The food was excellent and the service was very good. I would recommend this restaurant to my family and friends. We had a very nice meal.
Loved it! The servers were so friendly. They ran out of some of the desserts, but they gave us extra dessert to make up for it. Can't wait to go there again. My husband and sons all loved it,
It was amazing being there. The service was mora than excellent.... And the food.... No words to describe..... Great!!!!!!love it and I'll be back.
As part of the cooking school a unique place to visit. The waiters are future chefs & learning the frontend business of a restaurant - friendly folks I have met in a long time - we will be returning.
Excellent spot for great food at a good price. I love the interesting cuisines and platings.
We had not been since their last move. All was as good as before.
Wonderful creative cuisine. Really sorry they will close!
Service was impeccable, very attentive. Food far exceeded our expectations. Everything was executed perfectly and thoughtfully.
Dessert.... Please give me a minute... Absolutely amazing. I thought the presentation was incredible, but then you tasted it... WOW!
Everything we had tonight was delicious and amazing!
Delicious and cooked perfectly:
Salmon and New York Steak
Vegetables-Raw-tatouille and kale salad-very fresh, creative, and creative.
Deserts were beautiful and delicious-Peanut butter/chocolate as well as the chocolate soufflé.
While there, I bought scones and they were so yummy!
We arrived at opening time of 5:30. No one at the door to greet us. Once we found someone, we were seated almost immediately. We received drinks and salad very quickly. I know they waited to put in our dinner order just as we were completing the starters ( good thing). We received our entree quickly and our server ( Ana) checked back within the two minute or two bite rule. The food was delicious. We had a million questions and she answered all of them completly. We also learned the restaurants will be closing. That is just wrong. The restrooms were clean and maintained. There is nothing negative the evening, except it will be closing by next year.
We enjoyed an elegant dinner at Technique. The service is exceptional and the menu is delightful. The three course meal is a great value for a special dinner.
Technique's French food rocks. The prix fixe 3-course dinner menu gives enough choices to satisfy discerning palates. Everything came nicely presented and flavors captured the imagination. We enjoyed the raw de-constructed ratatouille salad--pretty in layers & finely seasoned. Their green peppercorn steak entree tasted especially fine. And chocolate dessert topped everything off. Looks like I'd enjoy the lunch menu too. Our only two suggestions: use less salt on these dishes and put up some sound absorbing material on the walls. It's fairly noisy. But we liked the jazz music played over the intercom.
Chef Hart and the students cooking that evening were amazing. Everything was seasoned perfectly and service was great. thank you :)
First time dining here - my husband and I looked at each other and said 'why haven't we been here before?' We will be back!! Only open M - F , run by students from le cordon blue - great value!!!
The food is great, wine is pricey, they have a $10 corkage fee, so thats the better way to go. The wine list is also small, not many choices.
We were surprised how slow the place was on a Friday night. I think this is well worth a second visit and will be recommending it. Despite being student run, the food was very well done and cooked perfectly. menu items were limited, but that was OK -- the choices were still fine and not at all "risky" as you might expect from a fine dining educational outfit.
Service was the only spotty part as we were left alone for too long after seating, the first course arrived before wine (which just plain took too long to get to us) and we were not offered coffee or wine refills -- we had to be pro-active.
Nevertheless, I would still recommend, especially as it seems to have slowed down in traffic and is an exceptional value. ($25 3-course prix fixe menu!)
A wonderful spot for excellent gourmet cuisine at a great price!
The menu needs better descriptions of the items. Even after asking some questions, there was still some confusion and one of the dishes we ordered was not what we expected. There were hardly any vegetarian items or veggie dishes. The meal did not feel balanced health-wise. Dessert was good but we didn't get a birthday candle- maybe they didn't have any but that should have been voiced when we requested it while ordering. Service wasn't negative but just not as friendly and warm as we've experienced at other places.
Came here at my SIL's request, it was her BD. We had not been here for a couple of years. We were a little disappointed initially since the wonderful crab cake was not on the menu but was quickly compensated by the chef's treat, mini crab cake for free.
We all had the 3-course dinner at 25 dollars each. Very well, asian, flavoured appetizers (calamari and mussels/fries). My wife and SIL liked the skirt steak. My roasted duck breast was juicy, tender, and perfectly cook to median as I requested. This may be the best duck breast dish I've ever had considered the portion size and the price paid; I have tasted many!! Dessert was OK for me since I am not a dessert person but my family liked it. My MIL had the strip bass that she seemed to enjoy.
Thi is a place with very good food and very in-expensive considered this is in Pasadena. Though, I do wish that it could also open on weekends.
The are students and they cook as real grown up chefs! The dinner was lovely , our host was so so sweet!
I suggest to take the 3 courses menu !
Ps the duck breast was delicious
