Try going with a party larger than 8 or 10. You have no choice but to dine from the pre-set $125 per head menu that have have predetermined for you. You'd think that if this was the preferred style of the restaurant for large groups, they'd choose the most impressive items from the menu to serve that group. That just wasn't the case, I'm not saying the food was a total disaster, probably at 2 out of 10 items were pretty good. But I agree with the idea of this place having a short view for their business, that is, get em in, charge them A TON and don't worry about return visits. For example, you would assume that Bottled Water would be included in a $125 per head meal, but we were surprised to find $77 of Voss Water charges on our check, AFTER they had just walked up to the table and continued to pour and pour without that indication that it wasn't included in the meal. Oh and if you want some coffee, again, very reasonable to expect it to be included, NOPE, they don't even offer regular coffee, just capuccino and espresso at $5 a piece for 6oz serving.
As for the atmosphere, I will say that they did spend a bit of money on their JBL sound and Martin light system, BUT it wasn't used properly by any stretch. A very poor excuse for a DJ trainwrecked overly loud music and movie bits together while the "dance club" lights remained on pre-programmed movements throughout the night.
12 of us received our check expecting our $125 per person plus drinks, instead we received a check that was for OVER $2400! The shocked looks were priceless, as we were all expecting something a bit expensive but this was WAY over the top and certainly not warranted.
For an experience that is supposed to be fun, part restaurant, part nightclub as the slogan goes, turns out it wasn't even part fun, let alone a restaurant or nightclub done on par with ANY of the city's average locations. And to be clear, this is not really a nightclub at all, just a really loud, below average restaurant.
Pros: atmosphere and pricing way out of whack
Cons: atmosphere and pricing way out of whack
