“Fantastic meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

Our dining experience included some of the best food we have ever had. The chef is an artist, and like most great art, did not come cheaply. The food and wine was matched perfectly.

“WOW.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2011

The service was outstanding. The food was even better. I had the Imperial Tasting Menu with the paired wine tasting. For what you get, this is a value. It may seem pricey, but it's not. I will never forget this meal. I will also say that I had breakfast there as well, and they cooked my soft boiled egg perfectly- something I always respect.
