Dined via a voucher from [...]!!The only defence I can offer was that it was Friday night and VERY busy.Even so the food was overall very,very poor,the atmosphere(live singer?)was terrible and the whole experience a complete shambles.

Tasty fish served in puddle of broth with revolting overcooked vegetables; seafood risotto was oversized mush looking and tasting like it was made with concentrated tomato soup. Waiting staff inattentive in half empty restaurant. Very good location but deserves to be completely empty.

The food was good but my husband didn't get a complete meal, they were excellent in rectifying the matter.

A good place for a catch up but not for a special dinning experience.
Evening, nothing great about the meal

We went on a meal deal and did they know about it!!! They could not wait to feed us and get us out. The waiter chased after me for a tip - how disgusting!!! Awful.

Dined at 630 with a colleague who has just returned to work-so ideal for a catch up as the restaurant was quiet at this time. Have also dined there as a group- and the atmosphere appropriate for any occasion

Welcomed with a smile, the food was full of flavour, the the portions were generous, we went for the house red which was lovely so we ordered a second bottle. The staff were friendly and attentive, and I would definitely go back again.[...]

We booked a table for 4 @ 9pm as part of the set meal offer. Two of us arrived a couple of minutes behind the other two and when we arrived we found our friends were at the bar with their free cocktails, and the set menus. So far so good. Almost the second we got there we were ushered to the table, and immediately asked what we wanted to order in a terse and uninterested manner by our waiter. I said we needed more time and asked if we could order our remianing cocktails as we hadn't been able to do so at the bar. He came back 5 minutes later with our cocktails and immediately asked which wine we wanted to order (i hadn't even had a sip of my cocktail yet!). This set the tone for the entire evenings service, and I am dissapointed to say that it ended in me wanting to question why a service charge had been added to our bill. In short the waiters made our gropup feel unwelcome all evening, and were more busy watching two girls dancing around by the bar.

It was a friday night and the clientel was a mixture of people who just wanted to get drunk and those looking to enjoy a meal. This made the whole experience more confusing, as I wasn't sure if I was eating in a bar, or if people were trying to have a night out in a restaurant.
I must say at this point, that the food was delicious, and I feel for an accomplished chef who is not supported to the same level by the front of house staff.
I have had some amazing evenings out and meals with book a table, and in some ways I shouldn't quibble due to the price, but I really don't think that good service costs you anything, and tends to guanrantee that people will come back. I will not.
I wanted to take a friend out to celebrate her getting a new job. We had looked forward to visiting Grappolo for a couple of weeks as the pictures on the website looked lovely and reviews read had been all good. However, this was not to be. During the entire meal we had 4 different waiters. The first was abrupt and obviously just wanted to upsell the product of the day - in this case champagne. After taking our order for cocktail, starter, main and dessert (using the Bookatable Star Deal) we were then asked if we wanted bread. This turned up, with the cocktails, within a couple of minutes, swiftly followed approx 1 minute later by our starters. Why do I want a basket of bread at the same time as my bruschetta? My cocktail - sangria - tasted of cheap red wine flavour squash. Extremely bitter and not very nice, I just left it

The bruschetta was flavourless - no garlic or salt in sight. The pesto also had no flavour. My friend's calamari was rubbery and tasteless. The main course arrived almost as soon as we had finished the starter. Chicken breast wrapped in parma ham and sage served with a white wine sauce was more of an old flat piece of chicken with an overcooked piece of parma ham on top served with melted butter. No flavour again. We were starving by this point so resorted to covering the plate in lemon and salt. Dessert arrived so soon after we finished our mains that theoretically we had been served a whole meal in approx 25 minutes
The highly anticipated vanilla pannacotta with roasted peaches and amaretto was more like a coconut jelly served in chinese buffets with some tinned peaches on top. No amaretto. Upon questioning the hostess, she referred us to another waiter and then the manager who apologised and said sorry you were given the wrong dessert.
After much to'ing and fro'ing the manager came over saying they had never had any problems before, not really what we wanted to hear. By this point I was really upset as my friend had not enjoyed the meal at all, I just wanted to leave. We were eventually
