Great restaurant. We went for the 8 course chefs tasting menu and every dish was vastly different, creative, yummy and presented really well. Excellent food. The service was on point with all the right touches of a fine dining experience. The only issue we had was the sommelier service lacked slightly. The sommelier came to the table at the beginning of the meal and did not return until the meal had started. When a lady came to drop a dish it turned out she was another sommelier and helped us with wine selection although asked us about budget when we asked for her to pick something that would pair well. Then the male sommelier came back and gave us selections and we finally started drinking wine by the third course. The wine was excellent but would have been nice to have had it a little quicker into service. That was not enough to deter us and we would definitely return and recommend this restaurant. Throughly enjoyed our meal and evening.

Compared to the price level and the two Michelin stars we were not impressed by the food.
Two or three of the eight course meal were very good, but we expected more.

The waiters were friendly and professional, but made a couple of mistakes: They mixed sparkling and still water in our glasses and they misspelled my girlfriends name in the birthday cake.

Furthermore it took to much time to get the menu and before they took our order. Therefore we had to rush through the eight courses.

Overall it was good food and a fine experience, but I've had better for under half the price.

Exquisite food presentation and taste, service, ambiance. Classy and superb. A notch above all the established top-tier NYC restaurants. Peek into the kitchen -- astounding! Put this at the top of one's list for "special occasion" dining. We'll be back. Thank you.

Great food and friendly service but at a 2 it is not ok to completely miss the wine service to the main course ... I had to point out that the wineglasses and wine was missing and when I did so they moved to get it served. They did however not remove the plates until I pointed out that they needed to that while the wine was served so we could enjoy warm food with the wine. The apologized of course but did nothing else to remedy the error. Unworthy a 2. Too bad but again food was great.
