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.

Service was horrendous. Waitress made us feel like a burden rather than valued guests. Too many restaurant staff seem to have forgotten that if it wasn’t for the customers their job wouldn’t exist. Seriously disappointed.

Atmosphere was rated 6 as the table we sat at constantly had the queue of other guests lining up to pay standing right next to our table and bumping into us.
