Dining at Per Se it's impossible to rate just the food--the entire experience is a finely tuned dance. Servers come out in unison, flourishing plates and revealing what is beneath lids. The meal is so perfectly timed and orchestrated that you feel like you're in the midst of a performance.
The food, of course, is the star, and star it is. Starve yourself before coming here because you will be rolling out the door. Each dish is small, but there are so many of them, you will be in agony if eat them all (and eat them all I did). The oysters with caviar was definitely one of the highlights, but each course--the squab, the fishes--was a burst of flavor. Dessert deserves it's own reviews. It started with a cheese course and then the sweets exploded (so many I can't remember them all): an ice cream dessert, a creamy custardy dessert, a selection of caramels, macaroons, and truffles, assorted chocolates, and the amazing finish of "breakfast," which was a frozen coffee with warm doughnuts.
This place is clearly extremely expensive and a once-in-a-long-while treat, but it is worth it. When booking, my husband mentioned it was our anniversary so not only did the menu wish us a happy anniversary on it, but we had an additional dessert of a darling flower pot made of cake and cream. Truly superb.
