    Such amazing food and drink. Botanist did not disappoint with creative and delicious cocktails. All appetizers and mains were well balanced and delicious. Our server was also very appropriately engaging, enough to facilitate decisions to enhance our dining experience and build rapport, but also gave our party space to enjoy. Well done Botanist!

    Two of my colleagues and I went to the Botanist for our Christmas "team dinner". From arrival, the service was excellent. The hostess and the server were very attentive. Our server was so lovely, we did not get her name but she was very knowledgeable about the entire menu, and recommended fantastic cocktails and desserts. We had the beet salad to share (so tasty), and three different mains which we all really enjoyed. The food was cooked to perfection and the flavours really stood out. We were so impressed by this restaurant and will definitely be back. The price point means that it is definitely a novelty unless you are making big bucks, but it is so worth it for an occassional treat. Would highly recommend.

    High prices for an uneven offering. Cocktails were enjoyable, pasta was very good. Potatoes were tasteless and mushy, lamb was poorly cooked. Service was attentive but somehow not relaxing. Perhaps it’s a matter of personal preference, but the menus offered too much fluff (hells and foams) and not enough substance (solid balanced satisfying food).

    I’ve been dreaming about the dry aged duck since I first had it earlier this year. I visited botanist last night and the duck still held up!! Hands down the best duck ever. I also had the lamb rack as an appetiser and it was incredibly good!

    Lived up to the hype! From start to finish our experience was perfection. We had Chris taking care of us and we were in very good hands. He completely made the experience for us. Chris was so helpful with drinks and food. I am so upset I don’t remember the name of our sommelier, he was wonderful and totally went above and beyond. I was worried the drinks would be too floral for me, however, I found them to all be very mild when it came to the floral notes. The food was everything you could want in a contemporary fine dining restaurant. Every bite we had was exquisite. Nothing was out of place of missing. Our table enjoyed the Wagyu Carpaccio, Charred Octopus, seared scallops to start and the duck, steak and lamb as our entrees. Not one of us had any issues with our meals. The bread and butter were also delicious, I will definitely be driving out to that bakery to get some of the bread for our home. I would highly recommend for any of your special occasions or really any occasion.

    The duck breast (crispy but medium rare on the inside) and rack of lamb was so good, but the wine (from South Africa Cab Sav 2019) was not worth the $110. If you’re going to go, bring your own aged wine and just let them charge a corking fee. The place has nice ambiance but it was loud so had to talk over each other!

    We had a round table in the middle of dining area so that affected ambience. Live piano was a nice touch and not too loud or overpowering for hum across the floor. Service was thoughtful, attentive, and knowledgeable. They brought us champagne to celebrate our anniversary. The duck was divine with an incredible mole and black bean purée. The octopus was drenched in an overpowering sauce. The tagliatelle with mushroom was delish! The cocktails were well balanced and wine selection was standard.

    The saying is true when they say you get what you pay for. The “let us take it from here” tasting menu is phenomenal and never disappoints. The sommelier is engaging and ready to answer any questions. He was even so kind to show and explain when a wine has turned. His passion toward wine made our evening that much more special. The cocktails are exquisite. Our server was thoughtful and attentive. We are so grateful for such a lovely experience! We cannot wait to come back! Thank you!

    Nice concept but the food was trying too hard and missed the mark. Flavours were indistinguishable. Service could have been better (waiter took away drink before we were finished and did not check up on us after we got the main course). Would not go back for the price. The ambiance was nice however.

    Incredible experience. We opted for the Leave It To Us chefs selection and we’re delighted by real culinary masterpieces. Our favourites were the squid and persimmon and the white chocolate goat cheese dessert. The potato glass and candy cap mushroom marshmallow were outstanding and mysterious. We agreed we were surprised the Botanist didn’t receive a Michelin star!

    Me and my two companions had the tasting menu with wine pairings, all courses being chosen by the chef subject to any likes or dislikes. The food was absolutely stunning in taste, plating and originality. Some of the dishes were plant based, and we gave no thought to any animal protein whatsoever as we ate them. The only concern I had was that at $70 per person for the accompanying wine, that came to $210 which probably was a little overpriced for the amount of wine served, albeit wines of excellent character. I would still order the wine pairings again, but wanted to be honest about the pricing.

    An AMAZING dining experience. The restaurant hit all the right notes - right from the greeting at the entrance. Ambiance was great - lively but not too noisy. The service was impeccable - Thanks to Brandon for his attention. The food was well made and presented elegantly. Cocktails are among the best in the city - quite unique. It’s clearly evident that the kitchen staff and bar staff take care and pride in their creations. Overall an amazing dining experience - will be back very soon. To the entire Botanist team - please keep up the good work.

    Very poor service. Food was disappointing. Things seem to have declined since I came a year ago for brunch. I love Fife bread too, but don't think it worked with the beef tartare or on the croque madame. Too crunchy. Beef tartare wasn't seasoned. A waffle potato chips would have worked better and made up for the lack of seasoning on the beef/egg. The croque madame needed cheese ontop and was minimal on any bechemel/hollandaise. The ham was thin/sandwich ham. Parmesean didn't work wih the roasted potatoes. Server forgot our sparkling wine when we told him we wanted the sparkling to start and coffee (not substitute). We had to remind him and then he still didnt bring it. During the end of our breakfast he then asked if we still wanted it! Didn't check on us at all during the meal and spilled water while pouring and didn't clean it. Shockingly bad service for a restaurant of this level.

    I made the reservation for my wife's birthday but unfortunately they do not allow us to bring our birthday cake to the restaurant and can't give any other options instead. OK, if it is the rule we can accept that. The ridiculous thing is that when we arrived the restaurant the receptionist ask who is the birthday girl and mark it on the note, but till the end of the meal we didn't receive anything special for the birthday girl. Neither a small cake or card. So I'm just curious if you can't do anything for the birthday why you asked for that? Anyway the appetize is not bad but the main couse is so-so, not worth the price, will not come again.
