There were 5 of us in our party.
We had starters and main courses and they were all lovely.
My husband had the Sirloin Steak for his main and when I say he’s very fussy about a steak he really is but he said the steak he had from here was probably one of the best he’s ever had.
I had the Scouse which was lovely but very filling. My son and sister both had skewers. One had the Steak and one had the Chicken and they looked amazing. My dad has the Chicken Caeser Salad and also looked very nice.
We would all definitely visit here again next time we are in Liverpool.

This bar/restaurant is perfect if you are attending the cavern club. The food was amazing and delicious. The staff were very attentive and lovely. This was my first night and visit to Liverpool and Festival food & drink grill made it the perfect start to my weekend.

We actually turned up 2 hours before our booking time, but staff were fine about it and showed us to a table straight away. The food was very nice and our coktails were really nice.

The food was lovely little bit pricey.
The staff was attentive the only thing I didn’t like was when the shift manager was chastising a young member of staff behind us and we could hear every word. I mentioned this to the manager and said that next time you perhaps ought to think about taking them somewhere where the conversation couldn’t be heard by members of the public and he was very condescending with his reply to us.
The staff member was clearly very embarrassed and subdued and I mentioned that to him as well and his reply was he’s always like that…
So food wise I would recommend but behaviour of certain staff members no

Great service/staff. Portions were too big (if indeed that’s a complaint !) food was surprisingly good (I had lower expectations) and was very pleasantly surprised.

Fantastic service and food amazing quality. Right in the heart of the super popular Matthew Street which was really noisy but once inside the ambience was spot on.
Really friendly staff and great service. Fab, unique venue with great background music.

All four of us chose a different meal and were very pleased with the food. The service was excellent and the prices were very fair.

The background music was great but it didn’t intrude on our conversation. All in all, a terrific experience. We will be back!
