    Unbelievable food. Must gets are the butternut squash blossom (though seasonal) and Hawaiian walu butterfish--it just melts in your mouth.

    The food was good. The support staff seemed on top of things. Our waiter/server (Marshall) was awful. We weren't event sure he was our person because he only came by twice.

    I can only speak for desserts. I've had ricotta fruit tart and a peach pie and both of them were superb. The pastry and the balance between tartness and creamy elements were top notch.
