So bad that even I felt shame for them. 1/23/2011

We had just moved here Nov. 2008 and Valentines day was coming up. We had looked at ads and decided to go to Valentien. They promised a 5 course dinner for a fixed price (if I recall) of $65 per person. No drinks included. I am personally a small eater so had no worries that I would not have enough. WRONG! The servings were almost invisible they were so small. This was an opportunity for any place to really shine, to put on their best. The staff was cold and unfriendly. Funny that when a place that specializes in wine finds you are not a wine drinker, they lose all interest in you as a customer. At $65 each they could have served a very nice dinner and everyone would have gone home happy. That was not the case here. Many of us were there for the first time (and last) The restaurant has only themselves and their staff to thank for the many potential customers they lost that night and that certainly included us . Not only that but people do talk and share opinions on restaurants. They might have made a killing with their small offerings that evening and really saved on food cost. All around us people were talking about the small servings and bad service, I wish that every one who went there Valentines day 2009 would write in and give their review, often we think someone was just having an off day. Not the case here. I know it was certain our very worst Valentines day . There were no winners that night. more

ok but over-rated 5/30/2010

Friendly staff, enjoyable ambiance, but quite expensive, and the food really wasn't that notable. I really wanted to like it more. I heard the best time to go is lunch when the prices are more reasonable. more

Easily the best place in Bako 4/24/2010

We've been here repeatedly after hearing a recommendation from a friend. The food is really good, but what makes it amazing is the wine pairings by owner Jeramy. We don't even look at the wine list anymore - we just ask Jeramy to pick for us! On a special occasion, get in touch with them ahead of time and they'll do a custom menu for you - either by printing the regular menu with your occasion on it, or by creating a prix fix menu just for you. I've done both and it's been a blast! We celebrated our 10th anniversary there and they had flowers delivered as well and added to the bill - the ultimate for a forgetful husband :-) Pros: Great wine list, friendly owners, amazing wine pairings Cons: Small, easy to miss when you drive by more
