Good ambiance yet steep prices for less than impressive and average service

The place is nice as many Buddha bars, best seats did dinner are the ones below the statue and best places for drinks are the mezzanine above. Service was the lousiest we got Ina. Buddha bar or Tao, prices were the highest. The food was good , the sushi and drinks as well plus the ambiance,

Had a wonderful meal and enjoyed the music, drinks, dinner and dessert. The Vegetarian Curry was divine!

First time I was here was probably 16-17 years ago. Still just as cool as ever. Amazing relaxing ambience, great vibe. Friendly service....I think our waiter said there are 8 people working there since the restaurant opened. Unfortunately, the kitchen was closed but we had a refreshing, moderately priced bottle of French Rose and he provided us with a couple... More

A chic-trendy place you should visit at least once in your life. Good food, unique music and dark/cozy places to chill with your date. Oh, and do try the porn-star martini!

It was glitzy and nice, but not really a Parisien experience if that is what you are after. I have the Hotel Costes bar around the corner a better experience.

The prices were ridiculous. When we wanted to order, the waitress advised something else. 'Trust me' she said and we did. The food was very nice, the price absurd. This was not just our food, the prices in general are very, very high.

Visited with a group of friends on a Friday night. The restaurant was certainly "happening" with a hip crowd which added to the overall ambiance. Choosing from the menu was a challenge as the dining room is so dark. This was overcome by everyone using there smartphone flashlights but showers of light emanating from table after table was intrusive. Put... More

I came here after hearing rave reviews from hip, euro savvy friends of mine and had high hopes. I started off with the "Bubble W@p" cocktail, which was actually quite good but everything beyond that was just plain "Ok" aside from the man who seemed to be the manager who was really cordial, friendly, and attentive. I think I was... More

Overall loved this place. Cool, hip, young. Great music playing. Cool ambience. Delicious food. We ordered the sushi platter, tuna tartar, tuna entree, and chicken curry entree and loved everything. Minus 1 star because at these prices, I would expect better service. The waiter was never around, and quite uninterested when he was. However, I'll still definitely go back the... More
