We wanted somewhere on a Monday night that for a good meal to celebrate a family birthday. So seven of us arrived at Protocol on a cold night and had a fantastic 3 course meal, with attentive, professional service and excellent food that everyone enjoyed. Highly recommend this place - we're lucky it's so nearby.

My husband & I went here for dinner for my birthday. It's called Protocol now! Quite busy, which made it quite noisy going in with the volume of everyone's voices. But we were seated at a table very quickly and our waitress was really, really lovely! We didn't have to wait long for our food. We had a starter and a main and the meals were generous and great quality. A bit pricey tho for what felt like a bar setting rather than a restaurant setting. Worth a visit tho!

And because we deserved a night out, we decided that eating out was ticking most boxes. June, cold, steak would be good, let's find somehere close to home and enjoy their cooking.
Haven't eaten at Elevate, and I won't now, as it's changed it's name to Protocol.That hardly matters,neither name stands out.
Easy to park, easy to walk in, easy to get a table. Fillet steak for both of us, which is unremarkable. We were both starving hungry and the choice seemed simple. Shiraz or merlot to go with, and we may have had an entree, I don't remember.
Basically, service, and wine was very nice. Our steaks were good size, and the medium rare order was well executed. However... there was no need to salt glaze the steak prior to or after frying (it seemed one or the other had occurred), and the range of sauces, jus, and an avocado mushroom parmesan concoction on top all served to confuse the pallete. Having to buy vegetable sides, we ordered brocolli and beans, but the meal came with beans anyway. Adequate, but overthought in the final analysis. We were warm and dry however, and wait staff were attentive without being intrusive. Could try again at a pinch.

Nice food and friendly staff. Dessert was a bit slow coming out but we had a nice time. Decor a bit boring and was cold sitting by windows.
