This isn't so much a restaurant but an experience. It's not a place you would go to regularly. I wouldn't want to. It would spoil it. It truly is fine dining and I had a wonderful time. Expensive, yes. But you get what you pay...More

Hello, wine is not included, as I recall if you have the wine flight their are two options one being nearly as much again as the food price. Of course you can always buy wine by the glass. Hope this helps.
