“Great Looking Lounge Lacks Proper Waiters”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014 via mobile

Our two experiences here were simply below expectations. Both visits our drinks were wrong and the waiting exceptionally long. On St Patrick's Day they had ran out of Irish beer, and the place was dead. It's close to our flat and we like the views, but expect poor service from the waiters.

“Under leveraged”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014 via mobile

The atrium is captivating and the service is very good but the place seriously lacks in people and music. In a nutshell it always feels dead and I have been there a few times. The hilton should find a way to inject some life into it.

“Has potential but very disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

This place could be very nice if you just want a drink, which was what we wanted....
Ordered a glass of wine but this didn't taste right, I know for sure this was not right as the specific wine I ordered I had drank before, this one had been open for days. When I asked about this to the staff they told me the bottle was just opened and didn't seem to know or care about what happens when a bottle is left opened.
Staff customer service was very poor for the 5* place it is supposed to be no alternative or apology was offered.

“Has potential. But disappointed ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

Visited this bar for a drink, very quiet but perfect for just a drink.
Ordered a wine but due to the quietness the wine had blatantly been open for a couple of days. However, the waiter didn't seem to know or care about it. Such a shame for a place with a lot of potential.
