For the price and reputation we expected this to be the best meal we ever had. It wasn't, but it was close. The service and food presentation were excellent. Unfortunately my first course (palm salad), I didn't care for. I have an aversion to cilantro and always make sure to stay away from any food item that includes it. Well, it wasn't listed in the list of ingredients and my first big bite - there it was. Ugh. For a restaurant of this caliber, I would have expected to be offered an alternative first course, but wasn't. That was disappointing. Beyond the first course, the remaining courses were delicious. A customized menu congratulating my husband and congratulations again written in chocolate on an edible banner amidst his '7 deadly sins' dessert were great touches. Although we have had equally delicious meals at other restaurants for half the price of the $530 we paid here, we are glad we had the experience. It was a special night.
