I have to agree with other recent reviews. Great service and ambience. I dined there for Valentine’s Day and the menu consisted of some regular menu items and some specials. I had the duck confit salad for my first course and the filet for my entree. The duck was overly salted which was disappointing. Otherwise, I would have really enjoyed the salad. The filet was served with asparagus and potatoes au gratin. Temperature for filet was great was well as seasoning. The potatoes were over salted as well. Dessert (creme brûlée) was underwhelming with a very thick sugar crust. Overall, disappointing but consistent with other reviews. So I wasn’t surprised. I was just hoping for a different outcome. My date was underwhelmed as well.

Perfect Valentine's date with my wife. We ate an early dinner (because I didn't plan ahead!) but it was wonderful. Our waiter was informative, funny and was clearly a foodie. Love this place.

They just can't get it together. While practically empty, we had to repeatedly ask for water and bread (which came with the check). The food itself is bland, uninspired, and overdressed. What happened to one of the best restaurants we had in the City, if not the whole West Coast?

I love, love, love the foie grass. My steak tartar was not exactly the way I like it prepared, needed a raw egg and some scallions or onions for crunch and zing. The service was excellent, our server left both of our plates until we were both finished, a rarity today to see things done correctly.
