Diverse tapas style menu with a delectable selection of meat and vegetarian dishes. Food presentation was appealing and the flavours were very good. The pork belly was just wow!! Great selection of wines also. Service was truly excellent with an engaging and entertaining waiter. Will definitely be back for seconds and thirds!

Had a great lunch at Concrete this week, fried chicken and calamari for a couple of smaller/snack plates followed by the burger. All round great food, always helped with top service too. Food came out quickly, service was spot on.

Had a lovely time choosing from the many options on the shared menu. Food was absolutely delish and the service spot on. Only recommendation is that the venue was a little cold especially where we were initially seated by the window., We were made to feel welcome and would be very keen to come back but perhaps in the spring!

Calamari starter and burger mains were good for a good price - got the feijoa sorbet (menu has now changed) which neither of us enjoyed, but we are English and don't really like feijoa..

Service was fantastic, both our waitress and the manager were lovely and helpful

Service was exceptional and the food was delicious. Atmosphere was ok but not great, feels more like a bar than a restaurant but was still nice. Would still recommend though. Our waitress was the highlight, she was great (forgot her name but she had short brown hair and had only been in the job two days).

Enjoyed dinner and drinks at Concrete. Buzzing with people even mid week. Service was great and staff even checked if we wanted another drink before happy hour was up. Food was nice, shared a few of the small plates and there was plenty of options.

The restaurant even tho in the middle of town during a busy time was not busy at all. It was nice and quiet. Music was a bit too loud when we walked in but was turned down. I ordered the venison salad. Combination was delicious. The helpful and friendly waiter explained that the menu was a week old so that helped me prepare myself to not have a high expectation. The food took 20mins to come out, I was very hungry so it might have felt like longer. A very nice and quiet place to go for lunch. Small and intimate and relaxing atmosphere. Indoors and outdoor seatings available. I would definitely come return to try more things off the menu :) Great customer service and very nice atmosphere.

Had an awesome evening on The Concrete Bars balcony enjoying their happy hour prior to our dinner. Service was super and flexible, allowing us to eat where ever we like and order some starters before the official 6pm booking. Will be back!

Enjoyed our meal - generous portions meant I couldn't finish my chicken burger. The service was also great. The only downsides? Firstly the noise; this bar is popular between 4:30 and 6:30 due to happy hour so if you prefer a more quiet atmosphere, maybe avoid that time. Secondly, the smoke from the balcony drifted into the bar and did reduce our enjoyment.

BUT!!! The piece de resistance? The salted caramel martini was sublime! Loved it!

Had a great night at Concrete! Was shown to our table straight away and the service followed quickly after which flowed so easily. Really loved the Poutine Fries and the Veg burger was really different to just a standard veggie patty and salad - it was really delish :)
