    The restaurant was very quiet for a Friday night, but the staff were friendly and attentive. There were several main course items not available from the a la carte menu, which was disappointing for what should be a busy evening for any restaurant in the Brindleyplace area. The food we ordered was, however, well presented, nice and hot and very tasty. They had a 50% off main courses offer on which made the prices very reasonable. Overall, the visit to the restaurant was quite nice. Would I recommend it? Probably not without the 50% discount!

    The Hilton restaurant was nice and the waitress was lovely, she came out with a Happy Birthday fancy writing on a black slate board with a chocolate cake, it was a nice touch.The cakes and the Prosecco drink was nice. What the Hilton can improve on is the sandwiches, I put a request in regards to allergies. I was informed that they received my request and could not do this due to that is their menu. I'm giving it a four because of the waitress otherwise it would have been a three star. I was advised I was called, this was not the case and I did not leave a contact number.Hilton is a big reputable company and I would expect the Hilton to accommodate to the customers requirement, what if someone was Vegan, what would happen then. The sandwich choices are not good.I had afternoon tea at Marco Pierre and this was catered for. Apart from this it's a nice venue and the waitress was nice and the cakes, they just need to accommodate for the customers as this can make customers not want to come back.

    I had an afternoon tea which was vegetarian. We received egg, cheese and houmus sandwiches. 3 cakes each and scones each with a choice of refillable coffee. Food was fresh. Sandwich portions could be slighter bigger with less cake instead. Excellent service.

    We particularly enjoyed the Ploughmans sharing starter. There was a live singer in the bar area which was quite loud so we asked to be sat by the window which was fine. The restaurant wasn't particularly busy so lacked a little atmosphere.

    Lovely ambience. We ate here mid Sunday afternoon before going to a show at the NIA. Good menu choices but disappointingly there were quite a few items unavailable. Considering the restaurant was quiet food was slow to arrive. We all enjoyed what we had to eat and waiting staff were all very helpful even checking what we'd each had and dividing up the bill accordingly.
