Wine pairings at Komi
My wife and I had an unbelievable dinner at Komi last night. One of the top meals of my life. Every bite was perfection. My one gripe is with the wine pairing. When I asked my server to describe the pairings she said that it was 5 glasses of wine. I was excited to try a variety of wines with the courses so I ordered the pairing. The first wine was a great sparkling greek wine and was definitely a full glass. However, after that I was barely poured 1.5 ounces at most of the other four wines and literally a splash of beer. While each wine was amazing it was definitely not worth the 70 dollar cost. I wish that the server told me that the 5 glasses were really half glasses at most. I didn't say anything because the night was so enjoyable and my wife wasn't drinking so I didn't want her to think I was just trying to get drunk. Has anyone had a similar experience or was it just me? I happened to notice that other tables were getting fuller pours so maybe it was just my server?

I'm sorry to say I think it was your server. I've done the pairing there a couple of times, most recently last weekend, and never felt under-served. In fact, last time (aka 8 days ago), our server topped us off several times. In the end, I think we were probably served, by volume, about 3-4 glasses of wine and a 1/2 bottle of beer apiece.
Anyway, I'm glad you enjoyed the dinner--it might be my favorite restaurant anywhere.
