We came here to celebrate our friend's 30th birthday. The staff were attentive and helpful. I ordered the sea bass - delicious! Flavored well and served with complimenting vegetables.

Elegance and opulence in the Civic Center area.

This is a great special occasion restaurant, wonderful food and superb service, but you expect this at this price tag. Not for the light of wallet!

The rooms (up and down) are lovely, with a timeless Art Nouveau feel. Very romantic

Went here for a friend's birthday and tried the taster's menu. Food was delicious- But be ready b/c this is def one of those spots where you are paying for small portions, ambiance, and all that good stuff. Would go for special occaissions, but the hefty price tag doesn't make it a regular spot for me.

I had a chance to go to this restaurant for a media dinner and have to say that the food was amazing.

Service was very good as well and we had dinner in one of the private rooms on the 2nd floor.

Traci Des Jardins and her wonderful team could create a 7 star meal in a shack, however, this restaurant is romantic and gorgeous. I like the fact more jeans are seen sitting at the bar -- rather like another Zuni on early week day

I enjoyed the food and the service. I had the grapefruit salad with crab and aioli, which was tasty and blended an interesting flavor of citrus. The croutons were soggy; that could have been eliminated from the dish. The sole was saltier
