The Worst Experience of my life!

We arrived to an empty old night club which they were still cleaning to very indifferent staff. We were very quickly ushered into a black out room and sat down with our guide which are apparently ""Blind"" which we found out later are not and are wearing night vision glasses so they can see. Overall ""Terrible"" experience. Not for the scared or claustrophobic.

Must try

Seriously.....one of the best dinner experiences i have ever had. I surprised my husband ...and by the way it was a first time for me. I never thought eating in the dark ( pitch black to be exact ) would be so much fun! I am always up for new experiences and so is my husband. He was amazed the entire time. It was interestingly relaxing. Having one of your senses tuned down completely was truly exhilirating.
Try it and see......have fun!

You Got To Try This

This is an awesome experience. I wanted to take my girlfriend out for something different, she loves good food. This dining room is pitch black and you cannot see a thing. The purpose of this experience is to rely on your touch, smell and taste to guide you. You blindly select a meal and then you enjoy. The food was really awesome, the server was great and the experience was unforgettable. Really made for a great date.

had I only an infrared eye between the other 2

Nothing, plain nothing, is what you get. In terms of what you see. But they offer you the world of senses on a silver tray it is up to you to choose whether you want to take it and where you want to take it. Do you want to listen, smell, touch, or taste, or all at once. It was a concert of senses conducted by our lovely waiter Michael. Do yourself a favor and request him.

Awful...

don't waste your money. its awful. everything tasted like it came out of a can. they take advantage of the fact you can't see what you are eating.

Incredible food, great servce, Got to meet the chef!

What an amazing experience! To have your site taken away and rely on your other senses and trust everything will be OK. The food was incredible. 1. It started out with a prosciutto wrapped fig with a caponata relish. TANTALIZING! 2. then we got fresh bread and butter. 3. The salad was just popping in our mouth, so much going on, arugula, sweet tomatoes, amazing wine dressing, truffle cheese and topped with a bruchetta and toast, I must say the best I have ever had in the light or in the dark. 4. I had the Salmon and my partner had the Filet Mignon, OK, the Salmon was the most delightful i have ever consumed, not dry and it just melted in your mouth. It was made with a Caribbean spice topped with a sweet chili. Amazing! My partner had the Filet Mignon with goat cheese sun dried tomatoes and roasted red peppers with a sweet wine sauce that made me have an orgazm, I swear i did! 5. we both love Tiramisu and we are very critical when we have it. THE BEST IN LOS ANGELES! We got to meet the Chef for the evening, Chef Michael Parise, not sure if he is always on board, he said he would be there temporarily but he gave us his card, he owns Cannoli Kings Catering. Dining in the dark was a great experience and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who would like increase the other senses in their body. The service was wonderful and overall first class. I hope it stays that way!

Good place to go that is dark

Pros: Good place to go on the third date.

Cons: It's the opitome of LA Phoney. I gave it three stars because it is good for the third date.

Exhilarating experience

I just went last Friday and it was such an amazing experience. It was a bit scary at first being in pitch darkness, but you hear voices around you so you know you're not alone and you really learn to use your sense of touch. I was holding hands with my date most of the night. The food was pretty decent and the portions were big, I couldn't even finish all of it. I loved the game of guessing different objects in a bag just by feeling the objects. And our waiter Michael was wonderful, he even serenaded us at the end of the meal.

Great Concept - Not so great food

Concept was great but it was definitely not worth the money! I've had much better tasting food and more filling at Lawry's or Morton's. The portions at Opaque were small and the taste was horrible.
