This is a great restaurant with a view to die for - over Deep Cove. It is located amongst some lovely landscaping with beautiful flowers and trees and a small vineyard as you drive in. There is no valet parking. I found necessary to take a constitutional walk in the gardens afterwards to help the digestion.
We had salmon and Coq au Vin and they were both excellent, as they should be. There were 4 choices of fixed price menus but I simply cannot eat that much these days so we decided to choose a la carte. The portions are not large, but we all eat way too much and everything was cooked to perfection - in rich French style. It's a very extensive menu with most main dishes ranging upwards from $30. The menu is on the website so you can see what everything costs so you don't faint in front of your date. There is also an extensive wine list of domestic and imported wines although the waiter did not not really express any strong feelings about the wine I was thinking about. It was, quite frankly, one of the cheaper bottles at $40, so maybe it did not warrant any special effort. There were also half bottles available for $25 and up.
The service was excellent, reasonably casual and unobtrusive. The waiter was there when needed otherwise stayed out of the way. If you want a window table you need to reserve it ahead and you can dine outside, although it was a bit cool on the evening we were there. I thought it might be a bit stuffier than it actually was...there were even a couple of "gents" in shorts - I think resort casual is the best way to dress here. I did not see any enforcement of a minimum dress code which may be a bad thing...:)
The only observation where they might possibly improve is that they refuse to serve salad as a meal. Banish those on a diet - you have to eat more than you want. Frankly, it's not a problem for me, but then I burn it off, but there are many who are trying to watch their weight. There is also an $18 minimum charge per person at lunch to stop those pesky cheapskates from coming.
All in all, an excellent dining experience, although it is certainly more than I want to normally pay and is richer that I would want more than once in a while - but on a beautiful evening - it is almost impossible to beat. I'll go again...on a special occasion.
