The restaurant manager Thomas made a mistake, canceled our reservation without our consent and gave our table to someone else. We held the reservation with a credit card in advance, but they would not take us. My husband was taking me there for Mother's Day and also my birthday. Thomas was rude, disrespectful and made up different stories. He was not apologetic or even tried to remediate the situation. He claimed to be the owner, but apparently is not. You would expect a restaurant of this caliber would treat their customers better, especially when they make a huge mistake. He's a horrible person and ruined my birthday/Mother's day dinner.

I loved all the courses, but my favorites were probably the oyster, muscle, and scallop dishes! They were accommodating to my request about not eating red meat. Luckily, there was only 1 course that was steak, so they just substituted abalone for it. Heh, I felt bad for my date who was wishing there were bigger portions. I was satisfied at the end of the meal, not being too stuffed, but he was still a tad bit hungry once we finished our dinner (guys though...what can you expect?) Service was what you'd expect of a fine dining establishment. Didn't get to try the wine pairing, but will definitely try it next time!

12 courses, delicious every one! Some wines I never had that were perfectly paired. Fyi 4 of 12 were delicious deserts.

For omnivores, it is a sublime treat. Don't bother if you are a vegetarian, it is a total waste of money. If there is a vegetarian in your party, it's not even worth it to tag along.

One of the best meals I've had - just stunning food and great service. You MUST sit at the chef's counter, though, that's where all the magic happens. The wine pairing was worth the extra $45 - they were all spot-on. Cannot wait to go back.

Extraordinarily creative and delicious dining experience that is cooked with incredible precision. If you're a foodie, this is a must visit restaurant. The chef, James Syhabout, is a veteran from internationally renowned restaurants, El Bulli and the Fat Duck.
