The French Laundry is totally expensive, but hard to beat if you are looking for the best restaurant and a great experience. Not only is the food terrific, but the service is outstanding. Taking a tour of the kitchen is a nice plus!

I wish I can tell great things about The French Laundry, but no matter how hard we tried to like it, we did not. The service was excellent nobody is going to argue that. However, the food lacked in several ways, great presentation but the...More

It's $400 per person upfront not refundable and then you had wines, supplements. We ended up with a $600 bill per person. I'm not sure there are that many restaurants out there which are worth that much and the French... More
