The food and service at this restaurant was quite good, but I gave it lower stars because it just seemed a bit overpriced, so I felt I was paying extra for the ambience and decor - which admittedly is quite nice - super high ceilings, dark, warm ambience, tasteful understated furniture in dark woods and bronzy colors (but I should note they played a very strange mix of hip hop that didn't suit the older crowd that was dining there - a bit weird really...) I think this place is better for business meals, first dates and the like if you are trying to impress someone; however, since I am more about the food, I'd rather pay these prices at bastide or spago's or something like that where the food is simply better. That being said our meal was quite good - particularly our foie gras starter - flavorful, perfectly seared and accompanied by a crispy piece of toast and lovely berries and sauces that didn't overpower the foie gras or turn the toast into mush. I thought the addition of proscuitto to this was a bit much, but my friend really liked it. My friend's burrata was quite good (but it's better executed at osteria mozza). My pasta carbonara with shrimp - again tasty but a bit over-greasy and wasn't special enough to warrant a $36 price tag.

For visitors - this may be a place you want to have a cocktail in since it's located in the hotel where Pretty Woman was filmed and is quite a lovely place. But for dining, you may want to try something else.
