Visited this club for a lunch with friends. The ambience is good, meals are served quick. However, price does not reflect performance. You are here for the ambience and experience, not for the food. So if you expect a tasty food you shall find elsewhere.

The bar was great and uncluttered, no reflection we should have eaten there. The restaurant was like a zoo, seemingly hundreds of waiters running around, but no one took the time to ask for our wine selection until we had eaten half our main course....More

Clubby, traditional , old school, classic and classy. I loved it! Do not leave here without trying the flaming baked Alaska. And btw, my Chicken Paillard was divine. Great service, great atmosphere, great food. I understand the tour of the wine cellars are great! GO!!

You can, but you really should stick for the meal. You can go low key with a burger, if that is your thing. Good people watching, great atmosphere.
