Eat 17 (Walthamstow)

Im not a fussy eater and I have never left a message on one of these sites before. My terrible dining experience at this restaurant has led me to source this restaurant online and warn other potential diners.

My partner and I ordered two main courses and waited 50 minutes. That was fine as Im happy to wait but it did become the theme of the night. My partner ordered the sausage and mash - two of the sausages were inedible. Three diners around us also complained about their food. The waiter must have been experienced in this situation as he happily accepted the negative feedback and did nothing about it on all occasions!

We were then left for a considerable period of time after our plates had been cleared to order pudding. We ordered pudding after a prolonged period of time our waitress said she would try and find out what was going on but seemed to have forgotten as she avoided our table as much as possible. We left after 45 mins and went to pay. No explanation was offered by the waiter (again lots of bland smiling) but then there was a queue of people waiting to complain.

There were three other parties surrounding our table and all three made complaints!!! This is not a coincidence. This is a shame - the menu is promising and the dcor beautiful. I hope that the owner reads this and can pick up this shambles of a restaurant. I felt really cross after this dining trauma.

Food - awful, if it arrives

Service - awful, awful, awful - with a bland smile

Value for money we were robbed.

Advice - avoid like the plague.
