One of the best dining experiences ever! As good as any place in NYC or Las Vegas. Great interior, super service, the staff performs like they truly love their job and working at MK. The special cocktails were wonderful, very creative and colorful. We had the seared tuna and duck entrees. Extensive wine list. Wonderful deserts, pastry chef on the staff, makes a difference, way better than GFS packaged deserts.

The owner and executive chef work the room, very professional!

Do make plans to visit MK!

The food was a great adventure highlighted with great flavor nuances, exceptional service and wine pairings that combined to a great evening! It was a phenomenal experience, and the visits with a chef and sommelier was a great plus.

The endive salad was the best salad I have ever had. My husband loved the fettucine with lamb appetizer. My husband rated the NY steak among the top 5 in his life. My main course of duck was perfect. The Balvenie scotch, Courvoisier cognac and coffee ice cream were also very good. Perhaps the pommes frites were down a notch from the rest of the meal. The service was excellent and the Owner even talked with us for a few minutes and she also hailed us a cab!
We rate this restaurant right up there with Gary Danko in San Francisco but the atmosphere here is a little more energetic, that is to say a bit loud.

We booked this restaurant specifically for the tasting menu, and it was fantastic. The food was great and the service was amazing. The wine pairing were perfect, in a relaxed atmosphere. The pace of the courses was well-timed and I will be sure to return with friends whenever we can!

Been to this restaurant a year ago and at that time it I thought it was exceptional. Was excited to revisit. Service was again very good, atmosphere very good but the taste of the food was too complex. It was average, not exceptional. Came back the following night to try another selection and to celebrate a friends birthday. Again, the taste of the entrees was just average. Was disappointed that that the waiter provided us just a candle on our ordered dessert.! We had dinner at Ruths Chris downtown the following night and they helped us celebrate with a extra large ice cream sundae with compliments from the management. Wow, now that was great!
