    Everything was awesome. Philippe who looked after us was a star. We started with Foursquare 2005 daiquiris which were perfectly balanced. Had to have a second. The starters maguro and Kanilaw we outstanding as were the shrimp cocktail and uni. We loved loved loved the friend chicken and cucumber salad. Kara Kara macarons we divine. The Mille crepe was so nice too ! Outstanding all round. Can’t wait to come come back

    Great service and decor. The food, while interesting and new, was largely unbalanced and our meal did not sit well. We are used to a wide variety of cuisines and flavors, and have had fine Filipino dining before, but the food here this evening was a let down, especially for the cost.

    Well, I’m sure it might’ve been good if it had been open! We arrived, having confirmed our table through OpenTable, only to find that there was a private party at Pao so we could not get in. We were hugely disappointed that we had not been contacted, for which they apologised, saying they had contacted all the clients using seven rooms booking service, but obviously not those who had booked through OpenTable. We were then offered a table at one of their other restaurants, which was good, but it is not the kind of food we had had in mind for that evening for ourselves, and our guests.

    The small plates need to come out faster. We waited 20-30 minutes in between plates. Incredibly slow service. Tuna tartare taco, crab toast, fried chicken were all mediocre for the price. The Short Rib was the best dish by far. Very good! The bluefin tuna nigiri was also good. The uni wasn’t my favorite. It was fishier than the uni I get in San Francisco. I’m chalking this up as a type I’ve never had before because it did look fresh. Food was okay. Service needs to speed things up. Get the short rib if you do go.

    The menu can be daunting in terms of the sheer variety of possibilities. With so many choices, we asked our server Jed to guide us through and it turned Ned out to be a great decision. Pacing and dish selection along with his suggested wine pairings resulted in an excellent evening. So much more to try and a follow-up visit is in our future plans.
