Food was ok, tasteful. Service was ok. It’s hard to have a fully understandable conversation when there’s a language barrier. Outside sitting was the best with the Dubai fountain amazing views. Price was a bit high for what you get.

What happened with BICE? You are a world well recognized fine restaurant and its completely unacceptable that in Dubai you have such a poor service. Missing plates in the table, bringing incorrect food, service attitude. Pushing people out by start moving chairs cleaning and passing garbage bags next to the table while we are eating? Not good!!
Your foo, overall still good, please fix your service!

The food was excellent and the chef even came out and checked on us with his warm Italian welcome. However, the high temperature and humidity of the restaurant were unbearable. The staff explained that the A/C problems were due to Souk Al Bahar/ Emaar facilities management, but it cut short an otherwise lovely evening.

Absolutely phenomenal food and cocktails. We went over after visiting the burj khalifa. They have an amazing view of the water show from their second floor balcony!

They offered several dishes that were not on the menu, including octopus. It was terrible, tough, tasteless. They have never eaten worse than octopuses. The tuna tartar, which was also not on the menu, was ok but nothing special. It would have been better to have taken the dishes from the menu, perhaps they would have been better.
The view of the fountains in the restaurant is great! The service is also super, we were transferred to the table closer to the fountains as soon as it was free. Rating 4 for the service because the waiter offered dishes not from the menu. It's just that if he offers them, he must be sure that they are edible. The food of course spoiled the overall impression of the restaurant.

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.
