    Usually I’m pretty understanding when it comes to catering for my allergy(garlic) because it’s not always easy, but this was ridiculous. When ordering food, my allergy was completely disregarded. She basically told me to stop talking and I was told to wait for her to put an order through, which I understood, then when I could finally ask she told me “if it doesn’t say it on the menu then it’s not in it.” She said this in a rude way and didn’t even ask if it was an allergy or anything, just walked away before I could say. so IMAGINE my frustration and disappointment when my food arrived to the table and it had the food I was allergic to right on top of it. And THEN she asked me if I was allergic to it! To top it off me and my partners steaks were cooked opposite. Mine was rare not Medium rare, when it was meant to be his. His was medium rare. Which was fine, we still ate it and the food was yummy, it was just disappointment added. And finally the service from the person who seated us was lovely but the person who took our order was rude and as someone with an allergy I didn’t feel safe eating there or comfortable. Overall it did not make spending that much money feel worth it because we didn’t even receive good service. Just upsetting really.

    We were forced to wait long time and 2 meat dishes finally served were already cold like cooked 30min ago. The staff asked us reheat them or grill them from beginning. We had to say NO because reheating make them stiff despite we requested them midimu rare and it would take anothe 30 min before being served. Nothing was compensated at the casher and also 20% discount for guests having booked tabel before 1800 on specific week days were also neglected. I hope they could do something for us for the teribble service we got. For example, we would ask them to refund 50% to my credit card as a token of compensation for this sad experience. Hope you could check this with staffs on duty at that night as they remember us right. BR yokokawa

    Best restaurant I have personally been to in ages. The atmosphere is beautiful and calming and its not too loud or quiet. The food there really surprised me as it was the most quality delicious food I’ve ever seen in a restaurant. 10/10 I would most definitely recommend.

    Very nice steak place. Sharing platters well worth it for a large group/family. Medium done is on the rarer side.

    Serving food at their house is very strange. You must wait until everyone at the table has ordered everything before serving food. . . There were several tables with many customers that day, and they all had no choice but to wait! The food is not very good, T-BONE steak and ice cream dessert, the bread is ok, everything else is a disaster

    Hi, thanks for your review! We appreciate you mentioning our policy of waiting for everyone to order. While it's not as common as individual ordering, it reflects our focus on creating a shared dining experience where conversation flows naturally. We understand this might not suit everyone, especially if you already know your choices. We'll definitely consider your feedback as we evaluate our service procedures. Regarding the food quality, we're disappointed to hear the T-bone steak and other dishes missed the mark. We pride ourselves on using fresh ingredients, and your comments are valuable. We'll share your feedback directly with our chefs to help them refine the menu and ensure a more satisfying dining experience for future guests.
