Restaurants receive these awards based on a combination of different factors.  The restaurants are ranked on items like food, service, decor and ambiance.  Victoria & Albert’s brings Victorian elegance to a fine dining experience.  There are three different dining experiences which include the main dining room with a 7-course menu or a 10-course Chef’s Tasting menu, the Queen Victoria’s Room with a 10-course Chef’s Tasting menu with tableside presentation or the 8 seat Chef’s Table in the restaurants kitchen, which is the most prestigious dining experience of them all.  The restaurant also boasts a wine cellar with over 700 different wines.
