The place has a very cool vibe, upscale and chic. The food was good but the service was disappointing. The server was nicer and super friendly but we were sitting for over a half hour before our drinks came out - our appetizer was on the table before our drinks. Then she only asked if one person wanted a second drink, we had to call her back to table so the rest of us could get more. And then they had issues w the bill. We didn’t complain, just rolled w it but we had 2 different managers come up to apologize for delays and confusion. From LEY we just expect they would have their service together.

Delighted to have this classic re-open in the Gold Coast. Food, service, atmosphere could not have been better. Wine list is outstanding, especially if you are a Burgundy lover. The room is beautifully decorated; it feels swanky but not stuffy. The food is absolutely spectacular!

Wonderful restaurant. Wonderful waitress. Very good wine. Food portions were very small for price though.

I decided to take myself out for lunch on Valentine's day, and I chose Booth One because of a special offer I received in my email. I started out with a cocktail in the bar: I got the Burt Reynolds, which the bartender told me was their take on the Old Fashioned. It was $14 but worth every dollar! It was a BIG drink; not one of those little dainty ones you get at some trendy cocktail bars. Anyway, the drink was fantastic, made with bourbon and some kind of smoky aperitif. I told a friend about it and he said, "Smokey and the Bandit!" I guess so! Oh, and the bartender was very attentive. In fact, everyone at the restaurant was very attentive and friendly. It made me feel comfortable, being a single diner and all.

For lunch I ordered a Caesar Salad, and the Prime Cheeseburger Twins with blue cheese. Both were excellent. For dessert I had a Banana Banshee cocktail--it tasted like a banana milkshake! (I wanted the chocolate coconut cake, but I was too full to eat something that heavy, but it sounds divine.) Then after I was done, the waiter brought me, since it was Valentine's Day, a cellophane bag with two heart-shaped macarons! All in all it was a very nice experience.

What's not to love when friends can share scrambled eggs with black truffle, lobster risotto, roasted chicken with frites and the evening special of beef stew with winter vegetables and a side of buttery noodles?! The lobster risotto was divine! And no skimping on the wine pour.

I do request they change up the music. The music did not match the vibe of the room and menu.

Jacob was a fabulous server. I did’t want a salad, but there wasn’t much more for me to eat as most other foods sounded too rich. I did order salmon bites which was very good, but was still hungry. I Then ordered the Truffle scrambled eggs and split it with my friend. Good, not great and way too rich. Lettuce Entertain You Could do a much better job.
The table was sterile. No flowers in a bud vase even, and no salt and pepper. I was very disappointed in my lunch. My friend was disappointed as well.

Went here for a birthday. The room is very pretty with banquettes. The bar has delicious cocktails and nice wines by the glass. The wine list here is really fun and had some really cool wines, including a really great selection of whites as well as Spanish wines.

Excellent food. Excellent service. Really cool vibe. We were there during restaurant week and the restaurant week menu was an incredible value. We will definitely be back.
