Food was great and the price was fair but the service was horrendous! Slow and inattentive. Not sure if it's because we're Asians or that we chose not to order their 1996 Du Cru.
There's down-home "chowda," lobsters from Maine, coho salmon from the Olympic peninsula, and a smattering of exotics, like ikura, uni, and razor clams.
Couples celebrating special occasions and large groups love the three-, five-, and eight-course dessert tastings paired with wine.
Hands down one of the best meals we had in LA. Michelin stars are well-deserved! Get the tasting with the wine pairings!

Try the seaweed bread and the bacon roll when they come around with the basket. You can't go wrong with anything here because all the food is scrumptious. The lobster crepe appetizer is a MUST.
One of LA's high-end dining. If you love seafood then you'll nicely pamper yourself here. I love how light some dishes are in terms of flavor profile, but none of them disappoints!
