    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

    Most food items were good. Lamb kebab grossly overdone. One of the appetizers did not show on the table, but did show on the bill. 18 % gratuity automatically added to the bill, but we were not informed. And electronic terminal asking for a tip (again) while paying.

    Restaurant is a mix of Georgian and American cuisine, if you want to experience something new and extraordinary go to this restaurant, staff was on point and food was delicious. They have their own winery and wines made with 8000 years old traditions, out of this world. You got to try khinkali and ajaruli Khachapuri.

    Not worth the trip. So many better places on Las Olas. This cuisine is delicious, however they can’t prepare it properly. The soup Harcho lacked any flavor or spices, the rice was over cooked. The Hachappuri Ajarskiy came to the table with a tablespoon of butter sitting on it- waiting to melt. But the bread wasn’t hot enough, it didn’t melt properly. The veal entree was a taragon nightmare! Overall, for Georgian cuisine, drive to Sunny Isles. Those who moved from Brooklyn NY and try this place will be very disappointed. Locals may enjoy as they don’t know true Georgian food.
