Happened to be there the night of the GQ awards so the place was heaving with A list celebrities. Food pretty good, staff very friendly.
Overall very fun night

A stylish and atmospheric restaurant in the smart centre of town. The food was very nice, and the service was excellent as you would expect in a top dollar restaurant. The only remark I would make is that the better atmosphere is in the lovely main dining room on the ground floor and it is this image that the restaurant trades off. In our case, although we had booked a table and it was a busy Saturday night, we were put in the large basement dining area which is pleasant and was also busy but not the same. Is it unfair to suggest that families and foreigners are out downstairs? It certainly looked that way and you should ask for a table on the ground floor to avoid the same dark suspicions of their door policy.

The food was good. No issues there. The down side of our experience was arguably our fault, in deciding to go to a very clubby, fancy-people-watching venue on a Saturday night at 8:30. We're just, y'know, ordinary folks wanting a well-prepared meal in a venerable setting. We were seated within about ten minutes of our reservation time--but downstairs, in a smoky, low-ceilinged overflow room. We decided to wait until we could sit upstairs. Wait we did, for an hour and a half. Others who arrived after us were seated, served, and gone before we sat down. Should I have tipped the maitre d? Should I have been more insistent? Should I have just started drinking and let an alcohol haze wash away annoyance? --A nice dinner doesn't cause you to have to pose such questions.
We had a splendid dinner two nights later at Facil, in the Mandarin Hotel, where we were treated respectfully start to finish. Go there instead.

Had amazing service and delicious food here. Server was just amazing - made great suggestions and was fun and friendly. Interior decor felt a bit white and stark, and a few pieces of art wouldn't be a bad idea. Looks like there's a nice outdoor section for when the weather is better

So we were stuck in the backyard... with miles to run for the staff... who didn't really enjoy their jobs. Boring food, slow to arrive, enormous bill for us six. All in all an experience we won't repeat.
