"I found it way above my expectations. and was so impressed with the creativity in the food. Overall, right on the top of my food experiences."
"Wow. What a tasting menu!!! ...lots of exciting dishes, super tasty and presented beautifully... I was a little nervous about having a place at the table instead of 'a table' but didn't need to be. A wonderful evening with great company and lots of fun... P.S. it's definitely worth having the wine flight as the various wines were delicious."
"The food was absolutely delicious.. Surprising and delightful combinations of flavours.. Brilliance pure and simple."
