Ever wondered what it is like to eat in the dark? Eminent psychologists have been advocating dining in the dark as the ultimate taste experience for many years. Studies show that 80 percent of people eat with their eyes; with that sense eliminated, the theory is that the other senses—namely taste and smell—take over to elevate your meal to a whole new level. After donning your blindfold in the darkened, candlelit room, you'll soon realize that focusing on taste and smell alone can be a truly enlightening experience—provided you're not afraid of the dark!

  • Food and experience was excellent
  • Awesome experience! Definitely coming back again...
  • Overall a very enjoyable experience. Chef was very approachable. 2 different members of the wait staff didn't seem to understand how to explain the cocktail and wine pairing ($45/per couple). Too many obnoxiously loud patrons laughing and making noise. Nearly had to shout to be heard. Would suggest requesting that guests respect each other's experience and realize that others may better enjoy the $90/plate meal with the room at a low hum.
  • Everything was amazing!! The staff and the while room sanf happy birthday to my husband when he walked in! He was so excited and hasn't stopped talking about it since we left.
  • Such a cool experience, I've never done anything like this before! Great date night activity!! Husband and I both enjoyed it and food was delicious! Service was great too, the wait staff and hosts were wonderful.
  • Food was not that great, however it was a fun experience
  • More vegetables in the fish and meat menus
  • Great experience, wish it would have been a little darker and more intimate
  • Amazing experience! I would recommend the host at the beginning to tell the guests to leave their phones out so the servers and take random pictures of them during their experience. As a guest it would be nice to have these surprise pictures to have as a memory.
