Respond to Review of Pure Food and Wine
Review: First off, like someone else said, if cost is an issue, just don't go here. Know upfront that for one person to relax and enjoy the food, you will likely drop a bill here. The food was great, some of it unbelievable. However, I hate cilantro and both dishes I got were heavily accented with it. It really overpowered what were otherwise terrific dishes (they didn't mention it in the descriptions). Also, if you go, make a reservation!! We called for the hours and they didn't ask us for one. When we got there, 3 people at the desk asked us if we had one. We heard them say to others (not us) that if they wanted a table they needed to be gone by x o'clock. They actually let us stay for quite a while and we didn't feel rushed at all. The wine guy did stick his nose/face in a glass of wine, not only ours but everyone's. That is a peeve. But overall, despite the cost and touch of snobbery, it was excellent and would recommend it to those who can afford to go.
