My wife and I recently went for dinner.
I opted for the 7 course tasting menu with wine, wife had the 4 course.
Highlights included the incredible mussels escabeche that had flavors out of this world, the Humboldt squid which was not anything like what we expected, the ling cod with lentils, and the sloping hills pork that absolutely melted in your mouth. Obviously the chef knows his stuff and uses some great ingredients.
The cucumber salad was limp and not up to snuff.
Desserts were good but not great, possibly influenced by the fact one was a plum dish and neither of us really likes plums.
Overall the food was extremely good, and we both were very stuffed by the last course. Portion of the wine pours were adequate, and the wine pairings were good if not overly inventive.
I have to agree that the service could use some improvement. It was not busy on the night we went, but sometimes service was lacking. At one point early on our server asked if the pace of dishes was good for us, we said it was but then things slowed down! I waited 40 minutes between a course and my wife started to get edgy, as she did not have a course coming at that time. A bonus was that the kitchen sent out a fifth course for my wife even though she ordered the four course menu. I would be afraid to be here if the restaurant was fully booked because I think service could really plummet.
Generally I find it difficult to opt for a tasting menu because I like to be in control of what I eat. Here I received some dishes that I would not have ordered and enjoyed them immensely.
The bill before tip came to $280, not cheap but it is fine dining.
