Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had a fantastic evening at Bistro Live for the 00’s night! It was great value for money - a 3 course meal with entertainment for £17 a head (drinks not included). The staff were very friendly and explained very clearly how the service worked....We were impressed that we didn’t need to pre-order our meal choices and that our food and drinks were served quickly and all at the same time. The food was delicious (especially the free nachos that were bought to the table on arrival). We had lots of fun taking part in the music quiz before dancing the rest of the night away on the tables. It was a brilliant way to celebrate my friend’s birthday - a fab night thoroughly enjoyed by all!More

Absolutely amazing night out with a mixed group of friends aged 21-55. Amazing value for money, 3 course meal exceeded expectations and the live band played dance floor fillers. Will definitely book again

What an absolutely brilliant night. Myself and 9 friends attended an evening at Nottingham's Bistro Live. From the warm reception to the last ones standing we enjoyed every minute. The staff were so welcoming, made it clear how the service worked and were so quick...to serve us and were hilariously attentive and made our night. Honestly, we couldn't have asked for more. From the organised drinks to the beautiful meals, the fantastic quiz to the brilliant Dj. We had a great night AND all under one roof. No need to go anywhere else, from 7pm til 1am we had a wonderful night and all of us felt the same. We not only would recommend but we're also planning on when to return. I have not mentioned cost, because we won a competition and would glady pay full price to return as it is still a bargain for such a great night.More
