Only thing I could complain about was that it was super hot. It was fine when we got there but it’s like they turned the air conditioning off. People were sweating like crazy! (I know it was busy and there were lots of people but still..)

My time there was excellent even though we have an inexperienced waitress at the beginning ,after they switch the staff it was great as always.
The band this time was not so good but the DG was very good.
The food was delicious!!
We ordered steak, chicken, burger and seafood linguine.
The service was fast and the new waitress was very friendly.

Service was slow. I understand you were training new servers.
But... we could see staff socializing. No problem as long as everyone has been waited on.
We came for the band, left early they were too loud, speakers above us way too loud... when band is 5ft away.
Lucky we had a booth, as your other chairs are very uncomfortable.

We are coming to Personas to enjoy Trivia. It was great to see so many people turn out as more teams make for more fun.

The food was pretty good but the chicken wings, although tasty, were a tad on the 'skinny' side. The caesar salad was very good. Our server was great and ensured that we were given the discounts (won from the previous week's Trivia) were applied properly.

We made the reservation through Open Table (naturally) and were seated in the area that we requested.

I was a bit disappointed with the table at first but we managed to talk our our eay into another , if we promised to leave by 7:30 , No problem we were finished before then.

I thought my steak was much tastier when I had been there in feb. Also veg were not hot. But all in all we had a nice dinner. Thank you.

The dancing was superb except that it was not enough space. The waiter was terrible and not attentive at all. We were a group of 10 women for a birthday and had to wait for wine and water for at least 15 min and could only hope for a refill at some point during the night, even though all our glasses were empty. The special occasion was not recognized

I brought my co-workers here for our belated Christmas Party. I go to Personsas often, so I knew what the food and atmosphere would be like. I'm happy to say that they were all very happy with the food, service and experience. Especially my boss, who paid the bill was very happy!

We had a lovely booth close to the dance floor. Dr Stangelove is one of our favourite bands! The fettucini with Prawns and scallops was delicious! I am quite particular about my martinis and Sally got it just right! She was fabulous and her attentiveness to our every need made our Christmas dinner so special and fun! Overall an excellent night out of dining and dancing!

The service was slow. We waited 1 hour for appetizers. Any drink I ordered they didn't have. And it took forever to get a drink. That was the same with dessert. When we ordered whatever they did have for dessert, it took 45 minutes to get that. While waiting for dessert, we were asked if we can share our table with another 4 people. Which was uncomfortable. We didn't even finish our meal. I've been there before many times and this was very disappointing. My friends and I will definately not go there again. It was better a couple of years ago. Ever since then its gone down hill, and I've been there 4 times since then. This was the worst.
