We have been there on boxing day and therefore it was a set menu. The different courses were all cooked great and had nice flavors. The service did a good job and the wine pairing was also matching the food.

Took an overseas guest and it was not a good experience. Wine recommended by somelier was sub standard..Reschke Rufus 2011. We asked the somelier to taste it because it was dreadful and undrinkable....he said it was ok and refused to change it. This was the beginning of the bad experience. Our table was ignored, no service...had to even get up for water, pour our own wine which we had to drink since we paid $70, and at the end of the evening had to get up to ask for bill. We complained about the whole experience and Manager said to write about it...he couldn't do a thing! Uggggh!!! who would want this!
