A group of six of us went for dinner tonight. They sat us at a round table, which was conducive to visiting. We could look into the kitchen and see the food being prepared. I just wish the lighting was a little better.
We ordered the yam fries, the calamari and the chili chicken for appetizers. I particularly liked the curried ketchup that they served with the yam fries. The chili chicken was solid. The calamari was OK, but not spectacular.
I had the prime rib dinner. The mushrooms and meat were good, but the potatoes lacked seasoning and the beans were undercooked. My husband had the seafood hot pot. The clams, mussels and scallops were delicious, but the crab legs were way overcooked. They did make the effort to bring him out some new crab, but it still wasn't great. The prawns were also lacking.
For dessert we tried the key lime pie and the apple crumble. Both were a little on the sweet side and I was unimpressed to find that the key lime pie had a graham cracker crust. A shortcrust pastry would have tasted so much better.
However, despite the occasional problems with the food, we still had a great night. Our server was spectacular, constantly anticipating our needs before we even had to ask for anything. My daughter asked her about the sparklers she had seen going past our table, and our server offered to bring her a sundae with a sparkler in it for her dessert. If only the chefs had kept pace with the waitresses it would have been a spectacular night.
