It was a one of kind experience being in pitch darkness and not being able to see anything at all. Because of that my sense of hearing, taste, touch and smell were sharper. We had the 3 course surprise meal. I am not a fan...More

We had a great time! It’s fun, different and very educational. In addition to the food, it is a great experience to empathize with people who can not see anything but can feel everything. It's really worth it

This restaurant is unique in that it simulates what it is like to be vision impaired. A vision-impaired server met us in the lobby and led us, conga line-style, through the darkness to our table. We had previously viewed the menu in the lobby so...More

The experience to dine in complete darkness is special and something to never forget. Everything on other senses and eating food becomes a challenge. Several time an empty fork wondering what happened. Service was excellent (Attila) and amazing how he managed to find his way....More
