I went to this place for a business lunch with my colleagues. The service was excellent. Not too crowded. Amazing views of the city. Menu a bit limited.

I visited LV again for lunch with colleagues after I had not been there for a while. Service was really bad. There was almost noone around in a place that used to be pretty crowded at Lunch time. But still, service was slow. The waitress had no clue what she was doing. Didn't wait until we finished our order before... More

The decoration is ok , cozy a bit , but too dark that you can't see the menu we had to turn our phone flashes to see what was written. The food wasn't that good, For starter we had the fired calamari which they were so chewy we had to swallow them without chewing because we couldn't even cut them... More

The restaurant located at the 28th floor is quite a reserved location ideal for a dinner for two. The service is good, the food amazing: I tried the sirloin and was really delicious!! As dessert I can suggest the Nutella Cheese Cake and the Chocolate Fondant. The cost is in the average of similar restaurants in Doha. The place is... More

Okay food. Nice views high up in the Tornado Tower. I would still go again if only for the views. It's a nice pretentious sort of place. Seen many job interviews taking place there oddly enough. So if your a job hunter, you know where to go.

Great evening had by myself and my partner. Greeted by friendly staff on arrival, were sat in a very quiet and dark area but were moved without drama when asked to move somewhere more light. Food was as the menu described and cooked very well. Very friendly and knowledgeable manager was on hand to answer any questions we hand. Very... More

While this place is not always full for dinner, it does have wonderful service and fabulous food. We went last night (for the third time) and the salmon was perfectly cooked and the artichoke salad was inventive and delicious. I've been for lunch as well - they do a three course business lunch - which is also very good.
