Service were amazing, friendly and fast. The food was of high standard. I had the rack of lamb, cooked perfectly and my husband had the steak and we enjoyed everything on the plate. The restaurant has a nice and warm atmosphere. I would highly recommend First in Windsor.

At First on Windsor all four of us were given a warm welcome, which was very much appreciated on a cold winter’s evening.
The young man who greeted us took care of us through the entire experience and was very pleasant and catered for all our needs without hesitation.
The meals were all superb. Two of us had salmon, one had steak and the other ordered the rack of lamb. All of the meals were generously sized and beautifully presented. Everything was cooked to perfection and the components of the meals complemented one another, resulting in four delicious meals.
We all enjoyed ourselves very much and hope to repeat the experience soon.

My first evening dining experience at First in Windsor went well. Our waiter, Curtis was welcoming and attentive without being overbearing. Being 5.30 pm there were only 2 other people there so everything went well and the food was delivered to our table in good time. Our meals were great. I had the Cashew encrusted Lamb which was absolutely delicious with a sauce that enhanced the meat beautifully and the accompanying vegetables were perfect. My friends both ordered the Creamy Chicken Pasta and enjoyed every last bite. We were able to enjoy ourselves without being rushed, which I feel is important when dining out, and we certainly loved being able to finish our conversation before moving on with our evening. Thank you First Table and thank you First in Windsor.

More cafe like than resturant, but nice and tidy, 4 of us went to dinner and 3 out of the 4 were happy, the 4th not impressed with his main which was the steak the rest of us happy with ours, we all had dessert which we were all happy with.
The menu was a bit restrictive especially with entrees or starters as in there really wasn’t any, hence why we all had dessert, all up an enjoyable night and Windsor Wines right over the road which is always great for a visit.

We had a warm welcome at First in Windsor, service was excellent, food was very good and was served in good time. We had sautéed blue cod with fries and salad - all very fresh and well prepared. Felt guilty about the 50% discount!

My partner ordered the pork dish and absolutely loved it. Myself I ordered the creamy chicken pasta... it's to die for amazing loved it.
The waiter was polite efficient and friendly. Excellent experience thank you

The food was good, steaks cooked well—if I’m being picky—perhaps lacked a little seasoning, but kind of reminded us of a good home cooked meal. Service was really great. Would recommend.

My wife, 5yrs old daughter and I enjoyed our First on Windsor evening dining experience. We received great and friendly service. There was an area with some books and toys to entertain our daughter while we waited for our meals (which didn't take long before they came out) and after she had enough which allowed my wife and I to also enjoy our delicious meals. Great menu and also a great kids menu. Would recommend to others. A+

A lovely restaurant from the minute you enter. The decor is pleasing to the eye and there is plenty to keep the children interested. We were greeted warmly and well looked after. More water was brought to our table without us asking. The food was outstanding and enjoyed by all. Thank you First in Windsor.
