The ambiance and food were outstanding. This is definitely a top restaurant for intimate dates for you and your significant other.

Went here for New Years had one of the best experiences! Ken made sure to make our night even more enjoyable by placing us to a better table when asked for. The service and food were both outstanding!

We normally love going to Cite. The food and service are usually excellent and you can't beat the views. Unfortunately, they fell short for New Year's Eve which was very disappointing. We got our second course of the tasting menu before we could even eat the first one. The subsequent courses came as soon as the last bite of the previous one was consumed. My husband was brought a repeat of the third course instead of his chosen item for the fourth course. Amir did quickly rectify this error, though. Overall, we felt like we were being rushed through the evening. Amir was one of the bright spots for the evening. He was his usual kind and attentive self in spite of being very busy.

I made a reservation for 6 seats. I was hoping that it would give us a memorable experience for New Year’s Eve, but sadly it didn’t.

It took a while before we were assisted, our orders were taken approximately 30 mins after being seated. The staff were friendly but they were not keen to the details of our order, they came inaccurately.

The manager, kept coming to our table to ask how everything was doing, it was counterproductive. His jokes and approach were annoying and misplaced to my perceived expectations of the place.

The pacing of the course meal was so slow, and the food was very poor, especially the lobster that felt like rubber. We unanimously wanted just to leave and not finish the whole course but we loved the filet mignon- that’s the one thing we liked, plus the picturesque view of the city.The food completely lacked the wow factor, not worth for the price.

In their website we left a note saying that our reservation was for a celebration, but it was not acknowledged, never a single word or even a treat.

Overall, poor service, and inferior culinary experience.

This place is only good for taking pictures.

Food was outstanding including lobster tail,steak, and Australian barramundi. Great view, service and setting. However, way overpriced for a 3 course pre fixe menu even for new years eve. Just go on a regular day.

The food is delicious and you can have an amazing view of the city but the service is not what I expected, I think they have to improve that point.

restaurant locates on the 70th floor. it has 360 degrees city view. their food is ok, nothing super special. service is usually pretty slow. even then they are not super busy. but, anyway, worth to visit...

Aside from not liking oysters, the whole experience was fantastic. They even personalized our menu since we were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary. Just amazing!
