      Hum... From what I read Le Select observes the following rules:
      Corkage Fee: $18 per bottle (You can't bring something from their wine list.)
      $25 to get special crystal glasses and decanter
      $30 for a magnum (1.5L) or larger
      If this is true, then I find it a bit rough.

          oh great! That looks like a good one.

          Ironically, given it appears I'm obsessed with Valentine menus, I prefer not to go out on Valentine's Day. But I hope you have a fun -- and romantic -- dinner.

His food is fabulous. Very creative, fresh tasting flavours with a little twist. Definitely worth checking out.

                            Whatever you do- don't go to Senses!! We had a terrible experience last year. We paid something like $110pp and the servers awful, and the portions were teeny. For that price, the waiters should be explaining the plate, not just plopping it down without a word. Also, our waiter poured tap water into our glasses filled with $10 sparkling water. Needless to say, the water wasn't carbonated anymore!
                            Also, they crammed so many tables into the restaurant that you could hear everything everyone 2 tables down was saying.
