While the concept is greatly appreciated, it's easy to see that the owner of this place clearly has never worked in a single restaurant.

Food: 2.5 stars
For the total bill of $65 including 2 kinds of tea service (Russian and English) we got 2 kinds of tea, good smoked trout, good scone and wilted and discolored fruits and vegetable. When you are paying that much, you at least want your food to be not old.

Atmosphere: 4 stars
Can't complain about the setting here: right in front of the water on top of the Moscone Center, serene, very Neo-Asian decor and beautiful bathroom. This is where the owner spent the most money and thinking and effort. However, the bench and chairs are bit too high for the tables and they are uncomfortable. Great ambient music.

Service: 3 stars
The servers here are not experienced. They are nice, but really that's about it. Again, if your total bill comes out to be that high, you want good service.

I probably won't be back.
