Good food doesn't have to be fussy, at Coda Eatery we let the ingredients speak for themselves. We pick what's in season, sourced locally where we can, and create wholesome dishes that taste great - it's as simple at that. Loved for its laid back look and feel, Coda Eatery is perfect for a catch-up with friends before a concert, or a bite of supper after a business meeting.

After having booked by phone through the main reception I should have seen the writing on the wall when I arrived for dinner and there was no record of my booking. I was ushered to a table in any case where I sat to wait for my guest to arrive. I ordered a gin & tonic and read over the menu/wine list. Clearly I was waiting on another guest buy nonetheless I was asked on 2 occasions "are you ready to order" to which I replied... "I will wait for my guest to arrive" My guests arrives and is barley seated ONE minute when we were asked again to order. When we settled and enjoyed our pre-dinner drinks we ordered. On to the wine - Out of 12 red wines on the list, at least 4 were unavailable. We decided on a Chianti. Starter arrived. Crab Risotto. Excellent taste but more like an amouse bouche in size. 3 mouthfuls. Really bad value for the portion. The starter was cleared along with our still empty bread plates and we were then brought our wine. No bread was offered even though the large table next to us were offered bread from a large bread basket. I asked twice for bread. None was forthcoming. I actually stood and waved to another waiter with the bread basket and he didn't bother coming near us. I stated to the server that cleared the starter how small the portion was (I actually put a business card beside the starter and the card was bigger! Mains were served. Very good food. Nice sirloin and perfectly cooked and correct temperature. My guest asked for black pepper. He was given a peppermill. -Empty. Waitress came back eventually with another. At NO point did any manager come near us to ask how things were. Everyone seemed to be running around like headless chickens. No designated sections for staff meant that we didn't know who should be attending us. Seems to be whoever you can wave at when they rush past your table. Absolutely NO control or obvious management. Probable the worst service I have encountered in some time. It is such a shame as eatery has great potentia
