I won't comment too much on the food, but the little cone with salmon was to die for. My comments are on the experience. This is something that you should try if you have the means. A reservation will probably require a local concierge or...More

IF this restaurant is on your bucket list THEN you must go. Sauces BEST, quality of the fish (sole, salmon, lobster) we found lacking BUT that's probably because we just returned from Tasmania. We don 't think there is a better dish anywhere IN THE...More

When we made the reservation we ordered the chef's tasting menu - 19 courses (just a sampling of each course, but together more than enough,) each prepared exactly right. It's expensive, but there's value in the food, the presentation, and the service. The food was,...More

The well-known French Laundry with top chef Thomas Keller at the helm, does not disappoint an any aspect of the experience. The food is, without question, very unique and extremely creative. It is a minimum nine course tasting menu that leaves you wanting mor of...More

After an unnecessarily complicated reservation process and quite a rude approach in which the guest has to call the restaurant to confirm the reservation (is it too expensive for them to call?), our expectations were quite high. The dinner started in a speedy manner and...More

Reservation is released 2 or 3 months in advance of the date you want. So if you are looking for those dates, best to try to reserve online end Sept. They now ONLY accept ressie online.
