Loud house/trance music at lunch time. Food mediocre. Smell from smoking outside coming down through window from pavement.
This was a special evening and it was excellent. Lovely food, nice service and good atmosphere. We will come again
Food was lovely, service very good and quality for the price
We loved it here - everything about it from he location to the decor to the gorgeous food!
Absolutely fantastic!!! Food was gorgeous but the service was even better!! Yan the waiter was fabulous, lovely man, couldn't do enough for us! Thankyou so much to Yan and the others for a great birthday meal and night. Xxxxxx defo be back, can't recommend enough.
Delicious food and friendly staff, highly recommended
Restaurant empty and lacking conviviality.
Great Sunday Lunch, couldn’t fault the service either.
Had the offer, Sunday lunch for 2 with a bottle of wine for £30. Excellent value .
Was our second time there, & will be returning .
Thank you for your lovely review. Hope to welcome you back soon.
Food amazing, had BOGOF main meal, really good value. Fabulous cocktails
We used to eat in Velvet 2 to 3 times a month but when it became Macro Pierre White, we stopped going in as the food was terrible and over priced. It is great to see it is back how it used to be . We will be eating there again. The service was great (friendly and attentive) and the food was nice albeit the new menu is not as good as the old Velvet Restaurant menu (bring back the pizzas!). Great wine selection. Looking forward to seeing you get your mojo back.
Thank you for your lovely review. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Outstanding food, amazing atmosphere nice and quiet. Lovely informative staff team. Offering recommendations for drinks and food. Definitely will be going again. Well done Velvet x
Thank you for your lovely review. Hope to welcome you back soon.
Mood was quiet but that was great as I hate eating in a noisy venue. Staff very helpful and food great ,> Huge portions and good value. Would recommend
It looked very nice and vibey but sadly lacking in atmosphere. Pretty decor and one server very friendly but other one a bit brash and rushed. Food was ok but nothing special.
We came to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The service was impeccable from the very second we walked in. The restaurant was beautiful and the tables laid out perfectly. The food was outstanding, delicious and perfectly portioned. It was excellent value for money £40 for 3 courses and a bottle of wine for 2. I would highly recommend this as somewhere to eat, especially for a special occasion. The staff were really attentive and we had an amazing time
Lovely service, relaxed atmosphere, great tasting food. Enjoyed a Saturday evening meal with 4 friends and would definitely go back.
Great venue and great food!! Would visit again without doubt!!
Went there for my graduation party, the staff were really friendly, the food was a little late but it was amazing, the owner of the place gave us free drinks. I will defo go back.
After I made my booking, I received an email telling me that my booking had been cancelled by the restaurant with no explanation as to why. I rebooked with Richmond tea rooms instead, and will not book online with your restaurant again.
Table not ready upon arrival, had to push tables together. No crackers on table. Not aware of desert choices even though we’d pre booked. Audacity to add service charge on.
Great food and excellent value for money
Lovely restaurant, good value, well cooked food, service from all the staff was excellent.
This was a great find. Food reasonable and my brother in law said the scallops were the best he ever tasted !
The maitre d and waiter were both friendly and attentive and our food was excellent. Back to your best velvet! Well done. Lovely to get a card with a complimentary starter on our next visit too and what gorgeous food. Well worth it, thanks! We'll be back.
Hi MarkN Thank you for the review and for taking the time to feedback. We look forward to welcoming you again soon
We chose Velvet for a small reunion as we had been students together 50 years ago. We travelled in from all corners of the country. The food was great and the noise level was perfect as we really wanted to talk and catch up. The table was the perfect size for conversation too. Thank you- it was a memorable day.
Hi Jude Wow, what a great reason to be meeting up and thank you for choosing our venue to do it. We were thrilled to read that it was perfect for your occasion and we wish you all the best.
The waiter was a joy,funny but professional. The food was very good. the steaks cooked to perfection.
Hi ChristineL Thank you for the feedback and glowing review. I will pass the comments on to the team who will be thrilled. Thanks Again
Food was excellent, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend.
