Superb service, not rushed. Food was outstanding. Loved the 5 course taster selection on the menu. Michael Smith himself came out to make sure our experience was meeting expectations.

This restaurant is very expensive and the food is not worth it. Three of four dishes were overly salty - not something that is acceptable at those prices. Additionally the restaurant is very loud and the tables are too close together. In our case we...More

The cosmo was better than the usual. Not sure what they did but it was more peach colored. But the best part of the night? The Tapas food: shishito peppers, papas bravas and grilled oyster mushrooms. Incredible.
