    The food was terrific most especially the tuna nachos and the kampachi. Only one service slip up when one of the appetizers was late to the table and I had to inquire about it. There were young children at several tables which honestly surprised me considering the cost of the menu items. The staff were friendly and we enjoyed ourselves very much.

    The Kampachi was amazing. But I will say that the salad was super blah. The tomatoes had no flavor. Then I ordered the au gratin potatoes and they were hard and cold. It was a serious disappointment after our server (the few times we saw him) talked them up in a big way

    As repeat diners, we are assured a memorable dining experience and this time was no difference - a very good thing! They were aware of the concert event across the street and made sure we were provided ample time to complete our entire meal prior to the gates opening. Tyler is an experienced server and hospitality veteran, who made the meal special. Kudos also to Kathy, the GM, Chefs Wade and Michelle and their staff.

    We are from SF, so expect pretty mind-blowing food experiences for this money. My wife and I just didn't see it, we ordered the Kona Kampachi and the Truffle braised Short rib, then the candy bar. Everything was beautifully presented. But taste experience is important too, and just overall value.

    Since relocating to the Symphony, MW is simultaneously “more of the same”and “better than before.” The menu is simpler, but the food is tastier and straight forward. The Caesar salad was the only disappointment as the lettuce had not been drained properly, so it diluted the dressing. However, everything else was excellent. The service, always a hallmark of MW, is still impressive. In short, this fine restaurant continues to evolve into a great one.

    You can eat some delicious food at MW. We got the tasting menu and everything was very tasty. Service is also impeccable. Valet parking is not marked very well. You have to drive in and then go to the second floor to valet park. The restaurant has hardwood floor and lots of hard surfaces, making it noisy.

    Exellent food and service. The kitchen was a little slow (took us almost 2.5 hours to finish the meal) but that just gave us more time to digest between courses so we didn't mind! We ordered the tasting menu, which was an excellent value.

    The service and food was excellent. I had the butterfish, while my wife had the kampachi. For those of you who have kids, the chef also prepares kid-sized meals that are not listed on the main menu. Your waiter should inform you when you order. We appreciated knowing that as our 7 year old would not have finished a regular adult meal. The only challenge with MW is finding the valet parking. There are no clear signage directing you to the valet parking area, but luckily someone showed us where to go. Other than that, we would definitely go back again!

    Was super excited to come try, food dessert and appetizer the wontons were great. My entree the lamps hi though came out lukewarm at best. I had heard this was one of their most popular dishes and for it to arrive almost cold was very disappointing. My husband duck was very good though and hot. Took a long time to get food and drinks. Waiter seemed very frazzled and forgetful even though the restaurant wasn’t even that busy. Took about 25 minutes before he even took our order. I like a relaxed pace but this was definitely on the slow side. For the money I spent on dinner I could have gotten much better food and service somewhere else. The complimentary dessert for our anniversary was sweet but didn’t quite make up for the rest of the dinner.

    We decided to go to MW restaurant for our 42nd anniversary. We heard about it but have never been as we live on Kauai. What a great experience it was! It was a bit tricky finding it—as you drove through a car dealership parking structure to get to the valet parking. It was no problem though. We were seated right away and the waiter (John) couldn’t have been better! We ordered a bottle of wine (Laely Cab) that was absolutely beautiful! They decanted it and we resisted the urge to get a second bottle! We shared the ahi poki appetizer which was amazing! Then we shared a Caesar salad (again…delicious!) and my husband had the rib eye steak and I had the miso butterfish. For dessert we ordered the crème brûlée which is Michelle’s specialty. They also brought us a decadent chocolate tort with “happy anniversary” written in chocolate. We will be back!! Do yourself a favor and try this restaurant! Love it!!!!

    My partner and I dined here for my birthday. The highlight was the brûlée dessert; it had surprisingly, fresh flavors and a mixture of textures that made it enthralling to eat. The mash potatoes with truffles and a delicious gravy sauce was very homey and quite rich. Everything else from the pickled beets salad, wagyu sliders, and our main entree that had a ratatouille component had a lackluster taste, which was disappointing. The only complaint would be the inconsideration of the server to bring out a complementary birthday dessert after the fact that we had ordered two desserts prior. And having an assumption that a chocolate cake would be of favored. The claustrophobic ambiance makes it less appealing to attend to for future special occasion.
