The Living Room - Newcastle
Very PleasantStaff very friendly and attentive. Didn't wait at all to be seated. Decent gap between courses. Prices very reasonable. Food very good.08/06/2013 00:00:00Day out late lunchExcellent service from arrival and whole menu explained to give you as much information as possible01/06/2013 00:00:00Wonderful timeWas a little concerned after seeing some recent reviews, but shouldn't have been. The service was some of the best weve come across and the new menu was great - much more variety and still some of the old faves!! The Grande desert was gorgeous as was many flavours and twists in many (we had 7!!) "sharers". So, unlike others may be doing ( it was pretty quiet for a Thursday night) go and see for yourself!!30/05/2013 00:00:00fantastic service and great foodLove the new menu and liked how the old favourites are still on there. I wanted something additional and that was happily done for me by Anthony, no problems at all. Loved the presentation of all of the food, a real talking point. Cocktails were fabulous as always too!!19/05/2013 00:00:00Amazing!!Popped in for an early bite to eat before heading to the Theatre Royal. Exceptional service, with no waiting time for any course. Choice of food is fantastic, some great items on the menu and everything is cooked to perfection. Great ambiance in the restaurant and the bar areas were certainly jumping!!! Great choice of wines and drinks. Just an amazing venue and meal.18/05/2013 00:00:00Perfect Score on all countsThis was our second visit to the Living Room in Newcastle and it didn't fail to please. The cocktails were lovely. The food came looking unusual well presented it was almost a shame to eat it, but eat it we did. The food was flawless from start to finish, I honestly don't think I've had a fillet steak as perfect as this one in my life (I tell a lie, maybe the last time we were at The Living Room - consistency bonus points). Staff were friendly and helpful and only around enough to be available but not lingering.04/05/2013 00:00:00Pre theatre and timing of bookingService was impeccable, food lovely( 6 different meals and drinks ) for our party of 8 apart from the speed of receiving the bill. Some members were a little concerned that we'd be late for the show. Having asked for the bill and telling the staff we were on our way to the theatre ( and which one ) one party member eventually left the table and found someone to work out the bill while he stood there and pay it . This is the reason the service is rated only Good.17/04/2013 00:00:00Group of 11Service and staff were excellent as was the food. However there was an issue with the ladies toilets. They were completely flooded the smell was unbearable and sinks and toilets were all blocked and one full of sick.13/04/2013 00:00:00Great NightI booked this for a nice girlie meal out to catch up with some friends, we were all impressed with the service and the amazing food. It was very good value for money and the atmosphere was really nice, with good chilled out music, especially the live music that was on and it was still not so loud that we couldnt have a good chat. Would definately go back again!06/04/2013 00:00:00Evening dinnerAbsolutely delicious meal, helpful and pleasant staff. I've been there before but was very very good. Their chips were something else!30/03/2013 00:00:00Elegant DiningI would definitely recommend the Living Room as a place to go when in Newcastle. I took my husband for lunch and he was very impressed with the quality of the food and all the friends I've taken have also enjoyed it.19/03/2013 00:00:00Lovely atmosphere and friendly stafHad a lovely meal int he Newcastle restaurant on a Saturday night in March - cocktails were great and staff very attentive and friendly. Would certainly recommend and will visit again. The live music was a treat and gave a great atmosphere16/03/2013 00:00:00food ,service really goodfood ,service really good only one small fault tables were heavily scratched but will not deter us from returning.10/03/2013 00:00:00Night out with friendsThe Living Room is a fantastic restaurant - amazing food, atmosphere and location. The only minor problem was the delay between the starters and main course arriving however the waitress proactively addressed this when she brought the bill. Would highly recommend to anyone09/03/2013 00:00:00If you've been to the LivingIf you've been to the Living Room before, you know what you're getting. We went quite early, before going to the theatre later on. Food, atmosphere, service etc was to a high standard as always. Very nice NZ sauvignon blanc.09/03/2013 00:00:00loved it!!Loved the meal and service. Been twice now and will be back03/03/2013 00:00:00Food LoversFood, drink and ambience all first class, will definitely be going back. Always recommend to family and friends. Offers that are on at the moment are unbelievable.22/02/2013 00:00:00The meal my girlfriend andThe meal my girlfriend and I had at The Living Room was just outstanding. We both had fillet steak for main course and both agreed it was the best steak we had ever had. Quality beef cooked to absolute perfection. Can't fault anything about any of our three courses, was all top top quality with great service and a nice duo singing on piano and guitar really set the mood... 10/10. The best dining experience I've had.15/02/2013 00:00:001st Time Diners.The food was very tasty, well presented, couldn't fault it so the chefs really do know their stuff. Staff were friendly. The time between courses was far too long & I would suggest more waiting staff to cover busier trading times on a weekend...even allowing for being busy I was still left with the feeling that they even took longer than I was prepared to wait & to cap it all the waitress took ages to bring the bill. The whole affair was dragged out & it was very awkward trying to find the staff to even request further drinks.
