My dad took me here for my 23rd birthday, as I was living in Germany and the rest of the family couldn't make the trip from the U.S. So to do something super special, he took me Louis C. Jacob, which is basically the German version of the Modern in NYC (that's my way of saying it is extremely expensive).
Although the bill was hefty (esp. since it was in euros), every course is truly better than the last.
By the time the dessert cart rolled by the eloquent dessert descriptions, which usually sound like music to my ears, were just making me sick and I couldn't think of eating another bite... Ok I did struggle through a delicious dark chocolate and raspberry dessert with gold on it- A girl can't say no to gold or dark chocolate.
The interior is beautiful, but the atmosphere is a bit stuffy and I felt a bit uncomfortable having multiple waiters watching my every move. I won't penalize for that, because they're just trying to provide exceptional service. Better have your pinky raised at all times and don't forget to bring a camera, because these dishes really are a work of art =)
