Guy Savoy Tasting menus or a la carte?

Hi all,

Reading the chowhound boards, it seems unanimous that Joel Robuchon is a better experience when you have a 4 or 6 course prix fixe menu rather than the degustation, as you can pick the ultimate dishes and leave the occasional "misses" that are experienced with the degustation menu.
For those of you who have eaten at Guy Savoy (ideally more than once), have you preferred the tasting menus (Elegance, TGV, Prestige, etc.) or a la carte. It seems a bit more prohibitive to go a la carte at Savoy than Robuchon, so advice is appreciated. If you have tasted the white truffle menu, was it worth it? And if you have experienced the bites and bubbles, how was it?
I am going to Vegas in late May, and will do Robuchon for sure, but am still up in the air on Savoy. I'm hoping some comments on the tasting menus, bubbles bar and a la carte menu can help me decide.
