My husband and I have frequented this restaurant for many years now. It holds a dear space in our heart. In every aspect it delivers oustanding service; the food is authentic, thoughtful and bloody delicious; the drinks menu is considered and varied; the service is always warm, genuine and unpretentious; and the atmosphere is an odd juxtaposition between a serene calmness and a busyness that keeps you stimulated and inspired. They are consistent. And you will be acquainted by the same staff, which says a lot about the culture of the restaurant. To top it off, they maintain a strong ethos towards sustainability. The moral of the story, you are doing yourself a serious injustice if you do not get your butt there. It is one for the bucket list.


Danielle and Mark.

Great food if not a little pricey. Service was great though I think the kitchen can struggle keeping up on busy nights. Everything we tried was great and well prepared. Good for a special night out.

Normally not one to leave a review.. But I have never received such bad service in my life. I turned up with 10 guests for my Birthday last Friday only to be rudely told our table wasn't ready and we had to wait on the street. When I came to ask for an update I was told I was "wasting time" by asking. The woman had the worst attitude I have ever experienced from someone in hospitality, and I was extremely embarrassed at the way she spoke to me and my guests.

After waiting 30 minutes on the street and spoken to like we were a frustration to them, we decided to leave and I had to bring my guests back home and order pizza.

If you were running late a simple call or email would have saved a lot of pain. Bloodwood you ruined my birthday with your horrible hospitality and I will never EVER be back.
