Great food and great view. Our server forgot about us so it took 40 minutes to get our drinks. Other than that, it was great.

Very busy and social distancing was hard with amount of people allowed on rooftop at one time. Lots of people taking photos of views whilst you’re eating.
Lovely food and drinks and the view is incredible.

The outside seats had a beautiful view of the city and rooftop was very well arranged. The food was delicious and even the small portions were filling. However the visitors of the hotel who went into the pool hit quite the splash as my shoes and my pants were wet at the end of the meal. Our waiter although very nice, didn't provide the top notch quality service that was expected. Our order was taken and having waited a while, we asked our waiter the status of our food and she returned with the food and claimed she forgot it that the stand and the food was just there waiting to be picked up. We asked for ketchup but that was never brought to us so we were required to ask another waiter who kindly brought it over. Overall besides our waiter, the staff handled situations quite well. The day was extremely windy and all the napkins that flew around and a fallen over flower plant were quick to be picked up or relocated. Overall the experience was fairly good and made me and my guest welcome.

Came for brunch only to find out it is only served on weekends. Big bummer. The seating hostess even told us it was still the brunch menu. When our server came to our table she noticed we were browsing the brunch menu and told us. It was a disappointment seeing as I had already been for lunch and wasn’t wowed. Regardless the atmosphere was great and our server was fantastic.

Service was impeccable, we had a small barcode in our drink (maybe from a piece of fruit) and let the busser know, who apologized, alerted our server, who also apologized. She proceeded to get us a full new drink, and soon after the manager came over and apologized. All very genuinely. Good service

Some of the best customer service I ever had at a restaurant! People always checking up on us, one of our sides came late so they took it off the menu without us even having to say anything, my waiter even brought the heater next to our table when he noticed I was cold. The view is amazing as well. My only criticism is that I wish there was more options on the menu. There are only 4 options for the main course and they’re ehhh. We got the steak and it was really good!

First time here for my sister’s 18th birthday. Everything was above expectation. Everyone at my table loved their food, service was really great and we were taken care of by the host and waiter. Would def come back and high recommend for the experience. If you are looking to book for dinner between 5-7pm make sure you book well in advance (weeks).

We had the most amazing time at KŌST, it was our first time and my friends birthday. Our server (I forget his name) but he was from Paris, France and had just starting a few weeks ago, this gentleman had provided the most exceptional service I have ever experienced in a restaurant, he was genuine and provided amazing hospitality. Thank you Kost!!

I loved the experience and our waiter was amazing. The only thing was our table was half inside and half outside yet still considered “outdoor seating.” I specifically requested outdoor seating a month in advance I would’ve preferred to have had a table that was fully outside so we could have enjoyed the view further. I think it is a bit misleading to consider a table that is half inside as outdoor seating. Especially since I made the reso so early in advance I would’ve liked to have had a better table. Other than that it was a great experience and I will definitely be coming back.

The drinks and dessert were not that good! Kind of waste of money for $80! But it’s just the ambience I was there for! We booked in advance and when asked to be moved to a table with sun, they wouldn’t let us. Then asked a server to take our pic and said he cannot due to covid, which I understand! However how come other servers were taking pics of guests then? Rules were not the same for all! I would like to come to try brunch maybe someday! However the server and employee we had was awesome!

The servicing staff inside of the restaurant are amazing. However the hostess at the entrance was very unprofessional. We came without reservation during weekday around lunch time. Hostess was unfriendly, said they are fully booked for the day and that we had to do a reservation in advance. After talking to her, I decided to check OpenTable website and was very surprised when i saw a table available for 4 people in a 10 minutes. Not sure why hostess didn't accommodate us but this was a very unpleasant experience and I would not recommend this place as they discriminate people.

I love the vibe, the ambiance, the service. But the food is honestly NOT GOOD. If you come here, just come for a drink. It's not worth spending money on ingredients that were stale, fish that was not fresh and low quality produce.

Bad food, but the view is great. Worth it just for that.

AMAZING restaurant that we recommend definitely. You have to taste their avocado toast !!
The atmosphere is very good also ! You are at the 44th floor of Bisha hotel.

To finish, the waiters are so kind and attentive to your needs.

Thanks a lot for the experience !! We will be back soon :)
