The cosmo was better than the usual. Not sure what they did but it was more peach colored. But the best part of the night? The Tapas food: shishito peppers, papas bravas and grilled oyster mushrooms. Incredible.

I came to Extra Virgin looking for lighter and smaller portions. I was not disappointed. Food was great and service great. Michael Smith, next door, same entrancvelooked a bit more formal and will merit a visit upon return.

We have eaten here several times over the years and always enjoyed, but this trip was by far the best. Perhaps it helped to have gone in the company of two people who eat at Michael Smith VERY OFTEN and are treated as honored guests!...More

I've taken my wife for our anniversary and would definitely recommend. We choose a 7 course dinner and where very pleased with each course. The wine pairings where perfect. This is fine dining so expect to pay for the quality.

My husband and I have been here about 3-4 times and each time was excellent. Michael Smith won the James Beard award in 1999 and has an extensive menu that varies with the season. My husband always gets the pork roast and I alternate between...More
