I have never had such poor service in my life. Waiters stand inside and chat. Food took almost 40 minutes. This place wont see me again.

The food is always top notch at Rhapsody's. The service is great and we love the vibe and atmosphere. I recommend the chicken lovers for starters:)

We are from Canada and have been trying out a lot of the different restaurant in Pretoria. We finally tried Rhapsody Menlyn and was pleasantly surprised. They had pop/blues singer who was very good. We had the pepper bomb which was awesome and we order it every time now. The service has always been excellent. The servers recognize us and... More

When ever we're invited with friends and they say Rhapsody's, I cringe. I have never had good service, food, or anything else here. The cheesiest music is played, the food is mediocre at best, the service is terrible, we barely see our waiter, except for when he brings us the bill, which he happens to have 'accidentally' added quite a...

It was a Saturday morning and the restuarant was busy. I understand that service would be slower but we sat without menus or someone taking our drinks order for 15 minutes. Then we waited even longer for our drinks to arrive and then we finally left when the food didn't come after 45 minutes from the time we placed an... More

Great Place, Great Music, Awesome bathrooms, Great Shooters - just the people that hang out there are a little too snooby to acutally let there hair down and really party

Went with friends for snacks & drinks in the evening and the service was very bad. The waiter had a string of excuses why he cannot serve us a platter. The supervisor did a worse excuse pitch than the junior. Finally after long convincing because we had our drinks already, when the food arrived, it was pathetic. As if this... More

I have visited this restaurant 4 times in this last year during business trips tp SA. The quality of the food is really good, the menu gives you a lot of choice. They even have a fresh sushi bar! Which was surprisingly well, actually..My favourite dish: Espetada Chicken! Nice wines and a very nice atmosphere. In the weekends the place... More

Went there recently on different occasions, not impressed on both. 1st time was group/ business finger snacks and cocktails, could pick up a bit of racism with manager who brought out platters, my table was never offered the sushi, we kept getting same thing chicken wings & ribs, mind u the wings tasted like they'd been boiled before they tried...
