    Disappointing steak which was rather dry and only 8 chips on the plate. Service good but meal not consistent with my last visit.

    Food fabulous as always great service and great value for money ??

    First time ever going to Soulville steakhouse, and the atmosphere was great, the music and the design of the place was nice. Really good food too!

    Fourth time I had been there.
    Prawn cocktail, to start, lovely.
    Rump steak with the green peppercorn sauce,
    Salad and triple cooked chips, absolutely gorgeous.
    Staff friendly and very professional.


    Absolutely amazing the food service staff everything was brilliant thank you. We will definitely be coming back.

    Food was nice nothing over the top place was empty so service was stated lunch menu 2 courses 7.99 but when we got there it was 8.95 :( not good probably go again cant complain value for money

    Lovely food as always. Great service, nice not to be rushed for the table. Not pressured for drinks or desserts.

    Absolutely love the place the chilled atmosphere is so good and go to be the best steak in Nottingham.

    Lovely food and great service.

    Great steak and brilliant value with the 20% off before 7 pm offer. Drinks are not cheap - but you are in the town centre after all. Recommended for a pre-theatre meal.

    Excellent food, service and value.

    Overall top experience loved everything about it, very friendly staff, the food was amazing will definitely go again & recommend.

    Food was really nice, everyone at the party enjoyed. Because we were seated upstairs we seemed to get forgotten about so every time we needed something we had to hunt for a staff member.

    Food very tasty and cooked to perfection, really friendly efficient service, highly recommended.

    Great food as always family really enjoyed it

    The table was booked for 2.30pm. The restaurant was very busy and we were still waiting at least 30 minutes later. however, the staff were amazing. very apologetic and offered free drinks. When finally got the food it was absolutely outstanding as always. Cannot fault anything. Thank you for taking the time to make all the diners feel welcome.

    Good food could have been hotter

    Excellent meal as always with first class service from the staff even though the restaurant was very busy. My wife and I always go with two other couples and have never been disappointed. We will be back again in January.

    Absolutely delicious food and the staff are so friendly and helpful.

    Lovely restaurant, staff friendly and food and service was excellent. Great value for money and lively atmosphere. Highly recommend.

    Excellent food, great music, service very attentive but quite slow, but as we were in no hurry, not a problem. Definitely going again.

    As usual, it was busy, who can complain. Good service, good food and music plus the 20% off early evening up to six. Been two weeks in a row so definitely appreciating Soulville

    Lovely meal, service a bit slow and please check your bill as we had 2 items added that were not ours!
    Lunchtime menu very good value.

    Good service but polite staff. Nothing too much trouble and the steak was cooked to our liking. Well done, will return!

    Meal was very nice steak cooked to perfection would go again.

    Great meal always caters for our allergy needs. great restaurant great food.

    Meal was beautiful and cooked to perfection. I like my steak burnt and was not dry at all. My partner likes his medium rare and was also perfectly done.
    Good portion sizes doesn't leave you feeling hungry afterwards.

    Excellent service...we love the atmosphere created with the soul music theme

    Great Food, good service, recommend the BBQ Ribs !
    Although we had booked via Go Dine and had confirmation, the booking had not got through to Soulville, so be careful if you are relying on this method of booking - probably best to phone to confirm.

    Absolutely fabulous food . We all really enjoyed it. Fab staff as well.

    The meals came out quickly and was hot. The service was good

    Great time at soulville with friends. As always food was freshly cooked and exceptional. Great vibe with the music in the background.

    The service was very friendly, two members of our party were running a little late but we didn’t get made to feel like we had to hurry to order when they did arrive. The food arrived quickly and was very tasty. Every member of the group enjoyed their steak. Really good atmosphere will definitely be going back

    Very nice as usual, do come here a lot. Never had a bad meal yet.

    The restaurant was great and we're very accommodating which they needed to be as the booking through go dine was a complete disaster. the restaurant had no booking for me and it was really embarrassing for me and my guest.

