We came here for a small celebration. Both ordered the set menu, one with 4 courses, the other with 5 courses. We also had the flatbread. The food is good, well-presented, with quality ingredients. The expectations are met for a good restaurant, but does not have the makings of an excellent one, we did not walk away wow-ed by the food.
Our experience was marred by the inability of the wait staff to execute their duties with pride. They were malaise, and at times downright condescending and rude in their communication with us. Unfortunately, this was the case for 3 of the 4 wait staff we encountered. Despite an empty restaurant (only 3 other tables were occupied) and four wait staff loitering the area, the front of house was at a total loss. No one filled our water. We mentioned that we wanted wine with our mains, but no one followed up or offered the wine menu.
When we were seated, one wait staff said "We can offer you our flatbread, please choose two toppings". We were later charged for the flatbread, and duly paid. However, this left a poor impression as we did not feel that the wait staff was unaware of the implications of the words she chose.
We spent approx $350 for the dinner. For this price, there are numerous other places one could have visited for a memorable dinner with similar or better food quality and service. We will not return, and recommend that if you choose to patronise this establishment, try it for a casual night instead of a special occasion.
