Irresponsible, felt completely unsafe in the outdoor seating area so much so we left after 10mins of being there. They allowed people to smoke and congregate from different households right next to our table.
So disappointed as I booked this for my birthday weeks before.
The worst restaurant experience in a long time. This was supposed to be when Esher was in tier 3. The restaurant was absolutely heaving-as was the garden. The table next to us had had least 15 people. No social distancing. We ate very poor food from a absolutely woeful menu, paid way over the odds and left. Cuvee is quickly establishing itself as a seedy drinking hole. Such a pity as it started so well. We weren’t the only table to leave and our waitress was almost in tears. Shame on you putting your staff at risk.
Great evening with great food and David the sommelier was outstanding. Very friendly and a great asset. Will be back when we are allowed to.
Cuvée saved my Christmas this year. Had a fabulous 2 course lunch for 15£.
Delicious and great service.
What a lovely restaurant!
We had a cocktail each - both excellent.
Food was delicious and they served us complimentary dessert wine with our cheese course.
It is on the expensive side but food, service and ambience all great so I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
Sorry to say, but it was a really disappointing experience.
Brilliant lunch in the garden 😀
There has been a clear shift in the dining experience at Cuvee. This is no doubt down to the appointment of a vastly accomplished and experienced head of the helm (Vincent) and the subsequent appointment of an fantastic chef. The food was truly excellent and I will be back ASAP. Thanks all Ali
I love this place and return often. I love the transformation of the outside area with the covering so you can keep so warm and cosy under the heaters and with the blankets. Great DJ, music pretty loud so conversation was difficult but it's all part of the ambience.
Polite and friendly welcome.
Temperature checked, track&trace in place. Covid compliant which made me feel safe. Staff offered a mask as I'd lost mine. Hand sanitiser as you walk in.
Amazing garden, suburb food, cocktails and service. Staff are so friendly and the atmosphere was relaxed. Reasonably priced too.
Defiantly returning customer!
Fantastic ambiance in a great setting with great service and food. Overall very classy in a warm and friendly environment. I would strongly recommend this venue as a great night out.
Great atmosphere & brilliant DJ Saturday night whilst keeping everyone safe!
Not following any of the COVID regulations. We didn’t stay, there were groups of people on the same tables, surprised it hasn’t been shut down
I keep wanting to like this place and have a good experience, but I am sadly disappointed each time!
I booked this visit as a special afternoon date with my wife after seeing that they had a new chef and menu online. We booked in the dining room to make sure we got the ala carte menu.
When they called to confirm the day before they asked if we wanted to sit at the bar, then when we arrived they tried to put us outside during freezing temperatures. We declined and they sat us inside with the lounge (pizza) menu. At this point we thought the ala carte was for dinner only, so we ordered wine and pizza. After 10 min, they came back to tell us the 'Special' wine that was on the list was not available as they could not find it. So we settled for something else. The pizza was lovely and after we ate, to our surprise, they offered us puddings from the ala carte menu! We were surprised since this is the menu we asked for for lunch! They said, next time we needed to sit in the restaurant if we wanted this - which we wanted initially! When we explained what happened, they just responded with oh, sorry. No empathy or desire to correct and make it right.
It was heavy to be the last night before lockdown and my friend asked to keep it local . I booked outdoors and at the door I stated we wanted food.
They didn’t have our seats available at 8.30pm so we had to join other people after going to some unsociallydistanced room and then after giving us Mocktails to apologise,
left us with no service even though we asked for a menu twice!
It Never came and we left at 9.20pm starved and nowhere to go as everywhere closed at 10pm
I was so shocked and embarrassed as I was the one who booked this place. Never again! Of all the places I could have booked!
Always a great experience. Amazing food and drinks, cocktails are too die for.
Excellent restaurant with great food. We had the mushroom risotto with truffles and then the filet steak for two. Wow! The risotto was SENSATIONAL - absolutely amazing flavours and perfectly prepared and presented. The filet was thinly cut and perfectly rare with probably the best triple-cooked chips I’ve ever had. Amazing wines too - the selection is truly impressive and the Chablis with the starter was fab as was the Bordeaux with the main. Service was attentive and slick - all-in-all an outstanding experience and, totally unexpectedly, they were still running the £10 per person “Eat Out To Help Out” scheme. Very nice surprise when we got the bill. Well done Cuvée! A really first-class experience. Love it!
Sunday lunch was fantastic, the food and service I could not recommend more. Will definitely be returning
Left standing outside then inside for temperature check.. not the most professional of welcomes. The restaurant space is quite small, not much atmosphere and terrible ‘elevator’ music playing throughout! Champagne was a nice touch for our anniversary and although the food was well cooked& presented, felt it was very over priced. Staff friendly and doing their best with covid regulations.. probably won’t be returning.
