi was amazing. We will be back of course!

Surprisingly nice steak place tucked away in a hotel. Claudia, our server was brilliant and personable. Knew her dishes, service with a smile, the right amount of banter and attentive without being intrusive. We had no idea of was only her second day there. The decor while not bad, had a very hotel feel about it. An update would be nice but isn't essential. The kobe beef was cooked perfectly as were the sides. The wines we ordered were also surprisingly good. Good value, excellent service - I will definitely be returning.

Really enjoyed a great meal (very tender steak, fantastic gnocchi and artichoke/witlof salad etc, plus delicious dessert). Excellent service. Thanks for a good night! You were a little bit hard to find as the signage outside wasn't great and we had to ask someone where you were. Otherwise - top notch, thanks!

We ordered the Japanese steak..was meant to be 350g but it was tiny! We had to keep asking for more water..the service was quite slow and they were not busy at all. Quite dissatisfied

A great experience. Great food. Was catching up with a few friends I hadn't seen in years and we ended up chatting past 12, the staff were thoughtful enough to leave us be. I would highly recommend this gem!

Wait staff need to know what the items are on the menu and have tasted what they are serving. Side selection very limited.

Not a full restaurant for a Friday evening. Called from the hotel room to see if I was able to get a table - phone not answered on multiple occasion. Had to resort to using the online booking system to reserve my table. Arrived and there was no one at the front desk. Finally was shown to my table and drink order was taken. Drinks were served but no further service (no food menu provided). Food menu had to be requested. Food ordered (entree and main). Waited for 40 mins for food to arrive - both entree (squid) and main (Kobe steak) was served at the same time. Steak was ordered medium rare - while it was medium rare, surface was so charred it left an unpleasant bitter taste. Side (fries) was so salty that it was inedible. No refill of water throughout the meal. Note that the customer who sat next to me waited 40 mins for the mains - they were told on 3 occasions that their mains were "on the way as we speak". We both received our food at the same time. Issues: Kitchen not communicating (flow and mixing up orders) and food charred and side too salty; Front staff appeared disorganized and not attentive - manager appeared having to run around with setting up, cleaning up tables etc. leaving customers waiting at the front for service. Not a very good impression seeing that this is meant to be the hotel's main restaurant. Very disappointing meal.

The food was outstanding, I have now eaten here twice and will definitely be back. Will take my husband next time as he is quite fussy. I have no doubt he will love it, stay tuned.

Abbiamo mangiato ottimamente la carne (da italiani abbiamo evitato pasta e pizza, come sempre quando siamo all’estero), bello l’ambiente e il personale gentile e professionale. Unica critica: in un ristorante italiano trovare acqua francese ... non si fa dai!

My meal was disgusting and I sent it back and didn't order anything to replace it. I felt sick after first mouthful. It was the wagyu pasta. My dad persevered so as not to upset me but couldn't eat it all and left a lot. The meal my son had and mother in law was tasteless and the meatballs too spicy for them to eat. The foccacia was dry. The only nice thing was the fries.
