I owe this place a long-overdue apology.
We came here back in 2010 and the food and service were some of the best I've ever enjoyed. (And to give you some background, I'm a serious foodie from New Orleans who lives in LA and have been to some pretty terrific restaurants in both of those places, as well as Paris, New York and London.) The service here was so kind and impeccable: they even wrote our names in chocolate on our dessert plates!
Unfortunately, one of our party of three (who was from a country I won't name, where the tipping situation is apparently different) only left 5% tip on her check. Agh! When we found out afterward, and explained it to her, we all felt terrible. (Although two of us left 20% on our checks.)
Anyway, it was a great experience and probably this sort of thing happens all of the time, traditions being so different between countries, but I'm glad TripAdvisor is here so I can apologize, regardless.
Thanks for a wonderful night we'll never forget!!
