We have been trying to go to Northbank for some time so were excited to be there on a hot Saturday evening. We arrived for an early dinner and had a seat on the terrace. There were no other guests at the time of our arrival. The terrace would have been delightful had someone bothered to sweep up the cigarette ends and general crud. It was more like sitting in a scruffy pub than a top end restaurant. Our food: two starters OK the third, a souffle, was tasteless and like rubber.
Mains were the real horror show. The skate wing butter sauce was burnt nearly black. when this was pointed out the staff brought a plate to the table removed the fish and gave the dish back to the diner. The chicken in the pie looked suspiciously like another animal. It was inedible. when this was mentioned the plate was just removed. no comment or apology even though we asked for the chief to be alerted. Both dishes appeared on the bill and only one was removed when we complained further.
The staff were nice but not really trained and didn't know what to do. They kept saying they would bring the manager who never made it to our table.
We won't be hurrying back.
