For a special occasion this is a super restaurant. Live music, glittery decor, slush cocktails (the margaritas are a divine mix of tequila, lime tang and pepper). The food was epic in taste and portions. A group of 5 shared a Lobster Fest (this covers whole 1½lb lobster served with fries, house Salad & a free drink. Additionally to this we had a large Caesar salad, Lobster Bake which included half lobster, peel ‘n’ eat giant shrimp, mussels, crab claws & potatoes, and a choice of sauce. We opted for hot ‘n’ spicy. As well as this one whole Atlantic crab steamed with drawn butter. Our waiter advised us that this would not be enough for 5 people; however, having been out for lunch, we stuck to our guns and were suitably stuffed. Especially after we'd cracked every claw and pincer’d out every bit of edible shell fish.
For dessert we shared again between 5 the boozey ice cream and waffles with apple and cinnamon. These were scrummy and a great end to our monster meal.
Highlights were the candle in the pudding for Mr N's 30th Birthday treat, as well as the delicious cocktails and fab food.
A low point has to the be service. Our waiter advised us once we'd been waiting to order for 20 minutes that we only had a 2 hour slot at our table. We know this is standard in London especially at a relatively new restaurant. So we suggested our starter of calamari be served with the meal. This was unconsciously ignored. After finishing the starter we waited 25 minutes before our main arrived. By which time we had already used almost half our time allowance. This added unnecessary stress to the meal.
Additionally the waiters English seemed to be a barrier, as we requested a Caesar salad and were served a chicken Caesar salad at an additional cost of £4.00 which wasn't ordered. Equally our boozy ice cream dessert was replaced by plain ice cream pudding. Irritating when you're aware of a time pressure on the table.
Big Easy CG a great restaurant, but one tip for future bookers, make sure your order has been correctly interpreted.
