“Sjalotte at Floris Suites”
Reviewed May 20, 2008

Very modern and european feel, with a terrific menu. Service was gentile and well-intentioned, but lacking in execution. I ordered a special selection of three wines by the glass, and the servers could not coordinate delivering the appropriate wine with the right course. Pretty basic stuff at this price range.

Very much enjoyed the food, but management is as arrogant as I had read previously. I had made a reservation well in advance, and they were completely unconcerned that they had lost it. They tried sitting us at an entirely unacceptable table, and were clearly bothered that we asked to sit elsewhere.

As the saying goes, a customer is never an interruption of your job, they're the REASON for your job. We won't return, even though we stay right across the street at the Hilton, until we hear they've embraced Hospitality 101.

“chef laks of creativity”
Reviewed May 14, 2008

Never order the 6 course menu. The chef lacks of creativity. I also ordered the wine arrangement. 1st course salad with a shrimp + white wine. 2nd salad + one asparagus + white wine (welmoed) not the greatest. 3rd course salad with tuna + white wine. 4th course trekvis (sort of cod) + salad and again a white wine. Than they came with the 5th course which was a cheese platter. Being a meet eater and a red wine lover I asked the chef how he though about a little piece of meat. we got a small piece of filet mignon which was terrible. Anyway not the best place in town .

“A real suprise, behind a...”
Reviewed March 23, 2008

A real suprise, behind a anonymous brickwall and a sign that could have belong to any greek tavern is a great restaurant that would be close to a michelin star. Modern design and a tropical garden is the surroundings for a gourmet meal combined with great wines and the price doesn't scare anyone.
