    The food desires to be much better. Extremely overpriced for what you get. Service was very good. The space is beautiful. I would suggest to find a better cook. Not going back

    If the main chef is not there the food is not the same. Always ask if the woman chef is on duty.

    Food is outstanding! Would have given 5 stars if service were better. Server checked on table once during the entire meal even though she had no other tables. For a restaurant that mandates 20% gratuity, better service is expected. Please take time to train your staff. It's understandable that staff may have limited ability to communicate in English, but more of an attempt to meet minimum standards of service is desperately needed. We spent $300 on a meal for 3 people, and the absent service cost the business (and server) an opportunity to make more money because we each had only one drink.

    The food is excellent! Not one item disappointed anyone. We were a large group and the food came out at a great pace as we shared many, many varied selections. The staff was fantastic, personable and attentive. It is pricey, but well worth it! The ambiance is beautiful and the artwork that is hung up is available for purchase!

    We had a great evening here for dinner during the boat show weekend at end of Oct2022. Staff were all dressed in the same red jumpsuit Halloween costume referencing some show that we were unfamiliar with, but we still appreciated the effort and effect. There was a performer in the other area singing mostly 80s tunes while playing a keyboard that was perhaps fun for the people in there; for us it just meant lively, but not too loud music from across the hall. The restaurant was spacious and décor was modern (eastern european chic?). We were inside, but there is also a large outdoor seating area that looked to have decent breeze. They had a nice menu of Georgian and international food and, judging from their accents and language when speaking to each other, I think most people on the floor were Georgians. Everything we had was well prepared, well presented, and very tasty. Tried a few dishes we had never heard of or thought of - presumeably Georgian staples. A few Georgian wines on the extensive list, as well as Lithuanian draft beer (Svyturys Ekstra) on tap. Prices were appropriate. Tip was included in bill. 2 people for full evening, apps + dinner with $60 wine, a few beers, and tip was under $200 total. All in all, a nice evening dinner out.

    Absolutely, best restaurant in Fort Lauderdale: best food, best service (Larissa was most caring and genuine waitress ever), modern ambiance, they even have live music. We will be back many times with friends and already told everyone we know about this place. Hidden gem, upscale but not pretentious.

    Delicious food! Especially Khachapuri and Khinkali. Cozy inside and outside seating. Great selection of wine and cocktails. Service is timely and friendly. The only negative, in my opinion, is the automatic gratuity charge added to the bill!

    Experienced immediate discrimination, hostess questioned our server about our ability to afford the food and towards the end many employees gathered around the entrance door prior to the check being brought. Food was beautiful but my palate could not acclimate. Server was nice and patient. I spent over $300 and will never return. I guess they are not accustomed to Black Americans being able to afford and relish the finer things of life.

    The restaurant is beautifully decorated and has a club vibe. Comfy chairs and couches for dining were interesting, but if you are short in height like myself, you have to sit forward to reach the table. Service was excellent and the foods we tried delicious! My favorite being the eggplant rolls. The only negative thing I have to say is the music volume is WAY TOO LOUD! we asked to turn it down, but that was useless. Very hard to have conversations and the music wasn’t dinner appropriate anyways. Instead of being soft in the background, it was techno and very loud. I don’t mind the techno, just the volume. I would definitely recommend trying this restaurant. It is expensive, but most of the items we tried were worth the price.

    Over expensive. Also there’s a catch with tips: they charge you “service charge” but that isn’t a tip so if you want to reward your server you have to add more money

    The food was fabulous! We ordered three unfamiliar dishes and loved them all, especially the eggplant rolls, also a European cheese platter which was a little boring but good. The server could've been more helpful, but possibly a language barrier. Ambience was warm and inviting, lots of comfy chairs and couches. We will definitely go back. Only sour note was the valet parking which cost $15, next time we will come earlier and look for a spot on the street a little ways away.

    RESTAURANT INSIDE A NIGHT CLUB. EXTREMELY LOUD MUSIC. 20% UNWARRANTED FORCED TIP. We were so excited to try new a cuisine, but ended up very disappointed with this restaurant. They have a live one man 'band' blasting music throughout the restaurant. We asked the waiter 3 times to please ask for the singer to be lower the volume. He would lower it for 60 seconds and raise it right back, killing any hopes for a romantic dinner, or having a conversation with partner/friends. Worst part was seeing a 20% forced tip on the bill. This is a red flag that guests are not happy and with the service and patrons leaving low tips, triggering the restaurant to force the high 20% tip. While I normally leave 20%+ tips when the service is good, anything over 18% for a FORCED tip in an average restaurant is too high in my opinion. A horrible and expensive overall experience. Would not recommend this restaurant presently.

    I usually don’t write reviews but OMG. Food was amazing, service excellent! I am from Georgia myself and I do know how Georgian food should taste. Tried many options of Georgian cuisine before in USA in LA, Miami and New York and this restaurant is by far the best so far. Not to mention ambience is like topnotch steakhouse. I will recommend this place to all friends. Can’t wait to go back
