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.

Absolutely outstanding cocktails, and the food was very good. Our service was excellent until the end of our meal where the server disappeared for 40 minutes...guess he got busy/overwhelmed?

Overall a great spot to meet up, and I'll be back.

Love this restaurant! The food and drinks are excellent and the staff is attentive and knowledgeable.
My only complaint is that every time I've eaten there, the wait is way too long from the time we're seated until our server first appears.

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.

This was our second visit to Biltong, our first was not so good and we wanted to try again. So glad we did! The food was once again excellent, creative and very tasty. The options are limited but so far they’ve all been great. I had the fried chicken sandwich, spicy but tasty! My husband had the burger, cooked perfectly and delicious. The fries... you can’t stop eating them. We started with the mussels and we both decided they were the best dish of the night. Next time I will get them as my entree. This time the service was excellent. Overall a great evening.

Terrible service. We went early on Saturday night when the dining room was empty except for us and one other table and the bar was full. It took far too long for anyone to come to our table to take our drink order. Getting her back to take our food order was another long wait. On a positive note, the food is outstanding. Which is a good thing because the server did not come back to check on us to see if everything was ok or if we needed anything. Our glasses also sat empty.

The worst service I’ve ever experienced. Sat for 3.5 hours and took an hour and a half to receive our first drink and another hour and a half to receive our second drink. Took 1 hour for the server to take our food order and 2.5 hours before we received our order. The server literally only visited our table a total of 3 times. Someone else dropped the food off and I had to tab out at the bar because the server was nowhere to be found after she took our order. First and last time I’m ever going there.
