“Great steaks, sleek and sexy ambiance, high prices, overly loud music in dining room”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Had dinner here with a group of 5 on a busy Friday night in April 2013. The whole table ordered tenderloins and they were fantastic. Bill came out to about USD 50 per person including 1 drink each. A little rich in my opinion but good food in a hyper trendy atmosphere isn't easy to fin in Jakarta! My overall summary of comments below:

PROS
- Great steaks - try the tenderloin!
- Good service both in terms of speed and friendliness
- Ultra hip atmosphere with moody lighting and sexy ambiance
- Great location
- Killer bar scene later in evening

CONS
- After 10pm they jam the music in the main dining room at bar level, it's obnoxious when you're trying to have dinner
- Prices were high but probably on par with comparables in Jakarta - this is not a town known for great food

“Flawless”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

I prefer to order drinks and snacks for this place, not the foods. Really cozy and it was the right place to have a romantic dinner with your couple. COOL!

But sometimes, pelayannya kurang ramah. Maybe it was because too many people who came here. But I'll never regret it, and I will come again for sure :D

“Amazing dinner experience”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This place is not for everyone . If you like your food , your wine and great views then be at the Skye bar in Jakarta. As you climb 56 floors in a hign speed lift , you are greeted with warmth and a table close to open area will result I amazing views of Jakarta. Watching thunderstorms at a distance will add to the spectacle. Amazing bar , super service will ensure that you have a nice evening. The wine selection is good , the food choice is decent but somewhat limited.I ordered a paella for lack of choice as I don't eat beef , it was average ,not enough flavours and the rice was passable to be paella. However a great time with friends and a decent experience.

“Awesome view from 56 floors high”
Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

I have eaten at the Skye bar many times and always found the service, food and atmosphere to be very good. The Skye bar is a little pricey but with the proper seating location the view is worth the price. After dinner there is an outdoor bar where people can drink, meet and have a good time.
