Setting-fabulous, food-very good, evening lighting-BLINDING! I was seated at a table that was as far from the kitchen as possible, but facing it, and had a hard time seeing the other diners at the table for the florescent lighting from the open kitchen. It was very distracting and uncomfortable. The four of us in our local party agreed a valance is in order. Apparently it has been mentioned before but to no avail. It gives the space an identity complex. The dining area is relaxing and gently lit but the glaring florescent fixtures overpower that and makes it feel far less cozy. Too bad.
