Had dinner here for my birthday. Husband and I had the chef’s tasting menu with paired wines, but since I do not eat meat (and informed waiter of such) I asked for an alternative to the “surf and turf” course. I asked for the fish...More

Doesn’t matter what group size you have, they always come through. Tonight I had the seven course tasting menu and it was a trip! My favorite was the Monkfish with Chorizo but it is awkward choice because everything is just wonderful.

If you can afford it, go. The food, the service and the ambiance are all extraordinary. I have been going for 25 years although not as frequently as I use to because the prices have soared.
