The food

One of our favorite restaurants in the world

Nov 7, 2014 Mario IL, United States

Food with beverage pairings!

Nice setting and helpful, friendly wait staff!

I am still too disappointed and I had such high expectations. I can't think of anything I like because the tasting menu was executed so poorly.

Very very disappointed in the tasting menu. Was not what I had expected at all and I have had great experience w/ travel zoo deals. This was such a disappointment and this is the first time I have ever written such a bad review. The quality of the food served was a joke and it is not worth paying for this dining experience. I expected quality and original.. tofu and ramen as part the tasting menu?? I expected quality farm fresh to table - as advertised. We did not get any of that; in fact, it felt like the food served were just whatever they had in the kitchen- leftovers. I would not go back. The hype about this restaurant is over-rated.

This promotion is great! Interacting with the chef is definitely a unique experience. We enjoyed the whole meal thoroughly.
