Very very rude staff. I sat outdoor where there were no tissues hence i took tissues from one of the tables inside on which the phillipino lady at the cashier said "Sir you are taking ALL their tissues" :D. Like seriously?. I told her is this how you treat your customers? Pathetic customer service. She was not even apologetic. Highly not recommended. Food is also not worth of price.

My husband and I were in/out residents of Dubai from 2008 to 2014 and during this period would go to Piechic once or twice a year for fine dinning and extraordinary ambience. We were exciting to come back after 2-year absence and had dinner there last Saturday. What a shocking disappoitment! What has happened? The food has gone from world-class dinning to a pub food and the service is non-existent! We had a drink at the bar before dinner, which took ages before it actually arrived. After we were seated, our waiter, who said he would take care of us, disappeared for good after he informed us he would bring our starters soon. The starters eventually arrived 20min later and served by some one else. After we would finished our meals the plates would be endlessly waiting to be cleared away. Also, as no waiter would bother to come to our table unless they brought our meals, we ended up pouring wine ourselves throughout the evening. The food is not worth mentioning - enourmous portions of extremely average and tasteless "something". I ordered my favourite scallops as a starter and I am not sure what I was eating. As a main course I had my favourite grilled lobster, which was quite dry and the sauce was tasteless. I didn't dare to order dessert! The experience was too bad for words. We are very sad such a great restaurant has gone so dramatically bad. We will never come back again.

I just bought a handbag from sienna accessories when I visited The Dubai Mall and it's been my go to bag for weeks now. I then found out that they have an online store at https://www.siennaonline.com

Signed up just to be the first person to review this place! One word - wow!!! Everything from the deco to the coffee, and the service. Absolutely amazing. This is MY Stomping Grounds! :) surprised that the Time Out crew haven't given this place the recognition it deserves.

We have eaten at this restaurant a couple of times recently. On paying the waiter always asks directly for a tip, either added to the credit card bill or cash! We find this very off putting, especially as the service is pretty poor. Tips are usually given on a voluntary basis, so being asked like this leaves a bad taste in the mouth. (We always tip wherever we go.). The food is good however.

I am really shocked with the response I got when I came in with my sisters to the restaurant at 12:30 and wanted to have some desserts and cup of coffee. The waiter told me you are not allowed to order desserts only you should place an order for main courses first then you can order desserts. You think am joking go to the resturant and get shocked with that policy !! I mean what kind of a restaurant that forces people to have something they are not willing to have. Not to mention, I informed one of the guys wearing a suit about this but apparently he did nothing. I decided then to leave. For a world class restaurant showing such poor attitude I am astonished. I will definitely not come back and will let my friends and family know about this policy. Yea your food might taste good as I have heard, but too bad your attitude to your clients is not.

This review is spot on! I went to check this venue out with my friend based on this article: http://gulfnews.com/life-style/music/hobo-the-new-hipster-hangout-in-dubai-1.1683984#.V7K9v0JCgN4.facebook and it couldn't be further from our expectations. In there it says: "Come as you are" - and as we approach glammed up girl standing behind velvet rope, she said to my friend that flat sandals are not normally allowed but they will make an exception this time! And to label this venue "hipster" is a total joke and offence to all the hipsters out there (if they can care).
