A dramatic staircase leads to a second level lounge, where a large bar, mahogany millwork and plush seating create the perfect atmosphere for cocktails and light fare. Custom louvered shutters surround the west veranda, while an additional terrace on the north side is fully enclosed and features additional dining tables.

We’ve dined here a million times. The service is always subpar and will continue to effect the ratings of this place. The food is good but our Gyoza came out cold and had to be remade. Getting refills of non water drinks was a hassle. And our waiter wasn’t aware if he could split checks or not which is an issue I haven’t had at restaurants who define themselves as elevated dining. He was new but we dine here frequently so someone should have informed him so he wasn’t put in an awkward position also he continuously told us no until
We told him we split check every time we dine there. I love the food but I always leave feeling bad about the service.

Ambience and food quality was excellent as was the table service

However the only thing that spoilt the experience was being charge $45 for 2 glasses of white wine after the meal

Second time eating here. Food is good as is service at the table. What lets them down is the Front of House greeting. on both occasions this has been poor and below the standard you would expect from a restaurant at this level. Starts the meal off badly and has put us off visiting again

The noise was an issue since we ate outside and a number of motorcycles kept driving through the area. The food was fine but the problem was our waiter. My companion does not eat spicy food and was assured that her dish was not spicy. However, there was a portion of her entree that was very spicy and the waiter argued with her that it was not spicy. A good waiter does not argue with the patron. He does not have her tastebuds. We had to get the manager to resolve the issue. In all my years of dining out, I do not ever believe that I have had a wiater argue with me, especially about how the food tasted!

A perfect spot for Sunday brunch! I sat on the upstairs balcony and they opened the shutters. Lovely spot, great breeze!The service was outstanding and the food fantastic! I had a small beef pho which was almost enough for a meal itself and the spicy shrimp stir fry.

I asked for just a "little heat" and it was perfect! Most customers were dressed in business casual or their Sunday best. I highly recommend it for a lovely, albeit slightly pricy brunch!

We went for my daughter’s 22nd birthday party. The appetizers were great, drinks were great, but all of the entrees but the lamb chops were not good. We sent back a mushy and freezing cold salmon dish and the waiter argued with one of our guest as to why she didn’t like the dish. My husband had to tell him to stop arguing and get her another meal. Fun place but they didn’t seem to be able to handle a large party of 10 and maintain the quality. Most of the entrees were not edible. $900 for a bad meal.

Buen restaurante, solo que la promoción de los lunes de las botellas de precio menor a los $100 dolares con el 50% de descuento, ya prácticamente no aplica, ya que casi no hay vinos menores de $100 dolares en la carta de vinos, la opción es muy limitada.

It was very pleasant; a smaller crowd, excellent service, tasty dishes, no one was rushing us… It was a beautiful day.

We love this restaurant. The only problem we had at a recent Sunday brunch was the sparkling rose wine we usually order was no longer on the menu. We asked the waitperson to bring us a bottle of the replacement rose but shame on us, we did not ask the price!!! It was outrageously expensive! It was double the price of the one we used to get. We should have inquired but assumed a replacement wine would be the same price or close to it. The waitperson could have informed us of the price point difference which would have been a courtesy in my opinion and would have made an alternative choice. Otherwise, the food is wonderful and always consistent.

Normally, the food is absolutely outstanding! Our food last night was good but not the usual outstanding...
The whole snapper fish was a bit over fried, and our stir fried veggies didn't have much flavor.

Food was good as usual. However, it occurred to me after I got home that I did not get my soup! I checked with my friend who treated us for the lunch and it was apparently charged in the bill.

Came for my husband’s birthday and thought the service and food was just ok. I was expecting more from the staff but it felt like they were in a rush to go and put in the order without talking through the options that we had asked about regarding our vegetarian dietary restrictions. Drinks were great but that’s about it.
