I had a wonderful evening at a place that had a great atmosphere and ambiance. The decor was lovely, creating a nice and airy environment. The lighting was perfect, adding to the overall experience. The waiters were friendly and always ready to assist. The hospitality...was top-notch. The highlight of the evening was the live jazz music performed by a talented duet. The singer was not only blessed with beauty but also had an incredible voice. Unfortunately, the audience didn't seem to appreciate the performance as much as I did. The food served was excellent and definitely worth the price. It added to the overall enjoyment of the evening. I had a great experience and would highly recommend this place to others. I'm definitely planning to revisit in the future.More

Disappointing is an understatement. I came in personally took book the right table for my partners birthday during the day when they opened and was assured everything was good and the table was reserved for 7:30pm . Upon arrival we were told that the table...was occupied and had been since 5:30pm. We were then sat down at a table waiting ,right next to the cigar lounge 20-30 min whilst staff were trying to figure out what was going on . There was no explanation in the end just asigned to another table . Food was great , always is there . Upon leaving we were still not happy as we still weren't Givin an explanation only Apologies and that's that good enough , running a restaraunt or any business there needs to be accountability for mistakes and explanations not Apologies. Blows my mind how people think this sort of behavior is acceptable in such a professional bussines . Unfortunately this will be our last time there. Quite sad really .More

Not your every day dining experience as prices are high averaging R700/head for a two course meal, excluding drinks. Food was salty and mediocre, certain menu items were not available. Service is good. At such prices I really would expect a truly fine dining experience....My bell pepper fillet was so salty I sent it back and as my starter (prawn and scallop risotto) was rubbery and salty I refused any additional meal, which to their credit was offered. A disappointing birthday celebration and way over priced for mediocre food.More

It ticks all the boxes for fine dining, beautiful setting, the ambience, attentive staff, live piano music. We were there just before sunset and the views are glorious. I would give it 5 stars, but the food did not match my expectations. I had ordered...Duck, which is my all time favourite dish which never disappoints, but this time I was disappointed.More

We were a group of 5, we were warmly welcomed by Brenda our waitress. We started off with a bottle of Graham Beck which we enjoyed. Most around the table had starters and everybody said it was amazing and savouring each bite. For mains I...had the Chicken Cury and it was delicious. We all had a taste of the dessert which we ordered as the Trifle and Creme brûlée and it was all perfect. We enjoyed our evening immensely.More

I visited Signature last week with my wife. Our hearts sank as soon as we sat down and were presented with a QR code instead of a printed menu. This is a new and depressing trend. Squinting at a menu on a phone simply doesn’t...work. Part of the pleasure of going out for a nice meal is spending time reading and exploring the menu. We like to flip pages back and forward to compare dishes that take our fancy, making a mental shortlist and eventually arriving at a decision. That simply isn’t possible with a digital menu and it ruins the experience. We eventually persuaded a waitress to find an out-of-date printed menu, but that meant we had to cross-reference it with the online version to make sure what we wanted was still available. As for the food, it was a mixed bag. I chose the Mushroom Tart for starter and it was very nice. My wife was disappointed that the Lobster Tails weren’t available because the chef “wasn’t happy with them”, so she chose the Salmon Tartare. Sadly it was tasteless with no seasoning, it was just watery. For main my wife had the Beef Filet which she enjoyed. I had the Beef Brisket. The menu said it was cooked in coconut and served with a coriander chimichurri. It was a nice piece of meat, but it came with gravy and mashed potato – no sign of the coconut or chimichurri. For dessert we decided to share the Apple Pie. When I made the booking online I filled in our dietary requirement – my wife is has an allergy to coconut and I can’t eat nuts. Unfortunately the desert contained both of these ingredients despite them not being mentioned in the menu. When we queried this, we were told that it did not contain nuts or coconut. That was simply not true. To their credit, we did get apologies for the disappointments and they took the Salmon and the Apple Pie off the final bill. On the plus side the live music was a very nice touch.More

I was delighted to have the opportunity to visit this restaurant to meet a business contact for dinner. Easy to find, and an impressive approach along the outside of the restaurant past their open-plan wine store. Inside, the tables by the window offer an incredible...view as the sun goes down. The food was exquisite, the atmosphere perfect. I loved their take on a Greek salad - ingenious, and the Ostrich fillet was delicious, and really well paired with the sides. Overall, excellent food and a really good restaurant. So what lets it down? Firstly, I know we're only just post-Covid but the menu is huge, and having to download it and look on a small phone - particularly the wine list, is frankly ridiculous, and really interrupts the flow of conversation at the table. A physical menu is something to be admired and explored. If I want a touchscreen one, I'll go to Mcdonalds. This is particularly the case with the wine list. I love South African red wine, wanted to explore the menu, but ultimately was being steered by the waiter to take his picks. This was even to the extent that I picked a wine I was really interested in, but was later told it wasn't available and was brought three bottles to the table to consider. Bearing in mind this was precisely what 5 minutes before I'd asked NOT to happen, I found this embarrassing. I know he was likely trying to be helpful, BUT if you're going to do this, don't come to the table with 3 bottles all of which are at least double the price-point of the one I ordered. In truth, that didn't matter to me personally - it was about trying an interesting wine, but it could have placed me in an extraordinarily difficult situation over a business dinner, and I felt this was not the place for somewhat pushy sales tactics, however well-intentioned. All that said, the wine was ultimately very very good.More

Excellent service and unforgettable plates on the menu!! Sushi, risotto , wet aged fillet of beef, and the grilled baby kinglip were all magnificent . Probably one of the best restaurants in Jo’burg.

Ambiente, Service etc. were good. Presentation and quality of food also excellent, only the duck trio that we ordered was cooked a little too long (duck breast). In addition, we heard some live music while dining.
