“Good Food, but Not Sure if It's Worth the Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2011

We made reservations for a Friday dinner. The staff was extremely attentive & offered recommendations. They brought out some complimentary starters. The bread was very good (we had to ask for more since there were only 5 small slices) and came with roasted garlic, olive spread, and a bean paste. You could tell the ingredients were all fresh. Our appetizer (forgot what it was, but it had goat cheese) was delicious. My husband ordered pork cheeks that were pretty good, but on the salty side. My dish, the duck, was amazing. The skin was nice and crispy, the confit complemented the duck well, and the crispy bed of potatoes was so good. The portions were, however, small. We were still hungry when we were done, but opted to not get dessert since our bell was already over $100. Yes, the ingredients, service, and food were good, but I guess we just weren't willing to pay a hefty price and still walk out wanting more.

“Fabulous, what I expected and more...chef is brilliant! Staff very accommodating!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2011

I had been looking so forward to this one and chef did not disappoint. They even brought a bottle of sample wine from the office as they thought this was what I had described and they got it right! I took the only other bottle they had with me..and now have this wonderful zin in my cellar from Calif.

We will be back and tell everyone we know to give it a try!

Thank you for taking such good care of us Jay and your team!!!

“A personal favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2011 via mobile

Espuma is a personal favorite when we are in town. The pork cheeks are tender, the mushroom and black truffle ravioli melts in your mouth. Did I mention the cocktail flights they offer? Delicious! Great for a small group or a romantic dinner for two.

“Extraordinary dining for the senses”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2010

My husband and I try a new restaurant for our anniversay each year and after 33 years it seems it becomes more difficult to top the previous year but this year we managed to have an experience that will remain on the top of our "Best anniversary dinnners ever" . From the moment you enter the bar area and move to the dining room you are taken in to a palette for the eyes, music is just at the right volume and very pleasing. The wait staff is extremely accomodating and knowledgeable and the menu selections are truly unique for the area. The presentation of the food is impeccable and the ruby slipper specialty drink was great! The appetizers and entrees were fabulous and this whole experience was an experience for all your senses. We can't say enough about our experience and will share our enthusiasm with friends and family to return frequently.
