“Afternoon Tea”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

We took afternoon tea and thorough enjoyed the great location and superb terrace. The food quality was adequate (the normal cakes and scones) but the low points are slow, inattentive and indifferent service.

“Amazing view”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

If you are in Hong Kong then I would definitely recommend taking some time out in the late afternoon/early evening to have a drink (or two) on the terrace bar at Sevva.

From up there you have a great view of the harbour and can also watch Hong Kong's skyline transition from day into night.

The drinks aren't cheap (bring your wallet!) but the view is worth splashing out for.

Great outdoor terrace with good views. Nice cocktails but expensive. Surly staff. Full of ex pat business types.

“Double Disappointment”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

We went to Sevva on two separate occasions and left disappointed both times. My husband and I love to go to rooftop bars with a view to enjoy our destinations from a different perspective so Sevva was on our list. The first time we went we emerged from the lift and were walking towards the terrace when we were loudly run down by one of the hostesses saying we could not go in as my husband was wearing shorts and they were not permitted to be worn in Sevva. I might add his shorts were extremely long and were down to mid-calf - not unlike my capri pants which didn't seem to offend - but we respected their rules and said we would return another day.
A few days later we happily returned, with my husband dutifully wearing long pants and a collared dress shirt ( just to be sure). The hostess asked why were there and we said we wanted a drink on the terrace. She said that as it was 1.30 we could not just have a drink as it was lunch service. Foiled again! GRRR!! ( I might add that there weren't many people in there at the time, probably due to the stringent rules).
We were made to feel insignificant and that our presence was an inconvenience by the snooty attitude of the front-of-house staff and as a result vowed to NEVVA go back to Sevva!
