    Great Experience

    WD-50 is definitely worth checking out. The molecular gastronomy fad has waned but this place is still a standout. The Mediterranean Bass was probably the best piece of fish I've ever eaten. We got to tour the kitchen after our meal as well, very cool.

    Worth trying once

    Unique. Entertaining. Quizzical. Convo Piece. Tasty at times (Eggs Benedict). Insists upon itself a bit. Pricey. Not a Michelin. Worth Trying Once.

    Disappointing

    Thought this was molecular gastronomy at its worst: gimmicky, over-complicated, precious. Was an inordinate amount of time put into the development and preparation of the food? I'm sure. But it did NOT translate into an amazing dining experience. Paid an exorbitant sum for my meal and still was served room temperature water. Service did not live up to the cost.

    Amazing but not for everybody

    This is one of the most unique dining experiences of my entire life and doubt I will ever experience anything close since the Chef is an artist. The food is fascinating with its play on flavors and tastes. It is a very cerebral foodie experience. My husband and I felt it was the equivalent of riding food roller coaster. It was filled with excitement, the highs and lows came more from our own personal tastes and I would not expect everyone to appreciate this experience but if you love food it is a must! Do the tasters menu and go for broke!

    Facinating!

    Service and Food were very good. Staff is well informed of each course. Totally new twist to fried chicken! was great as an app. Steak was great, Halibut and Bass were ok. Aerated Foie a must try, avoid the Soft Meringue dessert. Will go back for sure.

    Food like you've never had... but maybe there's a reason for that.

    We went here for dinner on a Friday night and tried the tasting menu. I had seen Wylie on Top Chef several times and was really curious about his style of preparing food. Our server was attentive but not pretentious or overbearing. The food was certainly "interesting" - for example, one of the items was a bagel (made out of ice cream) with smoked salmon and hardened cream cheese flakes. The concepts were great and the food "entertained" but I can't say it was always delicious. I think this place is worth a try if you don't mind the price tag- but now that I've experienced it, I'd probably not go again.

    Shocking Service; Generally Disappointing Food

    The expectations where high, I won't doubt that. Some of the dishes were amazing - the beef and bernaise; the scrambled egg ravioli. Others left something to be desired - bay scallops and bone marrow; foie gras and passionfruit (it shocking that we were disappointed by these dishes - the passionfruit was horrendous). On a brighter note, the wines were all generally awesome. But the service - I mean, this was literally the worst I have ever had at a restaurant. When you drop that much on a meal (food tasting and wine tasting) you expect some decent service. We didn't receive any. The best we did receive was when we were able to flag down a waitress from another table. The whole service thing really soured the whole group on the experience. I hope Wylie gets his servers act together soon.
