  1. I went there a couple years ago. It was the first important sit-down meal between my fiance and my parents, so my memories are a bit unfocused. But I remember the room being very serene, very quiet, very roomy, with beautiful views over the park. For a museum restaurant, I think the food was pretty good. Definitely worth going at least once -- maybe for lunch or brunch, so you can take advantage of those views (although they won't be optimal now that the leaves are gone).
