“Good food at a fair price...”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

The layout was well done and staff attentive. However, the food wasn't anything truly remarkable. However, the prices were in line with what would be appropriate based on the quality. All in all a reasonable place if your staying at the Hilton and don't want to venture outside.

“Terrible! Cold out of control and wait 50 minutes to eat anything!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

I was tonight in Flare, it will be a nightmare experiences!
The cold air conditioning was out of control, we wait 50 minutes for a simple snow fish.
The waiters move constantly apologizing but without bringing anything to the table!
Pay just for interior design but without eating anything is not 'possible!
Absolute disappointment! Dont try it!!!
But where are the quality controls' of Hilton Hotels?
Trash....

“Disappointed”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

My initial reaction on entrance was dark and cold, freezing cold. I like air con but when you are shivering throughout your meal? This also made the food cold with 5 minutes of it been on the table.
One plus point is the fabulous personalized service, unfortunately that is the only one I've got.
More bread and dips are needed variety of bread would be nice also. We opted for the set menu, the snowfish and crab appetizer was pretty bland and a little chewy. The lobster bisque was delicious (not the best I've had) but it was served in a cold bowl from jug at the table which instantly chilled the soup. The prawn Caesar salad was the tastiest dish but change the serving bowls! Using a knife and fork in a deep Chinese noodle soup bowl is very tedious and undignified. Main course was strip loin, slightly overcooked and very salty. Desert was tiramisu, which was dry and seemed like it had been defrosted.
Overall for the money you are spending it is massively overrated. There is better quality food available in Pattaya in a 5* environment at lower prices.
Unfortunately we won't be back.

“Not Good”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

"Fine Dining" In price only.
The food was very bland and really not good
The staff tried but were really lacking in their knowledge of both the food and wine the whole service was rushed we were in and out within under an hour.
Fussy Diner has said most things to the point and I can agree to all.
The lighting is ridiculous invest in a minors helmet before you go to read the menu.
You can not say the decor is good, its black and with the lighting pitch black, music was not background and at times far too loud big band style.
Someone needs too note the comments as the answer to most of their problems have been resolved right here in these reviews.
I would suggest that the reason also that the food is not great is no customers so freshness maybe a problem , chicken and egg scenario.
Shame not a good experience at all and at 10,000B for 3 person with one bottle of wine Gavi @ 3900B, 3 very bland starters (one a salad), main a dry salmon steak, a tough strip loin, another steak can not remember which you would for the money expect better.
Good Bread though which was probably the only plus point.
Give it a miss would be my advice.
