We used to dine here often when we lived in the area. We made reservations for last evening because we were going to be in the area.
What a magnificent evening it turned out to be. The room is very nicely designed. The lighting was subdued but there was still enough light that you could read the menu. Candles were also on the table. It was a busy night but the tables are spaced such that you are not watching the other tables eating or unintentionally listening in on their conversation.
We started off with absolutely superb mussels in a spicy tomato fennel broth. We told the waitress that we were sharing the appetizer and she arranged for the order to be split in the kitchen so we each had our own dish. For entrees my husband had the rack of pork which he declared to be outstanding. I had a bite and it truly was delicious. I had the herb crusted rack of lamb and it was perfectly cooked to the medium rare that I had requested and it was amazing. Great care was also taken with the vegetable accompaniments. We shared a creme brulee for dessert.
It was really nice to see so many reasonably priced wines. My husband said there was a really good selection of wines for less than $30.00. After our server poured the first glasses of wine she said that she was going to get an ice bucket. She then placed the ice bucket on the other side of the room. Uh Oh, what if we want more wine. No problems, she kept the glasses topped up all night.
This is what I look for when I'm wanting a nice night out - a nice ambiance (no screaming children), very cozy room, superb food and outstanding service for a waitress who obviously cares. The prices are not unreasonable for the value given.
We will definitely return. They are also on Entertainment so this provides even better value.
