If you not going to spurge for the tasting menu then go another time. We also splurged for the premium wine pairing which was amazing, special and ones we had never had before that went perfectly with the food. Everything was cooked perfectly except the scallop dish which was overcooked. The desert was a nice surprise, beets, horseradish and chocolate.
If you are considering the hotel I would say the following words cute, cozy but dirty...too bad would be a perfect pairing as well.
