The food was phenomenal and the service was right there with it. There were so many surprises laced into our dining experience, including a few special chefs tastings. Additionally, the live pianist was amazing and provided for a perfect ambiance. My fiancé even had to stop and get his information!

Our order consisted of: 1. Cream of Prawn and Pumpkin Soup which was average. Nothing to boast about! 2. Catch of The Day...chef's special: Red snapper (my favorite fish) was over cooked! Felt rubbery with absolutely flavorless sauce! 3. Green Salad and More: Green salad, pea and watercress mousse, smoked asparagus, avocado, Brussels sprouts, broad beans, chia seed vinaigrette. There were No asparagus or Brussels in the salad! 4. Sea Bass fish: This was ok dish. Overall, just disappointing. Even more disappointing, none of the servers was wearing Mask! (All other places we visited servers were masked.

Last night fully confirmed my experience of last October: I had feared a couple of years ago that Cafe des Artistes was getting "tired" the foie gras was equally so (and if you ask, you may get a fine sauterne to go with it--for a very modest price). The octopus preparation was imaginative and delicious. As always, the wine selection by the glass was top-notch. Rafael's service was friendly, attentive, & knowledgeable. I look forward to my next visit.

We elected to have the tasting menu with wine pairing. The food was outstanding, every course better than the last. I cannot say enough about the excellent service throughout the evening -- shout-out to Manny and Gerardo! Our table was in the garden; the ambience was perfection with beautiful lighting and lovely music from the violin and piano players. It was one of most memorable dining experiences ever. Highly recommend.