Hi Skelly Thank you for taking the time to review, we were thrilled to read your feedback and 5 stars. We hope to see you back again soon
Pre theatre menu and pinot noir, exceptional value and choice and food and wine was actually excellent, no negatives. Very quiet place, dont understand why, possibly because at the very end of canal street, definitely a hidden gem and its our go to place now before the palace theatre
The food and cocktails were all delicious, very friendly attentive staff. Nice relaxed atmosphere but still feels like a special treat
Great service, great food !!!
Staff were brilliant very attentive and polite..
Food was out of this world
We was looking forward to coming for a meal here, sadly it left very much to be desired. the service was good although the restaurant was not greatly busy.
looking at the menu it looked great, it reality this wasn't the case.
I ordered Belly pork to start well it was the 3 smallest squares with the chilli jam they did taste good but was more fat than meat and certainly not worth the money.
Main was fillet steak after trying to order the ribeye as medium rare but more rare to be told that it would be too chewy so swapping to fillet.
The meals came out and to say shocked was not the case i serve better at home it was the smallest piece of steak (unfortunately with gristle in it) with a plateful of all i can say is frozen fries and nothing else looking like it had just been thrown on a plate and at £26.95 is just way too much.... Sadly i feel like they are just using there location to charge extortinate prices that higher quality restaurants charge (for much better meals) thankfully we had the 50% off food but even with that it was hugely over priced Sadly left very disappointed and will not return.
Hi Scott, I was very disappointed to read your comments and wanted to follow this up. I am aware that the restaurant manager on the day, dealt with the situation and came to a resolution before you left. It is however not our norm as was explained and i thank you for your feedback received on the day Thanks again and we do hope to be able to welcome you back
Unfortunately the food was terrible, incredibly over seasoned soup, so much white pepper that you couldn't taste anything else. The steak was one of the worst we had ever had, fatty, gritty and burnt on the outside.
The staff were the best bit, very helpful, courteous and polite even though we didn't enjoy the food. I'd recommend for a drink but wouldn't eat there again.
Dear KatyH, Apologies, that a great shame that you did not enjoy your meal - As readers can see from the previous reviews this is not the normal. We ask diners that do not enjoy the food to raise it at the time, as the staff as you commentated on would of been happy to ensure a replacement dish is provided We would love to hear further feedback and have a chance to put this right, please contact the venue directly and advise your review comments Kind Regards. VBBV Team
What a great meal we had. Lovely staff and nice friendly atmosphere. The steak was gorgeous. We will definitely be back.
Dear CarolineQ, Thank you for your lovely review of Velvet Restaurant we're so pleased that you enjoyed your visit and look forward to welcoming you back again soon! Best Wishes, Velvet Team!
Food was very good standard and taste. Only minor exception was brown bread, which was not the freshest. Drinks were good quality. Service by Keely was excellent. She was a good server and a lovely person.
Not been for a long time, was nice enough however I think we were the last in so felt rushed to leave despite having made a booking. Staff were lovely, burger was supposed to have blue cheese on but I think they’d forgotten to put this on. Would go again but used to be fantastic!
Dear Taylor, Thank you for taking the time to review Velvet, we're so pleased that you enjoyed your visit but felt rushed to leave, thats never our intention. We do look forward to seeing you again soon! Best Wishes, Velvet Team :-)
Lovely evening meal at Velvet. Good choice of starters and the Scotch egg was delicious
Hi Tricshine, Thank you for your lovley review, we're so pleased you ejoyed your visit and look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Velvet Team!
Really nice setting, attentive and friendly staff and lovely food (it does not get an "amazing" because the aubergine was a little undercooked). I would definitely recommend and go back.
Dear Patricia, Thank you for your lovley review, we're dissapointed not to have 5* this time but look forward to welcoming you back again soon; we highly recommend the gnocchi on your next visit! Best Wishes Velvet Team!
Absolutely gorgeous food and the lunch offer is a real bargain at £10. It’s a beautiful setting too. Highly recommended
