Great food l, good dishes very tasty

This was my second visit to the restaurant. The menu is interesting and modern, the wine is excellent, and the food is delicious. But the small plate formula is extremely annoying, and it betrays an amateur quality about the kitchen. Seasoned chefs would be able to time and send out dishes in the expected order. I do not want to receive a "large" plate (i.e. a main dish) before a "small" plate (i.e. a starter). I do not want to always share my dishes, and I don't want to eat my small plate while my dining companion is waiting for theirs. Some dishes do not really go together, and yet they're sent out at the same time. On this particular visit there was also a long time between plates being sent out. For this reason, I don't visit the restaurant more often, even though I live just up the road and I do think the food is very good. There are several restaurants of a similar quality in Newcastle--the Broad Chare, Trakol--that do not rely on the small plate formula (a method that has really fallen by the wayside in places like London and New York because it just begins to piss people off), and I largely choose them over Route. If Route got rid of the small plates, this would definitely be one of the best places in Newcastle.

Our first visit to Route but it definitely won't be our last. Great service and absolutely gorgeous food. The different tastes in each dish were superb.

Made a return visit for Sunday lunch. Overall the food experience was once again excellent. Only had the bread for a starter and it was superb. Main meal and dessert achieved the usual standards of excellence.
I’m really sorry to have to say this but feel it needs pointing out is that some of the service left a bit to be desired. Whilst the guy who I assume was the restaurant manager was excellent the younger guy kept forgetting to respond to requests. It took multiple requests for side plates, extra water, horseradish and sweet menu all of this despite him initially asking if we wanted those items. Superficially he was very nice and pleasant we just think he needs to concentrate a little more. I know this experience was repeated on the table behind us in respect of the horseradish request as we knew the people on the table. In addition their request for mint sauce was never met at all. We gave them our horseradish. I’m sure it’s something than can be improved and I’m sorry to have to raise this but felt that it needed to be done.
Notwithstanding this issue the overall meal was superb as ever and I’m sure we will return.

Quite a few friends had recommended Route so with pals up from London we thought it would be a good place to catch up while enjoying some tasty food.
Suffice to say that the friends who recommended Route all have excellent taste. We loved everything from the decor to the excellent and friendly service, the very comprehensive wine list and, most importantly, the fabulous food.
The food is served tapas style arriving as it's ordered. We'd been tipped off in this respect and worked our was steadily down the menu starting with several smaller plates including the unbelievably good Black treacle Bread and some very tasty fish cakes.
Moving down, we hit the mid-section of the menu with increasing gusto. A selection of lovingly prepared dishes were demolished with plate licking veracity. All of them were excellent but the absolute highlights were the lightly breaded herring which came with a sensational lobster mayonnaise and the absolute star of the show, roasted squid with chilli butter, green olive, cumin and baby gem lettuce. The latter has been installed in my pantheon of Top 10 dishes ever.
That's as far as we got and after excellent coffees to finish we paid up and left but all the while vowing to return in order to explore further.
The North East has long been a culinary wasteland but that is changing rapidly. In the last week, we have eaten at The Patricia, Hjem and Route and each and every one was innovative and excellent. Happy days indeed and long may they continue.
