    The main drawback is the cost, otherwise it's a great flagship store. The restaurants aren't that great btw. Good place for lunch sandwiches & snacks. The main bar is cool, & good for a midday drink.

    Some of the little restaurants inside the site are good (enjoy the beef yakisoba a lot) and the bulk food/spice section is great, but everything is so expensive that I avoid WF whenever possible

    When ordering tacos to go, have them put the tacos in a bowl rather than a bag. It reduced spillage and makes it look so much better.
