Went here with a girlfriend on Saturday. First off, visiting a restaurant right after the busy holidays is always a good test of how well a restaurant performs after all the staff are tired from working Christams parties. Not here though. The service from the greeting at the door to the goodbye from GM was friendly, warm and sincere. When they say "thank-you for coming, hope to see you again soon", they really mean it. Our server also made a point of coming to the door to help us with our coats.
We had a glass of sparkling wine to start as recommended by our server. For starters she recommended the quail and the beet salad. Being adventurous, we took her up on it, and both were wonderful. The mozza from buffalo milk was delicate and smooth while the quail was crisp on the outside and juicy tender inside. The grapes and walnuts were a nice touch. For our meals we had lobster pasta and the chicken. Half way through my friend and I swapped plates so we could try eachothers. Instead of commenting, our server gave a little friendly amused smile, topped up our water and let us continue uninterupted. PERFECT!
For dessert she recommended the petite fours. Just enough to satisfy, but not committing to a full dessert. We got a selection of small treats. Apple fritter (which was to die for), chocolate fudge with homemade icecream, coconut cookies, maple tart and a little tea cake with pear. All so good.
We didn't have any wine with dinner, so our bill was reasonable for the wonderful food. Definately look forward to going back very soon. (Next time with wine!)
