We had high expectations due to the comments on Tripadvisor. Can say I was very disappointed with the meals we had. We were waiting an hour for our entrees but thought it would be worth the wait. Both my partner and I are chefs and I would be ashamed with myself if I sent those meals out. My pasta with... More

The only downside to this venue is the level of noise... More

This restaurant has very good food, friendly service, but the ambient/environment and location is a negative. Dinner at week day is an experience, is such a big restaurant that have not many patrons ... so feels a bit out of source.

I called restaurant for table availability - they were busy, but said they could accommodate 5 people. On arrival, we waited on the lounge and chose the wine. Our table was ready in 10 minutes. After sitting at the table for quite a while, the waitress finally took our drink order, then we had to ask for the menu. When... More

It was David Byrne of Talking Heads fame who wrote the song "Life in Wartime". The well known line "This ain't no party, this ain't no disco,this ain't no fooling around" came to me whilst dining at Sprout last night. We have dined their before and the food is universally good. As it was last night. One quibble, the coffees... More
