    Superb and memorable food. Excellent service. A unique experience, but not necessarily a luxurious dining experience. We thought the upsale of supplements to add onto the already very expensive tasting menu and the very high wine markup was off putting.

    Walk through an unassuming grocery store to find the maitre d and a white door that leads inside Chef’s Table. I was excited to finally try this Michelin *** so many raved about. The following courses were unbelievably amazing! 🤤 Hard to describe bc no food menu given 😒 1) ikura & floral arrangement atop a hollow wafer 2) A5 wagyu tartar on a crunchy shell 3) prism shaped scallop w/ crunchy seaweed nigiri 4) caviar on top of tomato? jelly, raw tuna, cucumber & a crunchy surprise below 6) yellowtail sashimi swimming in tasty milky sauce 11) frozen soufflé - divine! My taste buds were happy and brain was curious These dishes had high level of complexity and creativity with a scrumptious taste to match My least favorite: 😢 5) uni toast - buttery uni + buttery truffle paste + buttered lightly toasted soft thick bread. Too many of the same soft textures. Savory on top of savory. I am a HUGE fan of uni but this dish masked the superior uni quality 7) foie gras and snail? soup - couldn’t distinguish what I was eating. Much rather have a creamy version of fish maw soup with yellow chives (healthier & much cheaper too) 8) sea bream in green sauce - good but doesn’t beat my most memorable plump, flaky, juicy confit prepared fish from Bar Maze in Hawaii (highly highly highly recommend) 9) duck w/ speck ham slice - perfectly crisp skin w/ juicy meat. What’s there not to enjoy? Bc I’ve cooked a version that’s a little less tasty for a lot less $$$ 10) sorbet/sherbet w/ mandarin & ? jelly - very refreshing but so are desserts at Hui Lau Shan and similar places 12) milk tea cake - not my cup of tea, lol texture was too soggy, milk tea flavor was off. Prefer a Lady M slice 13) petite 4s - shortbread cookie surprisingly good, chocolate cookie unremarkable 14) madeleines - unimpressed Do I recommend? If you have $$ to burn Highly priced dinner ($1125 w/ 2 bottles Pellegrino, tax, tip) for diminished return in taste. Wish I had space to write more 1/31/23

    Food was what you’d expect at any Michelin starred restaurant. Whether the food is worth 3 stars, or should it be just 2? It is worthy a debate. The service, however, hands down the worst Michelin experience we’ve ever had. The silverware was placed off centered from my wife (the spoon was at least 10 inches away her right hand, and not a single course was placed directly in front of her, always off centered by a little), empty wine glasses staggered on the table (wife had up to 5 glasses at one point), water level was always low (perhaps couldn’t see because of all the wine glasses), use of wine glasses weren’t correct and inconsistent between tables on the same wines and the list just goes on and on (rushed towards the end because of the time limit, food was brought to the table while the lady was in the restroom, etc. etc.) Overall, it was a memorable dining experience just not a positive one. The service was subpar even for just a normal restaurant let alone a 3 star restaurant. Honestly felt ripped off by the meal and only paid the horrendous pricing thinking it will be a complete experience of a 3 starred restaurant. Personally, I would be shocked and disgusted if they retain 3 stars after this year. Definitely don’t recommend going especially at the price point they are charging.

    I guess I had higher expectations for a 3 Michelin star dining experience…. And maybe I should not compare it to experiences such as Per Se or Masa… but chef’s table felt like a bit of a scam… they are short staffed and I feel bad for the team but I definitely would not recommend this place to anyone.. service was subpar, no engagement from the team, no menu or anything, couldn’t tell you really what I had … I just know we paid over $1500 just to leave feeling super hungry and went to get pizza right after… the pizza was my favorite and most memorable part of the night …

    The food was good with fresh ingredients. Some of dishes were pretty creative. The pace was fair for people without wine pairing, might be a bit rush for the others. The service was good, and the team seems to be very organized. I also appreciate they can accommodate to cook some dishes for me since I am not able to consume too much raw seafoods/meat, and they were still tasty.

    Very well done dishes executed to perfection, but not that creative or innovative if that is what you're seeking. Traditionally refined, and more Japanese influence than French. Service was much better than expected given existing reviews. Men are required to wear jackets - not a stuffy environment but it is an odd requirement.

    The experience and the food was excellent. The only thing I would recommend is that the site says the attire should be formal. However, there were only a few parties in formal wear while a number of parties were in sneakers and sweats pants. Either enforce the formal wear or remove the formal attire required. I would have been fine leaving the suit at home. Other than that, the experience was phenomenal and I look forward to coming back.
