Splendid luxury shines beneath the crystal drops of many-shaded chandeliers. But once the level of cuisine and service seemed to reach beyond the startling altitude of the ceiling, now we’re just not as easily wooed. You may relish the French-rooted cuisine, served as three-, five- and seven-course tasting menus in a dining room that can be as barren as the connecting bar is busy, can be just slightly less than utterly wonderful at times, and servers confuse courses - or forget them entirely - when the pace is slow. However, quality still rules, from the bread basket to the amuse-bouches to the rolling Champagne and cheese carts, and in comparison to other regional and more youthful restaurants, this restaurant will always be a grand dame. Magnificent, seasonal ingredients - chanterelle and morel mushrooms, truffles, duck foie gras and game in the fall and winter, tender greens, baby asparagus, sautéed sweetbreads and pan-roasted seafood in spring and summer - will never fail to entice us. For dessert you may have the Tahitian vanilla crème brûlée, flawlessly smooth and creamy beneath its crispy shield of caramelized sugar, accented with lacy cookies and embellished with a spun-sugar ornament. The restaurant boasts of wine list with 700 selections up to a 1988 Romanée-Conti at $1,950, with other exquisite French and numerous California options.
