Hidden away in an office complex, Panache’s chef obviously considers each dish to be as much about presentation as about taste. Each course came out looking and tasting very good. Wait staff was courteous and attentive. The dining room got crowded at dinner time. Elena's entree was the Chilean Sea Bass and Bill had the Lobster Ravioli. Both were good. You can see the appetizing presentation in the photo of us at the table. Our chosen appetizers were the house Panache salad and calamari, which were also very attractive and tasty. We had no room for dessert, although the dessert menu looked pretty good. They have a good cocktail and wine selection. In Elena's opinion, this place is rather pricey with a "cool" personality, but it was great to try once. Bill really liked the modern décor with high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. Bill particularly likes that Panache has an open style kitchen. Overall, the experience was very pleasant.
