The tasting menu had beautiful and nice amounts of 6 items, all fabulously cooked. Exceptional value at $99. In NYC, it might easily have been 2x or 3x that. Great atmosphere and service. Exceptional meal

There is no off night at L'toile as the owner/chef runs the kitchen putting out impeccable food night after night. The dining room and patio is so romantic. I would hope to stumble on a restaurant like this on my travels.
