The food, venue and service were impeccable. The wine list, though quite long, is not impressive. The mark-ups are too high (sometimes 300+%) and they no longer have the mantle for 'world's best BYO restaurant', as they don't offer it any more. The selection of dessert wines is poor. Having studied the wine list in advance, the best we found was $380 but somehow it was $750 on their on-site wine list. Far too much! But we weren't impressed by the 'matching wines' - price, quantity, quality or suitability - last time, so had our second choice. As I said, really excellent food - quality of ingredients, combinations of flavours and preparation. Fabio, our waiter, was brilliant as well. We opted for the oysters as an extra starter, and they were superb. Every course, and plenty of free 'inclusions', was delicious. We couldn't fit the cheese extra later, so well-proportioned quantities - though probably light for big eaters. Unfortunately, we were truly shocked to be told the coffee was from a pod machine. This really is unforgivable at this level. When we complained, we were given free coffee to see if we could be 'converted'. It was as good as this stuff gets, but thin and characterless. We think Tetsuya's is worth the money, but needs to rebalance its wine list (and reduce some of the phenomenal mark-ups) and possibly offer some a la carte options for people who might come regularly.
