I don't normally write restaurant reviews but I can't let this pass. Thursday night, group of 9. Sat there for literally 45 minutes and NOBODY took the order, despite constant reminder to the waiters.. Got the menus, 4 books which we had to share! Fine, we ordered (each placed his/her own order). It took sometime for the food to arrive which i could understand as it's not a set menu. But when one of the waiters told us aggressively on our faces "No Sharing" I had to ask for the manager!!!!! We're sharing the appetizers simply because everybody was sooooo hungry. We arrived at 8:00 PM, it's past 10:00 PM and main courses were not served. The place wasn't packed at all. I called the manager, got no help! Didn't even know what we're complaining about.. Got the bill, and it's 300 AED more than we ordered. Had to ask them to change!!!!! the complete experience was a DISASTER! I would NEVER come back and recommend the place. Nice place but has the most crappy service! I love Le Meridien but such restaurant must be re-evaluated. It will just mar its reputation.
