Really enjoyed our meal there. Food was fantastic, and service matched.
The head chef, came out and spoke to us at the table. He was not only very funny and welcoming, but he also took a great deal of time/pride in helping us choosing the right meal.
From all tables you have a great view of the famous fountain outside.
I can only strongly recommend this lovely place.

We stumbled upon the restaurant quite by accident. I had wanted to visit the Atmos restaurant at the top of the Burj Khalifah but owing to a function it was closed to other customers.
We went to the bar and the lady at the bar insisted we try the very good Italian next door. When the doors opened it was sheer oppulance from begining to end.
We did not have a reservation however we were acknowledged immediately. We were seated in the waiting area and offered snacks and drinks. Shortly after we were seated and our every whim catered for.

Our waiter who also turned out to be the supervisor Mohammed was very knowledgeable with the menu. He gave practical advice when choosing dishes and was not afraid to suggest new items from the menu that we hadn't thought of.

Each course was skilfully created and served with TLC. The chef sent a small cold tomato soup as a welcome. The tastes were arousing and each course compelled you to try the next.

It was my birthday and my dinning partner requested something special on my behalf. The restaurant staff were obliging presenting me with a rose, a small cake and candle and a small gift c/o Armani restaurant.

Would I go back? Without a doubt.
I reccomend this restaurant highly, the staff remained grounded in their service, ensuring customers were always happy. Food tasted delicious and reasonably priced considering the surroundings.

Very good ambiance and design. Music not loud and relaxing. The entry was difficult to find but the stewardess showed us our way.
The waiters were always available for drinks.
A good overall experience for a special event.
I would not rate this experience as perfect or vey good as the average is 3.75. Here are the reasons
1. Failure to xplain each dish when served
2. Extremely salt risotto, when I infomed the waiter about it, there was no aknowledgment at all (a menu of 800aed)
3. My guests ordered a seafood dish on which there was only 2 shrimps
4. Around 11pm, we heard people yelling for about 2mn in the kitchen which almost a fight between 2 members of the restaurant

The only thing i enjoyed in the dinner was the sfera desert that's all.

Dear Me M, Thank you for your review. We very much appreciate your comments regarding your dining experience at Armani/Ristorante. Chef Alessandro I am sure will be thrilled to read the comments regarding our signature desert (Sfera). Andrea and the service team work very hard to ensure all of our guest requirements are accommodated and the service standards that we aspire too are consistently met at all times. It is therefore disappointing to note that your experience was not wholly wonderful. We very much hope to welcome you back in the near future and will strive to ensure that on this occasion we are able to achieve the high standards of service and excellence that we are recognised for. Kind regards Stephen
