    This place was indeed excellent! We loved the food, ambience. We had a woman named Catherine who was our server and she was super friendly. They gave details about every dish while serving. Complimentary food was given. They also served us complimentary dessert on the occasion of our anniversary. The most sweet gesture was a valentine’s day card and a rose, felt really special!❤️

    The food was amazing, 10/10 for sure. I wish I could eat here all the time. The attention to detail by the staff is what made our experience even greater. From the valet service and being greeted at Don Alfonso, and the staff throughout the entire meal we were perfectly catered to. I can’t speak on the wine, but the cocktails were delicious.

    The food I ate was delicious but I was unable to finish the tasting menu because they sat a couple beside us who were wearing a disgusting amount of perfume and cologne. The smell was so strong I couldn’t taste my first main course and we asked to move to hopefully enjoy the rest of the meal. However, by the time we got another table the noxious chemical smell had made me fill ill and I couldn’t eat the last three courses. We asked for our bill to leave because the smell had made me sick, our server didn’t seem to understand and just brought out the remaining courses. I wouldn’t go back after this experience.

    Amazing gastronomic experience!! Overpriced but you are paying for the overall experience. Service was great and so was the food. Just the lobster dish turned out to be slightly chewy. Cocktails were fantastic and I’d recommend this place for atleast a one time visit on a special occasion.  Nice view, I’d recommend going during sunset.

    The head sommelier provided such an amazing addition to our dining experience. His knowledge of the wines as well as the regions in which the grapes are grown is outstanding. His explanations of the wines felt like I was taken on a trip to the wineries themselves. His descriptions enabled me to enjoy each note and how they complemented each dish. Truly a one of a kind experience overall

    This place is rip off, The food being baby sized portions was fine because we all know these so called “fancy” restaurants give you two bites of everything. Besides that the taste was horrible I can say everything in the menu was disgusting either the food was extremely salty or extremely tasteless. This place is very overrated and not worth your money. I would not eat here even if it was free!

    Good food, good service, beautiful restaurant, and great wine pairings. It's a solid, 1-star, Michelin restaurant. It's definitely not worth 2 or 3 stars though. Maybe in time it will ascend to loftier heights?

    I had a fantastic anniversary dinner with my husband last night. Our server Liam was super attentive and went beyond to make our night special even setting up a dessert that said Happy Anniversary! The food was incredible also everything you tasted was so well paired and so interestingly presented. My favorite was the carpaccio and lobster dish. The ambience was nice with great view and not too loud so you could actually enjoy a conversation. I definitely highly recommend and will be returning soon!

    This restaurant wows you. The location and views are superb. The service is warm and wonderful. We celebrated a bday party and they were kind enough to give us a complementary dessert as well as two lovely gifts for the bday kids. The food was very nice, but ultimately it does not impress you as much as everything around it. We ordered the entire a-la-cart menu and some dishes were not as good as the others, e.g., the rigatoni, or the fried veg. rings. With a drink, dessert, taxes and a (well-earned!) tip you end up spending $250 pp, and that is expensive, at the end of the day. Still it is well worth going once for a special occasion.

    They have introduced a lounge adjacent to the main Michelin Star dining room. There were some obnoxious, loud people in the lounge which ruined the quiet atmosphere in the dining room. The lounge should be separated off, this layout is unheard off in a Michelin star restaurant in our view. Or the loud customers asked to tone it down out of respect to other diners.
