Highly overrated. the lobster ravioli was just awful. lacked a nice sauce and was tasteless. the artichoke appetizer was unmemorable. the only memorable thing were the amazing flowers to watch not to eat. the champagne was not cold enough and neither was the white wine.

This is one of the prettiest restaurants ever -- small and intimate with stunning flower arrangements on every table. The staff was excellent, attentive but not cloying. The food and wine were superb -- don't miss the Dover sole with mustard sauce and the fantastic...More
