[quote=“honeybird”][quote=“Connel”]Just had to say big thumbs up ! on Sunday me, my missus & our baby daughter went to Carnegies for brunch…
We managed to get out usual comfy seat right in the corner (with the no smoking sign). For us the corner is great as we can sandwich our baby between us, staff & service were fantastic, we were very appreciative of the staff getting us hot water for the babies bottle & keeping smokers at least an empty table away. :bravo: :bravo: [/quote]
I’d love to come in and dine. But one question: is Carnegie’s still set up this way in regards to a “non-smoking” section? If I were seated in a non-smoking section, I would be pretty upset if I could still smell neighboring smokers. That would ruin the dining experience. Smokers seated 2 tables away doesn’t do the trick for me, as I’m very sensitive to smoke.
Thanks for reading.[/quote]
To be honest, pretty much. The seats nearest the DJ booth though are the least likely to be affected by smoke. During the day, that corner as well as the one described above are designated no-smoking areas. Should you make a reservation, we will endeavour to ensure that the smokers are seated furthest away from you within the seating plan we have. Fortunately, the high ceiling and good ventilation help dissipate, to a large extent, lingering smoke. Alternatively, there is the balcony, which is a smoking area and it only requires a small breeze to disperse the smoke. But then there are traffic fumes to contend with…
If you call us and state at the time of booking your strong preference for non-smoking, we will endeavour to make sure you are comfortable and well-looked after.
A much bigger environmental concern, however, would be finding yourself anywhere near Fred Smith whose malodorous attributes are well-known.
Hope this helps.
