“The worst service-1 hour waiting for the starters-1 hour for the bill”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

We went yesterday to this "hot-Spot" for dinner and this place was the worst. At the beginning, we were waiting about 30 minutes to get the attention of our waiter. We asked 3 times to get the table fixed and nobody ever came. When we asked for the special offer of 1 starter + 1 main for 25 dollars from Sunday to Wednesday, she tried not to understand what we were asking for. After one hour we got our starter. The beverages never came until we asked for and she brought the beer without glass like we were in a pub. Main dishes do not arrive at the same time. After we finished, getting the bill and pay took us 1 hour more. We were 7 and she was charging us 63 dollars of water (more than 1 liter per person-around 10 bottles) when the truth was that we had drunk 4. In general, I do not recommend this place. The service was the worst. The food was nothing exciting. Many "showing-off" and dirty old man as guests.

“Special menu during the Lumiere festival”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

We were planning to have a normal business dinner here but it turned out that they had a special evening with guest chef here. There was only one selection for the menu this evening: eight dishes "with or without the recommended wines". The food was superb, three food/wine combinations were Michelin level, the rest was "just" very good.

Although this visit was maybe not giving a right picture of the kitchen due to visiting Chef, I would recommend this place just because of the staff- check it yourself and you will know what I´m talking about. Don´t take a jealous type of girlfriend with you..

“Not bad.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

Cellings are low, kinda stuffy, music has too much top 40. On top of that the DJ played 30 seconds of each song; it was very annoying.

“Very Deceiving!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Looks nice on the surface, but the bar stools were thread bare and worn out and the drinks were WAY over-priced! Seriously? $14 for a martini size Margarita?
