We came late afternoon for a birthday celebration. We particularly liked the bagels and the fruit with dipping sauces . Would recommend

This first course was presented burnt and was returned. The main course of a whole lobster was so over cooked I had difficulty cutting the flesh with a knife. Although it was exchanged without arguing, by now my much anticipated experience was ruined. On the way out the manager apologised for an undercooked lobster. It would appear that even complaints are not being fed back. Would I go again? Not in a heartbeat

The restaurant used to serve high end steaks like you would find in the steakhouse restaurants in the city but sadly, no more. The prices are still high end but the steaks now average at best. Overall, it’s still one of the better restaurants in Southend but unless they up their game or lower their prices, customers expectations will never be met. The set menu offers good value but the main menu dictates a much higher spend and food not as good as you will find elsewhere. My Rib off the bone was tough to cut and even with the steak knife offered, still chewy with the smallest of pieces. My wife’s filet was tended and flavoursome but served cold whereby we had to send it back just to get it warmed up. It still came back warm rather than hot. We might give it one last chance but, then again, maybe not.

However I re visited on a midweek night recently, and I was so impressed, really enjoyed this experience, service was very good and the food was served in good time, the food is delicious. It was a lot quieter in the noise sense. Loved it and will definitely go back but only midweek

The food was excellent. Service fast and friendly. Only one thing which was very unpleasant that we was seated down next to the toilets when it was plenty other tables ,however it was said that they are booked, but it wasn't !

One glass on the table had a food stain on it .... We had the express lunch groupon deal - so they gave us a photocopied , stained piece of paper with the menu on ! Not what I would expect from a high end restaurant .. The food itself was wonderful, although we had to ask for the skinny fries that should of gone with one order ... the staff were not attentive, considering it was empty you would expect them to be more attentive ... When using the ladies toilet it was like entering the Antarctic !! It was so dark in there & the first cubicle was dirty !! Overall for a high end restaurant the food is the only thing the lives upto expectation , the experience didn’t .. I have visited quite a few times before , but Unfortunately it has really gone down hill. They really need to make some changes & fast if not a fear this will be another failed southend establishment !

We came for a joint Mother’s Day / birthday celebration and even though the restaurant was quiet service was extremely slow and had to ask three times for the children’s starters as they did not arrive with the rest of the food even though they were the simplest ones to do. The starters were however very good as usual. The mains (Sunday Roast) were ok but not of the standard you would expect of a restaurant like this with the beef extremely rubbery and tasteless. Finally given it was a birthday I would have expected them to at least acknowledge this particularly as they had asked when confirming the booking. They set expectations the year before when my wife received a free glass of prosecco and cake so made it more disappointing the server couldn’t even say happy birthday. We therefore skipped dessert and had an ice cream on the sea front instead. Overall an ok experience but would now definitely think twice about returning which is a real shame.
