We reserved for a table, but was shown one at the back. The host asked us if we'd rather wait for a corner table. We decided to do just that and have a couple of drinks at the bar. We got the tasting menu with wines. Everything was perfect! What are you waiting for, go on a date!

I've been here several times for all different occassions. The food is always very good, the service is always great, and the decor never fails to impress.

i had high expectations for this place but i was very disappointed. the staff here is extremely snotty and the food was below average. i ordered the scallops and while they were good, they were not at all great for their high price. in addition, it was appetizer size-how can 4 scallops fill someone up for an entree? my friend ordered the steak and it was chewy and tasteless. to top everything off, the waiters kept coming by every 2 minutes to take away our plates which was so annoying. overall all the atmosphere is stuffy and the food is overpriced and tasteless. i will not be returning.

My husband and I went for restaurant week and we both loved it! The ambiance is beautiful, the food was great, and our service was perfect. Highly recommended!! Even though it was restaurant week, the portions weren't too small (except maybe for the scallops) and the food quality was extremely high.

I went to dine for winter restaurant week and even though i requested the "garden" area after reading this suggestion in a review, they seated right next to the kitchen on the 2nd floor. The first floor has a very nice garden, beautiful chandeliers and a live pianist: very romantic! the 2nd fl is not bad, just not as nice as the 1st one. The food was amazing, but was more like a tasting. for appetizer, i had rolls of pasta with duck confit, very tasty. My friend had the polenta soup that was also pretty good and filling. For entree, I had two (yes, 2!!!) scallops (noticed after my meal that another person was served 3...perhaps that person didnt order from the rest wk menu???) with some barley in a really good sauce. My friend had the hanger steak (reaaaally soft and well seasoned) and the salmon which wasnt bad either. Desserts were not bad, i had the orange sorbet cake and my friend had the chocolate one. Service was a little slow (it was pretty busy that night) but good. Definitely visit if u wanna try it, but stop by Papaya's dog around the corner if u're looking to be filled.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here last night, and we were pleasantly surprised. Neither of us had been to the restaurant in more than 20 years and had not been interested in it. Then we heard the food had improved, so we gave it a try. The food was quite good slightly asian influenced, and tasty. The amuse bouche of apple cheddar soup with a parmesan tuile was particularly good, as were the desserts. But it was all much better than expected, food wise. Service not so much. It was ok, but should have been much sharper given the prices. Check came without being asked for (and the place was not full) and then we had to wait for the credit card to be picked up. It felt like no one was managing the waitstaff. Service was adequate, but didn't add to the experience. Atmosphere, of course, is lovely.

Well, this place is a well known institution that me and my girlfriend tried for a nice romantic dinner a few weeks ago. When we arrived, we were excited to see the warm atmosphere, the piano playing in the background and overall decadence of the restaurant. We were then promptly seated at the worst table in the whole restaurant, a drafty noisy table for two right next to the kitchen. After requesting to be moved, we were then seated at another drafty table 5 feet from the one we were at. I would recommend you request to be seated downstairs in the "garden" area if you decide to go there. As for the food, you have an option of a prix fixe or tasting menu. This place is incredibly expensive and they tack on an extra $6 if you order the Wellington, since I guess the $75 prix fixe doesn't cover the cost of it. Anyhow, the Wellington was ordered medium rare and came out well done. My venison was actually cooked perfectly, but was a touch dry. Overall it was not a memorable experience and wouldn't go back. You go to this place for the atmosphere, so make sure you get it instead of a cold seat by the kitchen.
