This place certainly lives up to the hype - it's a full on food loving experience, and yes you do pay a premium for it. With the 11-course menu there were also at least 4 or 5 amuse bouche. Wine pairing was well done and varied, and they kindly provided a gift package of muffins for the next morning.
Food itself was quite varied and managed to fit in a lot of traditional gourmet foods such as escargot, foie gras, caviar etc along with some more contemporary items (I'm more contemporary myself but enjoyed the variety).
Service was impeccable, and the restaurant itself was nice and small. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it for someone searching for a place for a special occasion.
