Great location and very good service. The food is a little overpriced but the atmosphere and cocktails make up for it.

Food was good... Staff was nice.... Music was awful and so loud it made it difficult to actually enjoy the experience.

We went with the 50% off and was disappointed. It took over 5 minutes to be seated by staff. Food was mediocre, the steak was tough and the salmon was paired with a strange sauce. Only highlight was the salt and pepper squid.

— quite rude when bringing the food out. — didn’t quite understand the art of being discrete. Asked about bringing the cake right next to the birthday girl — the food was okay.. the chicken wings lacked in taste

Waited a long time for service staff to take the orders. We had to ask for all the basics after ordering : bottle of water (arrived after we almost finished our food), napkins, salt and pepper. Fish and chips are industrial kind - very disappointing for the price. Asked if they can adjust the Duck Ravioli to a tomato based one with no cheese and cream, the staff said yes. I even asked her to double check with the chef, if not I can order something else, she just said no problem she will put in the order. It arrived with cream. I returned the dish and the staff came and said I didn't say no cream and her tone is obviously I made a mistake and wasn't happy that I returned the dish. Luckily my husband also heard my order. Anyway, they changed the dish for me but it wasn't a nice experience. Pretty disappointing dining experience especially when we are bringing a group of family visiting us from overseas.

After my request, we got seated outside in a calm spot with a view on VIVID. Thank god, because there was a wedding party inside and that was way to loud!

Food was great everything else was bad, had a reservation and they were letting others get tables first and it was just very unorganized and unprofessional. I can say we did also get our food quickly so that wasnt too bad.
