    Tasting menu and service were excellent. The monkfish and the squash soup--mmmm. Truffles made an appearance in many dishes, which I loved. Save room for extra complimentary dessert!

    Fodors, one of our professional reviewers, says, "The caviar platter is served on a stunning coral display and the 14-course prix-fixe menu ... is enough luxury to make anyone feel like royalty." Read more

    This high-end spot has the traditional fare (caviar, tartare) as well as a wide variety of creative new dishes: Moroccan-spiced Scottish salmon with Meyer lemon and Israeli couscous is a recent fave.

    Classy dining with a unique twist, TRU not only features artistic dishes, but also features works by world-renowned artists such as Andy Warhol, Gerhard Richter, and the like; be sure to look around!

    Without a doubt, the most unique food presentation I have ever seen at a restaurant. The 3 plus hour experience is worth it for special occasions. A+ Service and taste.

    Absolutely spectacular dining experience. Chef Anthony Martin amazes you with every plate. Chef's tasting menu and Valentine's Day tasting menu were both fantastic. Wine list includes 1800 selections!

    Gale Gand makes the most amazing desserts; go with anything chocolate, especially her Chocolate Pots de Creme with Salted Caramel Sauce and Black Pepper Whipped Cream. Just delicious.

    Sorrel and Buttermilk, a dish that resembles a terrarium, is one of the first things Tru serves on its $158 tasting menu. Read more

    Opt for the 7-course instead of the full tasting menu - all of our favorite dishes were on there.

    Overall, a decent experience. I have 2 prime gripes, however. 1) I don't think anyplace is worth $150 per person for food. That's obscene. 2) Frenchie maitre d' is a major snob. Jacket required. Read more

    The semi-private table over the lounge is absolutely incredible. This is the way to enjoy TRU.
