As I have stated in my other reviews, over the last few weeks I have eaten at Michelin star restaurants Bouchon, Madera, La Toque, Restaurant at Meadowood, French Laundry, State Bird Provisions and Saison. I can tell you other than Bouchon, this is the worst restaurant among the lot. Firstly, to be fair, it is a great restaurant compared to... More

The location is great, and the staff were friendly on arrival. Our table was just in from the entrance, and we felt left out, like we had the cheap seats - and all the good ones were in the main area. There were all couples in our area, and perhaps it would have been more lively if they sat bigger... More

I found that some of the dishes really stuck out more than the others. but overall I enjoyed the meal greatly. The servers were very attentive and friendly. I found that most of the dishes were well thought out. Plum Sno-Cone with lime - to clean the palate is my guess Smoked Egg Yolk with Cavier - my most favourite... More

This is supposed to be foodie paradise, but radical presentations and micro portions was lost on me. More expensive than a French Laundry, but not nearly as great. Limited atmosphere to distract you from food in front if you. Wines selected for wine pairings were ordinary. My low opinion might be a function of age and experience, as my daughter... More

Great menu, great flavours, great presentation. It might sound strange, but I guess I was expecting more. Try to eat at San Pelligrino Top 50 in preference to Michelin 3 star as it usually suggests innovation or something unique. Coi is amazing food, but somewhat typical of a degustation. There were no bad courses and no food negatives, but on... More

I have never been a fan of vegetables, but chef Patterson creates real culinary masterpieces using beets (yes, beets), greens and many other I have never met before. Wine pairing is extremely well thought, with strange wines that are perfectly suited for the food

The courses varied from excellent (trout) to acceptable (pigeon) to poor. If this is pushing the boundaries of creativity, I missed it, since some of the flavors seemed to be fighting each other rather than being in harmony. Likewise, the portions went from acceptable to barely there. Although most of the service staff was OK, the sommelier did not discuss... More

Still good enough for those looking for special places. Can't figure out how to use all the 100 characters required for review...

Had high expectations (due to Michelin recommendation), but the experience was mediocre. The menu was exactly the same as posted online the week before (as if the chef does not bother scouring the markets regularly for prime ingredients). Many of the flavors were pretentiously combined and some were just plain odd. Small portions, but thankfully we were full by the... More

The only downside was the smell in the restaurant, but otherwise some amazing wines (we had 8 different wines recommened by the excellent somelier)
