    Best meal I've ever had in my life. Try the tasting menu. Each dish is a work of art.

    Super small portions don't pair well with the high prices.

    This sophisticated restaurant inside the Belden-Stratford building drips with indulgence from start to finish. Choose the five-course prix fixe dinner or go all-out with the 12-course tasting menu. Read more

    Hit the tableside cocktail cart then pick from 2 nightly prix-fixe menus. Choose valet—street parking is at a premium. – Green Guide Editor

    Ask for Justin Arnett who is EXTREMELY knowledgable on EVERYTHING here from the foods, their origins, the preparations, down to the uses and the "why" for each glass, utensil, etc. Highly recommended!

    4 of 4 stars. "A lot of words have been used to describe L2O-- minimalist, compelling, any superlative you care to name-- but until recently, playful was not among them." Phil Vettel, Chicago Tribune

    If asked to get the supplemental scallop with truffle, do it. Worth every dollar.

    The bacon twists are extraordinary ... I requested them more than a couple of times :-P not to take anything away from the excellent Singular tasting menu

    The smoked salmon with artichoke, pumpernickel, smoked crème fraîche, and beet is out of this world!

    Try the Forest mushrooms from our 100 Best list: Founding chef Laurent Gras left. Michelin took away two stars. When we ate this wild and brooding mushroom dish at L2O, we couldn’t have cared less.

    L20. Described by Travel + Leisure as a "seafood temple," diners certainly worship at the altar of delicate and flavorful dishes,

    They can flawlessly substitute for any halal/kosher dietary restriction, the food is magical, the service is perfect. L2O earns it's Michelin stars. Edible flowers, gold leaf, art on plates!

    Outrageous sweetbreads for a restaurant specializing in raw fish. Although you hear not to fill up on bread, go ahead and butter those mini pain-au-laits and bacon twists. They're unparalleled. Read more

    food's excellent but short of spectacular. Alinea is a superior choice in the price range. wine flight is mediocre

    Ever heard of akagai, sagoshi, kanburi? They’re all fish served up at this elegant Asian-inflected seafoodery. Don’t miss the house-made anchovy brioche or the delectable praline soufflé.

    Impecible service, but beware that mostly everything u see on the menu will be "deconstructed" when u get it! I.e. "salted cod" = foam in a cup. Delicious, but nothing's what you'd expect!

    Poached halibut is a favorite — lush and buttery with a whimsical parsley meringue disk that dissolves on the tongue. Read more

    Do a tasting menu with wine pairing. Expensive, but worth it. Their wines are amazing -- the best I've ever had -- and they pair so well. Food & service were both great.
