    We sat outside and enjoyed the atmosphere. That was amazing view and weather. We were really happy to have not only wine and beer but also soft drinks and coffee with dessert. We definitely return with other friends.

    Excellent food and service as normal. However, the Sax player is far too loud, not nice when seated right next to him. We asked for the speaker to be turned away from us which it was but still too loud. The DJ was much more in tune with what is required i.e. ambient background music.

    overall is good. but two things should be improved. 1. my schedule has been changed without any notification ( + I was expecting my birthday cake , but I haven't received it. very sad 😭) 2. the noise level was not good, sound is a little bit loud to enjoy the food and the mood. the other things are really nice. every person is very so kind and very helpful the food is really nice especially the steak i love so much

    Food selection superb. Service terrible. Loud music ruined the ambiance and our experience. DJ choice of music was more suitable to a night club (banging), not a brunch. Manager helpful by switching off nearby speaker, but still had banging music throughout restaurant.

    18th March 23 - This is our third visit for Saturday Brunch. Each time the drinks service is somewhat disappointing as initially, it was taking circa 15mins to get the first and second drinks. Servers are very cheerful and keen to please and Ashok and Lulu did a great job. Food is very good. They have a saxophonist and background music throughout the afternoon which is much too loud. I work in Health and Safety and the sound was consistently in excess of 80 decibels. It’s supposed to enhance your experience. Had to converse with raised voices. Reducing the volume would make the experience much better.

    We were celebrating my Husbands birthday and wanted to go somewhere nice, so after a bit of research we decided Giornotte at the Fabulous Ritz Carlton in Abu Dhabi as it had great reviews and ticked all the boxes. Nigel the Manager and all his staff did a fantastic job serving us and keeping us happy, they even provided us with a small birthday cake and candle without us knowing about it. It was a lovely touch to a very enjoyable meal. Afterwards Nigel personally escorted us upstairs to visit the new Jazz Bar Sorso and listen to the Singer and Musicians. It was equally as good and we were given a complimentary glass of Prosecco each to continue celebrating the Birthday. Thank You Giornotte for giving us a night to remember.

    Still one of the best brunches. Disappointing service as waiters were more bothered selling raffle tickets for a good cause however paying £150 for a brunch I expect the waiters to serve you. Overall a great brunch priorities need to be better managed

    Difficult to review post Covid 19. Service was slow for drinks could have done with more than 2 people behind the bar. Food was good but not sure that buffet style works with social distancing. Must admit that deserts were pretty good

    Very warm welcoming atmosphere, excellent service, with a lot of attention to details in order to please us. All food and desserts was excellent. The service waiters and chefs were always service with a smile and very patient with us. Conclusion, I would recommend to any of my friends that they must take the opportunity to go and try the brunch, and do not hesitate! No words can truly describe how awesome of an experience it was at Giornotte Friday Brunch.

    Having dined at Giornotte a couple of years ago, we were really looking forward to our return visit. However, we were quite underwhelmed to be honest. Gone was the cheese room, gone was the original sweet room, and gone was the huge Wagyu beef. The food was ok, but nothing special, we wont be going again.

    First visit back to the Friday brunch here for a couple of years and had a high level of expectation. Unfortunately it did not deliver and we were somewhat disappointed with what was on offer. Gone was the amazing Sweet Room, Gone was the Cheese Room and the signature Wagyu Roast. Service was good and the quality of the food was very good but its not as good as it was. Package prices were ok but pushing it for the sparkling and champagne packages. One complaint, if you are going to have a super Gin Bar with some fab Gin's, provide a premium Tonic !
