Myself, husband, and our 2 close friends came to Gustu with reservations at 6:30 PM and arrived early at 6:15, prior to the restaurant opening. We were promptly seated and offered cocktails rather than having to wait for the restaurant to open, which was much...More

We had the 9 course tasting menu with wine pairings and really enjoyed it. Most of the courses were very good. All were interesting and innovative. The flavors were often bold and intense. One or two of the snacks were underwhelming. They were also very...More
