Food is amazing. Sometimes the servers forget things, but overall wonderful experience. It was for my birthday so was hoping for a little extra special something. Mostly did not disappoint.

The restaurant is a convenient location to the Hotel Murano. Service was slow (glacier rate) despite minimal patronage. Expensive- the menu was overly ambitious and the entrees did not live up to the hype. Spent a lot for a little in terms of satisfaction.

The food was great, scallops cooked to perfection and I loved the cauliflower with tomatoes and cheese. I also really appreciated that gave us as quiet a table as possible so my husband could hear me. Wonderful dinner!

Great ambience and service. Food was good but we do not feel it warranted the price in most cases. We will however be back for a special occasion.
