    Food was ok, service wasn’t great and the atmosphere was strange. We were the only people in the section we were sat in. Quite cut off from the rest of the diners so felt like we weren’t invited to the party. The menu wasn’t as exciting as previously and I expect better napkins in a restaurant. Doubt I’ll visit again.

    I had heard amazing things about Food for Friends and I was thankfully able to book a table on our recent visit to Brighton. The Celeriac Wellington was the top dish with so much flavour. The chips were perfectly crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. The staff were friendly too. Would highly recommend

    I had booked for my partner's birthday for 4 of us. She liked this restaurant and always hsd previously had a good experience. However, on this occasion ig fell short. It felt a little tired, worn out and the server seemd umder enthused. The menu seemd a little sparce and the food I am sorry to say fell below the standard I have previously come to expect. Not very tasty, no Gluten Free Bread was available and jist generally underwhelming. One of the dishes was comped as we had informed the server of our disappointment so this was appreciated. For me to return I will be expecting some signifficant improvements.

    Last time I ate here the food was divine, this time, not so much. My main was luke warm and the cauliflower too woody and way too much rice in the bowl. Disappointing to say the least. A veryt expensive meal, but noice to be able to stay and chat. It was desperately cold, and it seems they don't oput the heating on during the daytime. The service was great, but food disappointing...

    Delicious food, many amazing choices. This was my second visit to Food for Friends, separated by many years and it was as good as I remembered it! The food was spectacular and the service was also fantastic. I would definitely go back.

    Food was delicious and we loved the creative menu. Our server was rude and unhelpful and the toilets were not very clean. The menu would also benefit from more no and low alcohol options for adults. We asked about mocktails and were given a flat out no.
