My wife and I recently celebrated our 10th anniversary and wanted to do something special. We love fine dining and we love wine pairings. We thought a tasting menu with a wine pairing would be best, so I started looking...... reviews were good so we chose Asta... big mistake! The service was very professional and friendly, and the sommelier was well educated in the wines she was serving. It was a shame that the music was too load to hear most of what she was saying. We love trying new things so we opted for the 8 course tasting with wine paring... by the 4th or 5th course we were both laughing at the folly of coming here. There was nothing bad about anything, but to best understand you have to know the story of The Emperor's New Clothes. It was supposed to be amazing so many treat it like it was amazing but it was not. It's a shame because it really has everything needed to be very special, but the food was mediocre at best. Our only other issue was when I mentioned that I did not appreciate being served a small glass of beer (WINE PAIRING) with one of the courses, and suggesting instead that a thick smokey red would have been better with the beef, the sommelier was visibly insulted. It would have been just as easy for her to agree with me and keep her irritation to her. Let me end by saying that I never write reviews (good or bad), but this was a $400.00 dinner for two.
