Our hotel concierge sent us to this restaurant as we told her that we were "foodies" looking for a place to take our local cousins. Initial impressions were good. Good wine list. Informed and helpful staff. The presentations were excellent. The portions were even smaller than at some of the more exclusive California restaurants, so be prepared to order appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts to get a full meal. A tasting menu would have helped. I would have called a dish of six ravioli an appetizer, not an entree. The ravioli were so "al dente" they were hardly cooked. The duck was overcooked. All the desserts were great - maybe because we were still hungry? We had to ask for our bread to be delivered when we noticed that other tables had bread. It came just before our dessert and we inhaled it.
