H Tasting Lounge Ratings and Reviews
Thank you so much for the hospitality! We all enjoyed the food, the amazing music and the space. Everything was so lovely!
I was very impressed with the live music , i think makes a very attractive venue. i would suggest the hotel advertise this venue as there is very little mention in the music scene papers or write ups. Its romantic great views nice setting by the water , a very unique setting. I think its great you support live music. I think the food menu was on the expensive side , for sure there was room to charge a little less as the drink menues were a little more in line.
Went there for xmas dinner. Ordered the lobster mousse stuffed chicken wings, oyster and sea urchins. two thumbs up for all appies. However, the main courses were a bit disappointing. The black truffle linguine and lobster mac n
cheese were a bit bland. but the lobster itself was very fresh.
Occasion: Christmas Day dinner.
Atmosphere: The lounge is well appointed, chic without being intimidating and intimately lit. We were seated at a small table where the chairs were far too low. If you are not a fan of sitting on low chair/stool, I would recommend asking for a bar top style table. There was live music in the form of a singer/pianist and then a guitar duo which were both far too loud. I personally prefer a lounge with soft piano music playing as oppose to feeling like I'm there for a dinner concert.
Food and Drinks: I ordered a pineapple juice with sprite, mint and specific instruction for easy ice. The drink came very well presented with sprigs of mint and dried pineapple but about 75% of my drink was ice. Our server never noticed that we did not receive any cutlery/place setting until my appetizer came and I asked for a table napkin. She seemed surprised that the cutlery doesn't dance their way onto tables like in "Beauty and the Beast". The Bone Marrow with garlic confit under the "take off" section was delayed and when it eventually arrived, never took off. It was one bone marrow and one slice of bread for $18 (If you want to really take off on bone marrow air, I suggest heading to "The Flying Pig") Last but not least the "In Flight" Black Truffle Linguine was met with an unforgiving air of turbulence. Thankfully, I had the foresight to add two diver scallops. At $35 for a small portion of pasta, three paper thin slices of black truffles and additional $12 for two diver scallops, this lounge menu leaves me stranded at the Hungry International Airport after checking in at the Wanting More Terminal.
This is just a hotel lobby lounge. The room is beautiful, however that was the only good thing about our experience (other than the live music, but the acoustics were still not great). Portions are small and awkward to eat, service was terrible... 9 tables in the place, 3 servers 2 bartenders, what looked like 2 managers and a host.... and it felt like everyone was running around. The man who served our wine was very awkward and did not know how to do proper wine service (although he took the bottle from the table, opened it away from us, and tasted it all behind a wall... very strange). I feel like this room has so much potential but the staff appeared to be poorly trained, they seemed stressed, and the food/wine/cocktails are all VERY high priced. I don't mind paying top price in the high end hotels and restaurants in the city, but this was not worth the prices. We actually left to go elsewhere for dinner our experience was so terrible. I would love to see this place get it together as it is one of the most beautiful spaces around.
The lounge itself is absolutely stunning, the cocktails were a particular highlight. Staff were courteous but busy as it was full with a private party & hotel guests. Will definitely go back
Disappointing experience. Greeted by confused staff, who seemed to give away our reserved table to a vocal customer who wanted a side table. We waited a long time for a menu and for service.
It you like Riesling wine - this is the lounge for you. 14 of the 27 wines on the white wine list were Riesling!!!! Beautiful atmosphere but if you are there in the winter wear your warmest winter coat as it is cold from the hotel doors opening all the time.
food looks fabulous！the layout is very impressive, but taste not “that” perfect.
cocktails are outstanding and tasty!
wI'll definitely come again for the drinks and atmospheres
Very much a lounge, and not a restaurant.
We chose the beef from a very limited menu, which was excellent, however the rest of the plate was sparce.
Nice place, but not for dinner.
Flavours were good but the portions were very small and pricey for that reason. Just don't come here hungry! Great for a light snack and drinks. Live music is always a nice touch.
