We hadn't been to the Raincity Grill for a few years, so we decided to take advantage of a recent Groupon offer to reacquaint ourselves. We went on a Tuesday evening, and were happy to see that restaurant was moderately busy- a good sign mid-week. Our coupon was for an eight course tasting menu, and our server, Mark, was happy to modify the menu, replacing the red meat courses with something more suitable for us.
We were already familiar with the outstanding wine selection for which the restaurant is known, so we opted for the wine pairings. Each course was presented and described beautifully, and served along with a wine from BC or Washington that matched the flavours of the course with near perfection.
It takes a while to consume eight courses and the accompanying wine selection, especially when savouring every bite. Our dining experience took well over two hours, but was enjoyable from beginning to end. Mark is an exceptional server, and provided a thorough and highly entertaining description of each course and each wine served.
In summary, the food is exceptional, the wine equally good, and in warmer weather, a seat on the patio affords an amazing view and terrific people watching. Enjoy!
