the seafood tasting menu was six courses of fun. beautiful to look at, better to eat. the wine pairings made it all the more enjoyable as they complemented the meal beautifully. the salmon ceviche was so fresh tasting, the gazpacho so flavorful, and the house special pounded tuna tartar with faux gras was subtle with a cool kick of heat -- amazing

PLUSSES-Good food and impeccable service. Waiter immediately asks for any diner's food allergies/dislikes.

MINUS-Last time here, several years ago, they offered an a la carte menu. Last week, only 2 choices: $110 3-course prix fixe menu or $150 5-course chef tasting service; neither including wines.

Absolutely wonderful experience!! We tried the Chef's tasting menu. Each course was made to perfection! The most memorable would be the langoustine, it's just perfectly done! And the pan seared sole with brown butter sauce is delicious! I am amazed that every sauce on the plates compliments each component while the presentation is also perfect.
The great service and atmosphere made the meal even better! It's worth eating at an early time at 5.15pm (the only time slot available).
One minor complaint... Maybe due to the tight sitting, they served the meal a bit too rush... We finished the 8-course meal in two hours!

Amuse bouche was delicious... Soup tasted like the sea (in a good way). The tuna with foie gras was amazing!
