My sister and I were in town celebrating our birthdays. We had a fantastic waiter who suggested that we might want to try the tasting menu with wine pairings!
We had each course brought out and the Sommelier poured our wine and explained why it was selected, complementing the dish. The food compemented the wine and the wine enhanced each dish.
The tasting menu started off with cavier atop a layered crab cake with a potato pancake on the bottom, paired with champagne, followed by tuna tartare with quail egg and a white wine. Next we were served Chilean sea bass with another white wine, followed by a mini lobster pot pie, then a red wine served with our wagyu steak and foie gras.
The final dessert course was a port served with a warm chocolate chip cookie, root beer float, layer cake, and Happy Birthday truffles! Such a lovely and memorable fine dining experience!
Memorable Meal with friends! Thoroughly enjoyed their speciality drinks, all 4 of us loved our drinks (my Fav The Prospector) The Lobster Pie was spectacular & delicious, as was the filet mignon and truffle creamy potatoes. A Miss: Bernaise, tasty but too tiny. One of our guests didn't enjoy their steak (I think it was rib eye?) Chocolate bar dessert outstanding, as was the wine. It was a bit noisy & distracting as we were seated next to the kitchen, but loved our service & meal
We got the chef’s signature tasting menu. All great, except the lobster pot pie. Undercooked veggies and overly cooked lobster. Other than that, a pretty perfect meal!
We did the spectacular tasting menu with wine pairing. Mushroom soup is, by far, the best mushroom soup we've had, and we've had many. Vegetarian pairing was kept interesting with crispy textures added to grains and veggies. All courses were elevated well above the standard fare. Service was flawless, restaurant is very comfortable.
Pasamos un momento extraordinario, disfrutamos la cena y el lugar fue sumamente agradable para toda la familia
Michael Mina 2017 is not at all comparable to Michael Mina 2007; and that’s a shame. Time, and the culinary shift to presentation over taste, have taken their toll. The Foie Gras we shared was undercooked and, sadly, its accompaniments were lacking in their ability to complement what, when properly prepared and served, is exquisite. The balance of the meal? Unfortunately, only average. Sad best describes my feelings about our dining experience.
Christmas dinner with family and friends
Wonderful Christmas Dinner with family and friends. Very warm friendly and inviting. The food was well prepared and delicious
From the bread and butter to the dessert everything was excellent. We had the prix fix menu on Christmas Eve and it was absolutely delicious
Our Christmas Eve dinner was wonderful. Everything was delicious as I remember. The only downfall was there was a piece of plastic (corner of a plastic bag) in our food. Things happen and we were fine until one of the server came back to tell us that chef said it was part of the cartilage of a fish. My husband is a Japanese chef and he knew it was not part of a fish and it shouldn't have been in a vegetable regardless. The server spoke to manager and came back with that answer so not sure whether manager or the chef made that up. It's all about the principle, own your mistakes and simply apologize. This was very disappointing. We were having a fabulous time up until this hapoened at the very end of our main course. Ambience was romantic, yet a bit dated. It hasn't changed much since 20 years.
