Decided to celebrate my birthday with my boyfriend here. Amazing food, service and ambience. The staff was very pleasant and professional. Steak was cooked to perfection and was well presented. We also really liked the decor. They have a huge dried meat storage, wit a glas front the restaurant. A real eye catcher. 10/10 would recommend.

Service was great however we found the food pretty average which is a shame when you are paying above average prices. I asked for my steak rare and I would say it was medium which you would hope they get that right when they specialise in steaks. Unfortunately we probably wouldn’t go back in a hurry.

Our first trip to Bessie on a Sunday night and we loved the low lighting of the restaurant, definitely added to the atmosphere of the place. We had the short rib & aged ribeye and both were amazing! Cooked to perfection and too hard to pick a favorite! Sides we had the potato croquettes and vege special of asparagus and both were delicious. We squeezed in desert and had the Malibu panna cotta and chocolate marquise, yum! Overall a wonderful experience for a special occasion and we will be back!

Very cool lowly lit lighting which I thought added to the atmosphere. Food was incredible and the service was top notch.
