    The most spectacular dish, one I'll remember to my dying day, is the raw milk panna cotta, glazed with an abalone gelee and strewn with petals of abalone and radish across the smooth, shiny top. Read more

    Everything was wonderful! The scallops was exceptional. So was the roast duck. I love the play on flavours and texture --- really awakening the senses. Def worth the drive for a nice dinner! 👌🏽

    The "Into the Vegetable Garden" dish is perhaps the most stunning example of the grower/chef partnership here. Served with "edible dirt," the dish is comprised of more than 30 vegetables and herbs. Read more

    I suggest the wine (beverage) pairing, but if you opt against it do get their custom made Mercy Mercy sour beer. I don't like beer very much, but it was hands down the best drink in the whole pairing.

    Unforgettable meal. The service; impeccable, like a choreographed dance. This isn't just food, it is edible art, each dish more exquisite than the next. Tasting menu with 25 tomatoes is the way to go.

    Pay attention to the vegetal rarities from Love Apple Farm that appear in intriguing places in chef David Kinch's erudite dishes. The service also has the tight choreography of a Blue Angels squad: Read more

    The tasting menu keeps changing incrementally. Keep in mind the tasting menu takes about 3 hours to finish.

    Exceptional in every way. About 10 plates spread across 3 hours - a fine dining production. Well worth its ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Michelin rating.

    This restaurant has a carefully cultivated relationship with the owner of a nearby farm, from whom he buys all his produce. Try the "Vegetable Garden" dish for a masterpiece of more than 30 veggies.
