Went here recently with a group of friends and wasn't overwhelmed by any stretch of the imagination. Service was acceptable with a heavy upselling emphasis and the food was perfectly acceptable. Biggest issue I have is effectively spending £50 on two small tapas size "mains"...and leave feeling hungry.More

Delightful and knowledgeable service. Exciting cooking with prime seasonal ingredients. Interesting wine list with a decent choice by the glass and at the reasonable end of the list.

Had an amazing time at this establishment. Food was ridiculously good. Aoife was my waitress and was super kind, sweet and personable. Will definitely be back to try again.

I had the best experience ever! I went in for lunch on a Saturday and it was perfect from start to finish. The food was like heaven and the staff were the friendliest people!! Aoife was my waitress and was super kind and the most...attentive! She knew it was my bday so she made it extra special! Thank you for a wonderful experience! I cannot WAIT to be back for that menu!!!More

Lyle’s has a nice location but especially great service. The place becomes dark inside as the sun goes down and you can barely see what you are eating. Small detail but it adds to a few reasons that make this a 4 star rather than...5 star spot. When you have a Michelin star, you need to have something to hang your hat on. Yet, while all the food is very good, nothing is “memorable.” There is no “warhorse” so to speak. It needs a star, and then the great quality of all the rest will fall on place. As said, great service, low bill and a nice location round out a pleasant evening - if not a truly memorable one. Good place.More

Booked for lunch and was very exited to go. The menu looked clean, inspiring, and fresh. Was walking past, trying to find the restaurant, when I saw a member of staff remove the signs from the window (she looked less than happy). A few moments...later my phone went with a member of staff apologising that our lunch reservation was cancelled due to members of the kitchen staff being pinged to isolate. One can't be angry under these circumstances. I had intended to ask the gentleman whether he could recommend somewhere else, presuming that the chance of Michelin dining had gone. Instead, before I could ask, he said he had secured a reservation for us at another one star restaurant very near and would we like it. We accepted and had a fab meal (I won't say where here!) If they are this passionate about their customer service then this is clearly a superb restaurant. One feels for all those in the hospitality industry at current and this was a real example of superb service. I look forward to coming and eating with you in the future.More

We came here to celebrate a combination of things- our engagement, a birthday, finishing exams! The food was incredible, and our waiters made us feel so comfortable. We loved hearing all about the food and the wine, and especially loved how much they clearly love...what they do . The lovely sommelier generously topped up our wine making sure we we were never short of a drop, and we finally rolled ourselves home after a top date night.More
