Well after the reviews on trip advisor I was very wary about going to Mahiki. I spoke with the reservations team only 2 days before we wanted to book a table, they were very helpful and organised everything perfectly. We had read the reviews on here about not being allowed in at the door and not having a record of your reservation. We didnt have any of that. Everything was perfect as arranged 2 days previous. The door staff were slightly rude on arrival and made us wait about 5 minutes at the door but I wouldnt say this is anything worthy of complaining about.
We were shown to our table which was upstairs in the bar at the back. Given menus and drinks/food explained to us, the service the whole night was incredible, attended to everything we needed. We are not rich and realised Mahiki was quite expensive but we decided to treat ourselves so we didnt worry too much about the cost. I would say if you are on a tight budget this is not the place for you. Individual cocktails are around £9 which is the cheapest thing on the menu. There was a group of us so we ordered bottles of Vodka, it was free flowing all night with unlimited mixers and some shared food platters. We spend £100 each and that was including a very generous service charge. So if you are willing to push the boat out a little go for it.
As for the atmosphere, it was amazing, the music was great, we danced the whole night. The bar upstairs is every bit as good as the club downstairs (its the same music played) the club is just darker and more club like. I really dont have a bad word to say about this and confused about all the reviews written that are slating it. Yes its upmarket, yes some people can be rude, yes its filled with beautiful rich guys and girls but what else do you expect from a high end bar in London....in Mayfair? If you want a brilliant night with friends and dont mind spending a bit extra, this is the place.
I would watch out what taxi they put you in when leaving the club. Our taxi tried to charge us £30 for 0.7mile journey, so just beware of that.
