We have been here before and had a wonderful experience of great food and great service. The absinthe bar is amazing. For New Year's, however, they were not at their finest. Limited to the chef's tasting menu, we had planned to have absinthe drinks after dinner and go out onto the strip to celebrate. After 2 and a half hours we were still there waiting on the kitchen. I have done tasting menus before and they can be a wonderful experience. Usually, they follow the order that is presented on the menu but our food, when it finally came, was not in any particular order. Our waitress tried her hardest, even offering a complimentary glass of wine because of all the waiting. We asked that the rest be packed to go as it was taking so long and we were not going to be able to stay and have an absinthe drink. At 4 am when dessert sounded really divine, I discovered the only thing in the box was our last thing we had tried off the menu. $350 later and no dessert really soured my love for this place.
