Bistro Live - What people say about us


"I must say how easy it was to organise"

This was the destination for our work Christmas party this year. I must say how easy it was to organise. Ronnie was always on hand to answer any of my queries and was so helpful. That made for the smooth running of the night. Whilst I unfortunately couldn't attend, my colleagues said that the food was great, service was good and even those that do not usually dance, got up on the tables to throw some shapes around! Above all our staff had a great night and I've not received one bad review of their party. Thanks Ronnie and the team for making the night such a success.

"The best night we’ve had for a while and couldn’t fault the service"

There were a lot of us on the table so I know it can be a lot to deal with, but the waiters and waitresses were amazing with both our food and drinks! Everything came out correctly and very fast! The best night we’ve had for a while and couldn’t fault the service :)

I don't really like going out in the city centre but this place was great"

Being quite local, I'm surprised I'd not been here before. I don't really like going out in the city centre but this place was great and meant we didn't need to venture out anywhere else. It had all we wanted in one place! Food was good, better than I expected to be honest. Waiting staff were quick and very friendly. Good choice of cocktails (by strength) and everyone was having a good time. No rowdiness or hassle. I'd definitely go again

"Delicious food and wide choice of tasty cocktails"

Thank you so much for an awesome night. Everyone in my group had such a good time. Delicious food and wide choice of tasty cocktails. Would recommend pre ordering the cocktails beforehand as they will be ready for you when you arrive and you also get a slight discount in doing this. Also a massive thank you to lee who sorted everything for us. Was quick to answer my many questions emailed over and was very helpful on the night... Lovely guy!!

"Once again thank you and your well trained staff from kitchen to management"

Thank you Bistro Live Nottingham. Friends and Family had a wonderful night celebrating my daughters birthday at your Venue. We were a party of all ages (Adults) and not one of us were disappointed, the food, staff, drinks, service and DJ were amazing. Such was our experience my younger daughter has chosen you for her Hen Party in March next year, even though it means coming from York and staying overnight. Once again thank you and your well trained staff from kitchen to management

"All of the staff are wonderful and service is second to none"

There were twenty of us celebrating two birthdays. The food choice was very varied and the quality excellent. All of the Staff are wonderful and service is second to none. When you want to order a drink you just wave a flag and a member of staff soon appears. The whole table was served together, no one was kept waiting. The entertainment was fun, a music quiz if you wanted to join and then a fantastic DJ, dancing on the tables is always good fun and this is the only place who allow it. We all had a great party and would recommend it to anyone of any age.

"Staff will accommodate for any needs/requirements which is great"

We absolutely love bistro live! I think we do come far too much though. It’s great to be in one place, no going from bar to another bar, especially when it's rubbish weather. The staff are all amazing! Always make us feel welcome, not stuck up & thoroughly enjoy their job. The food isn't my kind of food but its very well presented comes out nice & hot. (I prefer chips). Staff will accommodate for any needs/requirements which is great as we are an awkward bunch. Even getting me a cushion to sit on which is just great. Definitely recommend

"Amazing food and great choice!"

Loved the fact we didn’t have to queue for drinks and we could stay at the table and enjoy the evening. Amazing food and great choice! Great tunes! Loved the fact they played some tunes to go with Halloween theme but great choice of tracks too. The waiters dancing on stage was great too.

"Made us feel at heart of everything they did."

Staff were very friendly and attentive. Made us feel at heart of everything they did. Last minute alternative dietary requests weren't a problem whatsoever ever. The staff member looking after us was on his trail shift and did such an incredible job, got us all laughing! Music was fantastic too!

"The staff were all well trained and their service was impeccable"

I visited Bistro Live in August 2019 with a large group of friends as we were celebrating finishing our degree. This was my first experience in Bistro Live and I was really happy with the overall experience. The staff were all well trained and their service was impeccable. One of our party was coeliac and she was pleasantly surprised with how accommodating the staff were. The food was good and certainly great value for money. I would definitely recommend Bistro Live to anyone looking for a fantastic night out with friends/colleagues, etc

"What a great evening for my birthday!"

What a great evening for my birthday! None of us really go out these days and managed to enjoy ourselves. Food was delicious and lots of choice to cater for so many people.! Staff are so attentive making sure that our night was running smoothly! Big shout out to Andrew (on his first evening and for passing his trial shift ), Roberto and Chris and the rest of the team we all had a lovely evening. Involving lots of cake, laughs and dancing!

"I can’t recommend Bistro Live enough and we will definitely be back!"

What can I say what an amazing night we had! We were a party of 10 girls celebrating my daughters hen night and wow what a fabulous time we had! We went for the top package not the cheapest but worth every penny!!!! We had our own private waiter for the night called Max so the drinks were bought to our table within minutes of ordering them and he was such a nice guy, really up for a laugh and nothing was too much trouble for him. As part of the package we were given decorations for our table, a goody bag with games and sashes, glow bracelets etc. Nibbles on the table on arrival and a 3 course meal with a glass of Prosecco and a shot, it was excellent value for money. The meal was absolutely beautiful I could not find anything to complain about at all, it was the best meal out I’ve had in a long time. Absolutely lovely, I can’t recommend bistro live enough and we will definitely be back!

