Santa Monica, California
March 1, 2001
The food was the same quality as we were used to though the menu had more of an European flavor as would be expected. Though many of the dishes made use of a mix of different of different regions.
The whole dining experience was great from the food, to the atmosphere, to the service. I would recommend making a stop here. The place definitely keeps the L.A. feel though. It is a place where people go to be seen. So if you go dress sharp and have a little bit of attitude. But at the same time the staff didn’t act snobby at all, they were very friendly and we had a great experience.
Of course it didn’t hurt things that my fiancé had met the owner in L.A. and he happened to be there that night. He remembered her and we got a great table and a couple of rounds of free drinks.
