so this is my first dine out and my first raincity grill experience
With high expectations I arrived at the restaurant, already knowing what I wanted. I got to try a few of the dishes since I came with another person.
The bread was defrosted safeway bread I could not believe it! walking to the bathroom I saw fresh buns which looked like they were baked on premises, which I think the were not giving the the prix fixe customers. I was worried. It was terrible. But its just bread..
Trio of tartare: very nicely seasoned. The lighting did not make it possible to see which was which and they tasted the same, but they were delicious. More of an amuse bouche really but still wonderful.
Duck tortelini in duck broth: exquisite.
Lamb: it arrived looking like a lamburger. The attentive waiter explained that it had been taken off the bone, seasoned, reassembled, and then braised. It was delicious!!!
The sides were not very good though, I must say. The potato dish (scalloped and then made into square) had been cooked so much in advance it tasted bad. Then there were carrots, which were carrots. Still I loved the lamb
Salmon: served with leeks and parsnips, the salmon was a bit cold (had been cooked a few minutes too early) but not too dry. The person enjoyed it so thats all that matters, but personally I would have been disappointed with it. Leeks were boring but the parsnips were very nicely prepared.
Desert: pot a creme with wince gelee. Very nice.
In all I gave it three stars because it was clear that everything had been prepared early and therefore was a bit cold. Still , WONDERFUL service, setting, and the lamb and starters and desert were lovely.
