    Very disappointing!! Firstly, after finishing our dinner, we were not offered any dessert. Only when my guest inquired about the dessert menu were we informed that the kitchen had closed and no desserts were available. It is customary to notify diners that the kitchen is closing and to ask if they would like to order dessert before it does. This lack of communication was disappointing and not in line with standard hospitality practices. Secondly, when we discovered the dessert issue, we were told that we could still order drinks. We placed a round of drinks, only to be informed upon their delivery that we had just 20 minutes to finish them because the restaurant was closing. This rushed us and undermined the experience of savoring our drinks and enjoying the atmosphere. Had we known about the time constraint, we would not have ordered the drinks and instead gone elsewhere to enjoy dessert and drinks at a leisurely pace. Overall, my experience at Pinchys was very disappointing considering this was for my birthday. The staff should be better trained to inform customers of kitchen and bar closing times to avoid such unpleasant situations. Additionally, your website states that the restaurant closes at 12 AM, yet we were asked to leave around 10 PM, which was another letdown.This experience has left a sour taste for both me and my guest, and we are unlikely to return. I hope you address these issues to prevent similar experiences for other patrons in the future. If you wish to contact me to discuss this further, contact me.

    The lobster in the lobster roll was definitely not fresh and quite soggy. Sadly none of the servers even asked us how the food was while eating. At the time of paying when I gave feedback, I was told by the server the lobster is imported. Which explains the soggy lobster. To add to it, it was almost inedible as the meat was too salty. This was the same for the lobster linguine. This place has definitely gone down in quality. Probably why there only was a handful of people on a Friday night. The worst lobster and lobster rolls I've had to date.

    Food, service and venue were amazing. We ordered the $80 set menu which was absolutely delicious, but not quite filling enough as we were still a bit hungry when we left.

    Food was wonderful and staff were great to start with, however once we finished our meal we waited 45 min for them to clear our table or ask us for another drink or dessert, but they never did. We eventually got up and went and paid at the entry.

    Such a shame that the tapas style menu has been replaced, we would dine here at least 2-3 times per month. We both LOVED the lobster rolls and the leek croquettes. We also loved that you could eat and order more delights as we went along. Food and service is still great but the selection and choice of servings has now been limited. We would often order 4 lobster rolls but that has been taken away from us at $40’per serving with some ‘fries & dipping sauce’ still LOVE eating here but it’s not the same as it was before the menu change and price hikes
