WHAT: Sadly, I was at a private event so the food was served in 3 courses with 2 choices for each course only, feeling like a picnic box lunch to me. I just don’t get the policy of charging more for a private party at the rate of $150 per person, not including drinks, and you still can’t at least get the open menu when the six course tasting menu is only $115 per person in the regular dining room!
WHY: I don’t recommend here for a private party. This is my personal opinion of course, but I think if the restaurant would like to charge higher for a private party and give only 2 choices for the guests for each course, the food has to be WOW, not just nice.
The dining room might be a better experience but I don’t get the sense that the food would worth the price. So I will not going back there for another meal. I keep this restaurant under the category, “Go only when someone else is paying”.
