Sommelier was personable and helpful.
When asking for assistance in orienting us to the menu, including my 16yo daughter, server seemed irritated.
This restaurant may be more suited for sophisticated foodies. Still though, the staff should welcome a new guest’s curiosity and not demean them for not knowing what all of the fancy foods and accompaniments are.

Sometimes Michelin-starred restaurants end up being disappointments, e.g., pretentious staff, microscopic portions, exorbitant prices, etc. But Acquerello fulfilled all of our expectations, and gifted us with a memorable dining experience. The complimentary extras were a great surprise!

We were seated right next to the heat vent and I asked if they can kindly turn it down but the staff was rude that he couldn't and gave me attitude. It made me sick and sleepy. The food service is super slow. I know it's a 3 hour dinner but they could of picked up the pace a little.
