There was issue with the bar getting our cocktail order had to wait quite some time. Felt we were given unnecessary attitude from manager when asking how much longer the drinks would take . Food was okay nothing to rave about overall a very pretty venue but doesn’t deliver the experience you would expect.

Awful music with swearing and the crowd was not young. Dirty windows. The entire service and vibe has down hill significantly. Too many quality places on the coast for that.

Rushed service despite the restaurant not being full and having a reservation. The food was very quick to come out - too quick as we were enjoying pre dinner cocktails. We ordered six share plates and all were disappointing; under cooked chicken, chewy calamari, tasteless prawns. The wait staff were very friendly however.

I ordered the chocolate mouse as my dessert and unfortunately as I was about to take the first spoonful I noticed a spider crawling over the mouse.
I wasn’t offered any type of discount just another serving of the dessert. The thought of crunching on the spider definitely took my appetite away. So I did not take the offer up for another dessert.
I’ve dined at your restaurant a few times now but left unsatisfied this time.

This place is spectacular. I can’t fault it. Every time I go it is the best night out, thank you to all of the staff, and congratulations to the owners for making a spectacular place on the Coast

Great venue but the only thing I could find a little negative was that when your seated you can’t see out the windows to the view.
Other than that our dining experience was great!

Great location, great service and the food was incredible. The only complaint (I hate complaining) the fans didn't work and it was a hot afternoon.

would not recommend circa. service was terrible, table was over looked and little attention paid to us. we waited 20 minutes for the cocktail menu, then told that the staff had forgotten about us. twice I had asked for some bread to eat with my food, both times the request was forgotten. for a venue that asks for a dress code and charges higher than average prices, I was very surprised with the look of the menus. just pieces of paper. very disappointed in my experience, will not be back.

Went for my sister’s birthday. From sitting at booth, staff took a long time to check if we were ready to order. 3 of us ordered the banquet and two ordered an individual meal. Meals and drinks took ages to come out. Had to ask how far drinks would be away. Had to ask main manager for table water and it took 15 minutes to bring water. When the individual charcuterie meal came out, no knives and forks were provided. My brother-in-law had to get some for himself. Don’t ask for what event on your booking site, if you’re not going to make people feel special for their birthday. We then headed to Rooftop and Garden bar and they made my sister feel so special. Gave her a free shot of liquer, offered table water without us asking, such a better atmosphere and customer service! Really disappointed and can’t understand why drinks and food took so long when there weren’t many diners.

The bar is decorated beautifully, but what let’s this place down is the service. It needs a lot of work. Right from the beginning the Waitress who seated us was rude. After waiting 10 mins and no one coming to our table to take our drink order, we waived her down and asked if we could order because no one had been over yet and were told “well, we’re very busy!”
After that they either brought the wrong food or drinks to our table on at least 4 occasions through the night.

The waitress were absent chatting among themselves and not looking after the customers. After a couple of Margaritas we ordered a bottle of wine that when it was delivered was left on the table inside the bucket.
The bottle was not opened nor the wine poured. We had to call the waitress for sometime before they bothered to come to find out what was the problem. We wanted service!!!! And also we could not open the bottle of wine as the top was too tight.
The waitress was a bit clumsy and she dropped the complimentary dessert on the table, offered to compensate the fact that they didn't poored the wine on the table. The dessert had to be re-constructed, although the waitress tried to lure us to take the damaged goods, we declined.
It was a pitty the service was so poor because the food was excellent. Perhaps a better paid professional waiters would be the answer to this restaurant.

Great little bar, very pink, loved the booths. Its well worth a visit...Cocktails were good, we didn't eat anything. We just went for drinks. Music was good, not too loud and nice chilled lounge music. We all very much enjoyed it.
Table service was brilliant, attentive and friendly.

Didn’t really feel like a rooftop bar. Be nice if it had an open roof area and seats where higher so you could see out. Music was a bit loud and towards the end of the night, VERY repetitive. Cheers

Food was lovely but there was a large function on and they had a live band on. We were not told this at the time of booking. you couldn’t hear the waiter speak and there was barley any conversation between the table. I would go again but I would be asking if they have a large function on before booking.

Our only "concern" is the other patron's behaviour brought the mood down a bit.
The Venue it's self is wonderful, and the food is amazing. Especially the Chicken Bao.
Our intersate guests had a great time

The venue and food are great however the service needs some work as it didn't live up to the 'experience' advertised. Whilst our waitress was polite, sweet and well presented she was obviously very inexperienced or perhaps not suffiently trained. We waited over 30 minutes for our initial drinks/food order to be taken whilst staff either chatted or cleared away empty tables, our glesses remained empty, staff had no no knowledge of the food or drinks menu and coordination between the staff was lacking.

Our food was awesome and very fairly priced. The waitstaff were impeccable and very attentive. I can’t remember the name of our girl but she had red hair and a platt. Give her a raise! She was great.
The only thing I would suggest is a coffee or hot chocolate style desert. My mother in-law doesn’t drink and at the end of our meal really wanted a sweet drink but we couldn’t find one. We were told to go downstairs to up town for an iced coffee.
Otherwise we had a great time.
The music could be a little less techno and a little more bluesy too..

Went out to dinner and drinks for a ladies night out. Booked three weeks in advance requesting a window booth but were placed in the middle of the venue. They had a dj playing quite loudly at 6.30pm, so it made it difficult to have a conversation. We all ordered meals at the same time. Five meals came out, the last one took another 25 mins to come out. Was not worth the wait.
We chose this place because it is really pretty but would be better for sunset drinks.

However, I specifically requested a booth close to the windows. I asked several times, when boots where empty, for us to change but the waitress refused to change our seat. I just thought it was really bad service considering I asked for a window seat. The experience was not as good as I would have liked it...

Beautiful venue, very nice location, nicely decorated and good location. Food a little average and so many wait staff asking us the same questions over and over. They need to communicate with each other as none seemed to really know what was going on.
