We had a birthday dinner at this fabulous restaurant. Amazing wine list, which ranged from decent bottles to extraordinary ones in the several hundreds of $s.
However the food was the real star: amazing roasted crab and garlic noodle. Drunken crab was good but not AS good as the roasted (have it just cracked and not totally prepared). Jumbo shrimps excellent too. And the the atmosphere and the service were just perfect.
We did not spend the $20 valet parking but parked on the street( free after 9pm) . With the money saved we tipped heavily our very professional waiter. A total treat!

A pleasant dining experience was interrupted by a very loud actress, who shall remain nameless, and her groupies. We finally requested to be moved because we were shouting to hear each other. We were moved immediately but not to the location we wanted, not sure why. But food was good. Oh and the piano could use a little dusting and the seat cushions could be cleaned. Not sure if I would go again.

I've been hearing raves about this restaurant for years and finally had a chance to check it out with my girlfriend. It's a nice restaurant and has great decor. We went for lunch and the menu was reasonably priced. Our server was delightful and made great suggestions for appetizers and cocktails. The only downside was valet parking was not complimentary.

Service is outstanding and the food delightful. Walking into this restaurant gave me a very relaxed and peaceful feeling. I don't know if was the koi fish under the floor or the music playing in the background, but it reminded me of being at the spa. Overall this is a very solid restaurant with exceptional cuisine. Definitely worth a try. I visited during lunch hours and ordered garlic noodles, surf and turf rolls, rock shrimp, filet mingon and the sangria cocktail which was tasty.

The roasted crab and noodles deserve all the praise they have received. But be forewarned - the garlic will stay with you into the next day!

One concern: 3 women were sat at a table in next to the kitchen traffic when there were empty tables in better locations.
