    Waiter ignored us for a long time, then food took forever. Hamachi Crudo was disappointing. Entrees (risotto and fish soup) were pretty good, so were desserts, but prices were fairly high.

    If you are into seafood prepared in new and exciting ways with flavor combinations not often found, this is your place. The service was excellent from the time I entered the lobby of the Conrad. The staff there was truly helpful to guide me to and up the elevator to ensure I made it to the restaurant (which may be on the 2nd or 3rd floor, I am not sure- they used all the buttons and ushered me along). Then we exited the elevator to get a brief tour of the floor on the way to the maitre 'd. He was welcoming and kind and all smiles. We actually asked for an additional seat which they accommodated for a friend to join us at the last minute. The fact that they bring a special glass for sparkling water to distinguish mine from still drinkers is always an excellent sign that these folks know service. The knowledge of the menu and extent of the wine list also are great clues that everything was going to be fabulous. It was- I will be back and try more of the amazing dishes. I did not have room for dessert, but the rest of the table all enjoyed theirs with huge smiles on their faces! I think that they will all be back, too!

    We were seated and there were not enough menus so the waiter suggested that 1 person find the menu at the back of the drink menu. He then brought him a menu. Server seemed less that excited to be working. Caesar salad was fair - dressing had no taste. Scallop dish was very good. Mixed reviews from others in the party.
