    Good food and excellent service. First visit and would go back. Varied menu with good options. We ordered just after they took and order from a table of nine but the food arrived within a reasonable time. Good atmosphere as well

    Excellent as always. One of my favourite places to eat. The pork belly starter and oriental beef is my go to. I always have these and decide on the day which will be as a main course, which the restaurant is kind enough to do 🤪

    We were greeted and seated straight away. They wished me a happy birthday and were quick with service of drinks and food - all was delicious! We then went to the Eden room after dinner for some private drinks. All in all a lovely night for my birthday.

    Ate here Saturday with family and my daughters friend after a nice meal we got the bill left the money in the leather wallet with a substantial tip , to then be chased down the stairs and have 2 male members of staff knocking my car window accusing us of leaving without paying , maybe in future they check the table first instead of jumping to conclusions and Judging people , it was an embarrassing experience for my children and my daughters friend to witness will never return and certainly won’t recommend this place

    Starter was over cooked with gone off lettuce leaves. Mains ‘steak and pork loin’ was tasteless and green veg was raw. Dessert okay. We were asked if everything was okay and we said‘not really’ the waiter said nothing collected the plates and never came back. The table was by the main door that was constantly being opened by the staff to take food up stairs which left our table in a constantly cold environment. Not good……..We used to enjoy LaLuna as they used to have quality food and staff…..it’s gone down hill and they need to up their game

    Attended for lunch menu. Very very slow service. Just one waitress working on her own for the whole restaurant. She was run off her feet and the sweat was dripping from her. We Felt really sorry for her. She was lovely and doing her best but she needed help (100% a management fault here!). Clearly doesn’t look like the management look after their staff! Food was nice when it finally arrived but not as nice as I remember a few years ago. We won’t be rushing back!

    Lovely food as usual, reasonable prices and despite being extremely busy the service was fast and effective. It is not a place for a quiet meal on a weekend evening, there's loud music, cocktails and tapas served upstairs but in the week quieter

    La Luna is my favourite restaurant to eat at as they will never disappoint. The food always tastes amazing and is presented beautifully. The service is always speedy and they always seem to have enough time and patience for everyone. The waitresses cannot do enough for you. The cleanest and modernest restaurant and I would recommend to anyone.

    Found the waitress that served us lovely, however the ‘manager’ I think it was, (blonde lady) was extremely rude and not welcoming at all. Expected more from this place as it is highly recommended, love the restaurant itself but a shame that this lady set an awful atmosphere as soon as we arrived because it was as though she did not care about customers and just wanted to close the restaurant. If you’re going to work in customer service, atleast have a bit of positivity or customers will not want to return.

    I booked and specified it was for bday cocktails, they sat us directly next to the smoking areas, when one of us has seriously bad respiratory problems, we then were freezing cold, as well as one of us struggling to breathe! We asked to move seats, we were moved, however there was no social distincing whatsoever, felt very unsafe

    The only reason I haven’t given higher is that I had my ordered glass of red wine which was well under the volume mark on glass and looked an off colour. I sipped a tiny bit and it was like acid vinegar , burnt my throat . Was told it was from the keg .. clearly drag ends so this should be checked . Also I assumed I was having from bottle, staff and food lovely.

    Great set early evening menu lots of choice the roast belly pork and black pudding starter was outstanding the lamb steak was excellent perfectly cooked and the mint red wine jus was to die for. So much choice for the deserts I wanted them all we had cheesecake pavlova and bread & butter pudding all were perfect. The price is ridiculously good for 3 courses including glass of wine or a soft drink . The staff were friendly knowledgeable and very efficient hence the well deserved tip . Will definitely visit again highly recommend.

    Upon arrival our booking couldn’t be found even though I had an email confirmation of this. Food was lovely and presented beautifully. Service was very poor, upon being seated my husband and 2 friends were given drinks straight away (lager and cider) I myself order a pornstar martini and waited over 25 mins for it to be served after asking twice. Then we felt like the courses were rushed to get us out of the seats.. We ate a 3 course meal within 40 mins..

    Super slow service. Had to ask repeatedly for drinks. We were there over 3 hours and most people only had one drink and fed up of asking. Meals came at different times and we were not given the activity pack or drink that came included in the children’s meal. Food was lovely although different taste to previous visits meaning some were too spicy. If sat next to heater you either have hot then cold air blowing down your back or into your eyes if on the opposite side of the table.

    The food was lovely but portions are quite small. The staff are friendly but slow and don’t always like it when you ask for another drink when they come to check if you’re ok. I also had to wait ages before paying as they only had two people working there despite being really full.

    Everytime I go to La Luna the food is outstanding. However, the service is poor and could do with some training on simple table service Hardly no one smiles, no one checked back on our meal. I feel like basic customer service has gone out of the window.
