“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

I was so excited about visiting MPWs and trying the twice done fries. It was really uneventful, the fries were poor and the experience not worthy of a return visit. The maitre d' did try her best.

“Can't go wrong...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

What a superb dining experience. Great setting, good atmosphere and very attentive and amusing staff. We were well advised and had a beautiful bottle of Malbec (which was priced very reasonably) and the Chateaubriand for two. Yes, it was expensive, but it was very good value for the quality of the experience and the food. One quibble - the description of the restaurant celebrates a "wall of fire" - yet what one encounters is somewhat more prosaic - it's a fire in a wall.

this is certainly the place you celebrate that special event in your life. The food is great, the ambience is lovely and the service is good. However, it can be a very costly exercise, but well worth it
