We didn’t expect the fantastic cuisine and it really blew us away. Each dish was a masterpiece and we couldn’t be happier with the entire experience. Not to be missed.

I don't recall the prices but comparable to the places we frequent in Houston. The service was above par, even brought us some free samples of new dish they were trying.
