None of my notes for this reservation (which I made a few weeks prior to the date) - were taking into consideration. I even pointed out to those the first thing we arrived - but still, none of them was implemented.
And that was my wife's birthday - which went (and felt) like a regular eat-out. I did not want to emphasise it more, just to avoid completely ruining the spirit (that we still had).
Quite disappointed.

Terrible service, we had reserved a table with birthday information for a five year old, weeks ahead and were told we would be sitting next to the loud bar and that we would have to vacate our seats and wait another hour or so again.

Really cute spot for afternoon high tea or some snacks. The location is great, it’s not super loud or crowded, and the staff are really awesome. Also really great for good Instagram photo lol.

Me and my ladies went there hve a birthday celebration. The waitress is sloppy and not really attentive.

1st: I ordered a regular iced black tea unsweetened. She brought me a tea that DIY from a bartender with alot of cinnamon spice and lemon etc. LOL i refused it because thats a totally two different drink i ordered.

2nd: i ordered my salad dressing on the side, everyone on my table heard that i said it clearly and loud to this waitress, i make sure she heard my words. But then... the salad that brought to me is done mixing with all the dressing. Lol Sigh....

Well, may be i put too much expectation towords this place.

Good luck to next customers.

Took my boyfriend here for his birthday. Made a reservation for 445 to be able to get happy hour oysters and they were all out of oysters both regular and happy hour when we arrived which was disappointing. The food we did order was good, but took awhile.

Our waiter was Mel and he made the experience phenomenal. I went for my birthday and it couldn’t have gone any better. Mel made amazing recommendations and made sure all us were enjoying our food and drinks. The lounge itself was very aesthetically pleasing and quiet and the patio has a great view. I also really appreciated their COVID protocols. I will most definitely go again

The music was loud and awful. Ruined the ambiance. Playing loud elevator music is not a good ambiance to have dinner. The heaters could be on as it was a cold day.

Loved the food, service, ambiance, everything!! We had the best server. Forgot to catch his name but he was awesome and got a fat tip from me. He ended up giving us free lemon drops! Haha thought that was really sweet of him to do that.

Our waiter was very unfriendly and unwilling to accommodate my friends food, as she was a vegetarian. He simply replied back by saying “that’s too bad.” Once we switched out waiter she was given an alternative for her food. I think we were mainly upset because we had come to H Tasting for my friends birthday lunch.

In times of COVID and wanting to enjoy a beautiful spot with friends; while keeping a social distance, this is the perfect place.

Although we were outside and didn't have a clear view of the water; the ambience and the gorgeous fire pit and waterfall was lovely.

Happy Hour! This place is beautiful and their service is wonderful! The only reason it didn't get 5 🌟 is unfortunately out of the 12 oysters I had 6 of them had bits of broken shell in them, not the end of the world but definitely unpleasant. Their happy hour isn't extensive (it only has 3 food items on it) but they were all well prepared. We had the following:

24 Kusshi Oysters (Happy Hour Buck-a-shuck) - plump, fresh & creamy. Was missing the horseradish though.
2 Sliders (Happy Hour Item) - flavourful & filling, a lot packed into a little bite. Could have been a little hotter.
2 Fish Tacos (Happy Hour Item) - fish was nice & crispy, pico de gallo was fresh, & the cabbage gave it a nice crunch.
Truffle Fries - crispy on the outside, fluffy & pillowy soft on the inside just like a good fry should be & that side of aioli 🔥
Americano Cocktail (Happy hour Item) - my partner enjoyed this drink but it wasn't for me
Lemongrass Lemonade - had great flavour with a touch of sweetness it was delicious & refreshing
2 Coffees - strong & smooth not bitter at all.

We waited for 2 hours before we could get a seat on The patio. I had a reservation already but other people would get a table before us. Food took like another hour to come. My husband and I would never ever go back to that restaurant and would never recommend it. It ruined our mood and date night. We even told one of the servers that other people are being seated outside before us and she agreed. If you cant give the same kind of service And treat everyone the same no what what their race is, then you should probably just close your restaurant. We’ve never felt like this before at any other restaurant we’ve been to.
