Dined on Friday night and had the Juliet 5-course. Flavors were overall good but the minestrone soup was not hot, only lukewarm plus the pasta was chewy. My companion and I loved the molten chocolate cake with ice cream. Overall it was an average experience for an above average price point. Would not suggest the Juliet.

Manager and employees checked on us constantly. So much, that it was hard to continue conversations. Likely will not return but liked the decor.

This is an excellent restaurant providing Italian haut cuisine, with all the theatre required to set the very best apart from the best. A very good wine selection with knowledgable staff on hand to advise. The decor is sumptuous and comfortable. A very pleasing singer and trio offer soothing lounge entertainment which gently compliments the dining experience. An Italian Maitre D and head chef complete the experience with their welcome.
So good we’ve booked for our last night- recommendation indeed for a city that has some of the best native cuisine in the world.

Recently had dinner at R&J and is was first class. Being connected the The Reverie hotel we didn’t expect anything less. Beautiful presentation, excellent wine selection, delicious food, what more could you want? The restaurant is Italian fine dining. We celebrated a birthday and the staff made it very special. Thanks again to you all. Not the cheapest place to eat, but worth every penny! (£300 for four of us inc good wine). Ps try the ragu spaghetti, slow cooked 12 hours, scrumptious!

We were a family of 3 with a teenage daughter.

Fantastic atmosphere in this subterranean restaurant. Floor B1 of The Reverie Hotel. The maitre d’ is from Bologna and the Chef is also Italian so the food is authentic.

Every thing about the food was of a very high standard, beautifully prepared and the service is exceptional.

One of us had the special Easter menu, which was wonderful. The others had a la Carter and both enjoyed it.

The Tiramisu was made at the table, the first time I have seen that.

Would we go again? Yes, yes, yes!

I absolutely love the food here. Thank you very much to the manager (Michele) for treating us very well. We would definitely come back here again and hope for some more special treats from the head chef.
