The Somm was phenomenal, the pairing was awesome and on point. The food however, left a lot to be desired. For the price that we paid over 800 for 2 people I walked away super disappointed at the food for a few reasons.
1) The fish dish was so bad I couldn't finish it
2) The main entree came with two slices of duck
Maybe I just eat a lot but I was hungry after. So much so that I went home and had ramen.

Very slow service after the first couple of courses. Food was just ok. Not worth the cost

We have been going to Sons&Daughters since they opened. Now they are famous, and rightly so. There is no other option besides the chef picked menu unless one has allergies but each course is thoughtful and inventive without being weird. My only objection this time was too much salt in the trout dish but that is minor. This restaurant is every inch a champion.

Wonderful experience. Delicious tasting menu, beautiful presentation, wine paring worth it’s quality and presentation. An unusually quiet setting which adds to the ambiance.

Service and presentation were perfect, but the food struck us as good, but not great. Menu changes often, so YMMV .

It was a good experience, but really overpriced. The food was great (but not the best I've ever had), and service was perfect, but I don't think it was worth what we paid.

I plan to write a lengthier review, but in a few words:

I have a creeping anxiety that not enough people know about Sons & Daughters, and that I might find it difficult to book a meal here in the future if more people find out about it.

Allow me to explain:

After my dining experience here, and it truly is an experience, I don’t understand why there is not more buzz about this restaurant, or more Michelin stars attached to it for that matter. Perhaps the best analogy for a meal here is a comparison to an authentic kaiseki meal in Japan. There is a level of attention to detail to each dish that it leaves no doubt of the chef’s intent when the dish was conceptualized. Each ingredient has its place, and everything works together to create a multifaceted sensory experience on the diner’s palate.

Now, to describe the food in that manner is actually unfair because it is a distilled and sterile description. However, there are times when you eat a meal at a Michelin starred restaurant and it almost feels like you are in the midst of a watching a surgeon perform a surgery. Everything is so refined, yet cold. A meal at Sons & Daughters is that level of detail and intent, with a sense of warmth and being welcomed.

If you are considering a special meal here, do not hesitate.
