First time dining here and I have to say it was fantastic. The staff were really helpful and friendly, the food was beautifully presented and tasted every bit as good as it looked.
I was really happy with the wine list and there was something on it to go with everyone’s tastes.
Overall it was a great experience and I wouldn’t hesitate to return or to recommend top blade to friends.

Good food at reasonable prices. Steaks were cooked to order and food arrived hot.
Not a huge choice of dessert however that wasn’t a problem for us as we prefer savoury food!!
Staff were friendly and helpful

Fabulous meal and lovely cocktails. Only problem was one of our sides didn’t come out with our meals and by time they were bringing it out we had finished out steaks. The staff were lovely and took the price of our side off the bill. Quality of the steaks was 1st class very tasty will definitely go back.

I'm on a keto diet, so it can be difficult to find good options, but the staff were really helpful with this. Steaks were done to perfection and the signature sauce was amazing! Really lovely meal.

For somewhere that specialises in steak, pretty disappointing that the chef couldn’t cook it right. Asked for medium, got it well done. Returned to kitchen & another was sent out. That came out a medium/rare. By that stage I was too hungry to send it back. Half was left on the plate. Manager came over & apologised. Supplied a complimentary drink free of charge for the inconvenience. Service was brilliant, just a shame about the steak because the rest of the food was lovely.

The food was delicious I would have preferred that it was served on a plate rather than a board . In my opinion a board is for cheese not fillet steak. Also skinny chips 🍟 please serve proper chips it’s not mc Donald’s ugh.
Overall very good and will definitely be back .

We booked in quoting 'Belfast Restaurant Week' and arrived at 18:40, (Belfast restaurant week deal was from 5pm-7pm). We were pleasantly greeted and brought to our table where we ordered a drink. We waited 25 minutes for our drinks to come, we politely told the waitress that we were ready to order (19:05). The waitress came back to our table and explained that they were unable to put our order through their till at the discounted price, I reminded the waitress that we had arrived at 18:40 and that the deal was until 19:00, the delayed time was a result of the long wait on two drinks. The waitress explained to the manager the situation and we were able to have the meal at the expected reduced price. We waited until 19:35, still no sign of any food, the waitress came to our table and told us that they didn't have any chorizo and cheddar rollitos left. We were very hungry this stage as we approached an hour long wait on NO food, so we asked could our main meal be brought ASAP. Our main meal arrived, the steak was enjoyable but the 'buttery Belfast champ' lacked flavour and overall it was a rather boring meal. We ordered dessert as we weren't full after the main. The Profiteroles were as nice as profiteroles can be... We asked for the bill and mistakes were made with this also - I had a glass of wine but was charged for a bottle? The mistake was resolved but overall it was an incredibly disappointing experience, particularly the service. There was never any sincere apology for any of the inconvenience and we weren't offered anything as a result of the starter incident, unfortunately we won't be back.

Been to Top Blade thrice and it’s been fantastic each time. Steak cooked to perfection, lovely sides and starters and great staff and atmosphere.
Keep up the good work!

The food we got was very good, I had the fillet steak and it was delicious, however we ordered starters
which never arrived, as the waitress arrived with our main courses, we pointed this out to her to which
she seemed surprised and unsure what to do. I appreciate a mistake can be made by anyone, however she didn't offer any apology for this occurrence, nor did anyone else. I would have expected the mistake
to have been reported to the manager/front of house, either this wasn't done, or, if it was, then they
didn't deem it worthy enough of an apology either as we ate our main course and left without it being
mentioned. Did I enjoy the food .. absolutely … will I go back .. highly unlikely

Absolutely delicious steak and fabulous service. Only negative point would be about the sides, notably the creamed spinach which was a little bit watery.

Sadly the steak was over cooked and not just for my order, but the three other carnivore and meat connoisseurs in my party. Restaurant wasn’t busy at all and waiting time I felt was somewhat unreasonable. Furthermore the marketing image of the the multiple ‘blade’ portions didn’t accurately reflect the reality either. Ended up going to Deanes Meatlocker next day to get a real hit of Irish beef. But all that being said the price point was ridiculously low which goes half way in explaining the portion size and overall quality. Steaks in most good restaurants are around £30...not a tenner so I’d happily pay more for a bit care and service.

Me and my boyfriend love Top Blade, with Saturday past being our 3rd time attending in a 6 month period. Our table was booked for 6 and our order was taken promptly, we didn’t even have to look at the menu because we get the same thing each time!

We watched 4 tables food arrive who sat down after us and 50 minutes after ordering I asked a server for an update on our food as we had tickets for a show starting at 7.15 close by and it was turning on 7pm!

Restaurant was relatively busy but all the other tables who sat down after were moving on to/finishing desert. One of the managers came over to tell us as my boyfriend is getting his stake well done that it would take longer to cook but I mean it would have been coal by this stage if they had it on that long! He gets the same thing each time and the lead time had never been that long before, the only plausible explanation is that our server forgot to put the order through.

Food came out at 7.05 finally.. 2 steaks and 3/4 sides we had ordered, half of my boyfriends chips had fell on to the servers tray leaving him with half the amount I had, thinking the server would have addressed the lack of chips nothing was said and the pile on her tray was ignored. I was too hungry at that point to care, thinking that was the last thing that was going to go wrong.. remembered when I was almost finished my meal the market veg still hadn’t came so just had to cancel it from the order as I was not paying £3 for veg to arrive after my meal.

They gave us to complementary drinks, a cocktail and a coke to compensate. However this really didn’t cut it as we ended up late to the show and out of pocket on a £58 meal which wasn’t up to scratch. I’m not one to complain and leave a review but I am just disappointed a restaurant we hold in such high regard and recommend to all our friends really let us down.

I understand Saturdays can be busy but we have never hard such poor service before..

Myself and my partner went on sat night the menu is small but what was on it or what we order was all cooked to perfection I would go as far to say it’s one of the nicest steaks I’ve had and the buttery mash was beautiful the only thing is the sauces could be doing with being abit bigger for the price, the cocktails were so nice actually tasted the alcohol in them. The staff were so nice and friendly and really attentive and I didn’t feel rushed to leave our table when we were finished like some other places! We will definitely be back such a good wee spot
