Yes, Victoria & Alberts is quite a restaurant, but it's not what most are use to dining at.
Dinner jackets (must be worn at all times while in the reataurant), evening wear for the ladies, a true 7 or 8 course meal, and a live harp player all add to the formality.
When you sit at your table, you will all have a formal looking menu, embosed with your name at the top.
It's very formal, and extremely elegant.
There are 3-5 selections for each course. You order one item from each course, and the courses are brought out one by one.
We have done the wine pairings with this. You get a wine pairing with each course, and the chef chooses a wine for each selection within that course- including desert.
Cost? If you opt to include the wine pairings you are looking at $215/plate after factoring tax and tip. More if you want alcohol other than the wine pairings or menu extras.
