Stopped in for Saturday lunch and tried a selection of their offerings with a half bottle of wine. The food was very good but as others have mentioned, it would be easy to spend quite a lot of money here. Not a place I could afford to frequent on a regular basis - like Hawksworth this feels like a special ocassion restaurant.

The interior is absolutely stunning, warm and welcoming. The food divine and the service impeccable . The only negative is that the space is really loud!! The acoustics are bad and need some tweeting. Other than that I love it.

The food was great but our server would not leave us alone. He would visit every 2 minutes and ask how things are going and fill up the water if he notices we took a sip. I understand he's providing 'service' but this was to the point where we felt very uncomfortable.

Excellent food, though we were disappointed with the service. My fiancé and I are huge foodies and when we were served our dishes we never got an explanation or description of the pates.
I also found that the plates were not timed properly, they came relatively fast one after the other and we got out first dish before being served with wine.
Other than that we really enjoyed the food and hope these comments are taken as constructive feedback.

We ordered the Berkshire pork & cheddar sausage for $16 and we think it is overpriced. It is literally just a single sausage and it didn't taste like anything special. The food overall was good. The service could be better for the place and price.

The restaurant building exterior and interior were great, with the two level setup. Service was great as well. But that pork belly meat selection could really improve based on price charged: from 80/20 fat/lean ratio as observed to perhaps 60/40.

There is a fine line between when something is burnt vs something that is browned. The kitchen sent us multiple dishes that tasted and were visually burnt. The group I was with were all chefs from popular restaurants from other Cities. It was a shame, as usually this restaurant is on top of there game. While the restaurant covered the cost of one of the two dishes that were inedible, it would have been nice if they just provided us a refired dishes as opposed to comping it. No option was given. Everything else was well prepared and tasty. Service was rushed but knowledgeable.

Restaurant was moderately busy, made a reservation in advance for 6pm and although there were many available nicer tables, hostess tries to pawn us off with the worst in the house.
Made me wonder if booking on open table made us less of a priority for them?

Waitress was the worst we’ve ever had. Offered no niceties, no meal suggestions, no offer to answer any questions on the menu and hen had the audacity to suggest the wine left
In the carafe would be for her. She really should not be front of house. Other service people who came around were way more attentive and pleasant.

The food was really good, the room and value also. Would return only if service improves.

The food was served Tapas style, with an excellent and diverse menu. The server was informative and astute, gave good advice and kept track of how the meal was progressing. The seasoning was excellent, everything was tasty and interesting and there was great variety. This is a great place for friends or family or informal business, for either a quick short meal or making an evening of it.
Please note the Pizza takes a long time to come out, but is worth the wait too!