This restaurant do not have the correct ratio of waiting staff to the table area's they are looking after & this is a let down on the overall experience.15/02/2013 00:00:00Family Night OutWe have eaten in The Living Room Newcastle several times and each time we visit we always book one of our meals here. That should be recommendation enough!15/02/2013 00:00:00An excellent meal, with aAn excellent meal, with a perfect atmosphere for valentines day. The staff were friendly and attentive in particular Lydia. We hope to return soon14/02/2013 00:00:00Service excellenceVery pleasant meal with excellent service throughout. Food was very good,but a little over priced even for Valentines. Would recommend.14/02/2013 00:00:00Birthday celebrationDelicious, well-presented food; lovely ambience and excellent, attentive (but not overly so) staff - the perfect place for my birthday celebration!13/02/2013 00:00:00Enjoyable.We visited The Living Room when visiting my son and his girlfriend at uni in Newcastle. We had an early meal (5.30 pm) On a friday evening. The restaurant was quite empty when we arrived but soon filled up and the atmosphere was good. The staff were efficient and friendly. There was a good choice on the menu and the food was good quality and tasty. I would recommend The Living Room and would certainly visit again myself when I am in the area.08/02/2013 00:00:00Friday night mealMyself and my friend came to the living room Friday evening. The service was excellent as was the food. We had an offer where we spent £25 and got a free bottle of wine. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for excellent value and the food was great08/02/2013 00:00:00Sunday TreatAs soon as we entered the Living Room we felt the warm welcome of the staff and even the other people who were enjoying their cocktails. We enjoyed a drink before we went throught to to dining room. As soon as we were seated the manager Tony noticed that my husband had an injury to one of his arm and enquired if there was anything extra we would need to make are evening more comfortable. This was followed by impecable service during our meal which was superb.
I can't wait until our next visit to sample another delight off the menu.
Thank you26/01/2013 16:00:00Good food, great cocktailsWe took advantage of a half price on food offer. This was certainly good value. My duck was a little tough. Could have done with a steak knife! The main reason we go is for the cocktails however. Best margaritas in Newcastle!!19/01/2013 16:00:00Almost perfectWe were very impressed by the atmosphere. It was warm and friendly with a great buzz. The piano players were excellent and really added to the experience.
Unfortunately one of our steaks (ribeye) was not cooked as we requested. Although he manager immediately took this off the bill when we drew it to his attention. All of the starters and our other steak (fillet) were lovely18/01/2013 16:00:00reliably goodWe have eaten here almost every time we have visited Newcastle. The food is good, though our friend sent his steak back because it was cold, however it was changed without any fuss. The price and quality are good, the staff very nice and the ambience warm and lively. The bars are excellent for before and after the meal. We will come back here.18/01/2013 16:00:00Birthday CelebrationsWe took my mam & father-in law for a birthday evening meal. It's some time since we ate at The Living Room. The staff made us feel very welcome, and we enjoyed every minute.

The menu was interesting and the food was good. What made my rare night out so enjoyable and guarantees my return business was the service - the welcome was just right (not overwhelming), the sustained service throughout the meal was generous but didn't get in the way and each member of staff communicated on an 'equal footing' and the overall approach was not based on servitude, which made it refreshing -I got the impression that those working there enjoyed it rather than being resentful!
Thank you, will certainly be back with more peolpe and regularly

When I made the reservation I mentioned that it was her birthday and that if anything to help make the night a bit more special could be done then I would appreciate it. The food was great and with no bad words to say at all. We both had steak and was cook perfectly. Dessert was the fudge cake and honeycomb ice cream which was fantastic and had a candle in for Rachel. Afterwards we sat and enjoyed each others company and were not hassled at all for the bill except for when dessert was cleared we were offered coffee which we politely declined. The young gentleman named Shaun who served us was great and always happy to help. He even brought complimentary cocktails and champagne for us.16/12/2012 16:00:00ExperienceHaving been to Leeds one, I knew what to expect.