    Go dine booking did not work.

    We had a fab meal

    The best steak I've had in a very long time. The house red was also very palatable. The restaurant was very noisy, but to be expected one Friday, early evening.

    The meal was good and service excellent.

    The steak was lovely and mashed potatoes were perfect!

    Great restaurant, good food.

    Good food but staff were a little less attentive than other places. Took ages to even get a drink and even longer to order food.

    Very happy with the service and good food good price

    All food ordered was excellent but we found the noise level a little high as we couldn't have a good conversation

    Booked on line for 6 people but booking had only been confirmed for 2, however the soulville sorted the issue without any fuss.
    Meal was good.

    Lovely place the staff were very welcoming show us to our table on time.
    The food was very nice great portions we also like the decoration the soul legends photos around the place and the soul music in the background brought back some memories we will be going again soon and the price is reasonable so all in all we had a good meal and a good time.

    The staff were very polite didn't rush us into making a decision on what we wanted. It was lovely food and a reasonable price. I have been to Soulvilles often with my work colleagues so know the service and food are good. Overall a great place to eat out.

    Meal was amazing, quick and very friendly service, would definitely be going back again!

    Our meals were lovely, we all enjoyed it, especially the chips.

    Great service great food cooked to our liking.

    3 friends went for a late afternoon meal and had the special menu of 2 courses for less then £10.00. Well worth it. The food was very good. We all had steaks which were cooked exactly the way we like them and the extras were excellent. Would most definitely recommend this deal. Staff were pleasant as usual.

    Great. Meal definitely go again

    Meal was great , good service but very noisy background music to the point that we were shouting at each other to talk across the table .

    Food fantastic as usual and the lunchtime menu 3 courses for £10.95 bargain, the only thing that let it down was the service - waiter clearly didn't want to be there, other staff getting changed into uniform at bar and eating their packed lunch, said on booking was for Birthday but no acknowledgement whatsoever

    Great food... great staff nothing more to say, will deffo go back

    Great food... great staff nothing more to say l,will deffo go back

    Great food,service was prompt and friendly staff,a top dining experience,highly recommended

    Ate at the Soulville Steakhouse 21-06-2018.
    Great service, staff very helpful. Once the food was ordered it came out at a reasonable time, piping hot and as always delicious. Will definitely return.

    Lovely food and excellent service. Music was quite loud so was difficult to have a conversation. Will go back again though as it was one of the nicest fillet steaks I've had in a long time!

    Excellent service and well-cooked food.

    Very enjoyable, never disappointed, value for money.

    Brilliant service, wonderful food, the steaks were absolutely delicious and so tender, will defo be coming back

    great restaurant great food.

    great restaurant great food!

    The food was really nice the waitresses are lovely always asking if everything was ok. We will be booking again.

    Five of us had the meal. Starters and main course all brilliant. Steaks cooked to perfection. Drinks a bit expensive and bitter too cold.

    The meal was perfect!

    Food was first class as always plus good service would recommend to anyone


    Love this place definitely best steak I've had eating out, service bit slow but looked like staffing issue so not their fault, plenty of choice always cooked to perfection. Took my sister who's never been she'll definitely be coming back well impressed. Thanks Souville Nottingham

    Good food but very noisy for our liking.

    Absolutely amazing food as always. Lovely service and great dining experience.

    We arrived 35 mins late (my fault) but our booking was still accommodated and straight away too. Orders were taken quickly but without feeling rushed. The food seemed to take a while, but not excessively long. Was worth the wait through. Steak cooked to perfection and mash piping hot. Peppercorn sauce was lovely, nice amount of pepper so it had a kick. Creamy but not to rich or heavy. Desserts are very reasonably priced and a nice portion size. Really enjoyed the evening. This was my second visit and I'll definitely be going back.

