We are here for a conference and our guide brought us to this restaurant. We had a 7 course meal. The servings were bite size but tasty. Presentation was very good, it reminded me of a competition like masterchef!

We so enjoyed dinner at Wink. Our server Debra took such great care of us. The foie gras appetizer was wonderful. The wine recommendations were spot on. The duck breast was prepared perfectly. A nice selection of menu choices. I would definitely return.
