Absolutely phenomenal dining experience. A culinary adventure from course to course. Incredibly well paced and balanced. The sections did not have one weak offering and each presentation easily stood on its own. Could not have been happier with the meal. Fantastic value for the Seven Course option.

Third visit didn’t disappoint. So many delicious and creative dishes, I especially loved the trout with leek and black vinaigrette and the satsuma desert. Service was very attentive, but not rushed. Thank you Castagna!

This is an exceptional place with sophisticated food and stylish environment. Molecular cuisine presentations was so fun to eat and delicious to savor. There was enough going on to keep lively conversation just around food and wine pairing. Hard to forget culinary experience and made our anniversary a day to remember.

Great as usual. The only unusual negative was a table of folks who probably thought they were in a bar and produced noise levels to go with that. They were so loud that we could hardly hear the conversation at our table with their table quite a distance away. Other than that food and service were great.

Went here with my girlfriend for our 3 year anniversary. The meal took us 2 hours for the 7 course menu (a positive thing), the wait staff was attentive and friendly. As a young couple even the $100 price tag (without drinks) is fairly steep during any given month, but worth the overal experience.

We enjoyed the very elegant tasting menu. Each dish was like a beautifully wrapped present. The cocktails were delicious and even though we opted out of the wine pairings, the recommended wine was perfect. The shared service was seamless and all were well informed about every dish. Except for a noticeable lag between a few dishes, the experience was truly memorable.

A fantastic experience in every respect. The food is, in a sense, simple--most dishes have but three main components, so each component plays a vital role in the dish as a whole--yet conceptually sophisticated. A dish of beet with crispy chard, for example, first delights the front of the tongue with its sweetness and softness but then stimulates the back of the tongue with its bitterness and crispiness. The service is perfect--warm but not intrusive, relaxing but not relaxed. Dietary accommodations are handled with laudable deftness. At $100 for a seven-course experience of such pleasure, the meal is a remarkable value.

This is a foodie's delight. Absolutely creative dishes and amazing presentation. My only minor gripe is the restaurant decor, a kind of minimalistic 70's barren landscape - but, again, the reason you are here is for a food adventure.

We ate at Castanga a few years ago and we were blown away by how delicious and inventive the food was. This time however, the food was good, but not worth the price you pay. The gratuity is included, but it is on top of the price of the meal. Most of the time when we have dined at restaurants where the gratuity in included (Or where it is stated the staff is paid a living wage), it’s already included in the price. This is what Castanga needs to do. I would not recommend them now.

I told the server that the experience was about art, not just the food. I was referring to the presentation of each course and the design of the space, as well as to the flavor and texture of each course. The flavor and texture of the rock fish were especially wonderful and it arrived much hotter than is usual with restaurant food, which made it all the more delectable.

I was looking for a small and quite location for dinner and had heard of Castagna's through the internet. We were able to have a wonderful dinner with great wine paring, the location is easy to access, the atmosphere was perfect for a quite dinner for 2. We did not feel rushed or hurried as we enjoyed our meal.
