I was extremely impressed from start to finish with the food served, the venue and the service. My whole party enjoyed and will definitely be bringing friends and family for further visits. We were a large party and all food came at the same time

The food was amazing. Especially the rhubarb bread pudding and cardoman ice cream. Service was outstanding. I have been several times and love the experience every time and recommend to friends all the time.

Presentation of lamb starter lacked style. Jerusalem artichokes were under-cooked - they should not be crunchy. Otherwise we all enjoyed our food and felt that the combination of flavours were well balanced and the dishes generally nicely presented.

Very enjoyable evening, food and service excellent - parties dietary requirements away from set menu catered for vegetarian and gluten free without any fuss. The performance given by vocalist Holly Marks added ambience whilst not being intrusive of conversation. All agreed a fabulous night and will return for future events.

The service and food here is superb. My partner said to me that it's the best meal that we have ever had together and I have to agree. We visited the Gherkin in London a couple of weeks ago and the food there was nowhere near as good as The Classroom. I loved the view across Cardiff from the top floor of the building and it's great to see the kitchen staff behind the glass from the restaurant. The waiting staff really do make for a really special dining experience, making sure that the wine is poured and the dishes are served properly with a napkin over the hand of the server. The meat is cooked to perfection and the presentation of each dish is perfect. We had the rabbit and lamb (gorgeous) for our starters and pan seared chicken and cod for the mains. The deserts were amazing: Welsh cheese and blood orange with ice cream. The wine list is carefully chosen from multiple countries and a range of prices for different pockets. Will definitely return and thank you for a wonderful evening.

The service was a major let down, it felt as if we were forcing the lady to be there to serve us against her will. That attitude spread through the whole restaurant.

As a family we all said it was the best meal we had in a long time. Only criticism was the music volume was so loud at points we couldn't hear eachother. The food however was fantastic.
