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!

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.

This was our second visit to Food, and was even better than the first time. It was our Son's birthday and this is his favourite restaurant. Everyone's food was lovely, mine was sublime. I had the popcorn prawn starter.amazing! I had the lamb main course and it was divine. The drinks & wines were great and the waiters were very friendly & attentive, although not overly so. They are a credit to the restaurant, as clearly so are the chefs. Thank you "Food" for making a special night even better :D

My husband and I can be quite 'snobbish' when it comes to food and often have very high expectations! We first visited this restaurant over a year ago and were extremely surprised that we had found a restaurant that serves high quality, fresh food at very reasonable prices! We decided to have lunch here today (5/03/14) and not only has the quality of food amazingly increased but the staff were fantastic. They were accomodating towards us straight from the start opening doors and even providing us with a table with enough room for our new baby's car seat? In an area where I could also feed discreetly. All staff on duty interacted well with all customers and created a welcoming and fun atmosphere! We have left completely satisfied. I have never heard a bad review about this restaurant from all the people I know have visited.

A delightful restaurant with great food, great service and fabulous atmosphere. A hidden gem in Worthing, from the moment you enter the restaurant there is an aura of sophistication and quality but no matter who you are, you will not feel out of place. I came here for a family meal and was amazed by the service from the staff, all of whom were extremely friendly, receptive, and engaging. I was even taught how to make a rose from a serviette (however it does mean that I will need to carry perfume everywhere I go so that I can add the finishing touches to the rose)!! The menu is cleverly designed and each dish tells you a different story, my favourite being "Paella stuffed squid", even if you're not a seafood fan the dish description is definitely worth a read. For starters I had the 'muscles in thai red sauce', I scoffed them down so quickly that I was tempted to order the same dish for my main, however, I like to be spontaneous and opted for the 'Louisiana street food' dish which was packed with flavour. It seemed wrong to ruin this meal with a standard pint of beer so I thought best to go for some red wine. However, I have zero knowledge about wine - one of the staff members recommended 'Jim Barry - Cover Drive' red wine and since I have impressed my colleagues at work by recommending they try this Australian wine (either in restaurants or purchase a bottle from wine sellers to try at home). Sorry, I almost forgot to mention, I did have a Woo Woo as well.

Food is a very good restaurant. It is well run and has a very good kitchen. The menu caters for Veg and staff are very attentive. Lots of classics and some more exciting choices Venison is often on the menu, excellent fish and standard steaks etc. There is a piano in the bar and often you will get music with your meal. Its not intrusive and if you like that kind of thing which I do it is great. The atmosphere is almost posh but not stuffy. Not too expensive. Some might find the big open space a little soulless. I have never had a bad night here and I have been a more than 10 times. Very happy to recommend.

This is one of our favourite restaurants in Worthing! The atmosphere is relaxing (especially if the pianist is playing) and the service and food superb. Brilliant choices on menus which please the youngest (21yrs) and oldest (90yrs) of our large family! We always choose this restaurant for special occasions and can highly recommend.

My last review on Food wasn't good but 1 year later feeling hungry and finding Food open on a cold February Sunday we thought we would give it another chance. We are so pleased we did. All our food wS delicious. The best roast beef and trimmings I have had for a long time. My Daughters Truffle risotto was superb. My Husbands meatballs were also tasty. The menus have been changed since our last visit and music turned down. Great service and would quite happily go there for Sunday lunch every week.

Had a post Valentines meal here, the service was attentive and brilliant. the food was served promptly and the atmosphere was buzzing. The menu whilst good and varied needs to change more frequently to encourage more repeat visits. The hearts and piano player helped the atmosphere.
