From the food to the service (Chris), stellar experience. Even the speed (or lack thereof) that they prescribe to between courses seemed planful, strategic. Along with the paced approach to serving the courses, the amount of food was perfect. By the end of the meal,...More

Love this place ❤ The food is outstanding not to mention the great atmosphere! Our waiter John was very knowledgeable in regards to the 4 course menu and he also really knows his wines! The rum cake is absolutely delightful!

Expensive but awesome experience. Attention to detail is the name of the game at this restaurant. This is a very expensive dining experience. But, if you want to splurge and experience the best in dining this is the place. You only live once.

I think I actually remember them identifying a couple items that way but am not sure. When I called to confirm our reservation, they specifically asked about anything they should know regarding our diets.

No entertainment. For 2 people with a couple of glasses of wine and tip, just over $200, really a steal compared to places in NY, Chicago, SF, etc. Very pretty courtyard
