My wife and I just had the five course chef sampling. Each of the courses from the beet salad to the boar chop was superb. Maybe a bit salty but that may just reflect my own limited salt diet. Every dish really was a work of art with a wonderful array of tastes to match. The evening went so well from the valet parking ($7) to an enlightening conversation with one of the three sommeliers. It really is an excellent place to dine for a special occasion.
