    We had a wonderful evening. As always, service great and top quality steaks. The waiters are well informed and balanced with their approach. Good timing in attending to our need. Keep up the good work.

    Was excited at the number of vegan options available but sadly the food was bland and not worth the money spent.

    The service was absolutely horrific. We made a reservation for a window seating and when we got there they told us it is full by the window. No one welcomed us at the reception, when we asked for our table they took +/- 8min to find the reservation and no one made an effort to help us. The booking confirmation said that we have a window seating and the waiter says we must sit by the bar and wait for table to open. We saw an open table and she said she first have to look if the table is open, further +/- 8 min later she says it is open. She wipes the table, TOTALLY against her will and you can see that she DOESN’T want to be there or work. This isn’t the first experience where the service was totally shocking. We did not dine there and we left. The waiters need to treat the guest like guest and not act like they are superior to the guests.

    We often dine at Balducci’s, it’s a firm favorite. We knew service would be a bit slow being Valentine’s Day, but we were the third table in the restaurant and it took about 15 min for a waiter to get a drink order. We ordered the fillet steak off the set menu and it was really rare (we ordered medium and my wife likes more rare, what she got was very rare and pretty cold). She hates if I complain at the restaurant so I kept quiet and gave her mine. The portions were great, food tastes great, just slipped badly on those points. Otherwise great evening.

    Staff were charming but the service was dreadful. People who cam in after us were served well before us. Waiter claimed it was. Cause we changed tables but he watched us move! Air con is far too cold.
