I was amazed last week when I received the TripAdvisor "Top Restaurants in Johannesburg" listing and did not find Signature even in the top 100. This is by far one of the top restaurants in the city. The food is always incredible. We both had food from the daily specials on this visit and were blown away by the creativity,... More

Despite the rather incongruous setting (in a shopping mall) Signature has a classy vibe with well executed dishes, accompanied by live music.

People, this is not fine dining. Believe me, I know, i work in a fine dining restaurant. I wanted to go with my husband for an intimate dinner with music. Signature is supposed to be known for its jazz. I rang the number on the website all day Friday and eventually the phone was answered at about 2pm. I booked... More

Loved the food was the real experience of fine dinning and excellent service but for some people the menu would be complicated if you don't know what you really want to get.

poor service, poorly trained staff, food average at best. Two in our party suffered food poisoning. The staff focused on serving us french wine in stead of great local wines. Overpriced but good location

There were five of us for dinner, and ambience was nice, but for the price, thought that this location was lacking. We were dropped off from hotel car and took escalator in mall. Greeted well and seated promptly. Service was spotty, getting drinks seemed to take a long time. Food was average. Service was in abundance to the point that... More

For such a "high end" restaurant I was really not impressed from start to finish. We had made a reservation with a special request but when we arrived at the restaurant, although they had our name down on a scruffy piece of paper, they didn't have a table prepared and ready for us, and the lady at the front of...

One of Sandton and Johannesburg's classiest restaurants. Certainly not cheap in Rands but a bargain for overseas visitors with proper money. Great ambiance and a commendable excess of attentive waiting staff. Significant wine list. Excellent, extensive menu, and the food itself impressed. The only issue was a little more air conditioning was needed on a warm Highveld summer night.

The food here was delicious, I went here with my father and out of town business associates. The food was really great and if you like fine dining it is the place to be at. I would recommend the beef fillet!!! The service we received here was good and the waiters were also good.
