Excellent bands but overly pricey drinks and snotty attitude. The only thing that made me come was free mojitos and the perspective of seeing a bit of latino music and dancing salsa. I have been to other places as good but much, much, cheaper.

How is this restaurant not more popular than it is? I've eaten in lots of starred restaurants around the world and this could count as my top 3 mostest favoritest meal ever ever ever. The taste of the octopus, ceviche, suckling pig, prawns, brioche and flan casero still linger in my mouth and I can't wait to go again. Also loved their cocktails - had the basil coriander mojito and the cocktail that's served in a coconut.

Unico is great! I went on a Friday night with some friends expecting a live chilled out relaxing night. At first we were greeted with top 40 (gasp!), but by 11:30, pop EDM disappeared in favor of deep beats with a live saxophone and vocalist. The dance floor was packed so it was difficult to dance, but we had a great time. The crowd was mostly well-dressed expats from 20-45 years old. As broke uni students, we couldn't experience the legendary food, but it all looked amazing. Definitely recommend. Unico is the "unico"!

Meh. Food was good, of course! but i had three major problems. 1) on the sign outside, the ad said 2 sparkling mojitos for 80 RMB, all day. This is not true, as our waiter later told us. On Tuesdays, they're free from 8:30-9:30, and then 2 for 80 after 9:30. Annoying, but whatever, typical mistake, especially here in China. And we just waited til 8:30 to get a couple free ones, at least. 2) They served us sparkling water, which is gross, but whatever. It was 90 degrees outside so I'll take whatever they give me. 3) The bill comes and the water is on the check. What? We never ordered the water, it was just given to us. Plus, they were asking 80 RMB (for water we hadn't ordered). Are you joking me? 4) We finally complained enough and had the manager take the water off the check, but honestly, I probably won't come back. Not worth the experience for the money they were asking for, and I hate having to argue my way into acceptable service.

Went there late one evening for drinks and some snacks. While the decoration of Unico is lovely everything else was shockingly bad. The drinks seemed tasty when described in the menu, but were not drinkable. The waiter then argued with us! So rude. And the 3 desserts that we had were not good at all. I was truly shocked by how bad Unico was.

Fabulous restaurant, one of the best in Shanghai. From the moment you walk in, you can enjoy the wonderful design including red leather chairs. It is a restaurant deserving of a Michelin-starred chef (Mauro Colagreco). The French-Mediterranean food is divine. The red mullet was well-cooked and tasty. I thought the chocolate ganache was fantastic. Very attentive service. The negative thing is the very high prices.

Marvelous bar, Unico exudes flair and elegance. Superb cocktails, Unico is one of the most trendy bars in Shanghai. In the printed edition of CW, Unico does not have a STAR (2013 CW Reader's Choice Award Winner). But Unico won an award. In fact, several winners do not have STAR next to their name in the print edition. And several who did not win in 2013 still have stars. I believe that the CW editors should be responsible to not overlook such things in the printed edition of CW.

This restaurant is delicious. The meat is nice and tendor and all of the food there is as good as its gonna get. The prices are reasonable for middle class and high class citizens. The service is great. They have a bar with an excellent bartender who can serve you almost whatever cocktail you want. Even the bread is really good. This is one of the best restaurants I have ever been in my whole life.

Unico is a really nice place. I had a great time with my friends, drinking amazing cocktails, listening great music. We also loved that musicians walked among visitors while playing a musical instrument, it brings something special to that lovely place on the bund.

Judging by the entrance area the venue is beautiful. Unfortunately for this review, the over-styled under-cultured people managing the door are allergic to customers and money. Despite our best efforts, attempts to secure a 4 person table on what was clearly a slow night, failed. Offers of direct payment on a table charge were refused. Requests to speak with manager were met with derision and haughty attitude. Note to management: Not all your potential customers are capable or willing to consume liquor by the bottle, but that doesn't mean they don't have plenty of money to spend. Inflexible policies harm your image and your income. But judging by our reception, this image is one your people have been taught to cultivate and you wipe your asses with money. On the bright side, there's Glamour Bar right across the street. A place you can actually go inside, spend money and enjoy nice treatment by the staff and management.
