It was our first visit. Thought we should try it. Our server was great, but the hostess was pretty abrupt bordering on rude. I’m not sure what about us seemed to turn her off but I did not feel welcome at all. Also, we were seated next to a loud birthday party with small children that was also close to the open kitchen. I did ask in my reservation for a quiet table if possible. This was the exact opposite. Not the date night I was hoping for on a Saturday night.

The food was tasty and the portions were large. I would have liked to have been asked if we wanted a half charcuterie or a full one - given the portion size and that we were also ordering main dishes. We were just given a full one. That said, the plate was good, although I would have liked to see more pickles (two small thin slices) and olives or even another type of mustard or preserve. Not a lot of accompaniment for the meat and toasts.

Overall, it was nice, but I am not sure if we will be back any time soon.

Great food, great cocktails, fun ambiance. Service was perhaps a little slow but didn’t detract from the evening. Would definitely recommend!

Had the broccoli and poke bowls for appetizers, both were very good. Had grilled cheese for main, it was good but a lot of bread.

Cocktails were good but food was subpar. Lack of flavour and creativity in the menu. We ordered mussels and they came out cold and flavorless (it was removed from the bill).

Very disappointed with Waalflower after reading the hype online. Ambiance was fine and service was good but the 3 shared plates we had were not good. We found the food very bland, notably the tartare and the meatballs, and when we requested salt and pepper to add some life to these we were told these were not available although both were eventually produced together in a small bowl. A pepper grinder would be a good investment for this establishment. Basic ingredients are fine but seasoning would go a long way to pick-up the food and make it more interesting.

Food was 4/5. Gnocchi, trout special, salad were all tasty. The beef rib was a bit on the salty side, not bad but just beyond our tastebuds.
The server we had was good. Music was a bit loud so it was difficult to speak at our table.

We were a group of 5 having lunch. We have ordered 4 different dishes. Angolotti and Gnocchi, portion size are small. Poke bowl, the greens in the bowl are not fresh, there were some brown bits / wilted greens in the bowl, portion size is small as well. Only the Taglietelle has a decent size.

Very nice place with great service. We had the chickpea fritters as it was recommended by others. They were very dry, even with the added sauce they brought us after we complained. We also had the sticky toffee pudding, also recommended. This was to die for! Best sticky toffee dessert I’ve ever had..

We had the mussels- they were kinda fishy but not horrible, tuna- really tasty and then the cod- def has to ad salt and pepper, the flavour was enhanced a little more with it. Had good flavour to start just needed a boost. Hubby had the ox’s tail pasta- need s&p as well but good!
Service was great. And ambiance was perfect for our date night with no kids!
