Asked for my steak medium rare came out well done, sent it back, rest of the table had finished eating there’s waited 30 minutes for my steak to be re cooked, wasn’t much point in eating then as it was a birthday meal, spoke to the manager who said it takes 30 minutes to cook a medium rare steak as he saw the chef put the steak on the grill straight away ? In what world does a steak take that long !! He refunded my steak (of which I ate chips and mash) he then came over 15 minutes later and offered me a free desert, after this incident it seems we were then ignored as drinks were not refilled from that point, felt like we were being shunned, for my birthday meal this is not the standard I expect from TGI fridays, oh and I also saw your so called ‘kitchen manager’ wipe his face with his hands and proceed to carry on as normal, I dread to think the hygiene standards there, the manager also seemed more pre occupied with the other staff and chatting than sorting out my issues

My family and I came to celebrate my daughters 5th birthday and we were lucky enough to be served by Katie. She made our evening being really helpful and sang to our daughter and made a flower balloon to take home. Thank you Katie, you were great!

The lady who served us was very nice but apart from that, the actual service was terrible. We got there 15 minutes late which is obviously no ones fault but our own however they had already given away our table. We tried to ring but no one bothered to answer. We waited about half an hour for the first person to come and ask us if we wanted to order drinks. By this time we had already decided what drinks, what meal and what deserts we wanted... So we ordered our mains and drinks at the same time and then we waited for the food to come and the drinks didn't come until the same time as we got our food... on ordering we ordered a jug of water, we never got that jug of water after asking 3 times.... it then took ages again for someone to come over to take our plates away and ask if we wanted anything else (which we did). We ordered some more drinks and asked for the dessert menu. Again, it took so long for our drinks to come and for someone to come back to us that we actually didn't have time to order dessert if we wanted to make the last train home. So I left my birthday meal without even bring able to have dessert! I was so disappointed. The food was really nice but I will never be going there again now.

You ran out of draught beer but instead of bringing our 2 cocktails over and explaining about the beer your staff took 45 minutes to explain and that was only because we called them over. When I complained to the duty manager he was completely useless and did not want to know. All he kept saying was don't raise your voice at me. I was not raising my voice I always speak quietly so I do not know what he was on about but anything I proposed, for example 2 bottles of beer for the price of a pint he did not want to know. Your Oracle riverside restaurant is awful and I will not be going again.

We had an awful experience. Very poor service, waited a very long time for drinks, food was poor and lots of people around us also complaining. Not sure we will return as we have been put off. A shame as we aren't local and have always had a great evening when we have visited several times previously. Definitely wouldn't recommend to anyone after last nights experience!

Service was unusually poor on this occasion, they had run out of Ultimate Ribs, run out of fraught Budweiser. Had to wait nearly 25mins for first drink, not the waiters fault but bar staff were shockingly slow.

Our waiter Andreas was amazing. He was attentive, couldn't do enough for us even though he was busy. The cocktails were amazing and the food was good.

The service was excellent and the food was really good. There is something for everyone, and the waitress was really helpful when it came to ordering a vegan meal for my friend because she helped us with substitute. I definitely recommend going here, and it has a nice atmosphere because it’s slightly smaller than most restaurants.

The night I was there, they seemed to be having an absolute shocker. There were people complaining everywhere, and very stressed staff. I ordered my food, when it came it was the wrong meal so I asked for it to be changed to the meal I had ordered, the new meal arrived 25 minutes later (by which time my friend had finished) but that was also completely the wrong meal. They did take the meal and our starter off the bill but this was happening everywhere. In addition, tickets were taking a very long time. Disappointing night but felt more bad for the staff who were trying their best in a clearly very stressful situation.

Lovely birthday experience for my son. Service was a little slow when we arrived as we waited for quite some time till we were greeted. Once seated couldnt fault them though.

Our waitress was polite and patient with us. The food was good, except for the onion rings. The lady gave me another bowl and I still didn't enjoy them. There was a problem with the bill, but it got sorted out right away. The cocktails were great and so were the shots. My group of friends will be back again.
