The water situation was not as good, as they fell into the common restaurant trap of giving patrons too-small glasses of water - is it to lure you into ordering wine or something? Ain't gonna happen, folks! The water refill sitch was way too slow for me, especially considering how the sun beating through the glass ceiling was baking us alive, so I eventually asked for a pitcher, destroying my facade of fitting in at such a place and not being a camel.
And that's kind of the general vibe for the whole meal. Nothing was bad, it was pretty nice, but just fine. Once we left, Husbo P and I discussed our impressions and we both kinda shrugged and said ‘it was fine.’ And it was fine fine-dining, hence the title of this post do you get it you get it. I think it has the potential to be great, and if you choose the right dishes or get the super-long tasting menu where you try everything, then it probably will be great for you. But with three courses there is too much riding on each one, and when there are little weaknesses, or weak dishes, it stands out too much to be worth the high cost. Still, we’re glad we tried it. It was fine. And I’m always excited to see high-end restaurants using aquafaba. I think if you are in Liverpool and looking for a special occasion restaurant, the Art School would be a good choice.
ART SCHOOL, LIVERPOOL, UK, EUROPE FOR NOW
Water speed: Not great, but they brought me a small pitcher when I finally asked.
Service: Very nice, as is expected at such a place. It looked like the chef came out to talk to other (older) patrons but not us, but like it's probably for the best. "How was everything?!" It was fine.
Bathrooms: The bathrooms are small single servings and very nice. However, the door to the hallway they are located in is not marked, so I opened the door to the kitchen by accident. They should mark that freaking door.
Food: Great presentation, decent food.
