sadly, i couldn't get reservations and upon trying to find somewhere else to go that evening for dinner we decided to go and try our luck regardless -- luckily, there was a small table that was open just off the lounge, unfortunatly though, it was right across from the kitchen
first thing to know is this place is loud. you really do need to yell to hear anyone as the music is up and so are the voices, and during our experience being across from the kitchen didn't help much either.
to start we ordered some muscles -- they were pretty damn good. i dug them and the belgian fries were great as well.
as for our meals my two friends ordered the venison and they were very impressed. i ordered the lamb shank which was delicious and a much larger serving, however, the size was happened to be its draw back. it was just so rich, which i should have known it would be from the menu. it had honey and cinnamon and was garnished throughout with figs, but regardless, still very good.
for desert i had the chocolate cigars, which were great, but not that inventive. if i was to go back i'd pick something a little more nifty.
i love the look of the place, it really is a lovely looking restraunt and i would definitly go back. my meal cost about 75 dollars and that was for 1/2 muscles (split with friend) the lamb shank, a beer, and a cocktail, as well as desert. not bad for fine dining
