The three of us dined here on Monday night and had a great meal. There was plenty of choice and my seafood starter was huge. Two of us had the fillet steak and it was cooked perfectly and the Paris mash was really nice. Planning to return next year

Such a lovely way to spend my birthday with my family! The charcuterie platter, cajun dusted baby calamari and the pan seared atlantic salmon with soba noodles were amazing. We will definitely be returning.

Lovely restaurant, we were greeted & shown our table & we were the only diners for a little while, felt very special. We dined as a family & this was the first time we have done this. The attention to detail & timely serving of the hot & delicious meals was appreciated. Friendly service with a smile & who go the extra mile. We were very happy with our food choices & the variety. Loved the whole experience and would certainly eat out here again.

Bistro Dolby was a real winner. The food was prepared beautifully according to our requests, the service was friendly and informative. There was one thing one of the service staff was unsure about, but without a fuss she found out very quickly. She was an excellent hostess. The vibe of the place was very cool and when you combine the staff, the food ( excellent advice about dessert and wine) and the location, this is one of Newcastle's gems. Don't delay, go today!

This is my second visit and once again the food was excellent. We both ordered the steak and swapped the mash for broccolini. The sauce was delicious and steak cooked perfectly.

The restaurant’s online menu is quite different to what was actually on the menu. There were only 4 mains to choose from which was a small choice in our opinion.

My only criticism is the restaurant lacks atmosphere and privacy as it’s in the open foyer of the hotel and the huge window looks directly into another bar next door.

Using first table made the meal amazing value and took us to a restaurant we may not have known about.

Overall worth a visit.

Beautifully decked out for Valentine's Day. Staff were attentive and the set menu enjoyable. The duck and the pork were the standout dishes.

This was our 3rd time at Bistro Dalby and I was slightly disappointed that they are using the same menu as they were mid year, be nice to get a few more options. There were 4 of us and all of us enjoyed our meal. The service was great, the two waitresses on that night were friendly and responsive even though the restaurant did get busy.

Food was fantastic - especially the parmesan gnocchi..wow!... Steven our waiter was attentive without being intrusive - excellent service. The only small negative is the restaurant atmosphere. As its in the foyer of the hotel its a bit sterile...but dont let this put you off.

Had a lovely dinner at Bistro Dalby with friends. Three of us had the gnocchi entree with mushroom and goats cheese, it was wonderful, and the other had the scallops which were also a winner. The main meals were all fresh, enjoyable and very filling. Too full for dessert again

We had a great meal at Bistro Dalby. We agreed that the best entree we had was the wonderful mushroom gnocchi, the tuna steak was just very slightly overcooked but still tasty. Would definitely go again

We were welcomed by happy courteous staff who made you feel nothing would be too much trouble. The advantage of being first we were give the choice of table. The only down side was that the sample menu was not exactly the same but we were warned of that. The food was great, so very tasty, the service was lovely. Highly recommend
