Celebrated a birthday in this special spot. Totally deserving of its Michelin Star. I think there were more employees than patrons. We sat at the bar and it was like dinner + a show! Chrissie, Christian and Collin were very helpful with ordering food, beverages and answering our questions. Did the 4-course meal + all it's secret extra surprises. Those brioche buns w/butter. Don't even get me started! Loved our halibut, porc, shrimp, partridge, sea bass, and more. Amazing flavors, but artful presentation was a 10+.

Out of this world experience!!!! Exceptional, food, drinks, service, atmosphere. Everyone at Addison were accommodating, provided great details and backgrounds to the foods and drink we consumed. The food…my goodness…an experience I will NEVER forget. Clearly Addison deserves the 3-star Michelin. So grateful to have experienced this and I plan to do it again. Thank you <3

Our waiter, Joseph could not have been better. He had a great personality but didn’t steal the show. He’s a perfect balance of substance and style.