    Took my mum in law for the first day she loved it x x

    Great food, service and ambiance is great especially if you're into soul and motown music.

    Love it here go every time I go into Nottingham!


    First class enjoyed everything would recommend to friends & family

    The staff had decorated my table as it was my birthday.

    I loved this place. Yet again a gorgeous meal.

    Steak cooked just as we liked it, will recommend this restaurant to all family and friends.

    Food was excellent as always. Service very good, staff are very friendly and efficient. Ambience very good, the experience was relaxing. Will definitely return and recommend.

    We booked a table for 6. I had a rump steak which was good but overcooked. I asked for rare and in my opinion it was medium. The rest of the party had chicken dishes and burgers which were just ok. I think if you go to a steak house it is wise to have a steak. The starters were just frozen deep fried convenience food. I will go back and have a steak but insist it's cooked how I ask.

    Fantastic service and a very tasty meal.

    Nice meal cooked to our liking. Only gripe was that the restaurant was cold and many customers had to sit and eat in there coats.

    Restaurant was really busy, perhaps had taken too many bookings so we had to wait nearly an hour for our meal. One waitress was really miserable and couldn't raise a smile. Forgot part of the order - brought it but didn't apologise. Meal was excellent and will go again because love the style and usually excellent, think it was just too busy!

    Food was excellent, lovely place, my favourite.

    The steaks were cooked perfectly but the chips were a little bit hard.

    Food was lukewarm. Waitress confused our order. Not asked how our meal was or if we would like more drinks. Had to ask for the desert menu. Overall service was extremely poor. Used to be one of my favourite restaurants but is now very grubby and could do with a lick of paint.. massive disappointment.

    Best steak ever. Good service and great music. Loved the jukebox.

    Absolutely love this place. The food is amazing. I will certainly be going again.

    Meal steak really nice. Chips a little over cooked. Mushroom cold tomato under cooked.

    Once again never fails brilliant

    Lovely food good value for money!

    Excellent food as always, early dinner offer very worthwhile, good service and nice setting.

    Excellent, we booked for the lunch time menu great value.

    Had a lovely meal and the staff were very good!

    Great service again and great food!

    Always guaranteed a decent steak and cooked to perfection. Sauce wasn’t quite right though, too much mustard and quite watery. Will return as we love the atmosphere.

    Lovely and tasty food as always.

    Lovely set out value for money, was brilliant! We had 3 course for 9.95 right size portions. Just wish they would offer a sauce with meat as tended to be little dry.

    Love this restaurant food & staff are brilliant! x

    Another great meal!

    Works party and everyone enjoyed there good it was hot and fast and totally great all round, thanks!

    First visit. Enjoyable experience, good value food, friendly staff.

    My first visit to the Soulville Steak House and the experience was rewarded with a lovely fillet steak which melted in my mouth it was so tender. Good choice on the menu and service was attentive but also gave us time to chat.

    A great steak, well cooked and served. It never disappoints.

    Enjoyed my birthday meal very much. The waiters/waitresses are very attentive, no waiting. Will definitely go again!

    Did not seem the same somehow, the soup was cold and the jacket potato under done. Will go again must have been an off day.

    Fantastic food. Staff excellent service. Well worth the money. Love this place so much. Can't wait for the next meal.

    Really enjoyed the meal at Soulville!

    As usual really enjoyed the meal at Soulville on Saturday. The service was very good, staff are always very pleasant. Not too keen on the new menus as we all struggled to read them due to the glare. The ribs and steak were very good and the paste was outstanding according to one member of our party. Good time had by all.

    Have been many times always been happy with everything. GREAT STEAKS .

    Great meal , great service

    I love soulvilles everything is always perfect

    The meal was fine, the service was fine and the atmosphere was fine. It wasn't the same ambiance that the place used to have.

    Food was amazing, well worth booking again, but the staff need to cheer up abit & the jukebox needs sorting - loud 1 minute & barely noticeable the next.

