We celebrated our 42nd Anniversary. I can't point out exactly what was it that didn't make this experience an amazing one we expected it to be, but unfortunately it wasn't. Ambiance and service were wonderful, but unfortunately the food didn't raise up to our expectations....More

Hard to say, as it will vary by items chosen for a la carte. I spent $130 for the tasting menu (for one) with a single bottle of wine last year (March 2015).
