We made our reservations well in advance, alerting staff of food intolerances,which were graciously honored. The dining room is elegant, refined, yet comfortable. Patrons were dressed for dinner, which was appreciated since I lugged heels and a non-travel dress over the sea. François was prompt in offering an aperitif which was a lovely Rosé champagne. His service approachable professional spot on. The starters, the seafoods, the lamb, the desserts were described in detail and were not only gorgeous but all delectable! The evening was going perfectly until the 3rd course, then an apparent "Who's Who" of the industry sashayed in in his andy cap and scarf, and frazzled the staff while sucking all the energy out of the room. It wouldn't have been so bad, but we could hear his loud dissatisfaction. (I think he just wanted free drinks for his party.) François elegantly contained himself but couldn't help addressing the "situation" while the staff became distracted. Julien Binz deserves his star back absolutely! It's too bad when you have to cater to those who make it difficult to shine to ALL patrons who don't get to write off dinner on an expense account and who simply want to enjoy the wonders of this amazing chef. Bravo Julien!!
