Impeccable service, very fancy atmosphere with prices to match. Food was good yet uneven, as some plates were amazing (like the duck) and some not (seafood spaguetti). Me and my girlfriend had an awesome time, but be prepared as it's noisy with the after-work crowd in the bar area. All in all, a nice place for a special occasion. Shouldn't have ordered dessert as the complementary petit-fours were delicious, maybe even more than the dessert itself. And the bread is awesome!

This was up there with one of my best dining experiences ever! Service was impeccable! Food was amazzzzzing! We had the Lasagnetta Croccante, Variazione D'Anatra and Flounder with sweet peas, porcini mushrooms and fava beans. The best fish dish I've ever had! And my husband loved the duck. The waiter brought us a pre appetizer of sweet potato panna cotta, I need the recipe. It had crunchy lentils and was just delicious. The staff is very attentive. We had a sampling of desserts that was delicious too. Worth every penny for a wonderful experience and delicious dinner! Can't wait to come back.

Although the price might throw you off, this restaurant is tres magnific! The service is spectacular. The atmosphere.... ridiculous and the food to-die-for. This ravishing experience is well worth your time! I had the duck two ways and I could have eaten it two more times it was so good. The desserts were incredible two, and the view is impecable. It is a must do! and trust me i've been to lots of fancy high priced restaurants, but none compare to this.

Food: the food was truly amazing! The taste and presentation of the food was exceptional! Wine: the wine had a great flavor. What was disappointing is that the wine we ordered should have been decanted and put through a filter. The big complaint for the wine was too much sediment was left in each glass. A second bottle was ordered, decanted, but the same issue occurred of too much sediment left in each glass. A few new glasses were brought to the table, but not first asking for them. Server: the server did a nice job. He explained the specials, repeated our orders, left us alone. Not sure why it took over 30 minutes between the entrée and the dessert to be served. At the end, also waited a very long time to be able to ask for the check. Overall a great experience. Too bad the wine needed to be strained and decanted.

I'm here almost every weekend...and everytime 3 people wait on me. Maybe it's the weekend, new staff but regardless...still very attentive. And love the house appetizer. Breakfast is just awesome.

I had been to Armani Ristorante on a previous occasion and enjoyed a decent meal . There is little wrong in the kitchen . However on a second visit it became all too clear that the well dressed staff have absolutely no idea how to run a restaurant. We arrived at 8.00 pm as walk ins and things started to go awry before we were seated. The host first asked for my surname And followed up by asking my first name . I fail to see what need there was for this as we wanted to be seated immediately . He then disappeared with our coats and didnt reappear . We then had to try to find another host to seat us. The restaurant was pretty empty with only four other tables seated. No really big deal but I wasn't really feeling the love yet. Unfortunately things just went from bad to worse. First of all I should point out that anyone with less than 20/20 vision will need a microscope to see the english translation of the menu . A minor point I know but there's nothing elegant or romantic about squinting over a menu and having to ask your companion if they can see any better than you. Considering that Armani sell a wide range of glasses it was surprising that the waiter had no reading glasses available. These minor considerations shouldn't spoil an evening but what came next certainly did. A large group of around 40 people who were sitting in the lounge area were seated right behind us. If they had just sat down ... They moved to the tables talking and shouting and one of them with a large camera was touring the tables taking photographs with a flash. As if this wasn't intrusive enough the budding pap then walked across then restaurant and stared taking shots of a minor celeb who was sitting opposite us. No waiter of manager intervened and I had to tell him very firmly to stop. Ten minutes later the host of this corporate event decided to give a speech which again was not stopped or apologised for to me by management. I suppose I was naively hoping that the large party were going to pay for my dinner as I was so intimately involved in theirs.. Having finished our main courses I asked for the manager. I explained to her that we felt like gatecrashers at a wedding and that maybe they should have told us that the restaurant was being used for a private party when we arrived As we were out for a quiet local dinner we would have politely declined. She was not apologetic and made very little effort to placate me.

Fabulous food and service but a bit pricey.
