Not so easy to find - you have to be determined to locate the Palomar Hotel, then navigate through the bar to find the restaurant. The bar seems like "the scene" but the restaurant is the true find! Carefully considered food, outstanding professional service, and a wine list curated by Amy Goldberg that should be the subject of a feature article in itself. I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the evening, and my guests from London were definitely impressed!

We had the tasting menu with a few of my husband's colleagues. The sommelier was friendly and helpful and guided us to a lovely bottle. The atmosphere was comfortable and understated, with windows on one wall revealing some rooftop planter boxes. Service was attentive. The food was very good, but tended to err on the side of overly self-conscious combinations of ingredients, where the waiters would set the plate down and launch into paragraphs of descriptions of every minute element. While we had a perfectly nice time, my husband and I had to hold back giggles as this meal conjured up memories of writer David Sedaris' descriptions of places just like this one.

We had the 8-course tasting menu with wine pairings, and it was a great experience and great fun. It gave us a chance to try dishes we would not ordinarily try, and for us, 6 out of 8 were outstanding. The wine pairings were superb. Tip of the hat to chef and staff. We had a great time.

We stayed at the Palomar and had dinner at the Fifth Floor before Les Miz. It fantastic. The chef is doing some very cool things. The use of Sorbet in the meals is tasty and interesting. I recommend eating here. We ate at 5:30 and they got us our by 7:30 for our easy walk to the Orpheum.
