Out for my wife's birthday dinner having heard great reviews from others. On a Thursday night only a handful of others in the retaurant but we have made reservations and were seated quickly. Set in a converted house the ambience was comfortable however there was a slight but not overpowering musty odor - it did not detract from the experience to come. Menu has ala carte items however we chose the wine pairing menu - selecting the 5 course. We were both asked our allergies and foods that we would not eat - like sweetbreads, organ meats, fish etc.. From that point on we left it to the chef to create and we were not disappointed. First up A foam cheese and blood orange sorbet paired with champagne; second Apple, radicchio, walnut granola salad with apple cider viagrette paired with Tangent Savignon Blanc; third a Seward ahi Tuna paired with a rose; fourth a beautifully cooked deckle (rib eye crown) with carmalized cartots and cauliflower purée served on a slate tile with a Block Nine Pinoit Noir ( that was intense and wonderful); and finally fifth a hazelnut sorbet served alongside the lightest of ice creams divided into white chocolate, light chocolate, milk chocolate and the dark on a plate withh dark chocolate swirled sauce paired with a tawny port (delightful and without the pungent raisin taste often with a port). Staff were attentive and efficient and friendly. Our only albeit slight negative were the cocktails ordered - which if we had known the number of wines we would be served would have unnecessary - were both a disappointment. Our Dirty Martini was too heavily infused with olive brine and overwhelmed rather than complimented. Simlarly the St. Germaine infused martini also was too heavy handed. But the latter did not detract from a wonderful evening. Though pricing was below $150 it is still a value and well worth taking time to sample.
