Great view, good service! However, the food was very disappointing - all dishes were bad. I am so surprised because this is my third time at BiCE and I had always enjoyed my food (especially the lobster pasta). Please fix the food; hopefully just a cv19 issue.

I have eaten regularly at BiCe in New York -

This restaurant was a disappointment mostly because of the service. The waitstaff needs to be retrained on service points and steps.

They failed to refill wine glasses, and then when I did it myself - they grabbed the bottle out of my hands.

They served a bottle of wine at a temperature where it was too hot - and when I asked for an ice bucket to cool it - they delivered a half full bucked with no ice but cool water - which wasn't really up to the task at hand.

They served pasta too cold

They failed to clear the dinner plates for 30 minutes even after the bill was paid - I had to tell them to clear up the mess.

For the cost of the meal - better service is expected.

The table wasn’t laid when we arrived, they didn’t have a table ready for us when we arrived and we were placed on a table for 6 people when there was only 2 of us. We asked for outdoor seating ahead of time and they didn’t fulfill this. The service was poor, we asked for a sweet cocktail and the waiter pulls his phone out and Google’s sweet cocktails in front of us! I was under the impression for a nice restaurant they would be able to think of a few cocktails. The food was fine but nothing outstanding and I thought it was incredibly expensive for the service we received. I wouldn’t go back there again or recommend it

Der Abend war perfekt für uns. Wir hatten ein sehr gutes Essen. Auch das Personal war sehr kompetent und hatten ein einwandfreies hygienische Verhalten.
Lediglich der Restaurantleiter nahm es mit dem Mund Nasenschutz nicht so genau schade.

The service and views were fantastic. However the food was extremely disappointing! I ordered a salad for a starter, which was basically a bowl of lettuce leaves, no sweet potato as stated in the menu and only one piece of avocado. My husband ordered the ribeye steak, which was so fatty and chewy and he actually said it was the worse steak he’s had in his life.

It’s the location you go for here - outdoor seating to see the Fountain Show with a first class view. Food is good but a little on expensive side. This is for a Treat Night. Service great. It’s mainly fish so make sure you like
