mpressed.... Seriously impressed. From the moment we were greeted at the entrance I knew (really, i did) that this place was going to be a winner.
We were escorted to our table by an gentle with a warm smiles and a wonderful "good evening." I was surprised though that there was only one other family there. Later Mo explained to me that this restaurant (located inside a hotel) was primarily a weekday place and the evening only starts at the bar before and after the parties at the hotel. None the less...lets get down to the food and beverages.
We did the price fixe dinner that included four courses AND wine & Coffee... At $40.00 a head you could not do any better anywhere!
After Gloria came over and explained the price fixe option we immediately dove in and ordered (we actually had a head start since we checked all this out on open table.) There is a corresponding picture to each item i mention here. I am going to make this simple:
- Shrimp Cocktail - Three large shrimp well cooked as to texture and 'snap' with a good amount of tasty cocktail sauce
- Ahi Tuna Taco - Two large tortilla chips (providing a good crunch to sit underneath the perfectly seared tuna, and avocado
- Onion soup - very fast (without a lot of beef broth taste). Lots of well cooked onions and some seriously good cheese on top of a very crunchy that point.
- boeuf bourguignon - This was a delightful twist on the classic french recipe... The pieces of meet were more bit sized and I did not get a over abundance of wine in the cause, BUT... This was delicious. It was served with a scoop of a creamy mashed-potatoes on top which was perfect. Both my wife and I finished the plate and both felt that we ate something really good.
It was nice that since it's a four course meal they don't give you an excessive amount of food. Each portion was perfect and totally satisfying
Dessert - Crapes with Ice Cream - This was the perfect way to end this meal... Soft crepes with a rich chocolate ice-cream.
So.... I give this restaurant a five star based on the following items
Very attentive service
Plenty of excellent food
Attention to service
There is no where I know that you can get a meal like this in a location like this and walk away for the price they charge.
I am definitely looking forward to my next visit (will be this month) to try some other items on the menu.
