The food was utterly exceptional, atmosphere perfect. Couldn't recommend anywhere more. Felt really special and we had a great time. It is expensive compared to the rest of Bristol, but it's correctly priced for the quality.

Came for the earlybird. Staff non-attentive, seemed like low paid Wetherspoons service. Chatting and we had to ask for table water twice. Doing really high level things like taking coats (which I dont care about anyway) but not bringing drinks twice forgetting. Steak sucked aswell. Maybe you don't try hard on the earlybird, but if it was good I might come back for a bigger meal. Plus, my word of mouth will say your place stinks. Steak of the Art, Pasture are far better. And for a more low key but way better steak than you served for a lower price: The Ashville in Bedminster. The restaurant let me down as I took my girlfriend there, I felt embarrassed afterwards as it was sub par on experience, service, food. The venue was great though.

Very overpriced - average steak with expensive side dishes. Dessert was £8 and tiny - it was the size of my finger (I measured it). Wouldnt recommend, the price of the bill did not reflect the food served, it was expensive and served average at best food. There are much nicer restaurants in Bristol for the same price.

Hi, we visited you on Monday the 21st October. We booked a table for 7.30pm. This was an anniversary meal, so a very special occasion. I have to say the service was awful ! So slow.... We sat down at our table and didn’t get spoken to for 20 minutes and then we didn’t get our actual drinks for another 20 minutes. (40 mins before we received Anything at all) Our starter did not come out promptly. We both ordered the fillet steak which was lovely. We just felt very disappointed with the service. I don’t think you should be charging those prices without the service the match . We didn’t order a dessert as we were worried it might take another 40 mins . Sorry to say but even though the steak was delicious we won’t be returning or recommending any one come to the ox Jess

I don't like how a service charge is added on for two people. I also think the steak should come with trimmings rather than having to pay more. Lovely steak but very salty and very pricey.

It's so dark it's hard to read the menus and see what you're eating. More light please.

The quality of the food was very good and enjoyed all the items ordered whether starter or main. The sides are a little on the smaller side but as the steaks are on the larger side we managed with 3 sides to share between 3.. The atmosphere is very vibrant but at times can be a little too noisy so not the best restaurant to go if you want to have a decent conversation. As the restaurant is in the basement it's also very warm! The only thing that marred the experience was the service we received compared to others seem to be different - we didn't have anything explained to us by the wait staff and when we asked for sauces as they didn't ask us when ordering they looked annoyed. Also the steak knives are blunt so it was more effort to cut the steaks.

There was no signage to find the restaurant. The meat was not succulent and did not carry through flavour.

The best steak I have had. The waitress was fantastic & even allowed me to take a photo of the wine so I could enjoy it at home.

we had a sharer between two people; and the chip portion wasn’t very big, so more chips would be good! Increasing the choice of the red wine list (by the glass) would be good too.
