Some staff excellent, but some need to be more spatially aware and look out for customer's needs or questions. Main grill plates could be better presented - a couple of plain chat potatoes and simple garnish doesn't cut it. Lamb backstrap was excellently cooked but the meat itself was old and dry - suggesting 2nd rate supply. Expected much better from a restaurant which advertises as a 'Butchers Bench'.

Good value as members of Accor Plus. Nice that my partner's birthday was acknowledged. Would have preferred lamb to have been served on plate rather than board. Meals were very nice. Service was excellent... thanks Erin.

I thought the food was excellent. So tasty and different. The restaurant itself is pretty ordinary. The waitresses were not especially helpful or experienced. I had booked a table for our dinner, but was disappointed that on arrival we were seated right at the very back of the restaurant behind a small wall which jutted out from the window. It blocked my view completely. It was also right up against the window and the draught coming through was very cold. I thought as I had made a booking, and that the restaurant was almost empty, we could have been seated elsewhere at much nicer table. Had the food not been so good, I would have been very disappointed.

Food was ok. Very expensive for what you get. If not for entertainment book, I would not have gone. It’s a pity coz the place was nice-perhaps the reason why there weren’t many customers. There is too many competition along kingsway

Hi there, we were very disappointed on Saturday night, $36 for a tiny piece of salmon & 2 tiny, boiled potatoes!! Please... that is theft! The wine list is small, and the wines that are on the list are no longer available!! The tonic water was flat. We have been to The Butcher's bench many times, but feel that the standard has been declining and this time it hit an all time low. Sadly, we will have to find a new favourite.

As always, very enjoyable. Would have liked potato mash as an option during mid-winter. Too many salad options and not enough wintry ones. Irish Cream Creme Brulee was amazing!

Our table had some non-alcohol drinkers and had to constantly get attention to ask for top up of ice and water - table service was unsatisfactory considering there were only about 9 people in the restaurant at that time.
