In the wake of the recent judgement passed by the Supreme Court of India, regarding the restaurants serving alcohol within 500 metres of the highway, we'd suggest that you call the restaurants to ensure whether they serve alcohol before you visit. Thank you.
I fail to see what the other reviewers found so amazing about this place. The decor is plain. The ambiance is jarring with loud unrelated music. The service is common & nothing unique. The menu cards on tablets is pointless as the tablet stopped working couple of times & the stewards have no clue about what needs to be done.
A restaurant is about experience starting with the food. If I wanted decor & music I would go to a Herman Miller showroom or a Bose showroom if not a concert. The food has to be good. If you are going to charge me sky-high prices, the food has to be mind-blowing. The food choices are commonplace. Nothing special about even a single item on their menu. I ordered their bruschetta & broccoli soup. The portions were of course small but the soup had garlic peels floating in it! Frankly, just a week ago we made bruschetta at home which was far better & of course huge in quantity. These 2 items for INR 800. Tuscana, Little Italy & most other joints serve far better food at much less the price. I don't care how the ambiance, music, etc. are (and they were all plain or bad) if the food is abysmal. Rhapsody should quietly shut their restaurant & stick to being a bar (if they are doing a good job there).
Rhapsody is a dinner-only Italian restaurant at the Mariott Courtyard in Chennai. I've been to the place a couple of times for a drink and dinner and have never been disappointed by the food. They have really nice eggplant parmigiana, pesto pasta and salads. The chef is quite friendly and can customise dishes for you in case you are allergic to certain food items. They also have a pretty decent selection of alcohol. The only downside is that sometimes the music they play is not in sync with the ambiance at all. Also, Rhapsody serves the absolute best Tiramisu in town!
