After dining at Erini's and having a bad experience my collegues and I decided to a better rated establishment. I was recently diagnosed with Celiac’s Diease and this restaurant EXCEEDED my expectations. For starters the waiter was very pleasant and treated me with respect. He brought me Rice Cakes since I was not able to eat the bread served with... More

This place has steadily improved since it opened, and I'm looking forward to its reopening next to sister restaurant Mistral, also good.

Not once or twice but each one of the 6-7 times we went there. Order the secret chefs tasting menu, and prepare to get blown away. Our favourite menu in the world.

Stupidly expensive. Poorly-conceived food combinations. Sauces, crusts, spices -- all feel very unhealthy. Arrogant staff.

A couple of friends of mine brought me here for my birthday.Three of us had dinner at the chefs table, 12 courses with a wine tasting and a course with fresh shaved truffles. Everything was amazing! There was one course I didn't care for but it is just of personal preference. Loved the presentations and the unique flavor combinations. Especially... More

So, I'll start by saying that we visited there on their last night before moving to a new location, It was a joint birthday for me and a friend and we went with our substantial others, the restaurant was informed of the occasion. We went for the tasting menu. The food was O.K., nothing to write home about, flavor wise,... More

Went for my birthday and sat at the chefs table. Every course was fantastic and well executed. A bit pricey so it is more of a special evening out. They definitely made my evening special. Would Recommend to everyone.

Friendly attentive staff. Unusual presentation of fresh food. Pleasing to the palate but small servings of entree selections. Bar menu looked more inviting but limited seating. Complimentary pound cake at exit was a nice touch and tasty treat the next day.

Did you go to whole foods and buy my food at the salad bar and bring it back to your place and make it look pretty on my plate? Lavender in my glass and Rosemary on my salad doesn't impress me. The cookie on the way out was the best part.

I was impressed with the design and decor of the restaurant immediately. As we were there for a special occasion, the graduation of our daughter, we were expecting something unusual on the prix-fixe menu which had 4 courses. I was not disappointed in some of the courses, but would have preferred more main courses to choose from and fewer courses... More
