Reviewed October 6, 2012

yes, their food is good, but i would say it is not so drastically different that they over charge. the music and band is okay, depends if you are in the mood for live music or not. the service - well its okay, a bit slow or non existent. no1 really bothers you till you call for them - which is good if you are a couple but not if you are with friends or others :)

Hi Purvi,
Thank you for your feedback. Am glad that you are liked the food and found the place suitable for couples. the music is not loud because we do not wish to disturb the neighborhood and had several request even now on softer music.
However, am concerned that you felt that food was overpriced. Would be keen to understand what you ordered and felt was too expensive. This will enable our team to get an insight and take measures. We value our guests feedback and would be delighted to learn from you. Please do email me at sartajbedi at outoftheblue.in or reply at this forum.

“Good ambiance but Bad service”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

The place has really good ambiance, live music performance was good too. Food is alright. The ceaser salad was the best in India of all the places I have tried ever. But the bannoffee was the worst ever (and I am only comparing it with M&S Bannoffee pie).
The worst part was service. Nobody served the food in our plate. At first I asked one of the waiter to serve it. Again with main course they just put the food on our table and went off. At first we assumed that probably that is the way of restaurant, only to find out later that all other tables were being served properly. They didnt even bother to clear crouton from our appetizer on our table for long time even after they had taken away our plates of main course (though the crouton was dropped by their waiter the first time we had asked him to serve the food).
Last but not least, we had observed people on other tables filling up feedback forms, we were not given one either. On asking them the waiter pretended that he had forgotten to give us one. Now my wild guess about all this unfair treatment is the difference between my clothing and that on other tables, but I am not sure. Overall I only observed that there was a certain amount of coldness to the service provided to us for whatever reason. And though I liked the live music a lot, I would probably think twice before recommending this place to anyone else.

Dear Mr Saurabh,
Thank you for feedback and continued patronage. Our Cheese fondue are popular and four cheese fondue has been quite a favourite. Have you tried our Peanut butter chocolate fondue? Do try this on your next visit. We would like to learn from you as to what you think of our other food offering and where we could improve.
Thank you again.

“Cheese fondue :)”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

The pasta and the fondue were simply amazing. The ambiance is nice except for the Mumbai humidity. Have the simple cheese fondue, don't go in for the special ones!

Dear Ms Meenakshi,
Thank you for your feedback. Did you goto our Pune outlet at Shivaji Nagar. Imagine you had our famous Crack Pepper Cheese Fondue. It was name by a guest in Mumbai and is amongst our more popular fondues. Can I tempt you try our four cheese fondue? It has a blend of four premium cheese like asiagio, provolone and has a unique flavour. For dessert we have peanut butter chocolate fondue and dark chocolate fondue. these dessert fondue are with premium international chocolates.
