The last savoury course was amazing. I would suggest 4 course rather than the 8.

Fish shouldn’t taste fishy - especially at a five star restaurant. The yellowtail and lobster both seemed less than fresh. Very surprising. Service was wonderful but the food wasn’t great.

FABULOUS!!! Cannot find one flaw in the food, ambience or service. The entire staff was so attentive, the flow of the meal was practically lyrical. And the food...every bite had a lunch, starting with the vegetable tartlet amuse bouche, all the way through to the pop rock truffle at the end. The four-course dinner was the right amount of food to really appreciate the talent of the chef and still feel satiated. The 2-star Michelin rating is more than warranted. Would definitely go back again.

It's an amazing restaurant more than what I expected. Expecally being 20 it's the first time I had service where they tell me what I am eating. Me and my husband went for our first wedding anniversary and it was amazing food. The only annoying thing was the server kept asking if we wanted wine. I would love wine but I am not about to go to jail because I don't want to seem cheap. 😂

The service was top-notch and the tasting menus was as delicious as it was creative. My only critique was that I don’t recommend paying almost $200 for a meal for my nine year old son, who has as much sophistication as any adult when it comes to eating. He enjoyed everything and was fascinated by the artistic beauty of the dishes, and I welcome restaurants who welcome children; however, the cost for his meal was simply excessive. This was my fault. I should have reserved dinner in the more casual room.

6-courses tasting menu. As always , food was nice presentation, each course an art in itself. Yet, some dishes, though very nice presentation, the taste were just ok. Especially the desert. Too sweet for us. Next time, i’ll stick w 3-course . Attentive service. Ambiance -classy and the view to sculpture garden simply so so nice. Flowers settings- always my favorite.

かなり混雑していました。予約は必須です。
そのせいかサーブは遅め。
料理は最高です。ステーキは一番好みに合いました。
たまたまかなり良い席に通してくれたので、やはり高評価になってします。チップはいりません。価格に含まれています。

We were fortunate to be able to get seats at the "Kitchen Table" so we experienced a spectacular meal and service from the Chef and support staff as well as various wait and wine support teams. The meal was GREAT! Every dish was unique with amazing plating and ingredients and seasonings that brought everything to a higher level of taste. Chef Tom Allan is a star and you should take the time to visit and experience his mastery. Being able to ask the staff questions and to watch our dishes getting prepared was so much fun and the kitchen itself is beautiful with more marble than a well appointed house. Every person we met was a total professional and went out of their way to make sure we were happy and every one of our questions was answered. This was a very special night. So much so that we plan on bringing friends back because it is simply something not to be missed.

Every bite was exquisite BUT both my husband daughter ordered the beef and were brought lamb. On top of that the secondary waiter tried to tell them it was beef. My daughter finally got the proper dish. If you are going to charge $138 prix fixe you simply cannot do that. One of our drinks should have been on the house at the very least.

Hard to say what’s wrong other than the food was bland. Presentation was nice but the whole experience was underwhelming for Michelin quality. Not sure how they got their stars. If you don’t really care for good food and have lots of money, go to the modern and sit in an environment similar to a school dining hall.

The staff were lovely.
