    The food cannot be faulted. It was all absolutely delicious and perfectly cooked! The noise with the brunch was quite loud but we didn’t mind too much. As we had emirates platinum the value was incredible but do believe it still would’ve been good value if discount wasn’t applied.

    While the quality of food was above the average, the price/quality ratio was not adequate. The venue looked like TJ friday and the service, while server was nice, didnt deserve any mention. There are better places in dubai for that price.

    My partner and I had a reservation for a fixed menu on NYE. I specified that she was vegetarian prior to our reservation. She even had a vegetarian fixed menu. They still managed to serve her meat. In addition, was she not only served meat, she was served beef, which is completely against her religion. It completely ruined our new year’s celebration, as we decided to leave after there being no way they could redeem themselves. After that, we didn’t even feel like celebrating after such a terrible time. Could not have had a worse experience. I’ve still yet to receive a refund, and it’s been over two weeks. They haven’t even asked what they can do to remedy the situation. I think a refund is the least they should do, but for ruining our New Year’s Eve celebration, they should’ve definitely done more.

    Yes it was on a top floor overlooking part of city and palm project but the prices are too unreasonable if you don't have a discount card. Can make lot of importants to the ambience.

    We were hoping for much more considering the prices of the steak etc. This restaurant has amazing views and was an old favourite but sadly it looks tired, the tables were all bare like in a coffee shop, no table lighting or setting that would have added a festive touch or given the restaurant a bit of glamour which it was lacking. Instead it was void and they seemed unprepared. The food was okay and it enjoyed the prawns but the bland decor and environment sadly did not live up to the prices.

    Such great food & drinks, it was absolutely undoubtedly top class! We got the short rib croquettes, Wagyu strip loin and whiskey sours on the side - all of which couldn’t be faulted. Compliments to both the chef and bar staff. Highly recommend.

    Views are spectacular. But the restaurant is tired. Needs a total update/makeover. And, for such prices, should be white tablecloth. Overall, would not go back - so many better places in Dubai.

    We ordered one appetizer, 3 desserts and coffee with milk and asked to bring everything at the same time. The server brought appetizer with coffees, no milk, no desserts. Around approximately 20-25 minutes later desserts came, but the coffees were already cold, so we had to wait for the replacement...Desserts were too sweet, and not worth the money. I wouldn't recommend this place

    Food was OK, we tried the tacos on a Wednesday. We were asked by a staff member to register for Marriott membership just so that the staff member would get some bonus i guess. I do not understand why we should spend time on that during our family dinner when we received no discount or anything on the meal?

    We had a great dinner and a few cocktails. The quality of all items was great. We had mains from the restaurant menu, which was delicious but the portions weren’t big. The bar snacks at other tables looked pretty good. And maybe more generous portions.
