Food and service was impeccable,piano player was excellent. Has strict dress code, however I felt fellow diners had not observed the code. Restaurant was slightly cold, but otherwise beautiful. I would suggest you maintain same dress code for all diners.

A good resturant that lives upon its heritage. I honestly expected more and better both when it comes to standard and a luxury experience. No one can debate the location and garden and history but the management need to shape up to preserve the value...More

yes there is a dress code - classic casual is fine, for the men, button-up shirts and trousers with shoes. Ladies wear something dressy. No need for formal wear, but if you have it with you, now is your chance :)
