A true culinary dining experience. The dishes are intricate, complex and sublime. Taste, texture and the visual is exciting and did not fail this educated palate. And the service was extraordinary. Mark took care of us with great expertise. Made this birthday a lovely experience.

Meal was outstanding and food expertly prepared. Didn't appreciate having a dog at the table next door which wandered to other tables and was held by owner over shoulder 5 feet away while eating.

Seafood in entrees and grilled shrimp appetizer were of poor quality, texture and preparation. This is inexcusable in a restaurant of this quality, and should never have been served.

We had a party of 6 and they put us the front entrance. They sat us outside and it was very cold and drafty. There were no heaters above our table so we all kept our coats and jackets on throughout the entire meals. Overpriced for atmosphere, however, the food was well prepared. 1500 needs to up their game to charge their high price.s

This restaurant mimics serious restaurants to poor effect. The limited menu affords assembly line production of dolled up dishes. Grossly overpriced. Another example of food inversely proportional to view.
