What a unique experience! Each course was delicious and you never knew what was coming, but it was always amazing. Everything was delicious and the drinks were just as good. I hope everyone gets to experience it.

A little out of the way, but certainly worth a visit. The food kept coming and coming. The wine kept coming and coming. Everyone gets served the same dish at the same time. It was not a busy night so it didn't take long to...More
