Service : Excellent ! Beverage : we had house wine and both of the red wine are perfect ! Food: Abit more QA need to take note. Citrus overtake the taste on my lobster end tail section other part is well balanced. Ordered medium rare...on my marble grade 5 but some parts became medium. Perfect scallop and foie gras though 👍👍 Nice view from 57th floorMore

Overrated Bar in KL! I've been wanting to come here as I heard that this is the most luxurious & best bars in KL area. However each moment I'm there always disappoints me. The first experience when I entered the 'Bar', it doesn't feel like...a bar. Instead if feels like a 'Club'. The music played was so loud & more of a clubbing songs. The worst experience there is THE CROWD! The crowd was surprisingly huge with 0....yes "ZERO" social distancing! Infact, my table that was reserved for a deposit of "RM150.00" was given at the last table at the corner. What's even worse about the crowd is that its so crowded that I can't even move my chair & tables! I have to literally turn my chair side ways, and slide my way out of the table just to get to another table full of crowd and repeat the steps until I could get out to the washroom! There were bouncers in the bar (which is good in my opinion) but with zero use since the crowd are everywhere shouting & standing at the pathway where the bouncers couldn't give a dang about it. Price wise it's quite pricey & not worth the value. You could've went to other sky-bar in KL to get a cheaper drinks with proper environment. The only good side about this bar is the Twin Towers view which is the closest view I've ever seen. Just like some comments I read below, they are mostly true. The view is the ONLY thing valuable paying there. The F&B prices, Crowd Control, Environment is just hideous. Will definitely visit to other bars instead of here again.More

My most favorite bar in KL. Been there so many times and always treated well. Staff was always friendly and polite. The vibe is always incredible. Food was good for the small selection, love their pizza and taco. Always book and ask for sitting next...to the window. The view is amazing especially seeing after sunset when all the city lights are on. The restaurant on the side is equally impressive. Very posh setting. The Staff is the best there. So polite and paying attention to details. The food is of course, amazing and beautiful. Really love it.More

The Bar was terrible !!! i was been go there 2 days before . such a bad service in the bar . i make reservations for side window view one week before i go there and they never mention any payment for reservation but in...the end i never get a table near window side they give us the centre table and i really not comfortable at all where i sit. the main point is the waiter said we can't take PICTURES at the bar !!! but why ? why can't we take a picture there ? i don't even know why are they said this !!! we paying money and all are included , i go for the main reason is for the view but in the end so disappointment!!! Might be the worst bar I ever visit. Location very close to Petronas, why destroy its possibility.? Very bad experience for me.. Cannot accept!! Please give priority to customer first...More

I have been to Marini's twice before (in 2019) and the service was great. I just went with my friends on Christmas Eve and it was the exact opposite. 1. Some guests and myself were asked to remove our Santa hats. Understandably, the dress code...states no hats are permitted inside but granted it was the holiday season and people are celebrating, I don't see the point of being so strict about this rule when the hats are not offensive or distracting it any way. It wasn't explained properly by the bouncer either why this wasn't allowed. 2. The waitress insisted for us to order food because it's a restobar. Again, NEVER did I experience this before; only when we complained that we didn't want to did she change her tone and say it is only suggested. Don't insist on something if it's not part of your reservation rules! 3. When multiple people were obviously taking IG Story videos, my friend was asked to stop, again for no reason when the material was for personal use only. No clear reason was given as well, neither did I see the bouncer reprimanding other people. 4.Funny how you mention 'STRICTLY NO SMOKING in the restaurant, lobby, walkways and toilets.' when multiple people were doing this and you weren't stopping them. And yet a damn Santa hat and IG video gets a quick reaction from your bouncer. 5. For a RM220 shisha, you would expect the servers to be faster in replacing the charcoal. It took them at least 30 minutes to do so, with multiple excuses and blaming on other staff on the delay. What was that for?! 6. When we were leaving, a small fight happened in the lift area. Not a single bouncer was in sight to manage the situation and only a female server was there to oversee. Where is the security in all this?! 7. Lastly, CMCO SOPs?! FORGET IT! There isn't any! If you enjoy crappy service for a expensive price, this is the place for you.More

I was in KUL for my birthday and decided to feel like home and celebrate in an Italian restaurant. Marino’s on 57 floor was a great choice. Casual business attire required! Great choices for meals as well for drinks, very professional staff. Quality and high...standards! Attention to detail and made my bday so special. Amazing Italian chef who made me feel like being home, coming to my table for a “ciao”and a complimentary meal!!! Well done and I’ll see you again, hope soon.More

Had the Italian Degustation menu. Environment was great with view of KL. The service was great with detail explanation added with humor to it. Attentive as know what to do even before i asked. The food was fantastic and just right. Occasionally offering off menu...complimentary to add in element of surprise. The desert is a bit contradict as the pistachio should be the main and not the cherry compote but overall nice dessert.More

Told my boyfriend wanted to go rooftop bar. It was a surprise he brought me here. Very nice place to chill with beautiful scenery. Love to go there again one of these days. However, there's a delay for my second cocktail. You should not forget...customer's order. LOLMore

The 3 of us visited on a Saturday evening and we made a reservation for the Cigar Lounge. We were greeted by none other than the manager of the place, Chris. Chris was a great host, very entertaining and also attentive to all guests. The...Cigar Lounge was a perfect room to enjoy soft music and drinks with a great view. Do head on to the 'Bar Room' for louder music and to see where the real action is at. For those on a budget, I recommend coming at 5-9pm(everyday) as they have sunset hours with a tiger glass going for as low as RM15. House wine is approx RM33. Great time!More

If you a looking for place to enjoy the view of the twin towers and city around then this is the place to go. But the buck stops there. Service is pathetic and the staff are arrogant and generally disinterested ! And the food, less...said the better. We had a call to attend so we requested for the WiFi password and were brusquely told that they cannot share the password - when they saw the look on our face they went on to explain that the connection was patchy given the issues with Maxis (internet service provider). However later we asked the service staff they readily shared the password and the connection was stable and fantastic. Again one can argue, no one goes to a bar/ lounge for the internet connection! So the service staff here can be broadly divided into the captains (they wore full grey suits!) and waiters (red shirts with black waist coats). The captains or the senior staff couldn’t be bothered - the one stationed in the outdoor area was playing a game on his phone for at least 2 hours and did not look up even once. We went and asked him for a packet of cigarettes - and he said he would send it albeit without looking up from his phone or maintaining eye contact- we waited for half an hour and then asked the waiter who immediately got it for us. Now the food - we ordered a sausage platter and a cheese platter. Both were inedible to begin with and very badly presented as well - there were two and half sausages cut up into bite sized pieces out of which only the cheese sausage was edible. The cheese were dry and of an inferior quality and were served with one dried rib of fig and one fried each cut up into minuscule pieces. Again no one expects a big portion in such places but poor quality ingredients for the price you are paying is unacceptable. And definitely steer clear of the mocktails. So yes if you want to pay for the view , this is the place to go !!More

I don't think kids would love the place, unless they like drinking and chatting in a bar ambiance with dimmed lights. It's what many grown-ups go for. Not youngsters.

Or you could look at the Menu/Price List online to get an idea of costs. Unfortunately TA doesn’t permit me to give the link in my response.
