My husband and I have a job that takes us all over the world. We live in NY City and eat at many fine restaurants. Our recent experience at Tabu was one of the best we've had in years! The place is small, yes, but that just adds to the charm. With so many chain, unimaginative restaurants out there, Tabu Grill is an amazing find! The staff was fun, personable and professional all at once. We had a table that allowed us to watch the chefs at work and it was not only entertaining, it was impressive as well. Everyone in the place made us feel as though we were their personal guests. The wine was a fun mix of non conventional old and new world selections. The food was amazing! We had the scallops and the foie gras to start with and, in all of our travels, we've yet to taste better than what we had at Tabu. The Filet and crab/avacado stuffed tuna was PERFECT! We finished off with a white chocolate panna cota and a pineapple upside down cake. There were only 3 lovely girls as servers that night and all 3, at some point stopped by to service and chat with us. All lovely, and freindly!. The chefs were professional and a joy to watch. We will recommend going to Tabu Grill to all our friends that head out to California for vacation and we will make sure to reserve a table each and every time we are there!
Pros: Service, food, music, fun energy, quaintness
