在我来到这家饭店以前,我很少经历一个只有Omakase的饭店。一般michellin都会给单点的选项,这家很特殊,只有Omakase的选择。 总体来讲,他的食物花了很多心思,但没有惊艳的地步。我无法感到有什么特别惊艳的食物。当然它的价格也相当亲民。 六道菜吃下来却没有印象,十分遗憾。 一人和wine pairing,一人喝水,252 in total,包括小费。

The 6 course dinner (with an extra sample of foie gras) was fantastic! Chef Naomi Pomeroy was there, which made it extra special. The communal dining was fun, meeting a lovely group from Georgia. The wine was yummy also. All in all, a very nice Wednesday evening spent with great food & company!

Decided to go to Beast for brunch with our son home from college for the weekend. Delightful tasting menu, 'even cauliflower tasted good'. Seemed like we might leave a bit hungry, but the courses, though small, were rich and flavorful and we left satisfied. Loved too that although meat is the main attraction (based on the name), vegetables appeared and... More

This place should be the capital of flavor country. Naomi plays her kitchen like a conductor in a symphony. Each round is like a taste bud explosion.

I was expecting this to be very good, but not amazing. It exceeded my expectations. I thought that the shared/communal tables would make me uncomfortable, but I felt like I had a lot of personal space, and it wasn't an issue. The server and wine guy were both very knowledgeable and friendly. The courses were timed appropriately, so it didn't... More

This is a small restaurant where you sit family style at two long tables. Expect to be sociable and talk with your neighbors. The meal is fixed times, fixed price and fixed menu, with "substitutions politely declined." We had seven courses along with two small "bonus" tastes. All courses were small but elegantly presented and had absolutely amazing blends of... More

With a name like beast you'd think this is a meat centric place. Not! Sure this fixed price 5 course meal did have one serving of beef but that was about it. I'm not saying the meal was not good just no beasty. The meal was great though. Beautiful, with great sauces and the service was great too. Just 24... More

I came here with three friends. You sit at large tables with other guests. The menu is set, and you eat what they serve. The food was good, but very little meat and small portions (I mean small). Many of the dishes included lots of different things all mixed up together, and in my opinion didn't really go together. The... More

We dined here with family at the 8:45 seating. Arrived about 5 minutes early and waited outside for about 10 minutes. Upon entering found the atmosphere is unique. Was promptly seated. Dinner was presented well and very good. The server explained each course. The only negative was that from my seat at the table it was hard to hear the... More

Three-course brunch that was both spectacular to the eyes as much as the taste! Caring and attentive service with frequent refills of coffee and water. We decided to do wine parings with each course which enhanced the flavor further. What an amazing restaurant!
