    The service staff greeted up with a reminder that we only had the table for 2 hours and that there was an $80 minimum spend. This is fine but did not need to be communicated in such a manner. The general demeanor was to try to get us out of there as quickly as possible.

    Food was absolutely exceptional, and the handcrafted cocktails were amazing and tasty. Service was hot and miss because our server couldn’t hear us and forgot our drinks!

    The ambience of the place was great. I loved that we had a seperate area to eat and chat without too much noise. I expected more out of the booking. We thought there was going to be more entertainment

    We were very impressed with the half price cocktails and food as well as having a bottle of bubbles given complimentary for my birthday. Fantastic value and staff were so friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend!
