Lived up to its reputation!
My 16 year old daughter opted for a trip to California (from NY) instead of a party. Spago was on her "Bucket List." After looking at the menu on line, I thought she would be disappointed. I was WRONG! I took her and two of her friends to dinner. They had NO problem choosing appetizers and dinner! One of her friends is in cooking school and was mesmerized by the view into the kitchen! The staff could not have been friendlier! The highlight of the evening was, of course, when Wolfgang Puck came over to the table and introduced himself and chatted with the girls. He graciously took a photo with them as well.

As for the food...I had the artichoke soup and it was beyond delicious! I can honestly say...I have never tasted anything quite like it! It is a MUST have! The girls all had the risotto - my favorite - and it was outstanding! You could definitely taste the wood fired brick oven! For an entree, we had the duck - very, very good!! - the salmon - excellent! But...by far, the best was the chicken with black truffles!
We shared the cookies for dessert and they were beyond incredible! I was worried that the restaurant wouldn't live up to our expectations but it exceeded them! DEFINITELY worth the trip! And...btw...it was the best $$$ we spent for a meal in California! Worth every penny!
