We adore the food and service at 1 Bent St. Always delicious dishes that are different each time I've been here, which I love.

We booked the 50% special offer on the fork. The food is average but it's good value with the special offer.

Very understaffed tonight, both on the floor and in the kitchen. There was 30 mins wait between a couple of the dishes and it was difficult getting the attention of the 2-3 waitstaff in a packed restaurant. It was disappointing for our last time here before No. 1 gets a makeover.

Great service with exceptional bread

The food was good (simple but good) and the service was above, really nice people. They allowed us to try the wine before choosing our bootle. We ate the menu with the 50% discount. This was valuable thanks to the discount, however I would be disappointed if I had to paid full price. The menu doesn’t worth 110$. Nice dinner, nice atmosphere.
