R&J at The Reverie Saigon has emerged from its redesign as a complete multi-level, multi-experience dining destination.

Taking its name from Shakespeare’s epic romance, Romeo and Juliet, R&J stokes a similar passion in lovers of traditional Italian cuisine. Prepared under the watchful eye of a renowned Italian chef, the menu features exquisite Italian cuisine prepared with the finest seasonal produce and presented with flair right in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City.

Mr. Kai Speth, WMC Group Vice President Operations and Business Performance, said the new format and layout at R&J makes for a dining experience that is unique in the city. “There is something quite immersive to it, as within this one venue is such a variety of things happening,” he said.

The new R&J Lounge has a seating capacity of 42 and is open seven days a week from 5pm to midnight. R&J Restaurant, meanwhile, can seat 100 and is open daily from 6pm to 10pm.

Located on the ground and mezzanine levels, R&J Lounge is comprised of a casual dining area where guests can dine at the counter while watching the chefs at work in the open kitchen, and a cozy lounge that is great for an after-dinner drink.

Arranged over three levels, the now distinct R&J Restaurant and R&J Lounge guide guests on a journey from a pre-dinner aperitif through casual or formal dining and, finally, comfortable post-meal relaxation.

The main feature of the lounge’s dining is fresh seafood, accompanied by an extensive list of some of the world’s finest champagnes and sparkling wines.

Examples of some of the seasonal seafood on offer include oysters and lobster from Canada and Vietnam, Oscietra Caviar, soft-shell crab, Alaska king crab, John Dory, and Dover Sole. 

Meanwhile, R&J Restaurant on the B1 level remains the city’s premier Italian fine-dining experience. Though the menu may evoke home-style dining, the ambiance is full of flair and romance, from walls of vibrant Italian mosaics to extravagant candelabras and a whimsical collection of deliberately different dining chairs that celebrate 40 distinctive corners of Italy.
