    Service was very poor so we were disappointed as we wanted to try out the place for a long time. We were basically ignored in comparison to the larger groups that were there. I also requested something special for my partners birthday and we saw that the other table got something for a person of their groups birthday but we didn’t get anything - clearly no communication between the booking notes and service… The ambience was very good - the DJ was fab The food was good value for money but the drinks could’ve been better.

    Staff were very accommodating and friendly and ensured we were having a good night. The 1.5hrs of prosecco went down great with everyone! DJ was fantastic and had us singing and dancing until it was time to leave! The atmosphere is amazing and everyone enjoyed themselves so definitely returning in the new year!

    Went to East 59th for the bottomless brunch but on arrival had to wait quite a while before being seated at our table - it was not overly business at the time of arrival. Then the restaurant had no champagne flutes for the fizz we ordered and were originally given huge wine glasses. As there was only approximately 25 diners in the restaurant at this time we were rather confused to why there was not enough champagne flutes?! The waitress said there had been a function the night before and they did not have enough glasses left?? Eventually we were given 3 champagne flutes and at last after being in the restaurant half an hour could start our bottomless brunch. Very dis organised restaurant and do not think I would return

    There were a couple of hen parties at the restaurant when we arrived, which were extremely loud. Although only 6.00pm in the evening, some of the diners were very drunk resulting in falls and breakages. The absence of textiles and soft furnishings meant that there was nothing to absorb the noise, which was deafening at times. The large television showing the movie 'Grease' on a loop was also very distracting. The food was generally good and reasonable value, but I am sure there must be better 'burger' restaurants in Leeds.

    A nice place. Excellent service and food. Very noisy. I was disappointed as I requested in the booking a special cocktail for my wife of 34 years. No cocktail was brought to the table or mentioned. I was a little surprised as this is a cocktail bar and it did ask if I had any requests on the booking. It was supposed to be a surprise so spoilt the evening.

    No one was at the entrance greeting clients. So we walked in & saw our guests had arrived. They had been informed that the there was no seafood, lobster or rump steak on the menu. No one bothered to approach me to apologise , my guests did not want to eat the few items which were available, so I went to the restaurant next door , booked a table & came back to collect my guests. No member of staff or management spoke to me & generally the attitude was a couldn’t care less one. This is not a cheap restaurant & if the attitude to customer service does not significantly improve, I do not expect it to stay in business.

    Great space with terrace. Hideously understaffed or deliberately slow service. Food portions are not generous, although quality is OK. Cocktails feel low on booze. The Soho Negroni was a dreg in the bottom of a glass. It’s not a particularly expensive place, but it is for what you get for the price. It feels as though everything offered has been doctored to squeeze out a maximum profit whilst providing as little as possible. Very big disappointment.

    The food and service were great, but the volume of the music was ridiculous for a restaurant. You could not enjoy a conversation or hear the waitress serving us. I do worry for the staff working in such a noisy environment. They could be difficult to hear, had difficulty hearing me.

    My friends and I visited East 59th to celebrate my birthday. We all ordered steaks to our liking however when my food was presented to me I noticed mine was cooked medium rather than rare as per my order. When I flagged it to the waitress she took it back to the kitchen but returned with the same steak minutes later saying ‘it’s just the lighting in the restaurant’ and it was definitely cooked rare. I complained again, and yet again the same steak was sent back and the chef turned up the lighting in the restaurant trying to make his point. I gave up and ate my over cooked steak and received no apology or offer of money off my bill for the inconvenience. Overall it was a very disappointing experience and we will not be returning again.

    Place was lovely. Food took a long time, then waitress forgot our starters. So we ended up not having any. Lobster was over cooked and rubbery. Steak which was meant to be medium was over cooked. They did cook some more which was very good but obviously came after the other food was finished. Waitress was very apologetic and discounted the bill but this didn’t make up for poor food at a high price. Such a shame.

    When we booked the brunch the menu on the website was advertised as a £25 bottomless brunch. On arrival we were then passed a menu where it was compulsory to order a main and a desert to then qualify for the bottomless prosecco at an extra cost of £15pp. As this was a birthday surprise for my sister it put me in an embarrassing position to start questioning why we were never informed about the change of cost/menu. Had a nice time but disappointing that we were not informed about this.

    Really enjoyed the location could have been really nice. It’s just the 2 items of the set menu wasn’t there on arrival which we were set on choosing despite it being a set menu with limited choice, I was never asked if I wanted a drink and we had to keep pestering the waiters if we wanted a drink. Probably just a busy night and would probably try again at a more off-peak time

    Travelled from hull for a night somewhere different. Short walk from the station.Really enjoyed the place, attended for the bottomless prosecco & pancakes for £30 pancake day offer. Amazing food served on a cute little board, the presecco really was unlimited and the staff kept topping you up all evening. Had a few cocktails from the menu which are INSANE spent around £100 between two. Will be coming back for the lobster!

    Third time visiting and every time the food has come before the drinks. Seem to get forgotten about and have to be asked for. Have come when busy and on a quiet afternoon so makes no difference. However set menus are really good value for money
