    Despite having a table booked we still had to wait for a table to become free. Waited about 20 minutes for a glass of wine to be served and when the food arrived at the table we weren’t provided cutlery and had to go looking for staff to provide some. Then we realised we hadn’t been provided with any condiments etc and had to go looking for staff again to get some salt. The food tasted okay but portions were quite small. The process of ordering through an app from your table meant there was no staff on hand to get any proper service

    It’s a lovely venue, nice enough vibe, service is pretty good, although I was a bit surprised that our Thai food came within 5-10 minutes of ordering and was cold. Normal service would be drink first, then food, but it literally all came at once, it’s not a complaint just something to bare in mind. The Chicken Green Curry was lovely but the Beef in the Massaman was a little pale and dubious looking, a little chewy too. We would definitely go again and try something different lots to choose from.

    Hi there, Thank you for leaving a review, we really appreciate you taking the time. I am very sorry you had issues with your meal, this isn't the standard we strive for at all. Regarding timings, if the order is placed with drinks and food it really depends on how busy each department is and how quickly those come out. I would advise popping your drinks order on first to ensure they come before the meal and enjoying those whilst browsing the food items. Hope to see you soon! Thanks, Cranside

    Ordered from Italian menu. Pasta arrabiata and a garlic bread pizza. Pasta was very bland and not very good and was not as hot as I would have liked, Garlic bread was overcooked and not enough garlic butter on it, and was dry. Drinks menu was quite limited. Heater above us did not work and it was windy. Some other diners got up and closed the shutters themselves, as the staff didn't seem to think of doing this. Disappointed, as thought it looked like a nice popular restaurant. If I returned, then wouldn't order from that menu again, but would perhaps try one of the others.

    Table was right beside open fire/grill & ash was blown in our hair, ended up smelling like we had been to a bonfire. Even although there were empty tables in sun we were told we couldn’t get moved to one.

    Brilliant setup and good vibe. Food was slow (about 40mins for 2 chicken gyros). I’m pregnant and unfortunately there was only one mocktail available. The staff said they were unable to make any of the cocktails listed without alcohol. Still a 2 hour time limit on tables

    We waited over 1 hour to get our 1st drink. We consistently watched Solero cocktails being made and sent to other tables. I mentioned the waiting time to 5 different members of staff and each time they said they would sort it and did not. I had to end up going up to the bar and complaining again and stood there until the cocktails were made. I did not receive an apology and the staff didn’t even offer to bring the drinks to my table. I had to carry each cocktail back to the table myself! Shocking service when you are paying almost £9 for a cocktail and not even an apology. Unfortunately I will not be back and would be grateful if you could pass my comments onto Cranside Kitchen. Regards Kate Frew

    Overall our visit to Cranside Gardens was good but I would say that the quality of the beef needs to be improved. It felt very fatty and disn't have much flavour. Otherwise we found service and ambience good. I do appreciate that you were extremely busy due to the Queen conceert but thought that you would have been used to busy periods due to being so close to the SECC. I would return but would probably not choose a meat dish

    Service was terrible. Waited 30 minutes for a glass of Prosecco and a pint and even then the glass of Prosecco was half full, warm and flat then waited over an hour for a bottle of champagne that was supposed to come with the chicken. Asked 4 different people and still nothing until we asked to speak to the manager. Thankfully, a man who was cleaning the tables helped us out and got us our bottle and couldn’t have been any nicer. He saved the day and is a credit to the place. As we were going to a concert we had to rush drinking it as we didn’t have a lot of time left. Food was good and came out fast. Was just a shame we couldn’t enjoy it with a drink.

    If you've not been before, this is all online ordering & payment via QR code - some items displayed on my phone and not on my husband's which I presume may be with the number of people using Cranside app. We ordered from Xi'an, cantonese and it did appear to be the longest wait for food, 50 minutes. It was really good, however, think it would be helpful to serve on dinner plates and not serve Xi'an on side plates as trying to add rice/chips to our main dishes was quite difficult & no room. No spoons at table either for scooping rice, though I'm sure if we had asked for one, it would have been provided. Tried Bao Buns for first time - steamed chicken katsu - delish! Note - if you wish starters then mains, you will need to do separate orders as all of your food comes out in one hit. we were seated under a heater, but found it a bit chilly, did ask for a blanket which are provided :-) All the staff we spoke to were very helpful, polite and courteous. Would go back now that we know what we are doing & maybe try something different.

    Loved the food and drinks and staff were mainly friendly. But we ordered all our food and all but one item came. We tried to get a waiter/waitress to ask where it was but they just kept rushing past us. Eventually 30 mins later the item came but we had finished our food. Explained situation and the guy did not care or apologise or resolve. Also we were sat at a table that didn’t have heater or cover and asked if we could move, were told all tables were booked but the whole 90 we were allowed at table we seen a few vacant tables.

    Terrible from beginning to end. Arrived for our 7pm table but none were free. Table was basically in a plant. Freezing and asked for one with a heater was told it wasn’t possible. Food came before drinks. No cutlery for 10 mins after food arrived. Chicken rubbery. Chips weren’t cooked properly — when I told the server he decided to pick a chip off of the plate and begin testing it to see if it was still raw. Bizarre customer service. Never going back.

    We were going to see Dua Lipa which was originally a present for my daughters birthday We had only been seated 35 mins with our food still on the plate when we were continually harassed to get the table cleared. Even although I had half of my undercooked pasta on the plate. We were really upset
