Chef Pascal made the experience personal for us.

We book our reservation online which apparently isn't the best method. We were accommodated, graciously, however. Really enjoyed ourselves.

The food, the wine.

Atmosphere, professionalism could have been improved.

The Chef and his compassion.

That it was half price as it was, in NO way, worth what it was suppose to cost....$200.00!!!!! Couple at our table also agreed on what I have written. The meal and wines were good, but not worth the price.

Advertised as a CLASS but was just really a dinner with wine pairing. The guy presenting did not seem that knowledgeable about the wines, although pairings were very good. Wine portions were very small. Guy pouring and presenting was sweating profusely which kind of took away from the whole thing. His hair was dripping wet. Realize it is not his fault, but it was kind of gross. Also, time advertised on the coupon I printed out was wrong and it was lucky I called them as it was an hour earlier.
