We are so looking forward to the trip to meet up with our son and his girlfriend and this will be the perfect start!
Loved being able to see the pictures and read the review. Thanks!!
I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!! I would have been dazzled if my potential-future-in-laws took me to such a place!!

My parents had the "Gold Key" plan then and had TS for breakfast, lunch and dinner. At 33 now, the food looks amazingly delicious.

Of course, I had to "google" (actually "allearsnet" that) to find it out!!

I hope you can dine there soon - it is really special!!

I just found this thread and my mouth is watering!
but what in the heck is big eye tuna? that sounds so scary! I hope if I ever get to go, they have tuna on the menu and DO NOT call it big eye tuna -
I would have to opt for the crab canneloni if they did that - which would be a shame since tuna is pretty much my favorite thing in the world! Way to tease me with just the hint of red on the edge of the tuna! I want to flip that sucker apart and bask in all the yummy rareness!
goodness, food means way too much to me!

Will try to get to it this week - will also note the posting here, when available. DS21 and DS19 really enjoyed it (they weren't expecting much and were pleasantly surprised). I have pictures that should give you a pretty good idea. Here is sample picture, with DS21 making funny faces about his bulls-eye hits:

I am treating BF to this next month for his bday. I can't wait.
I ordered the wine pairing for both of us, but I am not a drinker...I may need to reconsider
We are flying home late the next evening...

I am really looking forward to another of your reviews, they are always spectacular! Did you and your son actually get one wine pairing and shared each glass or did you both get the pairing? I wonder wether actual sharing of the wine is possible...

Actually, we shared one wine pairing - specifically, they poured one portion into two glasses. I am a little reluctant to imply that they automatically do this - but it is a testament to their customer service that they are willing to do this. My suggestion is to let them know you are really interested in the wine pairing, but you cannot drink that much by yourself, and is there any possibility that you could share? Hopefully they won't be inundated with requests for this - but that people who really want to try the wine pairings are encouraged to work with the service staff to see what they come up with. I have done this at other restaurants, such as Rioja in Denver (if you ever get the chance....!!!). I usually start my discussion with the server with "I like small portions and a lot of variety - in my food AND wines. Can I consider half wine pairings with each course?" So far, most restaurants have been very accommodating.....

Thanks for the info on the wine pairing! I would always consider it a special service to be able to share and never expect it, I just was unsure wether it would be unacceptable to ask for it.

Food porn at it's best. It all looked so wonderful! One of my goals in life is to have the tasting menu at V&A and now I can't wait for that day. Thanks for your report.
