I started with Diver Scallops, which were very fresh and paired well with an avocado-yuzu puree. I was disappointed that instead of purple sticky rice, jasmine rice was used. My friend had the escargot, which was completely overwhelmed by

Pros: Interesting dishes

Cons: Not so well executed

I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO A DOG!!!! THE GENERAL MANAGER WAS RUDE AND OUR WAITRESS CAME TO THE TABLE A TOTAL OF 4 TIMES!! IT TOOK OVER 20 MINUTES TO GET A GLASS OF WINE. IT TOOK HER OVER 40 MINUTES TO TAKE OUR DINNER ORDER. SHE NEVER CAME TO ASK HOW EVERYTHING WAS, NEVER APOLOGIZED FOR HAVING US WAIT FOREVER FOR OUR DRINK ORDERS. THE BAR WAS A TOTAL OF 10 FEET AWAY FROM OUR TABLE AND SHE STILL COULDNT GET OUR SECOND ROUND OF DRINKS IN UNDER 20 MINUTES. WE WERE SO DISGUSTED WITH THE SERVICE THAT IT RUINED ANY CHANCE OF ENJOYING THE MEAL. I WOULD NEVER RETURN, AND I WILL MAKE SURE THAT I TELL PEOPLE NOT TO GO THERE SINCE THEY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IT TAKES TO ACTUALLY SERVE A CUSTOMER.

My husband and I went to Stained Glass for what we hoped would be a romantic dinner for two.While the wine selection, service and food were very good, the proximity of other diners and the noise level due to the hardwood floors and high wood ceilings made this a meal we wanted over quickly. The tables were so close, we could hear every word the people at the next table were saying.And, it became loud and noisy quickly. The "flights of wine"~ 3 half glasses of similar types of wines ~ was an interesting and nice way to try several kinds of wine. And the appetizers for two, were tasty although a bit too rich. While the wine and service are big pluses, they aren't big enough to overcome the noise and lack of ambiance.

Pros: the service and the wine

Cons: the noise, proximity of other tables and the lack of ambiance.

This restaurant's decor is worthy of a visit alone, and this is also a good place to cozy up to the bar and get a wine recommendation from the bartender. They serve excellent food that's beautifully presented. Go on the special tasting nights for food and accompanying wines.

PROS: great wine and food in a beautiful setting
CONS: can be pricey
