1st time was stunning. wine pairing with dinner is the way. 2nd time was mediocre and the food was bland, service was poor on New Year's Eve. You take your chances with $100 a cover.

Chef Mavro is a beautiful restaurant with a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. We selected an appetizer and four course dinner for two which was excellent! Each plate presented to us was a piece of art, perfect in size and amazing in taste!

This restaurant is nice, good wine pairings and very good quality food, it just isn't one of my favorites compared to other higher end places around the area (Alan Wongs, Hy's, Le Bistro etc.).

Many awards. 9 course Prix fixe meal, or choose from "small plates." Chose the latter as chef's meal was too expensive. Small plates is an understatement. Food was good, but not at those prices. Wait staff was very polite. Wouldn't recommend.More
