It might be a little hard to get to right now (because of all the construction going on in the Park), but it's worth it.
We made reservations on a weeknight and were told that for our party of 6 we could choose either 6:15 or 8:30. We chose 6:15, but were surprised because the restaurant was empty for most of the night. We were seated in the atrium and were treated to a beautiful sunset. As the sun set, the tealights glowed creating a beautiful atmosphere. Very romantic.
Our server was exceptional. The water was refilled promptly and the bread was replenished numerous times. She was so nice and tried really hard to make my parents' anniversary special. She even had their dessert decorated to commemorate it.
We ordered some appetizers (the squid and the crab toast). The squid was deep fried with a dark sauce, I think it was a lime sauce. The toast came with a lobster bisque to dip the toast in. They were delicious, but on the small side.
The reason I think their value is exceptional is because of their set meal. For $20, you get a choice of salad or soup, steak frites or fish and a slice of lemon tart. Most of our party (4 out of six) ordered the set meal. I ordered the salad; it was properly dressed with a light dressing. I also enjoyed the beets and cheese. I tried the soup; it was carrot, but it didn't taste like carrot. It tasted better.
I ordered the steak rare, but it came medium rare to medium. I think they might have given me the wrong steak because my boyfriend ordered his medium rare and
was given a steak that was red. I got to try the cassoulet and it was quite tasty. The pork was very tender. I didn't really like the duck or the spicy sausage that came with it.
For dessert, most of us had the lemon tart, but my parents got a creme brulee. I love creme brulee, I love their creme brulee. It was so creamy and had a nice hard sugar top. Perfect mix of creme and sugar. I liked the filling of the lemon tart, but not the crust. It would have been nicer to have a cookie crust instead of the regular pie crust it came on. The filling was just tart enough.
For the six of us, the bill came to $200 including tip. I am so coming back. It's a wonderful, hidden gem with exceptional view.
