“Good Valentine Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

i booked a dinner for valentines , i confirmed my booking two days in advance, when we arrived there , to my surprise my name was not on the list, however they told us to wait on a table in the cigar lounge and gave us our welcome driks while they sorted the issue out, and 5 minutes later a waitress came and escorted us to our table , gave my wife a red rose and chocolate. we then order our main courses accourding to some suggestions from the waiter , i had the pan seared angus beef stake , while my wife has the fresh spagetti with mixed sauce. both dishes were delisciouse but there was nothing really special about the spaghetti , while the steak on the other hand was perfect , it came with asparguas and mashed potatos which were cooked perfectly. after we finished our dinner we headed upstairs to the cigar loung and ordered some white wine and beer. the visit lasted 3 and a half hours while the singer sang in the background on and off . time passed quickly and it was a nice valantine dinner that my wife enjoyed. you do feel that the restuarant is fancy and good for business lunches/dinners and special occasions, keep in mind it is a bit on the pricey side.

“BiCE tricked us into believing there was a new year party in their restaurant”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

BICE bahrain ...what a disgrace for such a franchise. We are regular 5+ star restaurant seekers .. This new year eve we decided we'll try BICE as we had dined the before. When we called they asked us to pay in advance as ALL TABLES ARE FULL. They said there will be a DJ and lots more. We paid US$1000 for all of us and reached there by 10 pm to find the place empty and no DJ. Instead of apologizing and telling us there is no one coming, they continued their lie till 11:45 pm. The only guests were paying guests for dinner, who left by that time. At midnight they pulled a wire from a private party upstairs for music. Although we didn't have dinner they refused to admit their scam and have been avoiding us since. For a mere US$1000 they were ready to trick us into believing there was a grand party. Our guests were from Oman who have come to bahrain just for new year eve to celebrate. We are extremely disappointed with managements actions and will take action until they admit their fault and refund us for their scam.

“Ok but not quite like NYC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Good place for business lunch. Even when there are a lot of people around, it doesn't feel noisy ... must be the acoustics. The food is OK but not as good as the ones in NYC. Overall, though, it was OK especially for dinner.

“A Total Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

My husband and I visited Bice last night in celebration of my birthday. As soon as we walked through the door we were greeted by name by the hostess and shown to our table. We were given a menu and a wine list. We chose our wine from quite an extensive list, ordered our appetizer, soup, and entree. The meal was paced beautifully, we actually spent 2 hours from start to finish and had the opportunity to savor the meal and the moment. The wait staff was attentive without being intrusive. The decor is tasteful. Every item we ordered was beautifully presented and very tasty. The minestrone soup was wonderful, the veal, beef and spinach ravioli in mushroom sauce was beyond words. A wonderful was to spend a special occasion or an evening out.
