Harden's survey result
Paul Askew’s “seriously good” open-kitchen four-year-old with large skylight (“attractive if slightly Spartan”), near the Liverpool Philharmonic – is the most commented-on European restaurant in town, and many diners consider it “the star of the Liverpool food scene” thanks to his “excellent” tasting menus (there’s quite an array, and also a cheaper lunch and earlybird prix fixe alternative); and with the sourcing of high-quality local ingredients often commended. For a minority, though, the scoff seems more middling, and service – while “top quality” to most reporters – at times comes over as “a bit stuffy” or “inflexible”.
“Paul Askew is constantly raising the bar” at his ambitious, open-kitchen two-year-old near the Liverpool Philharmonic – a contemporary space with a large glazed roof, “artfully suspended lights, very comfortable seating and sumptuous table linen”. From a variety of tasting menus (including a vegan option) the results are “gorgeous, with very attractive presentation” and “service is attentive but not intrusive”.
Just across the road from the Liverpool Philharmonic, Paul Askew’s year-old venture is “getting better all the time”. “It’s a beautiful, airy room with the kitchen visible through a long window”, service is “wonderful”, and there was more consistent praise this year for the “fantastic” cuisine.
The Art School Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Sea bass; Skate; cheese; Mille feuile. Bit of a balls up with the food - was supposed to have halibut rather than hake - thought the staff handled it well by giving us a complimentary cheese course (with port!) though. Pretty basic error though."
"Solid food cooked with flavour. Not a patch on Roski "
