We loved the ambiance and the different dishes we ordered; especially the crispy whole duck shared by two was the best we had ever tasted. The service was great and we will visit again for sure.

While on a business trip, we visited this place. Unlike a few of Wolfgang Puck's other restaurants, this one was a winner. Excellent food (Korean BBQ Strip Steak is a must!), service, and atmosphere.
