    Usually I love Biltong but last night was underwhelming. The food and drinks were tasty as usual but the service was worse than usual and very slow. Example: We ordered the biltong sampler which (despite having it on the menu) did not include the dried sausage. Our waitress did not tell us that it was no longer included until after we asked about. (Very bad form) Also, it took almost 30 minutes to get it which seems crazy for an appetizer that simply needs to be cut and placed on a platter. Example: Several items had increased price from what was listed on the menu and we did not find out until the check arrived. Once again, a great disappointment in service. I understand prices change and still think the price is fine, but for no one to tell us about it and not be reflected on the menu is unacceptable. We did not plan to be there over three hours but it took so long for each thing to arrive that we were there much longer than expected and planned. I will eventually go back because we have always loved Biltong but it may be a while to see if they can get these issues worked out. And honestly, most of the issues could have easily been resolved if our waitress had communicated with us better.

    We had a great time here! It was nicely decorated for the holidays. The food was delicious and the drinks were really good. The service was great except they were short staffed. Behind the bar and the wait staff.. apparently they've been short staffed a while. But they did do the best they could and it was appreciated. While everything tasted great, expect a wait for drinks/food to come out.

    They charge a 25% split check fee and don’t tell you. The service was slow as the food was mediocre at best. Wouldn’t go back.

    Favorite bar in the city. Drinks are always good. Service was not on par for a Saturday night. Reservations was not honored until 30mins pass my reserved party’s time. Server was busy the whole night, hard to cash out / pay out me tabs at the end.

    Manager was very rude to our group as we tried to deal with a very simple cocktail issue. What could’ve been solved by making a new drink in a timely manor and with kindness, turned into a 20 minute wait for a drink and a very disappointing reaction from the management staff. As once regulars, we will sadly not make this one of our stops for dinner after the way we were treated.

    VERY slow service to get drinks at the bar and from the server at the table. We ordered at the bar, took over 10 mins for a beer and an old fashioned. No other bar guests and only one other table in the building. At the table, the server took our app order and never came back. We had to get up to find someone to take our order.

    I went with my mom for dinner and drinks and it was great overall! I got the See You Space Cowboy and she got the Suddenly Last Summer and both were delicious. Their Rose is fresh and light as well. The cauliflower was amazing and the meat and cheese board never disappoints. I always enjoy my time at Biltong!

    My party visited the bar about 30min before happy hour ended on a Thursday evening. We were able to take advantage of a few of the specials. The Nirvana shot, pepperoni pizza, and BB Jr. burger were all delicious. We also had the 'Unf*ck Your Day' frozen cocktail, which was perfectly flavored and strong! The ambiance was a vibe, but the DJ could've been better. The waiters, servers, and batenders were awesome.

    We went for a friends birthday. I noted this on the booking but nothing was mentioned upon arriving about this celebration or done to acknowledge it. Food and drinks were good, but it took over 15 mins for our drinks to arrive.
