So took my wife to this place to have a night out with good food, drinks, and music. Booked a table for 6:30. The place is typical decoration, renovated early 20C warehouse. Very noisy and full of life, created by the young crowd of customers and staff. Seemed a good start. Then it went downhill.
The music was in the bar area, and so watching and listening whilst enjoying our meal was not on. The tables are high chairs, so sitting like children, not comfortably for a longer stay, but designed for quick churn, a fast turnaround. No sooner had we been sat down and given our menus when we were having pressure sales to place our orders. The staff are not properly trained in catering and waiting, and just run about trying to take orders from customers as fast as they can. I counted 4 staff tendering to our table. The selection of whiskeys was good and varied, and there were a few cocktails. The food menu was not very imaginative or creative, but quite typical of a few burgers, ribs and the like.
So we ordered our drinks a starter and main courses. Everything turned up at once, starters and main courses and drinks. All within 10 minutes of sitting down. We were and felt like we were being rushed and it was all about how many customers could be squeezed into the place as quickly as possible. It was very noticeable how many other tables churned in the short time we were there. The food when it arrived was not great. Had far better for the price elsewhere. We ordered ribs to start with and their special burgers, and salads. Most people who order salad do so to be healthy, or for something light or refreshing. This was so laced with a sort of mayonnaise it was heavy, overpowered and disgusting. There was no choice in the matter it was just ladelled on. The starter, which as mentioned came with the main course was very overpowering and needed something with it to cleanse the pallet. The burger meat was about average, the bun slimy and dull and very glutinous. And one small portion of fries between us, no choice of chips note, oh and to add to the ghastly salad a coleslaw to add more mayonaise.
The staff constantly kept trying to take our plates and glasses. I had a glass of whiskey and they tried to take it before I had started it, only my speed saved the drink. My wife had finished a mouthful of food and I was still eating when a member of staff tried to take the plates. that happened twice
We were disappointed and left in less than an hour from arrival having not seen any music, feeling bloated with indigestion from having been rushed and sick from all the muck on the food hiding the true quality or lack of. Not a place I would recommend if going for a meal. May be Ok for those that do not eat out very often who don't know any better, but certainly not for foodies or the deserning or music lovers.