Fab experience. Great food, Atmosphere, Service. Cant wait to go back again!
We went for breakfast. Place was clean and well presented. Playing club music when we arrived but changed it to something more chilled for us on arrival. We were the only customers there but it took a long time to order and for the food to arrive. Food tasted nice by my friends food was a bit cold and the muffin in my eggs royale was hard and chewy - couldn’t even cut it with a steak knife which I had to ask for! We told the waitress these issues as she took our plates away. She was very polite and said she’d pass out comments on to the chef. If we hadn’t been dining on the Eat Out To Help Out deal I would have been loathe to pay the full bill. Luckily at half price it was about what I would have chosen to pay.
Delicious food. More expensive than other Sunday lunches but very good quality! Service is great too!
Stunning decor and great food, but it is not consistent in it's delivery of excellent service or quality of courses to maintain it's high calibre status. I predict that the novelty may wear off and there shall not be many return visits after a time if they don't improve on their delivery, management and training to make this a slicker operation . This establishment would probably fair far better without the Covid restrictions which takes the shine off the exceptional experience expected of such a highly proclaimed establishment. The ugly covid shielding really ruins the decor too, unfortunately.
I can see what it's trying to do, make it a very special ocassion place or for the elite of pocket, but it falls short. e.g. Reception staff were friendly but not confident enough in their directions. Waiter didn't know surrey hills wine was local, or the menu details well enough to advise! e.g. Out of stock wines and menu shortages not advised, Pasta starter was too small and partially uncooked. Truffle mash was amazing, but not warm enough. Distance between some tables was not 1m. The food was beautifully presented though.
I wont be going back till Covid restrictions are lifted as it needs to be a busy intimate place in my opinion, with exceptional service to make people feel special enough to pay the extortionate prices.
Thanks for the free cocktails though - they didn't transfer the bill from us sitting in the garden before our meal. Again lack of organisation and structure.
A long way to go to live up the the money that must have been spent on the place - it really is quite beautifully decorated.
I found the whole experience pretentious, but would love to go there for a night of cocktails at the bar when that's possible.
Food great. It was like eating in a basement night club and it smelt of stale alcohol
Staff were Friendly though
Absolutely brilliant service from the staff at Cuvee, nothing was too much for them and they helped us enjoy 😊 a fantastic evening! Food was excellent as well.
The restaurant felt extremely COVID-safe. The staff were excellent. We had cocktails which were super, all the food was wonderful.
The restaurant was busy but noise levels weren’t high.
We then asked if we should go out the front for a vape, and were asked if we would like to be shown through to the garden, we were taken through a door to the bar, which we hadn’t realised was there and was really buzzy and loud, but completely sound proofed from the restaurant! The garden was lovely, and we will definitely go back for drinks in the bar
Good value for the great quality and gorgeous decor - very smart and modern, lovely place for couples or groups
Very expensive and small portion sizes
We recently got engaged at this restaurant, and the second we walked through the door I got a helping hand by the staff especially from Agnes. The food was Devine and the drinks was always there!
We will be coming back for sure!
Excellent cocktails, tasty food and AMAZING service!
Was left at the door for ten mins as my booking wasn’t found even though I confirmed via phone night before and in a text . We were left at the table
For 5 mins before being offered a drink or menu . Then the lady couldn’t find bar booking . Food was majorly overpriced and had to keep asking for service
Me and my partner had a lovely evening the cocktails were perfect and the champagne of course was on point the staff were very friendly would definitely recommend cuvee
Beautiful outside garden area. Lovely ambience. Would definitely go again.
Nice outside courtyard area.
Food was delicious! We dined during Covid & it was a Thursday evening. Restaurant was very quiet & I guess not typical of a normal Thurs night. Service was great & we enjoyed our evening out.
Beautiful spot in the garden, great menu choice and mocktails too!
The staff were amazing and so was the food and atmosphere
What an absolute disappointment. It’s been about 6months since I’ve been to Cuvee and the pizza is the only saving grace. Great wine list, but they were out of most selections. Slow and poor service (took us almost 30min for our G&T) and never offered another. Barely anyone was there, so they weren’t busy. Food came out and was pretty basic and not great. Bill was way too much for what we had. Go for the atmosphere, maybe a drink, but don’t expect much else.
Amazing food and cocktails
I've enjoyed Cuvee for a night out, I had not had lunch here prior to this visit. We enjoyed sitting in the back garden, a great cocktail (so many choices!), attentive service and a delish meal! We will be back! Eat out to help out!
We were positively surprised by the experience. Food and ambiance was good, lively bar area.
