I have eaten at many top restaurants around the world, and I have always valued both the food and service equally - especially at a restaurant where you pay top-dollar. When we first arrived, we waited for 10 minutes before a maitre'd even

I question the palate of anyone who doesn't recognize the genius of this chef. As for the waitstaff, I've never been remotely disappointed; I get the feeling Handke would not suffer fools gladly. \r

Pros: Delectable food

Cons: Not a place to "see and be seen"--sometimes diners are dressed in casual attire

We have never had a bad meal here. Best time to go is weeknites though. Avoid crowded weekend evenings. The only negative experience we've had is an over boisterous patron who wanted everyone to know he was with some semi-famous artist.
