Extremely expensive restaurant. I expected the best of food but nowhere near. The carrot starter was a joke! The scallop was nice but too expensive. The Lamb stew tasteless. We also had some steak which was decent. The coliflower side dish far too raw. The sweets the best part of the meal. Wine sooooo expensive.

It was cold and dark at my table. Water was very pleasant, food was average and costly, wine was expensive I was expecting more taste from it. Won't be rushing back anytime soon.

Wow what a great venue. Bar and terrace good places to sit and chat before dinner. Bar staff were very attentive. There is also a good selection of craft beers, and gins.
Restaurant is very pleasant, and was very busy which is always a good sign. Service was great and menu choices were varied.
Try the halibut it was awesome, as was the mushroom ravioli.
Wine selection is also very good. I will definitely go there again.

Visited Fade Street Social for dinner on a Saturday evening in March - the bar and restaurant are very lively, busy and great for people watching. Everyone was very polite and professional. We arrived bang on 6, were shown to our table for drinks in the Cocktail Bar which was buzzing. Then to a table for two in the restaurant, both of us went for the early set menu, the Denver Roll Steak was top class, melt in your mouth.
Food and service was excellent but dont expect a quiet romantic evening - this is a full on lively and very busy restaurant and bar - funnily enough we never felt pressurized or rushed even if we did extend our time by about 15 minutes.

Have been here a few years ago for Dinner, which I enjoyed however felt was quite expensive.
The most recent visit was a disaster and so disappointing. It was a friends birthday so my partner had booked Fade street for after dinner drinks (the rooftop bar) We arrived at 10pm which was the time which we had the place booked for.Went up to the rooftop bar to be greeted by who I assume was the Manager/Supervisor for the night. To be clear- we are not hard to please. We wanted a nice drink and to have a table, thats it.
The manager insisted we were with another party, and despite us telling him numerous times that we did not know them, he kept trying to push us to sit with them at their table. We then told him once again what the table was booked under, but he would not listen and said that we must not have booked. It was only after my partner took out her confirmation email that we finally got a table.
Drinks then took 20 minutes to arrive, and we had to ask 4 times for our change back.
Stayed for one drink then hightailed it out of there!
