Went to Publico for dinner with a friend once.
The decor is really nice, lighting, setting and all. What surprised me is the taste of the food actually, it's really good. I had their burger and my friend had the pasta.
I recommend this restaurant for the food. Service is not really good and slow, lack of product knowledge. Price is still quite expensive. Ambiance is more for the younger crowd, 20 something.
I won't come back just to hang out, but to eat whenever I have the chance to come back.

I went there for business luncheon.
Great place, great food. Love the green salad and scallops... all food recommendations also meet to our expectations.
Do not worry for the smokers, they have great tables for you :)
Very recommended.

We went on a relatively queit lunch, and had the juicy tenderloin beef salad and black angus sirloin. Overall, the restaurant suffes from lack of management. It has great potential, with a pleasant old fashioned 20's era style decor, high quality meat and sexy looking bar. Sadly, waiters do not seem to be trained well, were unable to answer simple questions, and the guy who took our order left the table without asking how we liked the steak cooked. Food presentation was at best mediocre - given the price, its not good value for your money!. All areas are smoking (maybe this is norm for Jakarta) but nevertheless off-putting. On a good note, the barista made good latte! Come here only if you happen to be at Senopati area and run out of options.

A friend recommended us. We had tataki steak for main course, which is very good although the serving can be bigger ( should be served with some sort of carbohidrate). For dessert, we had peanut butter sandwich which is awesome.
