Excellent service in a restaurant is an art form. It involves details — not just noticing when a patron needs something, but anticipating the diner's actual needs. It involves pulling out chairs, folding napkins when they are left untidy, cleaning up crumbs from the table after each course, making sure water glasses are filled discreetly, and instinctively knowing when it's appropriate to interrupt conversations. Most of all, it involves a level of professionalism and training for which the motto is "always going a step higher than what's necessary." At La Table, all of this appears to happen effortlessly. Tea service is impeccable, from the beautiful porcelain teapot to the small timer that is provided to make sure your beverage is steeped for the correct amount of time. Beautiful guéridons arrive when table-side service is required, accompanied by skilled servers who will prepare your food in front of you. Stools are even provided for women's purses so they don't touch the floor, just another example of the detail and forethought that goes into the exemplary service at La Table.
