Well I have an ADR for victoria and alberts. I'm so excited about it. My fiance and I have never ever eaten somewhere like this before. I bought a brand new Austin Reed suit for the occassion and also a new beautiful dress for her. I'll make sure to post pics after we get back. The one thing i'm concerned about is the gourmet food. I've heard it's wonderful but according to the board you pick certain foods for your 6 course meal. I've heard some of the names of these dishes and sometimes i'm like "what in the world is that?" Will they help me out if I don't know what exactly it entails...What kind of experience do you guys have there? :thumbsup2

don't worry. the waiters and waitresses will be gentle. usually there is a description on the menu but they won't mind explaining anything. i'm sure you will have a great time.

You will love it. The food, service and atmosphere is superb. It is one of my favorite restaurants (and I live close to NYC). You will remember it forever.
As for the food, don't be intimidated. As the above poster says there is a description of each dish. There is also a wide selection, so it will please everyone. Also, I have found "Victoria" & "Albert" (your waiters) very friendly and can tell you a funny story or three. They may appear to be "stuffy" and "proper" but they are CM's playing a role. They will happily take the time to explain everything to you.
If you like wine with your meal, I highly recommend the tasting flights with your dinner.
Enjoy your very special evening.
