We arrived and as the waitress was taking us to our table she said "oh that was your reserved table but someone else is sitting at it, you can sit here." so the nice comfy booth we were mean to sit at was taken and we got to swing our legs at the bar table. The food was good but service was pathetic. Many times we called for some assistance with serviettes, cutlery, sauce but were ignored. 2 of our drinks came out but the other 2 that were ordered at the same time, came out well after the food and when we asked about them we were told the bar staff were busy, only to look across to the bar and see the 2 guys have a conversation with no patrons. Overall I would recommend it for the food, maybe takeaway would have been better.

Whatever they clean the tables with it extremely sticky, we thought they needed cleaning and staff did that well, however left it feeling even stickier and we could not rest on the table at all.

She was very apologetic but no offer was made for something before my meal would be ready which was another 10-15 minutes. Also lighting isn’t great to see your plate after the sun goes down

When we arrived, we were surprised to discover Helm was closed - (on a summer Friday evening?) We were able to get into their sister venue downstairs, but were disappointed in the limited food choices, burnt pizza crusts and lack of view. With so many great choices nearby, we are chalking this one up to experience - and encourage others to look elsewhere.
