Excelente servicio, alimentos de muy alta calidad y una vista increíble, muy comodo, muy limpio.

Gran atención del mesero y excelentes recomendaciones para hacer de la cena muy amena y sin duda invita a volver la próxima vez que visite la Ciudad de México.

Definitivamente un lugar para pasar una increíble noche, el servicio es excelente de todas las personas del lugar, la comida es un estilo diferente pero que sin duda alguna es inigualable, los postres son la mejor parte de todas la tarta de pera con helado de vainilla es simplemente extraordinario.

El restaurante destaca por sus instalaciones, la vista al lago es muy bonita, el ambiente tranquilo, discreto y cómodo se prestan para una cena romántica. Lo mejor es la atención del personal, la comida es rica y el vino exquisito.
El costo aunque es elevado lo vale por la experiencia.

This was a place we had been looking forward to but reality did not live up to expectations. We ordered champagne which fizzed on popping the cork due to it being warm. The waiter then proceeded to put salt in the ice bucket & swirl the bottle round in it by which time we thought we were in faulty towers. There was a draught coming from an open door which we kept on having to ask them to close. The food menu was pretty basic however I had salmon for main which was done nicely, my partner had oxtail tacos which I can only describe as cat food. We chose to leave a small cash tip as we felt apt & the waiter felt it necessary to let us know this was not even 10%. Maybe this was just a bad experience but felt it was very empty for a Friday night.

El restaurante es increíble, el lugar tiene una atmósfera de tranquilidad, una vista fascinante, una delicada decoración y un excelente servicio. Sin embargo el sazón de la comida, en especial de los desayunos me dejó muy decepcionada, puedes obtener comida con mejor sabor y precio en cualquier otro restaurante

Fue una buena experiencia, aunque pondría mucho más énfasis en el servicio ya que aunque es bufete te asignan un mesero, que en mi caso no fue el más proactivo. Por otro lado, la comida es excelente, el ambiente de 10. Lo único que observé es que a un cumpleañero le llevaron un mini pastelito y a mí festejada no, aunque en la reservación se especificó.

Nos encantó la arquitectura, a la carta le hace falta una revisión por un experto, nuestros platillos estuvieron deliciosos, pero les hizo falta suavidad en las texturas, el ambiente era algo ruidoso al principio, se escuchaba la música ambiente, pero también el ruido extra, no tengo idea de cómo se pueda minimizar algo así, debe existir personas que se encarguen de eso, en cuanto al diseño o no sé, la verdad esas son las observaciones que platicamos, la pasamos increíble y regresaríamos.
