We came here to celebrate our engagement. I was very pleased with the service before we arrived in terms of our our booking.
However as soon as we arrived my partner grumbled that the first thing we saw was a bar full of dirty glasses - literally no exaggeration. I tried not to let that bother me but added to the other things overall I was left wishing we had gone elsewhere.
The main problem was the service which was painfully slow. We had the 7 course tasting menu and at one point we waited 20 minutes between courses and had to actually ask for the next course. I initially felt disappointed that we didn’t have the 10 course menu but was actually glad in the end.
That said, the food was very nice but overall it wasn’t worth the extended delays - we did not leave a tip at all which I would never usually do but felt we should mark our dissatisfaction.
I have eaten at Michelin star restaurants before and had a number of tasting menu experiences so I appreciate that it is a journey and not to be rushed but there was no momentum, it was too start/stop for it to be a journey.
