I have now been here 6 times and every time I have had an issue eg undercooked fish 3 times. I keep returning as I have had excellent experiences in other Jamie Italian restautants eg Westfield and Oxford. I will not be returning to the MK outlet

Cheap ingredients, overpriced food. Jamie is clearly trading on his name, the quality of food was terrible. The wild mushroom risotto was very disappointing with button mushrooms, not very "wild".

Being a vegetarian, there was poor selection. The menu did not clearly mark anything as being vegetarian or vegan, so I asked the waiter and in response he pointed out about two dishes and said a few can be made without the cheese. And that a salad could be made as a main. I was not impressed. The food that... More

I like the philosophy behind Jamie Oliver's restaurants and the food was excellent. However, I found it expensive and very noisy. It's not the place to go for a quiet cosy meal. I can't say I liked the 'industrial' interior design. The staff were friendly but the service was not very speedy. I went with my wife and grandson for... More

I am not really sure what the hype is about these restaurants They are nice enough but small portions and expensive for the size that you get - maybe we just expected more The service was ok but generally could have been a little speedier Just ok I would say overall

Took the Mrs after a hard mornings shopping. It was our 1st time at a "Jamie's". The staff seemed friendly enough and the food was pleasant. And seemed to reflect the price. I didn't give you top marks because the starters arrived after the mains and my drink seemed very sweet. However the wife thought the squid was excellent. We... More

With all the hype you expect a lot from Jamies. The restaurant was dull, quiet, and no atmosphere. Food was fine, nothing special and a bit pricey. Staff were friendly enough. Wouldn't return in a hurry.
