Overall, this was a great dining experience. The food options were largely traditional fare, and really well cooked.
Louis, our waiter, was friendly, attentive and efficient. Even though there was a misunderstanding over one of the orders, the staff were up front and apologetic and it did not detract from our enjoyment at all. We ordered duck spring rolls, mussels, lamb shank, peanut butter cheesecake and creme brulee.
All good.

Nice, friendly service from the moment we arrived- bar staff & waitresses. Good, nicely cooked food we enjoyed( not so keen on the frozen chips under the steak on the sizzle plate to prevent cooking!)

Lovely service and really good food. Although my steak was slightly overdone, it didn’t take away from the rest of the meal which was delicious. Wonderful customer service too, very friendly and attentive. Thank you.

We had a very nice birthday celebration dinner. Food good from yummy garlic bread to a shared platter and mains of steak and salad. Sadly no room for dessert. Staff were busy but still attentive.

Second visit as good as the first. Service very good and everything in sequence. I had the stone steak which was large and well cooked. My wife had the special oven cooked snapper which was again very good portion size was generous. Will visit again.

This was our second time to Flames on 40 and this visit was even better than the first. The service was first rate, the food excellent and great wine, with a First Table being "the icing on the cake", if you'll excuse the pun! Thank you Flames on 40 and thank you First Table. I can't recommend both highly enough.

After hiding inside all day away from the 30+ degrees heat, we were desperately hoping the restaurant would have air con.. which thankfully they did! Great start and it just got better. Lovely welcome by the staff all very friendly and helpful. Food and drinks came out in a very timely manner - not too early, not too late - just right. Two of us had burgers, the third had fish and chips all very tasty and well cooked. Make sure you take a good appetite with you as you will not be leaving hungry! We will definitely be back.

The staff were friendly and helpful,and cheerful They explained the menu fully and were on for a joke. Even when the brandy sauce steak didn't ignite the young waiter went to the trouble of getting another batch. top marks. Thankyou. Cheers Geoffrey & Adrianne Chilton.

Extremely friendly staff greeted us warmly and showed us to our table. Very efficient waiters food was fairly prompt and food was very tasty. My husband had steak perfect. We shared 2 plots of pepper calamari very large entrees . Kids had burger and chips, loved it and other child had kids chicken wings and chips loved it. I had roast chicken, be huge portion tasted delicious but chicken a bit dry. Deserts were rhubarb and apple crumble, best I've ever eaten and a mixture of ice cream for kids meal. I certainly will go for dinner here again. 8/10.

We had the steak of the day and the Chicken Saltimbocca.
Food was very good, only thing was the veggies of the day were very weighted by a lot cauliflower - quite a boring filler
Staff were friendly but seemed a bit out numbered by customers as our drinks took a long time to get to us each time we ordered, although we were early and not a lot of others there when we first ordered and they still took a noticeably long time to arrive at our table.

A warm welcome and friendly staff set the tone for a lovely evening. The specials were described in enthusiastic detail and did not fail to impress. Deliciously fresh snapper for the ladies and Flintstone sized steaks for the men, cooked to perfection. The cheesecake was a superb finale. We will be back!
