I cannot say enough good things about this fantastic restaurant.. The menu offers a fantastic variety from around the globe and the flavour and presentation of the food is exceptional. Four of us dined there early on a Saturday evening recently and we all had something different - we were all suitably impressed ! A shame we couldn't stay longer as we had to get to a show - but Food is one of those places where you are not rushed, and you could easily while away a pleasant, relaxed evening over a few bottles of wine - which we also sampled and is equally fabulous! Fantastic value for money as well - i can't recall having such fabulous food at such a reasonable price! Excellent service (the staff are great), excellent food, excellent value - we'll go again when we're down that way again without a doubt!!

I've visited Food more times than I care to remember. Unlike other eateries in Worthing that are cafe-bars masquerading as restaurants, Food has an eclectic menu and a proper atmosphere. The lunch menu has always served me well, offering quick service and good dishes at prices more akin to cafes and takeaways. The evening menu is great for entertaining family and friends although somewhat pricier. For anyone visiting Worthing, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Food, particularly at lunchtime!

We have been here several times now, as a couple, with adult friends and as a family with young children. Every time we have had great service and the food has been fantastic each time. The children have good food choices and they like the quirky names of their meals. I would recommend to go their with friends or family. On a Sunday kids eat for £1!! Very good.. We will be back very soon.

Date of visit 17/04/14 Seated quickly and our orders taken. Waiters were friendly. The food was up to its usual good standard. Everthing arrived hot. It is a bit expensive, and I do think its on the edge of being too expensive for what you get. All in all it was not bad, not great, just nice

We live in Milton Keynes and have on many occassions travelled South just to eat here. Not only we love the fresh food but the amazing staff who seem to really enjoy what they are doing. Visited on Easter weekend, restaurent was busy as expected but still managed to find a table for three of us. Drinks arrived quickly followed..

Lovely staff - excellent service which is tempered to the customer and the occasion of your visit! Food - excellent and never had any complaints - would thoroughly recommend to anyone - have visited on many varied occasions and have always been received politely and served in a professional and pleasant manner. Have visited several times as a couple/family and friends so difficult to qualify for the visit selection below

Love love love this restaurant. The service s excellent and the food is fantastic. I highly recommend their popcorn prawns. My husband says their beef Wellington is the best he has ever had. We do not think this is expensive we have paid the same at Miller and Carter and believe me food is in a different league

We have visited Food a few times since moving down to Worthing and have always enjoyed the experience. Staff are always friendly and welcoming, food well prepared and pleasant and efficient waiting staff. The menu whilst varied doesn't try to offer too many options and sticks to what they know is successful and popular. They now offer a fixed price lunch menu with a good selection of favorites, plentiful portions and reasonably priced.

A real treasure in Worthing! Wonderful ambience, exquisite décor and perfect attention from waiting staff - all combined made our daughter's birthday lunch a wonderful experience and one which we will repeat again soon. Having driving up from Kent to Worthing this restaurant certainly gave us a brilliant dining experience and fabulous food which lived up to the delightful descriptions on the menus. Well done all at The Food - keep up the good work.

There were four of us, we had two staff attending at various points. The food was brought to the table hot, as opposed to warm, and was delicious. The waiter and waitress played a large part in what was a great evening.

My partner and I visited Food two saturday lunchtimes running. The £7 lunchtime menu is very good value although not a big selection. The actual restaurant is beautifully decorated & the staff look very smart. We both had the steak & frittes. The steak was not large but enough for a non-heavy lunch, very nice quality. The 2nd week we took my mother. I had the roast pork, my partner had the pulled pork in a bap, my mother had the steak. Again all the food was excellent quality. My mother & I had the fudge brownie for dessert which was very tasty & well presented. Only a couple of things that were not up to scratch. Both visits we were shown *almost* to the table, but told "It's over there", rather than being seated at our table. We were not offered any sauces with our mains and there were no napkins offered with the (very messy) desserts, I had to go & find some myself.

Loved this restaurant after a Saturday evening visit. Service was impeccable throughout but not obtrusive. A great selection on the menu and our meals were very good. Slightly at the pricier end for Worthing but well worth it!

In April 2014, said about Food.

The outside of the restaurant is very misleading because it looks like a very small, drab place, but once inside it opens up into a big two tiered, modern restaurant. We booked a table for 6 but two more people joined us last minute. The staff quickly added an extra 2 places to the table with no fuss, and there was easily enough room for us all. The menu was quite pricey with an average main course costing approx. £15, but the express menu provided a good range of £7 options. The food was tasty and the serving size was plentiful. The desserts were also a little pricey with an average dish costing approx. £6, but they were tasty with the exception of the marmalade flavour profiteroles, and the exceedingly hard biscuits served with the cheese. The service was good; all the staff were friendly and helpful. We were celebrating a birthday so we took our time (approx. 3 hours) and were never made to feel like we should move on. The only minor change I'd make in future is to not be seated under the stairs near the kitchen.
