The menu is steak led but with twists covering every taste and requirement and more importantly its style is one of luxury coupled with affordability. Throughout the day, it’s the perfect place for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. By night it’s something far more and one that just has to be seen. In the day it’s the place to catch up and have that planned meeting with friends and business colleagues, by late afternoon the mood is changing and the lights are dimming giving you the feel that the experience is about to change a little. You are there to have a celebration and meet with friends and enjoy one another's company whilst indulging in delightful food sipping cocktails, selected wines and champagne and soaking up the music either by the DJ or the entertainment, whatever you are there for, it will be a place to be remembered.

Less than average food, for example cod with polenta comes without the polenta. Dreadful service. Banging music so you can't hear or speak. Obviously designed around the owners vision but targeting 20 year old cocktail drinkers. On the plus side, guarantee it won't be there in 12 months because those who can afford the price tag, £200 for 2, won't return a second time. And those who 'luv the vibe' won't have the money. Boom!

Dear Alane61, Thank you for leaving us a review. I am sorry you didn't feel like you could speak with us on the night, we would have explained that as the name suggests ,"Polenta Crusted Cod", the fish is crusted in polenta and it doesn't come with Polenta on the side. We have a lot of regular customers that have come back time and time again and loved the experience, I am sorry it wasn't to your liking. We do take all comments into consideration and we are thankful for your feedback.

Mealy prawns in the prawn cocktail and while the meat in the mixed grill was fine, peppercorn sauce was essentially gravy with a few peppercorns, (and portions tiny/not worth £30+). Long wait between meals (we arrived at 8:30 and didn’t receive mains until 10pm, but staff were accommodating and followed up promptly. Overall good service but let down by the underwhelming food and club ambiance.

My new favourite restaurant in Brighton. Opened just a couple of weeks ago and the food is just absolutely superb. The interior decor is fantastically balanced and comfortable. To me, it feels like the Staff go beyond the call of duty. So much care and passion for the restaurant and their customers. In fact I think I met nearly every waiter, waitress and barmen that were on service that night. Can’t wait to return.
P.S. 300g Sirloin steak is the winner.

Faultless, world class service. Wait Staff were friendly, inviting and attentive. Even made allowances for our service dog, who they made feel at home!

Food was amazing along with the cocktails which were outstanding!

Couldn't recommend this place enough!

I booked here for lunch with friends before seeing a show - however when we turned up for our booking at 3pm, we were told that the kitchen wasn’t doing food until 6pm! Had to try and find somewhere else in the end!

Fantastic service and amazing quality food. Even the DJ was so good we’re going to book for my wife’s 50th!
