As You Like It
Always great food and friendly prompt service.
Trendy bar & eatery. Food always hot, tasty and plentiful. Go to place where you can guarantee something on the menu that will hit the spot!
Booked for Birthday through Open Table only to get call from As You Like It day before to say they had stopped trading with Open Table last Nov and table wasnt available at that time. After lengthy phone call they managed to squeeze us in. Food was just ok but service was VERY slow!
Fabulous night out with friends ! Food was great. Service was excellent. Live band was called P45 and they were brilliant - playing 70s and 80s dance music really well including brass instruments. Great night - would heartily recommend !!
Fantastic value during Restaurant Week, good menu choices, good drinks offering, friendly service.
Always love As You Like It. Great neighbourhood gem and always good food and great service. Place is great if you have children as well as they quite often have themed events on there so if you go during the day be prepared. Great selection at the bar although the drink prices can be somewhat steep!
Really good food, reasonable prices, large portions, good service and great value!
Excellent food and excellent service. Even though we arrived after the Sunday Lunch menu had ended were happy to serve us from that menu. Food was excellent and the Yorkshires were huge.
Very happy customers
Food was ok a bit bland and not very good portion sizes for the price.
Very disappointing visit for party of 8 of us. We waited nearly 2hrs for our main course after order. When the main courses did arrive they didn't come altogether and we had to ask again to chase up the side orders with one side actually arriving when everyone had finished eating (it caused a laugh as the waiter actually put it on the corner of the table and ran away). 3 of the meals weren't cooked as required and we weren't even offered desert, think they'd given up by this stage.
To be fair the Manager did apologise and gave a reduction to our bill but we'd rather the night have gone to plan than the poor service we received.
Food was very poor service goid music good ok just fir a drink a dance and music as free entry a plus drinks really expensive
Get together with friends. This place is great if you have kids (as some of mine did). Service was really good on this occasion. Very helpful staff that were really attentive, especially with all the extra demands from the little ones. Food was fantastic. Big flavours and generous portions. Great to have this place so close to mine
Always a great experience at AYLI. I am regular customer, staff are always so pleasant and want to be an assistance.
Added bonus having live music on!
Quite an average lunch. No real taste and most of the plate taken up by a monstrously large Yorkshire pudding!
Service was slow, asked twice for a straw which I then went to get from the bar myself.
We had to ask to order food.
Steak at £25 was warm at best, sent back and came back slightly warmer as if it had been in microwave for 30 seconds
Overall experience wasn’t great considering our bill was £95. Only thing positive was the prawns for starters and wasn’t a bad atmosphere.
We had a pleasant meal, but was a little disappointed that there was no mention of the fact that it was my 18th Birthday. I did put a request on my booking to say it was a meal for a 18th Birthday. I also got an e/mail asking why I had not turned up to the restaurant for my booking, when I actually did - maybe this was why the restaurant never took notice that it was my 18th.
Good staff, attentive but not too much. Food mostly enjoyed one steak sent back, replaced quickly.
Still over priced on the drinks
I was not able to move reservation from 1845 to 1930 as I was told restaurant was fully booked- this was not the case when we arrived and were told we had table for the night. chicken curry was the poorest we ever had.
waiter was very good and tried his best
will not be returning
We couldn't get a booking until later than we wanted as there were 5 people dining. When we arrived at the restaurant after having a drink downstairs the venue was empty. The burger was too overcooked the corners were hard and black . Chips were very greasy . Very little interaction with the staff and they most defintely not engaged in their role.
Great Sunday dinner spot, but pricey if you don’t have a tastecsdd
A lovely gastro pub with modern decor, and a wide ranging menu. The food was of an excellent standard and was very well presented. This was the first time I had been to As You Like It and it will not be the last!!
Fantastic place with lovely ambience.
Excellent food and great atmosphere, thank you, great gin selection.
this restaurant has a great atmosphere. Food was excellent & service very good. Good value for money
Really impressed with the restaurant. Service was fab! Welldone to Henry for that!
The food was delicious and you get what you pay for! Unfortunately I was too full to finish gutted! Definetly recommend!
Sunday lunch with grandchildren. A little slow to serve at first but then very attentive. Great rapport between staff and children. Better than usual kids menu - range of choices, not just nuggets and chips.
Love the layoput upstairs.
Excellent service...nothing us a oriblem for staff..food excellent...thank you
Great meal with a nice menu and beautifully prepared cocktails. All the food was delicious. Fish tacos were great. My Ramen was very tasty as was my GF's duck.
Service was a bit lack lustre. We had to keep reminding them for drinks. I had to wait 5 minutes for a spoon for my soup.
Great meal and would go back for sure. Just a lack of attention to detail on the service thats all!
Nice food and staff were very friendly. We were spending the evening catching up with friends and the only real complaint was that it was very noisy. It was like eating out in a nightclub at times.
Had a fantastic time on Sunday night celebrating a birthday. Fantastic food, lovely restaurant and good value. Had a great meal - couldn't fault anything. Good bar downstairs for a drink or too afterwards with live music and cocktails. Dont be put off by the rather dubious looking building next door!
Unfortunately the food was very slow to arrive, greasy and pricey despite the offer we used, has gone down hill
This was my first time being in the restaurant. The atmosphere was very lively. The receptionist was very kind, polite and ready to help. The bar was well stocked and and the design really good and inviting. The waiters were very friendly and knew the menu and were ready to answer our questions and offer suggestions. The drinks were a bit pricey but i would pay that for the nice welcome i got.
I would definitely visit again and recommend 'As you like it to my friends'
Recommended by friends and we were not disappointed. Service was first class and very attentive. I accidentally spilt the small shot glass and immediately someone cleaned it up and supplied a free replacement. Food and drinks were reasonably priced and good quality. I had calamari and a sirloin steak and my wife had a good portion of mussels and the chicken. We had 2 real ales and large glass of wine. Bill about £66. I found the musak a little loud but we could have been at a poor table. Would certainly return.
I was met with a glass of prosecco as it was my birthday and our lovely waitress couldn't do enough for us. The drinks were quick and food was excellent! Well priced too. We were then escorted to a table to watch the band which had been reserved for us and I had another free cocktail - would 100% recommend to a friend, fab place!! Our waitress's name was Ellie - thank you for a wonderful evening.
Great place foods was great one of the best places in Newcastle
Great food, staff did a great job. Enjoyed the meal.
Requested a nice table for a special occasion , this was given without any issue. Service , ambience , food and drinks all excellent as usual. The waitresses were helpful, friendly and efficient. Would recommend and will return.
Best fish and chips at a sitdown ever! The assortedcdesserts tray was also fantastic. Highly enjoyable occasion and great staff approach all round.
Always enjoy love the food & wine very comfortable, decor outstanding. If I had to say one negative comment when upstairs in restaurant loo’s bit of a trek but because everything else superb can put up with that.
Fantastic Sunday lunch. Huge Yorkshire puddings, lots of veg, lamb was tender and succulent. No complaints.
