english-french translation?

I want to email a restaurant in France in French to check the prices for a set menu on New Year's Eve. This is because I want to test whether there is a nationality bias. This will allow me to negotiate with them more effectively (if my cynicism is justified). Anyway, could someone with native level linguistic skills translate the following (including corrections on colloquialisms):

"Dear Sir/Madam,

Please can you tell me how much the New Year Eve's menu will cost?

Thanks"

    First of all. I know google translate has improved recently. but don't just type your thing into translate and expect french native speakers not to laugh at you.

    This is my own translation, NOT from a translator.

    Monsieur ou Madame,

    Je vous écris pour demander le prix de le menu de Saint-Sylvestre.

    veuillez agréer monsieur ou madame l'expression de mes sentiments les meilleures.

    YOUR NAME

    Note: the french are very formal in their letter writing. the last bit- "veuillez..." is just like a longer version of best wishes. don't be alarmed if you type it back into translator and it seems weird. good luck!
