We had an absolute blast, even better with the rum deal as that is my husband's drink of choice. He thoroughly enjoyed his surprise birthday dinner. The entire place was amazing with the staff , the food & service. Only slight let down people who can't handle their alcohol & mess the toilets but still we had a great night. Thank you for making his night & our friends such a great experience

The pizzas are tasted. If slices instead of the whole being served, less waste, and more enjoyment, I think. The price, I am still not sure if I got it right. Rang before arrival, thought I only would pay for my child, I eat free cos of father's day. But it's charged adult + child. Confusing....

Hey Jason, many thanks for writing us feedback. We have had other people suggest by the slice as well for this promotion - good to know and something we'll think about for future. Yes the pricing structure was quite confusing and I'm sorry that it wasn't what you expected. Good to know for future as we'll look at simplifying it! Many thanks and we look forward to hosting you again

Everyone was great, except for security who refused to allow people to bring in champagne gifts (totally understandable) but then had no idea about what belonged to whom, I have now missed out on two bottles of expensive champagne that I did not know were at the door. If you are going to confiscate things you could at least label them and give them to the correct person. They were rude and unhelpful.

Restaurant Response

Hi Kelly, really sorry to hear about this experience - this isn't our usual process so we have spoken to the bouncers to make sure that any gifts confiscated are clearly labelled. I'm glad we were able to reunite you with your presents in the end though! Many thanks for the feedback and hope to see you back again soon.

I hired the velvet room for my 30th birthday on the weekend and it was such an awesome night! Theresa made everything so easy and the staff were so friendly and accommodating (Caoimhe - the bar tender, sorry think that was how her name was spelt was lovely) I had so many people tell me how nice the food was and how they would hire this venue in future. Thanks again for a wicked 30th (one I wish I had more memory of =P)
