a group of us from the office went to Belgo for lunch on Friday - only one in the group had been before. a couple of us came a few minutes behind the rest of the group that had already been seated - the hostess would let us join our party, we had to wait to be escorted to the table and in the meantime seated 3 other tables, this was not a good start...
we finally get to the table to discover a very expensive menu, we knew it was going to be a bit more for lunch than our usual choices but were expecting something similar to Vintage. It was definitely more expensive than Vintage and much less value.
Our server was slow and full of attitude, it took about 10-15 minutes for our drinks to arrive then we waited another 15 minutes before he took our order. The food took ages to arrive, it was after 1pm before we finally ate. the food was alright, but nothing to really write home about, especially for the money.
i don't think any of us will be in a rush to go back.
