Nice food in a nice diner. The service was good too. Toilets are upstairs which was too difficult for my mum in law.
We all had a nice meal but when we tried to order from the Christmas menu, we were told it was pre order only. Really disappointing as this isn't stated anywhere on the website, and no one told.me when I made the booking two weeks earlier. So rather than ordering the Christmas menu, which we were all looking forward to, we ordered from the main menu. The food was nice which sort of made up for it!
Amazing service, great menu and cool vibe. Would definitely recommend!!
The service was good. The food was nice but it was served on cold plates so my food was cold very quickly. The burgers did not come with chips so it would be nice if we were asked. Or the menu made more clear. Overall it was a nice place.
3 of us sent our food back, strange textures and taste...
We went here specifically for the set Christmas menu but when we tried to order it we were told that it was for pre orders only. We ordered other stuff (£12 for a burger without any fries, bit pricey) and then when given the bill there was a flyer for the Christmas menu saying available to all without booking! Just felt like a wasted trip overall. Service average.
Great value for money! Fish tacos, burgers and sweet potatoe fries were just amazing!
Really enjoyed our meals, food was served hot and fresh and was very tasty
I really enjoyed my veggie breakfast, my partner didn’t really like his fried chicken with waffles as he thought it was a bit weird, he ate it tho! I really like this place and would recommend it, just make sensible choices and not eat chicken for breakfast!
Staff were attentive and polite. My son had chicken and I had the rib-eye. The Pinot Noir red wine was very nice. We booked very late but we had a choice of 2 tables and the ambience was good.
Great place. Great staff. Great fun and really good value
Amazing food, lovely staff, good atmosphere. Service was a bit slow due to only one waitress however it didn’t matter due to the enjoyable setting.
Brilliant bottomless brunch!
Best brunch in Bristol! The staff are super friendly and very generous with the bottomless offering, plus the food is incredible.
Great friendly and efficient staff .
Food was fantastic , lovely and hot and had great flavour .
We were looking for somewhere to eat on a Saturday brunch / lunch time and happened to walk past Quay Street Diner. Not hugely hungry just yet, we booked a table for 2 at 1.30pm.
Getting there a little early, our table was ready in the busy restaurant so we sat down and ordered our drinks. Drinks (a pint and a tea) came out pretty quickly and our food order was taken.
We then waited. And waited. For 45 minutes. My partner went up to order another a drink (as no-one came to the table) and enquire about food.
Our 2nd round of drinks came 5 minutes later and the food 5 minutes after that.
55 minutes waiting for fish tacos and a Phillycheese Steak sub which were nice but not almost an hour wait nice.
The server apologised when our 2nd round if drinks were brought over and when we went to pay they were also apologetic.
I was looking forward to ordering a dessert (which sounded amazing) but didn't want to risk another massive wait. We left fairly quickly after finishing food.
Don’t book on line as when we got there they said they were full and we shouldn’t have been able to book on line.
Service is great but the food mediocre
I booked a table too small for our party. They switched us quickly to a booth that would work on a Friday night. My fish taco was delicious and at the end of the night they called a taxi for some of us. Friendly service and the food was better than I expected!
Excellent food, generous portions ,all freshly cooked. Authentic recipes.
Fabulous food and service. Third visit to this diner and each time I’ve never been disappointed. Already planning visit number four!
Prosecco brunch bought on wowcher for 4 of us. Paid extra for a fifth. Good service. Food, great value. We ordered an orange juice to have with our Prosecco (mimosa) but was told later we could have had it made up as one anyway which would have been good knowing beforehand but not the end of the world. Well cooked food, lush chips.
Went for the bottemless prossecco brunch and it was amazing. Great food and fab service. Defo be back & will recommend. Thank you x
Delicious food, great for veggie/vegans. Great service and nice cocktailslll
Excellent food - generous portions and very well cooked and presented. Quirky range of drinks. Give it a whirl!
Good atmosphere and pleasant staff. However, drinks and food took a very long time to arrive and when it did, most of the items on the breakfasts were over-cooked / burned.
Our table was booked for 9am however the front of house staff did not appear to be really ready for the day and it took a long time to have an order taken and any drinks to appear. There also seemed to be an issue with the meat delivery not arriving which affected our order slightly (no sausages for 1 dish). The food though was the redeeming feature which was excellent and plentiful.
On the door it states the hours of opening from 8am, this either needs correcting or adhering to.
Great menu, interesting options, food was lovely, good drinks menu and great prices! Also enjoyed the decor/interior/atmosphere, however next time we would request not to be sat right next to the door!
Unfortunately even though we had booked when we turned up the diner let us know that they had no food yet and couldn’t do brunch. I was disappointed as this was for a birthday celebration and no one had contacted us in advance.
We had a lovely brunch overall, the only downside was our server who constantly looked annoyed. We wanted to have more cocktails after brunch but it was hard to get anyone’s attention so we left.
Really impressed with this place as a ex chef of 11 years the food was spot on really nice. My wife is vegetarian and she had plenty of choice and we can’t wait to come back top work guys thank you !!!
Excellent restaurant. Not a huge choice but everything prepared well. Lovely staff. Would recommend.
Lovely atmosphere, great service, food was amazing. Bottomless brunch is well worth it!
Amazing food and fast service , my 5 year old said it was her best dinner ever!! we will definitely return on our next Bristol trip .
Really enjoyed eating at this restaurant, loved the atmosphere and the food was amazing.
Average food, small portions, average customer service - it was so a birthday but no attempt to make anything special about it. Wouldn’t recommend which is a shame.
We were pretty disappointed in the food and value. A vegi burger sold on its own with no fries was very expensive. We also ordered a salad and a couple of ingredients were left out. This included avocado. When we complained we were told that the kitchen had run out of avocado. This doesn't seem like a fair reason to serve what was mainly a bowl of lettuce without any admission, explanation or apology. We were offered sweet potato fries to compensate. However, it felt as if we were being given something in the hope we wouldn't notice or complain. I'm afraid we weren't very impressed with the food or service.
A really friendly Diner, the staff were great and the brunch was delicious. We went for a Mother's Day treat and Mum's were given a free glass of prosecco which was a lovely touch.
2nd visit, shame the specials board has disappeared but great food. Reasonably simple food done really well and fresh
Booked on open table not sure what to expect, from when we arrived staff were very friendly and helpful. Good menu and tasty food would recommend for a good night out
