We returned to St. Martin after a couple of years away and found it to be as charming as ever. Ask for a booth - these are the best seats in the house. but even in the bistro area, the seating is designed to give you privacy (unlike standard bistro seating). The pianist is relatively unobtrusive and very talented, the wait staff seasoned and professional and the food fantastic. Add to that a variety of specials each night, good wine list and romantic setting and you've got the recipe for a great night out. Starter was the pate de maison, which was sized for 2 but priced for one and delicious. Then a beet, apple and mixed green salad with a very subtle vinagrette and sprinkling of blue cheese (delicious as well). Their bread, I should mention, is crisp and tastes like a fresh baguette in Paris! My peppercorn encrusted tenderloin and my wife's chateaubriand were both cooked to order (1 level above the 'chop house' standard, but we usually order one level less cooked anywhere we go to be safe - meaning my rare was really medium rare) and quite delicious. Finally we wrapped up with their souffle - the grand marnier was to die for. Give them a try and revel in actually being able to speak to your date quietly - no shouting over the din!
