We absolutely enjoy dining at The Tasting Room !! Chef's passion for food is second to none and we enjoy the interaction you get with him in an intimate atmosphere. All the tables in the small dining room have a view of the kitchen (basement garage of his house) the ambiance has improved over the years we have been going (it takes time we understand) but the real attraction is the FOOD !!! Usually the menu consists of 3-4 appetizers 3-4 entree and 3-4 dessert choices . The menu changes often so call or check Facebook for current menu . They also have a full liquor license now ! So let's get to last nights dinner: crab cakes , Peking duck , and pot de creme for my wife and I had : lobster bisque , diver scallops and strawberries with zabaglione !! Absolutely AWESOME !!!

The place is small, along with the menu, but has everything you need. Short and simple. The service was amazing. You can see the kitchen from your table and talk to the cook as he's cooking your food. With the short staff and small room, I would recommend a reservation first to help them out, but they were very welcoming and got us in. We will be back!

Visited due to the high Trip Advisor rating. Interesting little place in the downstairs of the "chef's" house. Waitress was incredibly impressed with the dinner we were about to have. However after bragging about her drink making skill she screwed mine up (and then attempted to make it right.....but was forced to admit the bar was out of sweet vermouth). Huh???.....in a "five star" restaurant? Meal was very good but I wasn't thrilled when the chef invited his big dog into the place to wander between the tables. Very expensive.

LOVED our experience here!! Intimate, casual space...only a handful of tables. You are a guest in the chef's home and have the privilege of watching him prepare your meal! We were there on a quiet evening and had the opportunity to chat with Chef Gendron about the amazing layers of flavors and perfect preparation and presentation of his cuisine. Can't wait to return!!

This was our second visit to The Tasting Room at Gendron Catering. Both have been marvelous. Do not be put off by the modest digs and out of the way location. The cuisine is terrific.
This visit we started with Cesar salad and a octopus and fennel appetizer dish. A great lead in. My partner dined on snapper en papillae I contrasted with lamb shank. Both had the same veggies. Both dishes were exquisite. We shared a Baked Nebraska for desert, a flambe vanilla ice cream covered with chocolate.

We will definitely be back!