    I love this place, first time visit for my brother and sister in law and couldn't praise it enough nothing we could fault. Thank you!

    Often visited; never disappointed. Sometimes music a little too loud for us oldies.

    Called in for a lunch meal which was good value. I thought that the portions might be smaller but they weren`t and the steak was fantastic - tender and tasty. The staff were friendly too.

    Been to Soulville many times, always been happy with everything.

    I have been going to soulville for years an decided to take my mum for a treat. I advised her before ordering that she would be fine with a rump rather than a filler steak as I had never had a bad one and they were always tasty. Unfortunately, Mum's steak was tough and overlooked from the med-rare requested - mine was fine !

    Lovely meal, staff were lovely and great service! Will be going again.

    Lovely meal, tasty food and perfect steak!

    On entrance was greeted with smiles very friendly staff and easy to talk to if you needed anything, the food was very nice and the price was very reasonable, we had a great night and would definitely recommend this to my family and friends.

    Lovely meal at Soulville Steakhouse. Just make sure you check your bill as tried to charge for 4 sauces when we only had 2 and also didn't take off 20% discount for early dining- all resolved when we queried it.

    Food was delicious. Staff were polite and attentive.
    Very good value for money. Great food and loved the atmosphere. Will be going back for sure.

    I have been to this steakhouse many times, always pleased, the best steaks are there. Will go again.

    Fantastic ribs, meat just falls off the bone!

    A pre theatre dinner 20% off good value but the starter of crab cakes were a bit dry and our ribeye steak was very tough and fatty, I have eaten here many times before so the 1st time I've experienced disappointing food not a good start for my friend though.

    The food was amazing the second time around! I ordered my steak blue and the first cut that came out was more medium which I wasn't impressed with. As soon as I told the staff they were very helpful offered me discount or to redo my meal and they cooked me a whole new meal. The second steak was perfect and one of the best cuts I've ever had. This would have all been 5 star if the steak had been like this first time but the staff made it very pleasant still.

    Meal was cooked to perfection, better than when I went Marco Pierre Whites. More on our plates and probably a 1/3 of what MPW cost. I will be back!

    Food is amazing, steak cooked perfectly. The red wine and onion gravy with the mashed potato is worth travelling up from London alone!
    The staff and service is alway attentive and spot on. We look forward to our next visit.
    So highly recommend this unassuming little gem.

    Great food, the steak was cooked to perfection! I would highly recommend eating here.

    Soulville Steakhouse is a top steak restaurant. My steak was cooked to perfection - really pink and tender - perfection!

    Love it! My girlfriend took me as a surprise and I can't believe we have never visited before. The portions are HUGE! Since our first visit we have never been able to finish 3 courses there and often end up sharing a starter and dessert. Will be visiting again soon as now we have discovered it we can't stay away.

We say…

Fun '60s steakhouse near Brian Clough statue.

The Soulville Steakhouse has long established itself as one of Nottingham city centre's most popular destinations for anyone craving a good steak dinner, serving a solid menu with a twist of '60 American swagger. 

The steak menu offers you the full range from rump through T-bone to fillet. Homemade sauces include green peppercorn with brandy and fresh cream as well as a house BBQ - adding flavours to make every plate truly irresistible.

If you or one of your party isn't big on red meat (or meat at all), no worries; there's a decent choice of chicken, pasta and veggie dishes to choose from, too.

Pace yourself though because this all-American diner serves monster portions; you'll never leave with an empty stomach! 

The restaurant itself is packed with 60’s memorabilia, with timeless lyrics printed on the walls and a Lambretta scooter in the window. You'll dine to a soundtrack of classic soul and Motown played out through  1964 chrome Wurlitzer jukebox.

Situated just off Old Market Square on Queen Street, it could not be more centrally located.

Book your table at Soulville Steakhouse today for a slice of old school American dining in the heart of Nottingham.
