Sadly the roast was very poor. The majority of the beef was inedible fat. Beyond disappointed, at the quality- Exceptional over priced.

The service was very good however

Our servers were very helpful and accommodating.
Seafood was very fresh with a generous portion.
We also loved the free flow and espresso martini.

Food quality is not matching with the price. We try tasting menu - it is disappointing in term of taste & presentation. First Oyster is fresh and taste ok, but the egg with pea soup look disguising with yellow and green with foam....... and they egg is tasteless.. the fish come after, it is fresh but it is dry but again look white & green - because it side with peas again....... then the slow cook Oxtail comes - taste is so strong and the side is even stronger with pickles... My daughters has Lamb chop but it taste salty but no favor of lamb. We also order prime beef with Yorkshire budding, but the beef is salty and no meat taste and the pudding is soft (Yorkshire pudding suppose to be harder). The worst part is this restaurant is very noisy (may because it is wooden top) and we need to shout when talking because we cannot hear each other. On conclusion - very unpleasant dinner experience.

As private as it was to sit in a booth with my family I didn’t really think it was easy for service. The waitress could not reach my daughters setting to my left - she was 3rd one in on seat. So I was having to place and remove her plates and pass to the waitress. Not really a fine dining experience when one is assisting the staff. Otherwise pleasant.

I made an online reservation and received confirmation but the receptionist couldn’t find it despite my spelling out my name but seated us anyways as there were no other diners. One other couple came in later but that was it.
Food was pretty and nice to look at but really bland and unexciting. It was my second time eating there with the first time being okay but I wanted somewhere calm to eat lunch so I decided to try again. There will be no third time.
Service was very friendly but quite unprofessional which is not what I am looking for in that nice ambiance and price class...

I also received an email afterwards asking why I didn’t show up for my reservation.

Happy Friday and memorable moment in Statement!
Excellent services, incredible food, great atmosphere and cozy places.
Me and my friend both recommended Newlyn cod - Oyster leaves, shellfish broth. The cod was fresh and the texture is incredible!

I seldom write for the reviews but this was my first time write for STATEMENT!
It’s worth to try and we will be visiting again!

I’d recommend the food but as the restaurant was 75% on a Saturday night I’d suggest that it probably is too expensive for what it is as customers seem to be absent.

Arrived at 19:30 and decided it was too empty to eat so had a cocktail on terrace. Good cocktails but they took twenty five minutes to arrive. Sat down to eat and whilst the restaurant is well designed it lacks atmosphere. The staff are also too rigid...initially very polite but then it seemed like we had annoyed our waitress as she became rather moody. Half the problem was it took forty minutes for our food to arrive and I think this made her feel uneasy as we had asked why it was taking so long in what was a relatively empty restaurant. Luckily the food didn’t dissapoint although at those prices it shouldn’t. The cheapest bottle of wine is still 750 bucks which is rather off-putting even if you can afford it. I would recommend it but with a word of warning.

The service was chaotic and all over the place even though there was hardly any table occupied. We had a total of 4 different people serving us and they still managed to forget our drinks. Food was ok. Beef was delicious. The rest of the food was bland, lacked seasoning and parts of it raw. A real disappointment.

A very pleasant evening. the food was excellent -a very interesting selection of creative and well-presented dishes. The staff were also excellent, managing to be both warm and friendly and cool and professional at the same time. Also very knowledgeable and forthcoming about the dishes. Have already recommended to several friends.

VERY Nice experience! You won't be disappointed. Food is delicious! Staff is very attentive which can be rare in Hong Kong. The ambiance is beautiful and since it's a colonial style building there is plenty of space. The wine list is not spectacular if you're into wine but corkage is only $300. I never write reviews but this was a very nice experience!

Attractive restaurant and comfortable. Service generally good and pleasant, but the waitress gave us the wrong information about what came with the main course. We had a lunch and tried the recommended Roast beef which was very nice if a bit cold. I would return for dinner and give it another go. Pricey.

Very difficult re recommending - I think it is a beautiful room and setting - and very nice to experience. However I was very disappointed in the food. The main reason I chose the restaurant was to have an ENGLISH MEAL.
I wanted good quality simple English dishes - Roast beef and yorkshire pudding, roast chicken with stuffing, roast pork with cracking and apple sauce - duck. Dover Sole, Shepherd's pie, steak and kidney pie, lamb chops, pork chops, steak, liver and onions etc. Basic English food - it was far too fancy. There are quite enough Michelin type restaurants in Hong Kong. Restaurants being too fancy with foam and so on.

Also the two desserts on the menu were not appealing - there are great English desserts if made properly. breading and butter pudding, triffle , crumble, eton mess, i.e.

I think there were only about 4 other tables of customers and plenty of staff. There was a great deal of walking about of the staff - or polishing glasses etc. with their backs turned to the actual customers - so one had to ask 2 -3 times for wine coffee, or the bill.

My opinion it wont last with that kind of menu . A pity as it is a lovely place

Pleasant tasting food, but small portions and almost cold on delivery. Was not accurately represented on the menu descriptions.

Wait staff were inexperienced, never bothered to check in on how we were doing unless we waved them over OR our plates were empty and ready for clearing. They mumbled everything they said and even though it was quiet and empty we both had to ask them to repeat it often.

Pretty room, but zero atmosphere.

Had the set lunch which I found to be good value for well-plated and prepared food. I like the setting of this restaurant because there's a reasonable spacing between tables and the open dining room layout makes it easy for the waitstaff to attend to guests well. The decor feels plush and the booth seating is very comfortable. They also had gluten-free bread, much appreciated.

This is the second time I have visited Statement (the first time for lunch, the second time for dinner). On both occasions I could not get the time I wanted by booking online. And yet, on both occasions, the restaurant was not actually busy at all. I think some tweaking with the online booking system would help with the number of customers.
The restaurant itself is stunning, located on the first floor of the newly opened Tai Kwun heritage complex, and with a bar area overlooking the parade area. The food is delicious: well thought out, beautifully prepared and presented. I would have preferred for it to be a bit hotter... which leads me onto the main issue with the restaurant which I hope will improve over time. The experience of the service staff ranged from average to poor. Too many untimely interruptions, misunderstandings of what is being asked, and slow to respond or not respond in the right way. Nothing glaringly bad, but an evening of small mistakes leaves the customer feeling disappointed. The Aqua Restaurant Group is well known for it's excellent service and I hope this latest addition to their family will soon compare favourably to their other restaurants.

The statement has a great ambience and the venue is very beautiful. Food was good but not exceptional. Service needs to improve in the future, our waitress acted as if she gets a provision when additional food or drinks are sold – such a behaviour is unnecessary in a venue like the statement. Otherwise we spent a pleasant evening.
