I have read most of the reviews and just 'gotta tell ya' -- we had an excellent first experience before an ASO concert last week. I had done my research before making a reservation, so understood the menus and, more importantly, knew that this is a fairly expensive place to eat. Being an experienced ""foodie,"" I was not looking for an all-you-can-eat buffet, but excellent, well-thought-out food and service in a comfortable and beautiful atmosphere. This is exactly what was provided!
If you like walnut paneling and over-stuffed chairs, this ain't the place for you. The atmosphere is modern and cutting edge -- things I appreciate. Some would not.
Service was excellent throughout, and the food was simply art -- fitting since it sits in the middle of an extensive fine arts complex.
Was it expensive? Yes. Was it a good value -- absolutely. We visited for a special occasion, and indeed it was. I wish I could afford to eat here nightly, but for someone in my financial bracket, this is a fantastic ""special occasion"" destination -- particularly if you are experiencing a performance or exhibit in the surrounding complex. Bravo!
