“Lovely restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Great food, great service, great ambiance . Fine dining. The place for a special evening for two or business or both. One down note was a family with small children, but they were gone early in our dinner. Service was attentive and helpful. Will definitely return.

“Underwhelming”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Needed to make a reservation (understandable) for dinner for four, and when we returned at the appointed time, we were not able to go into the restaurant. We were invited to wait in the lounge where for 15 minutes we were ignored, no one approached us as we sat at a dirty table for a drink - at all. When we were finally seated in the dining room, the food service was "oh so cute" but totally on automatic pilot. Food very overpriced (we live in California so we know about this) and we came away with a less than average experience. Would not return.

“Will never eat here again.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

My husband and I were celebrating our 2nd anniversary and decided to eat at this restaurant for the first time. Based off of the reviews it was worth taking a chance. Initially we received a friendly greeting from the host and hostess however after we were seated that's when we were signaled out. The waiter nor the waitress introduced themselves and by the way we had 3 servers. The waitress dropped some mash potatoes on the table as she was serving my husband, apologized but left it there. That was unacceptable however we did not let that spoil our appetite. Normally 4-5 star restaurants who care about their customers get feedback about the service at the end but that never happened here. Every table received truffles at the end along with the check except us. It could have been our race, not sure but we asked another server about it and of course we never saw the other 3 servers. Maybe they were embarrassed and did not want to face us but this was not a good experience. As a customer service manager for a fortune 500 company my expectations are always set high, I only give 100% to satisfy my customers, I critic every restaurant but never give a review. I wish this experience was different and i could provide positive feedback but not in this case. This may be a long review however this may help someone else if they are trying to make a decision about this restaurant.

“Will avoid in the future!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Not sure what has happened at this popular restaurant, it use to be good. 5-star prices, 2-star food! Waiter was stuffy and quite full of himself, real turn off. For the same price there are wonderful 5-star restaurants in the area. Waste of our time and money! Didn't finish our meal, just paid and left, won't be back!

“Great food; great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

You could be in NYC or Chicago; great food and service and fine dining at its best. The problem here is the hotel and the varied guests that walk in with crying babies. We were here during Easter/Passover week and not one but two screaming babies accompanied our fine dining experience. What are these parents thinking...obviously not about the other diners.
