A dinner to experience. Courteous staff, excellent environment. An exhilarating guide to every dish served. I have a newfound respect for the staff who are visually challenged. A must try.

The experience of dining in the dark just blew my mind, enhanced by the excellent service by the waiter. There are vegetarian friendly options, and the way the entire dining experience is set up is just out of this world. Would definitely visit again.

Was nervous & excited before heading in but it turned out the be a delight. Wonderful host "Marcus" helped us for the evening. Delicious meal. The dessert was the best of the best! No phones allowed in side so back to basics of conversing with your fellow friends.

The service is fantastic and the food was delicious....I asked for no seafood as I am allergic and they gave me a menu of delicious dishes that were so different.

This is definitely one of the most unique dining experiences that I have ever had. Completely pitch dark. I feel there's no difference between keeping your eyes open or close. Having the dining experience with all other senses but eyes is totally something new to me. Yet, I started to appreciate more for my ability to see. Glad to make... More
