We booked this restaurant for a work meal out, there were 8 of us eating. The service in this restaurant is excellent, from the manager to the serving staff there is an ethos of poltie and prompt service. I booked the restaurant online and was really impressed with the speed of the response and the way they dealt with my enquiry. We met slightly early than our booked time and enjoyed some drinks in the amazing bar. The design and layout of this place is supurb and it is as nice to use for a drink or eat. Having been here before on a few occasions I knew this would be a great place to eat out in a big group. We had a great table and the service was great, we ordered a range of different food from the menu and all thoroughly enjoyed the choices we made. The recommended Lamb is out of this world! I would visit this place again and again, it is a real gem in Southampton which places great service and great food at the top of its list. Well done to James the Manager who was present throughout our visit and seemed to be working as hard as his staff in ensuring everyone was having a good time.

23 of us had afternoon tea here at the weekend. It was great - lovely setting, attentive and friendly staff, endless tea refills and so much to eat! The sandwiches, scones and cakes were all delicious, but we couldn't finish them all so they made us all goodie bags to take the rest home!

There was also 2 dairy-intolerant people in our party, and they made them a special cake stand full of dairy-free treats, which were all really tasty and well-considered - they'd really made an effort. The jelly cupcake was lovely!

My wife and I have been to this restaurant on a few occasions now and have each time enjoyed the atmosphere and food. The staff are always polite and friendly and although it's usually very busy (good sign), they can usually fit us in. The food is swiftly delivered and hot and great value for money. On Saturdays is usually a live music entertainer which helps the atmosphere. It's often frequented with hen-parties but still never loses it's classy atmosphere. There is a nightclub downstairs which is probably great if you are young enough to be into that sort of thing, but is never a distraction for quiet dining either. Highly recommended and we will continue to go here as our favourite Soton restaurant.

My wife, inlaws and I went to the Grand Cafe for afternoon tea, they had been before and as it was fathers day the next day all four of us went, we had a great afternoon, tried plenty of different teas, the cakes and sandwiches were excellent, as was the service. My wife thinks it is better than the Ritz! We will be back soon....

We had sunday lunch this week and the food was lovely but what makes it great is the staff, very friendly and attentive. The management have got it just right with their customer service, makes you feel special which a lot of other establishments could learn by.
