Waiter was very nice.

Food was good, not great. Deal wasn't overly impressive.

Aside from the sensational food and classy surroundings, the staff is attentive, friendly, helpful, playful, generous and welcoming.

When we arrived, a bit early for our reservation to enjoy a drink at the bar, we were (politely) informed the bar wasn't open because the bartender called in sick. We were surprised; how does a high-end eatery NOT have a bartender available? We were shown to the bar and approached, very quickly, by the GM and a waiter, who, as it turned out, was our server for the evening. What could have been a disastrous start was easy averted into one of the most pleasant parts of our experience; we spoke with the GM at length about numbers topics and had a great time with him.
