Don't Go For Dinner--Go For Brunch.

The dinner gets bad reviews on service, etc...so lets not parry words. I'm giving three stars for that reason alone. But the Sunday Brunch is really a good deal. Something about the Sunday afternoon wait staff is quietly dignified, and Fournou's Ovens can't be beat when it comes to their champagne brunch. An endless fount combined with eggs benedict or their dungenous crab omlette really makes a person feel like they... view more

Valentine's Dinner Disaster: Terrible service, atmosphere and food!

After reading positive reviews, we decided to try out the restaurant for Valentine's day. It was beyond disappointing. We couldn't wait to get out of there. The atmosphere was NOT romantic--quite the opposite. It was stark, cold and depressing. The seats were very uncomfortable. We had wine and appetizers, then waited for over an hour to get our entrees. The food was very mediocre and tasted bland. The servic... view more

VALENTINE'S DAY DISASTER

WE EXPERIENCED ALMOST THE IDENTICAL EXPERIENCE AS THE PREVIOUS REVIEWER SO I ECHO HIS ACCOUNT. WE MADE A RESERVATION FOR 8PM AND WAS SEATED IN THE SAME PLACE AS HE WAS. WE ORDERED DRINKS, FIRST COURSES, DINNER AND A BOTTLE OF WINE. THE DRINKS CAME RIGHT AWAY AS DID THE WINE. WE FINISHEDD OUR DRINKS AND STARTED NURSING THE WINE WAITING FOR THE FOOD. AND HOUR AND 10 MINUTES LATER, I ASKED FOR THE CHECK AND THEY SA... view more

Horrible Customer Service!

I didn't even get a chance to try the food! We booked a reservation on Opentable for 2:30pm. As we were hurried to our seat, our server said we'd better hurry and order our food because he's leaving in a half an hour and they're closing. I don't know why they would accept a reservation for that time. We left as I did not want to be rushed. Also, there was no one in the restaurant and they sat us next to the kitc... view more

Very Disappointing Valentines

We had read good reviews of this restaurant, so were excited to try it out. What better night to try something new and romantic than Valentine's Day? When we arrived, the Hostess was turning a hotel guest away saying that they were completely booked out and that he would have to eat at the bar upstairs. This only added to our anticipation and expectation of an excellent gastronomic occaision.\r When we were led into... view more

Wonderful experience.

This Restaurant has an astounding wine list and the food is worth the extra money. \r A bit on the higher end $$$, this is an elegant experience that was perfect for our special occasion.

Exquisitely- presented and Tasty Mediterranean Cuisine. Extensive wine selection.

I learned about this restaurant right here on City Search and it certainly deserves the praises it has been getting. I had their four-course tasting menu which included the lobster and apple bisque soup, seared scallops in orange vinaigrette and the duck --- all of them were delicious and hearty. The menu itself is not all that ""exciting"" or ""exotic"" if you are looking for something entirely different but it is e... view more

Christmas Day experience

After making a reserveration well in advance, we were seated in what looked like a corridor, next to a vent emitting chilly air. I told the waiter I was cold and he responded that I should order some wine to warm up. Unpleasant ambience. The menu was set and looked good, but the food was insipid--not unique in any way, poorly presented, and not hot. Service was slow to get started. The final cost to us for 4 prix... view more

Wow!

Friends chose...My wife & I thought it was going to be a dud...We had a hard time finding it, but once there, we were flat out ""taken care of!"" and they know how to make a killer Martini. Our waiter showed us around and even explained the old art on the walls...the chef came out and explained their rare ovens and their history, etc. then started holding up peices of meat from across the room which has a visible ove... view more
