Hello - we are looking for a restaurant "environment" for a special meeting between employee of 45 years, wife and the business boss - to discuss futures. Is there a setting that is not too noisy - and is comfortable?

Yes, absolutely. One of the virtues of this restaurant was that the tables were spaced far enough apart to have a conversation.

Both food and wine menus are individually curated based on the occasion, with a focus on contemporary seasonal eating, eclectic and rare wines, as well as a range of other premium beverage offerings. The iconic spaces, including the atrium bar, private dining room, and balcony room are exclusively available for dinners, private parties, weddings and corporate events.
