When it turns out that the booking is on the last night before the restaurant closes forever, their booking becomes even more important. The thing is, Marc and Rachel are no longer together. They have been separated for a year and have not seen each other during that time.

    Pretty and pleasing, but no more. A bon-bon, not a meal.

    Instead of focusing on gastronomic nirvana, this listless culinary drama feels and looks more like a glossy European travel commercial.

    Miserly on food porn but not on prefab characters, it's well short of a cinematic feast.

    Doesn’t even remotely qualify as flavorful. Among other demerits, this is the rare foodie movie that doesn’t seem to care much about food.

    Bringing together some of the least compelling dinner guests in recent memory at a world-class restaurant that’s about to permanently close its doors, this blandly seriocomic misfire from Spanish co-writer/director Roger Gual is too lazy to rise to the level of farce, too banal and insincere to work as drama.

    Roger Gual’s half-baked film hopes to split the difference between romantic comedy and foodie delight but fails at both.

    There's a sinister, even insidious quality to a film that insists upon using incessant food montages not as a source of passion, but fodder for class-based self-congratulation.
