The service is off the scale good - it would be a 10 on a 5 point scale - but, of course it would be for these costs and it's in a Four Seasons. The service was even friendly and engaged, not always something you get with a hyper-priced meal in a elite type of restaurant. But it was well-trained (of course) but also warm and helpful.
I wish the same could be said of the food. It was good, of course but not outstanding and distinctive, for the price, or for prices had as much. Disappointing in general. the shrimp cocktail was lovely, but the shrimp were not outstanding and fresh tasting.the tuna tartare was again just ok. the beef tartare a little more pleasing. honey nut squash soup pretty good. steakhouse cobb and lobster good but again nothing to write home about. one of the biggest disappointments and something that would sound petty is the duck fat fries - limp and nothing special. they should have been crisp, stand up well and melt in one's mouth. They weren't. huge fail. same with the mac and cheese - meh. probably the favorite dish was the Braised Short Rib Pappardelle. pretty good if not original. the New York strip was good, but again,nothing to justify the price or make it distinctive from other standout restaurants about half the price. Finally, we were disappointed with the smores desert...nothing to make us remember it. I don't mind paying the prices for this for an unbelievable dinner. I would try again, but in a way, I feel like the kitchen kind of meets the mediocre, while the service is off the charts.
