Outstanding on all dimensions. Leaves nothing to be desired, even comparing to Michelin-starred restaurants. Service was friendly, efficient and highly knowledgeable. Food was outstanding: creative (without being overly so), well executed. Wine pairing was equally good. Highly recommend!!!

Most guests will feel more comfortable in slacks than jeans, although the bar area is more casual. Your service staff are in suits and ties, though you are not required either.
