Our party of four had dinner here on Friday night. My three friends tried the $38 menu, I tried their $48 menu. From the moment we were seated, our server Arnold was attentive and charming. He really knows the meaning of good service - everyone in his section was well looked after.
As I review the food, I'll just write down what everyone had
Mushroom Soup with Cod Croquette ($38 menu) - The croquette was tasty, the soup had a great truffle flavour but texture was a bit runny
Mixed Asian greens, Japanese root vegetables, scallion-soy dressing ($38 menu) - Looked great and tasted great - dressing was unique and veggies were fresh.
Pumpkin and Aromatic Lobster Bisque with Gingerbread Croutons ($49 menu) - Absolutely delicious! Texture was just right and it was very tasty. Gingerbread croutons were unique and added to the presentation with the colour contrast.
Second Course (Entree)
Mussels indochine, red curry, bamboo, cilantro ($38 menu) - Very tasty! Mussels were fresh and the curry was very tasty - not overwhelmingly spicy.
Grilled ribeye, tarragon-shallot butter, pomme frites ($38 menu) - Steaks were prepared perfectly to diner's request. The fries could have been a little more aesthetically pleasing. The dipping sauces could be a little more inventive.
Miso-yuzu mustard baked sable fish, creamy crab croquette ($49 menu) - The sablefish was excellent - not overcooked and melt in your mouth delicious. The crab croquette was also very tasty and the sauce drizzled over the dish went with the food perfectly. Great presentation too.
Chocolate devil’s food cake with sour cream gelato ($49 menu) - Absolutely to die for if you're a chocolate fan. I was so full by this point I couldn't finish the whole piece :( The gelato was very good as well.
Upside down pineapple cake with coconut sorbet ($38 menu) - Very tasty and also great presentation.
Chocolate espresso milkshake with peanut butter cookies ($38 menu) - My fiance loved this dessert. It was a great alternative to the post-dinner coffee.
The ambience was really great - restaurant was packed and so there was lots of chatter/buzz. Great music as well.
All in all I was very impressed with the food and service. Will definitely be going back!
