Visited with my wife for our anniversary. I can't describe how great the dinner was. We chose the 5 course special classic taster menu and didn't regret it. The food was quite simply outstanding and the service just as good. The wait between each course was quite long, but understandably so, given the quality of the food. Each course was... More

We went for restaurant week after my father suggested it. It was truly worth it all. It wasn't just a meal, our lunch was a three hour journey with people who genuinely love food and serve you only the best. Every waiter was polite and highly knowledgeable about their craft and dishes. The butter was incomparable to any other we've... More

My Husband & I were lucky enough to eat here for his birthday last Saturday. It was fantastic, never had food like this before. We both had 5 course menus with the pairing wines but I had the vegetarian my husband the meat. We enjoyed 3 Amuse Bouche before the main event, the first was a tiny basil ice cream... More

My advice? Spend the money, and never look for it again...you won't regret it. We have enjoyed this in both its current form and when it was named for Chef Francois's mother. Both times the food was exceptional and creative, but to make that the only metric would be to ignore the comprehensive effort to create an EXPERIENCE. From the... More

Formerly known as Ivy, this restaurant lives up to its michelin rating. Has some nice tricks, but once you have been there a few times you know what to expect and it loses some of its pizzazz

Food is indescribably creative and carefully assembled. An experience not only for the palate but for your eyes. The combination of flavours and decorative elements are a pleasure to try. Nicely and soberly decorated. Service is excellent. Wines as expected for the quality of the manu. Of course has won the attention and recognition of Michelin awards.

I simply love the easy going way this 2 star restaurant is advertising itself with. "You're just as welcome wearing sneakers as you are fully dressed up." The food is great either way! ;-)

Start was great, first dishes were excellent. So yes: food is really great. After some dishes all went bad... toast with tomato with bloody mary as a dish (?), disorganized waiters, staff was slow, wine was just OK and expensive, cheese platter was to much, to salty and texture was not great. It took us until 02:00 o'clock to finish... More

We had dinner at FG Restaurant. Why? Just to have a great experience with great food and wine after a year we don't want to forget, but we're glad it's over. We picked the 7 course menu with a additional truffle dish. From start to end it was amazing. Staff were friendly and helpful. It wasn't formal, they even say... More
