It's definitely very aesthetically pleasing and has a very good vibe. And great location. The crowd there were relatively mature. Wish it opened much later.

I have eaten at Signature many times, and when I return to Johannesburg I make a point of allocating one night to visit again. The food and service don't disappoint, but it's not cheap. It's become more expensive even by European standards, however. It still is cheap when compared to what London or Paris has to offer at the same... More

The food was amazing. I like the wide variety from seafood to quail to game meat. It's got a good vibe and the food was very tasty.

Food well presented, tasty and waitrons very knowledgeable. Extensive wine list, including a good variety of foreign as well as local. Only down side wine prices for local wines extremely high...

This restaurant came across as being very upper class and warm but the waiters are really arrogant and the food we ordered was not worth the price we paid for it.

Restaurant touts itself as a fine dining restaurant. Located in a mall I was skeptical at first, but the atmosphere once inside is decidedly fine dining. The range of wines are extraordinary with wines ranging from R150 to R9000 a bottle. The starters range from R90 to R150 anf main courses from R180 to R600 for the platters. The starters... More

After more than a year we came back and were welcomed as if we would come here three times a week. Everybody recognized us. The food was as perfect as always, even special requests were not a problem. Thank you very much for your hospitality

Food was brilliant (worth the price), great selection of wine and waiters were best I have seen in a long time. Was there on a Friday night, had a very romantic/elegant feel with soft live music in the background.
