Ok, this wasn't in our business budget so it was out of pocket. Well worth it. We tried the tasting menu and I couldn't believe how prompt the service was and how smooth everything went, especially since we had 12 courses. Each one unique and presented with such elegance. This is the type of experience you never forget. It will go down in history for one of the best meals if not the best meal I have ever had. I am originally from Santa Barbara and now live in Wasilla Alaska. One thing I miss about California is all the excellent restaurants to chose from. This one is a must. It is spendy but well worth it. For foodies, this is heaven on earth. Probably the best restaurant in LA in my opinion. Such passion goes into their food and it is seen in the quality and presentation of their dishes. Cheer Melisse. That third Michelin star should be knocking on your door. I am so happy for tripadvisor. It really gives people the information they need to make their dining destinations.
