Flaneur Food Hall & Restaurant

I was taken to Flaneur for a working lunch yesterday. Initial impression is good - as others have said, a bustling, multi-sensory environment and some rather fabulous tall chairs. However, the service was tardy. Disinterested staff and complete lack of attention to detail e.g. between the four of us, we were given three different sizes of water glasses (which were then filled to a variety of levels from brimming to near empty!). We ordered two cods and two chicken, no starters. After 40 minutes we enquired where the food was, only to be told that "it seems longer because you didn't order starters". Enough said. When the food did arrive, it was pretty good, though my cod was not quite hot enough. Flaneur has the potential and the "space" to be really good, but the whole experience is let down by lax service and apparent "customer-itis". Quelle domage!
