LOUD, LOUD, LOUD! Everything else was so superior it would be nice if the need to scream to be heard by one's companions weren't so. Always ask to be seated away from large parties!
The building and decor are spectacular. Very intimate and romantic. The service was very good. The food was good, but I'm not sure it was worth $100 each. I wish they would make the Fix price menu optional.
We went here for my husband's birthday because it was touted as the 5th most romantic restaurant in the world. It certainly lived up to the reputation. We loved the ambiance, soft piano music and romantic candlelight with roses at every table. The food was similarly phenomenal. My husband loved the cote de bouef steak and said it was the best steak he'd ever had. Everything was beautifully prepared with great flavors. The best part was how attentive the staff were. We arrived late due to some traffic and had to be at the theatre by 8 pm, we notified the waiter and they took great care to make sure we were able to finish our meal with time to spare, without sacrificing quality or feeling rushed. It was perfect. Would definitely come here again!
Wonderful ambiance but food not up to the standards previously experienced.
On top of the history behind the building, it really is very romantic! The octopus appetizer was the most tender; it just melted in your mouth! I am not a big meat eater but the beef wellington was out of this world. Looking forward to going back! Great service and wine list!
We visited for the NYE dinner and were told there would be a vegetarian version of the tasting menu available - but this was just removing the meat from a few dishes and adding a pasta. For the price and reputation of the place, I definitely expected better. The food was good but not great. The first round of bread that came out was not warm at all (I only realized it was supposed to be warm and soft when they brought more bread for the table, which was great). They mixed up the order for the first course and after that it was smooth. Salad was strangely large, pasta was fine, saffron risotto (minus lobster for me) was not good, chocolate dessert was delicious. Our server, Orchid, was lovely. Very attentive and gave us a taste of her favorite cocktail and overall improved the new year eve dining experience considerably. She also bartends so I would go back to have a drink at the bar but definitely can't recommend for dinner. I did love the ambiance of the place, beautifully decorated and very romantic.
One of the finest meals with amazing service that we’ve had anywhere in the world.
My husband and I came here for our wedding anniversary. I had called ahead to request that a “happy anniversary” message be written on our dessert plates as a surprise. I was assured that it wouldn’t be a problem. Unfortunately, our dessert plates came with no message. I was very disappointed. Very poor execution from a high end restaurant such as this.
On top of that, the food was nothing special and didn’t blow us away. The only thing that stood out was the chocolate soufflé. That was delicious.
Overall, ambiance was very romantic but was disappointed with food, service and execution from such a high end restaurant. If I’m going to pay these prices, I will choose a better option.
Outstanding food and ambiance. A perfect romantic setting. The service can be better, lack of attentiveness and some of the dishes were incorrect. The presentation and taste from each dish was wonderful.