"The atmosphere is always great and the workers have remembered me, which shows how friendly they are!"

I have visited Bistro over 3/4 times for birthdays and work parties. The atmosphere is always great and the workers have remembered me, which shows how friendly they are! Always feel welcomed and the food Is amazing. Staff members always have a smile on their face and know how to dance! Definitely worth the money (bargain in my eyes)!

"Have been here more than 10 times and still one of my favourite places"

Always amazing food, service and entertainment. Have been here more than 10 times and still one of my favourite places particularly for a hen party, Christmas do or birthday. Would always recommend.

"I massively recommend this company for any group event"

I travelled from Yorkshire to attend my nieces hen party and had never heard of Bistro Live. I was initially impressed with the package I was told about and thought the price very reasonable. I thought we'd have a lovely evening with OK food. I was in for a shock as the whole evening was utterly fantastic. Service from all staff was great but a couple of the team stood out as being such brilliant hosts, Doug being one.... He was a professional party animal making us want to join in with festivities but he was continually being attentive and safety conscious too. The food was wonderful, fresh, very tasty and piping hot. A good choice of dishes on offer. I wish I lived closer as I've got a big birthday coming up next year~but maybe another branch will be open near to me by then I massively recommend this company for any group event

"They catered for vegetarian in our party and did not have to even ask who it was, that does not happen very often"

From beginning to end the staff where amazing, couldn’t fault the service, entertainment or food. Had a great night dancing on the table. Food was hot and everyone on the table got there’s at the same time. They catered for vegetarian in our party and did not have to even ask who it was, that does not happen very often. Live band did an awesome set and the DJ was brilliant at mixing it up.

"The staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful"

We were here for a hen do, and this is a great night out - the staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful, and were quickly and efficiently on top of everything, from little spills to rowdy guests. Seems like a well-oiled machine! The food was good, the music was excellent (both the DJ and the house band!) it was a really great atmosphere.

If you want a fab night out with great food and an amazing atmosphere - Bistro Live is the place to go. I can't recommend it highly enough.

"All the staff deserve medals!"

From the moment we got there for a hen do, we were welcomed with lovely smiles, I didn't see one staff that didn't have a smile on their face. All the staff were so nice and attentive but Georgia stood out the most for our group she was so helpful and friendly, anything we needed she sorted us out and she wasn't even signed to our table. The live band was really good aswell good music and interacted with all the people. Over all was a really good night and all the staff deserve medals!

"Quiz during dinner is always a laugh!"

Food is always lovely, never takes too long to come but I never notice anyway the evening just flows, quiz during dinner is always a laugh! Absolutely love the fact you can dance on the tables after dinner!!! DJ’s playlist is brilliant, there’s a bit of everything I particularly love anything from 90s to now. My friends and I are clubber cise mad and we always wind up hearing a song from class

"I even had a birthday cup cake!"

What an amazing evening. Really great staff who went out of their way to make everyone enjoy themselves. Food is out of this world - better than most small restaurants. Would highly recommend for any type of celebration or just for a great night out with family and/or friends. Thought I may be a bit out of place given my age, but most definitely not - I even had a birthday cup cake!

"Entertainment was fantastic"

Had a brilliant night celebrating a birthday party, food served hot and of good quality.
Entertainment was fantastic from the sing along at the end of the meal through to the disco and live band sets. This was our 4th visit over the past 2 years and would definitely return again.
Booking was easily completed and supported by the Management Team, well done keep up the great customer service.

"The food was extremely good and the service was spot on"

I went to Bistro live for my friend's birthday a few weeks ago. Everything was great! The nibbles and cocktails on arrival were delicious, the food (all 3 courses) were extremely good and the service was spot on. Being gluten intolerant I am always weary when I eat out but on that night everything went really well. I had to pre-book my food and when I arrived people were expected me, I had my own plate of gluten free nibbles and the rest of the food was delicious. The music was very good and the music quiz is a nice touch! I would definitely go back.

I can't thank Bistro Live Milton Keynes enough for the best hen night I could have wished for, from beginning to end. Such good value for money we had the hotel package too and everything from the food, music and overnight stay was just perfect. My whole party had never been to Bistro live and we have all said we will definitely recommend you to anyone and we will certainly come again.

Went here 17th Feb for the last event of my sisters hen do. It was amazing even with no live band on that evening. Food choice was fab and food was served hot. Staff were really helpful particularly Jake who went and got one of our guests a massive plate of chips at no extra cost and we didn't ask for them just because she hadn't eaten much of her main (fussy eater). Love this place and would definitely visit again. There was no trouble at all and everyone was there to have a great time. Thanks Bistro Live x

"Food was Lovely"

We went for our works Christmas party. It was fun, food was lovely, drinks served to your table and you can either form a tab or pay as you go, away from the rest of your table. We weren't drinking so that was great for us! Once dinner had been served they clear the tables and the dancing starts... On the tables if you like! The music is wide and varied as each table gets a request sheet so there'll definitely be something you can enjoy!
