I was most impressed with the service which was not only very friendly, but very accommodative. It was the first time I've eaten in a fine dining establishment where the entire table is not required to order same tasting menu. We were able to try 2 different tasting menus, had the option of ordering a la carte along with a tasting menu, and even had 2 persons sharing one tasting menu while swapping out the seafood items. Everything was tasty and beautifully presented and the theatrics of the of the chocolate bomb dessert collapsing in front of our eyes when they poured the hot sauce on it was entertaining. We appreciated chatting with the chef after the meal. There's valet parking if you're driving.

I really am not going to write allot about this place. Its reputation speaks for itself.

Like a good building, one should experience fine dining without ever being lost or overstimulated by non-essentials. This place is about good food and wine. Nothing else.

It ticks all the right boxes.

No where else in the world will you ever have a menu so elaborate or tailored to suit your requirements. They catered to my partners wheat and gluten free diet. From booking to leaving the restaurant, Arzak makes sure to take care of you. We were invited to meet Elena Arzak and take a tour of the kitchen which was a sight to behold. The food was as expected, different and flavourful. The basel sorbet still haunts us.

This was an unusual and superb dining experience. We ordered the tasting menu paired with wine. All of the food was fabulous and presented in a beautiful, creative manner. Within the menu we were offered different fish for the fish course etc.. The service and attention to detail were exceptional. The chef made a point of greeting us at the table and signing our menu on the way out.
