Excellent service, food, drinks (inc. cocktails) and atmosphere. The staff arranged a tablecloth for our wedding breakfast table and let us store our tiered cake in their fridge. They cut the cake and packed the remaining cake into a box to take with us. They have a loyalty card scheme, so we were able to go back for a free... More

Booked this restaurants well in advance for Christmas Eve as I heard from word of mouth that this was the "best fine dining-ish" that could be find in Southampton. This was a family dinner with my parents, their first time in the UK. We selected from the normal menu and were told twice that things we selected "weren't available anymore".... More

Really excellent lunch for our Christmas party. Very good service and tasty food. Luckily I didn't have the goats cheese starter as it was absolutely tiny, so small in fact that everyone burst out laughing, thinking it was a joke. Everything else was fine, and the staff were patient with all the frivolity!

This review is based purely on the experience of our Christmas meal last night. Simon's has a bar area and a separate dining area.

Dined here with work colleagues mid week and opted for the set menu. Our food was great, very enjoyable. However, they messed up other orders on our table but they couldn't do enough to put it right, really great service. Will return.

Lovely helpful staff, great food BUT do not order the house salad @ £3.50, this salad consists of a handful of mixed salad leaves and nothing else not even a dressing. Shame as it really let the meal down and we left feeling we had been well and truly ripped off.

We went here last night for my sisters 22nd birthday. We had an absolutely amazing night, great drinks, great music. The manager Phil is brilliant, really looks after his customers. He remembered our drink order every time we went to the bar and always came over to check we were ok. Great atmosphere and great music also.
