You get to choose from a 3, 5 or 7 course meal and then they do the rest. It’s all very tasty. They change the menu quite often I heard but you’ll definitely walk away pleased. Service is extraordinary.

The choice is a three, five, or seven course menu. Very little explanation given prior to serving, which is fine by me. We had the five course. Wine pairings were excellent. Soup course was fabulous, as was the main course halibut. We left pleasantly full,...More

I went with my boyfriend for my birthday, he made a note in the reservation that I have a dairy allergy. When we got there, there were minimal options they could do without dairy therefore my experience was average, I wouldn’t go back

The food was amazing. The 5 course was perfect for a nice dinner. I wish they had more variety in cocktails, or offered a wine pairing with the meal. But otherwise, the meal was truly perfection. It was food as art, visually and tasty!

Very inventive and delicious! Did the 5 course dinner and the portions were very generous. Cannot believe how wonderful the beet tartare and squash blossom were! We will definitely be back.

As you will see, I'm a loyal fan of this restaurant. The food is always remarkable and exciting to eat, and the service is top-notch. Chef Sean Murray Smith clearly agonizes over every detail of every dish. The tastes, textures, etc. must all fit together,...More

I suggest calling them. They are planning to close for expansion/ renovation, but have not decided on a date yet. So yes, they are definitely open -- some friends were there a couple of days ago.
