The restaurant is permanently closed and your site still accepts reservations and confirms them too. If i didn't try to call the restaurant directly to reconfirm my booking we would have reached there to find it closed.

You should do a better job at updating your system.

And how was my reservation confirmed anyway. Wouldn't you have checked for availabilities in the first place? Terrible service Open Table.

So I drove 30 minutes from my house to Novikov, and when I reached the valet staff told me it’s closed!!!!!!!! Then why did you accept my reservation at the first place?????? That was beyond disrespectful!!! Never ever going there again

I was having farewell dinner with 3 friends, we are all chefs in dubai. We had looked the menu and the menu choice was nice. We choose thai chicken tacos and king crab avocado salad for the starter. Tacos was mention for 2 pieces but we didnt expect the size was for bites, the service people not explained us that the size was small and we want to sharing it. Taste was too salty for us, the merination is quite good. King crab salad taste was very nice. And we had a main course mix baby chicken miso, duck wth truffle, thai beef pepper and asparagus ginger soy, egg fried rice and kimchi fried rice. I dont know the one who cook not taste the food but all of us taste all food was salty, the taste between egg fried rice and kimchi fried rice no different at all, it was same taste. I like the duck, but the truffle wasnt fresh truffle, and the miso chicken, the taste of miso ver less but to salty, the asparagus, i was looking for the asparagus tip because i like it but i didnt find on our plate. The beef was nice. And im a muslim, i forgot to check our food is content with alcohol, and i was asking one of the service staff, i ask him which one with alcohol and he dont know. When i check the menu the one with alcohol only the chicken. I told him i cant eat with alcohol because im a muslim, and he told me its only to glaze the chicken, only little. For me this is unacceptable, if i said muslim cant eat with alcohol why still saying its find because only little. Even 1 ml of alcohol is still not allowed for a muslim. How could he said its find. I forgot to check his name but hes a bald, hes afrikan, he was incharge to handle my table. I hope you can give a good training to your service staffs, what is allowed or not allowed for several religion, train the staffs about the menu and always test knowledge before you start opening. I was very dissapointed, we didnt enjoy our dish, so we continue to shakespeare for the real dinner.

As always we were very happy with the food and service at Novikov. It’s Grand restaurant! Probably the best most sophisticated Asian fusion food one can have at a venue that is in both Dubai and London.

The food was ok but for this price I'd still recommend to go to Zuma. The athmosphere was too calm, I expected more music and a bar with many people in the back, the restaurant was nearly empty.

We chose from the fresh seafood selection and not from the menu. The quality of the seafood was amazing. The preparation of the food, the service and the whole dining experience were outstanding. Easily the best seafood we have had in Dubai. Really a fantastic meal. The only issue is pricing. We paid over AED 3000 for two. That's expensive!

The service was the worst I can't even compare it to Novikov-London and when I was in Novikov-London it was so crowded their were no empty table and the service was perfect.. not as Dubai we couldn't have our drinks until we were done from our food and all what we ordered is a cola.. even when we remind the waitresses many times and the manager as well.. didn't like the service at all.. I don't know what will happen if the restaurant was crowded.. 👎🏼

Tables are tiny, NOT OK for 5 people! Space between tables is also limited, the waiter kept bumping into my chair over and over again trying to squeez through between the tables. If you order water or wine, they keep the bottle on your already tiny table, not on a seperate bottle holder next to your table. We couldn't even put down 2 sharing starters in the centre of our table. The food was generally good, tasty and well put together!
The waiters encourage over-ordering of food telling guests that what is orderes is not enough, which I find wasteful, shamefully oportunistic and just greedy. 50% of what we ordered was dumped. It is so very obvious that they try to compete with Zuma, the big "asian fusion fine-dining" dog on the block in Dubai, but can't quiet even look up to it :-) Just when it comes to the price, they are not shy to charge the same steep amount for less!
