Great food, the signature steak is amazing!! Well worth a visit. Only negative is the trail of people passing by you going in and out of the cocktail bar. Surely this would be better on the ground floor?

Yes there is seating downstairs but I am not aware if there are toilets on the ground floor as the one I went to was upstairs. But it is worth asking them as they may have alternative arrangements for customers who need this.
