    We visited sparks for my husbands birthday there was 10 of us . 6.30 booking on a Saturday Food is fabulous My biggest negative is that at 8.25 my husband and was given a birthday desert and we all sung at 8.30 the rudest waiter come over and said you have to leave we have a big queue people are booked on this table at 8.30! He was so rude another table behind us was treated the and which cause quite a heated argument between the staff! Such a. Shame to end the evening like this we have had many evening in this restaurant and not had any issue.

    Staff very friendly and pay lots of attention to your table. Food came quick. Fish platter for 2: They told us they didn’t have lobsters, so brought us an alternative that was overcooked and dry. But when the food arrived, it also didn’t have come with Cornish crab, fish cake, chips or salad (unless it was meant to be the garnish). Prawns was tiny and cold. Quite a few mussels had no meat in them. Should have just asked for the menu and pointed it out, but hey ho. Didn’t want to make a scene, so just ate what we got. Strawberry cheesecake: not ‘strawberry cream cheese’, but plain cream cheese and no fresh strawberries, came drizzled with strawberry sauce you’d get from an ice cream van with sprinkles! Husband enjoyed it anyway, so we didn’t mention it. Floater coffee (£7 under their ‘alcohol coffees’): got a regular coffee with whipped cream and told that is what it was meant to be - it’s meant to be an Irish coffee with whipped cream. They fixed it when I complained. Have had much better experiences at Spark (been several times) and always left good reviews. This was one of my least enjoyable.

    We actually booked for the lunch menu special £ 11.95 after asking on the phone and after sitting down and looking at he lunh menu they promtly came and took them away and said "we are not doing that now today" This waiter was rude and we felt quite embarrassed as were taking my elderly parents out for a treat We did stay and have a meal which was quite nice but the service was not great

    Great food as always Very disappointed that we felt we were evicted from the restaurant after our two hour slot. Felt rushed was reminded we only had 20 mins left and there was no one else upstairs where we were seated the manager was sitting behind us on his laptop we actually left 20 mins early as soon as we got up the waiter was clicking his fingers saying clear the table real shame

    Amazing food from start to finish! Really friendly staff & beautiful decor. We went on a Sunday which was a lovely calm atmosphere. We have recently moved to the area, and have tried a few restaurants around Hertfordshire already and can honestly say this is the best restaurant so far! We will definitely be going back. We read that Saturdays tend to have live music so we will definitely try next time!

    The service was terrible! The waiter actually judged us quite badly for ordering a bottle of Prosecco between two people! He also then brought extra glasses to the table saying so others can have some you can’t have all that! The table next to us was rammed with teenagers who claimed all over the bench seating the whole time we were there!! The food was nice but the service and atmosphere didn’t live up to the cost if I’m honest!

    Prompt service, perhaps too prompt . Feeling that they wanted us out of there as soon as possible. Waiter kept hovering after we had finished our meal.Food fine but no better than any other Turkish restaurant.Unnecessary gimic with dry ice.
