    I went to Truffles (not Studio Cafe) on Dec 25th Christmas dinner. It was such an awesome meal ~ food and ambiance was just excellent. You may also want to consider that. It definitely requires reservations.

      Studio Cafe is great now and has been for years. Pretty room, professional service, good selection in food and wine. Reservations a must.

        I went to Studio Cafe for the first time in the summer (for Summerlicious). This may or may not be reflective of their usual menu, but the meal I had was quite good. The best part was dessert - they had an awesome panna cotta with a lemon grass sauce that I loved.

          It's that time of the year again. We have historically gone to the Old Mill but are looking for something new - has anyone been to the Studio Cafe at the Four Seasons or the Intercontinental?
