“Gorgeous Food”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

Four of us visited on a Saturday night in July. It was a warm summer evening and the restaurant doesn't have aircon but it was a lovely comfortable atmosphere. We booked for 7 o'clock and we're seated and served promptly. This is a lovely restaurant with some 'quirky' staff that all add to the experience !. Had fresh bread and butter on the table - simple but lovely. Started with home made garlic bread, the best anywhere, very rich. Then had chicken and mushroom in a moray sauce topped with cheese. Followed by steak with a Gorgonzola sauce. You can't get steaks any better than here, done to perfection by Jean Claude. All four of us had steaks, all very happy with our meals.
Only disappointment of the evening was a large party of about 20 came in at eight o'clock and completely occupied the two waiting staff's time. They never have enough staff waiting to cope with a full restaurant. Two ladies can't cope with serving 50 people.
This meant we didn't get desert or coffee a slight let down to the evening. Our meals were excellent, bottle of house red was only £10 and very good quality.
Overall a lovely restaurant, excellent steak's, great value for money, slightly disorganised waiting staff.

“A place to avoid”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

My wife had been here and raved about it, so we took a couple of friends as a birthday treat. Initial interrogation as to whether we'd booked was not promising, but it got worse. Service was slow, haphazard and downriight surly. The food was average, my steak was excellent quality (thanks to the butcher)but poorly cooked, and vegetables were indifferent to say the least. We had house red wine which was thin, possibly watered. The older waitress was scruffy and belligerent, particularly after more than 31/2 hours when we had the bill as I declined to pay the service charge. Her response was " I assume you're leaving a tip instead" Sadly this was not the case. I've read the other review for july, I think they were at an adjoining table. Shan't be going back under any circumstances.

“Wont Go Again”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Visited as a birthday treat, we eat out a lot and wanted something different. Service is very slow the older woman is miserable and we got told off by her for ringing the poundshop tacky ring for sex bell. Why put bells on the table if you don't want people to use them?

The young waitress was very sweet and generally cared about her job.
Starters were great 3 of us had garlic bread 1 had french onion soup. The steaks were ordered 3 medium and 1 medium rare 1 was overcooked compared to the rest and quite dry. The cherry cheesecake was awful.
The restaurant was very hot and no air con

Will not return as we can get same quality food at a lower price elsewhere with better service

“Excellent”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Have been visiting Le Steak Parisien for the last twenty years. I have eaten steak in countries all over the world and the Sirloin steak at LSP equals anything I have had anywhere. It is certainly better than anything I've had anywhere in Europe - including some well known restaurants in London and Paris. The Coquille St. Jacques has always been to die for. I have to say though, I still miss the atmosphere and cosy nature of the original restaurant premises.

“Great Night”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

Food and service were outstanding despite a large rowdy group in the restaurant, the staff worked very hard. A couple of the steaks were slightly under cooked but this was dealt with swiftly and no problem. Great value meal given the high quality.

Will be going again.
