Visited the restaurant after a VERY long day of travel. I did feel a tad under-dressed as it was filled with the cool and the slick. Having said that the welcome was warm and the food was good. As a vegetarian I often struggle eating...More

It's just a boring place. All anyone in and around the place talks about is that it is "the Iron Chef's restaurant.". Nobody mentions the food. I guess everyone just wants to be seen and they just say it's good because they want to be...More

My wife and I enjoyed a pre-movie dinner here on a Friday night. The food was wonderful - the manchego with truffled lavender honey was her perfect food! The braised short rib flat bread and Wagyu beef were exceptional. Our service, likewise, was fantastic -...More

I came here for lunch yesterday and really enjoyed the fantastic food and atmosphere. I had the asparagus with poached egg and truffle shavings, the lamb meatballs (which were maybe the nicest meatballs I've ever had) and the salad with avocado and fava beans. The...More

Is this a kid-friendly restaurant and does it have a children's menu? We will be traveling with our four grandsons ranging in age from 9 to 15.
