“Another Fantastic Meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is by far one of the best restaurants in Kingston. This was our second visit this year, and we were not disappointed. I am normally not a fan of hotel restaurants, but this is an exception.

The menu, ambiance, staff are all top notch. It is a smaller venue, so be sure and make reservations!

“modern - good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Seems to be "the place" in Kingston right now as 2 different groups offered to take us there. food was quite good with a "farm to table" focus. It's in a hotel and decor is a bit unimaginative but for a smaller city, this is a pretty good option.

“Very fine dining!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Dinner last night was just perfect!
We opted for the new Table d'hôte, a four course exquisite dinner at $45., an excellent value. As usual, we were served delicious bread with butter of the day and some amuse-bouches to titillate our taste buds before the arrival of the meal. In itself the amuse-bouche is a little work of art. Our meal started with elk carpaccio with greens and a plum sauce, followed by escargots in a feuilleté with a parmesan cracker/chip. The main course was pheasant, stuffed with leeks and some other scrumptious ingredient, sitting on mashed roots and beets, and a choice of dessert (I chose the Frangelico semi-freddo). Every dish was just a beauty to look at, perfect in size and absolutely delicious, combining interesting visually appealing elements that complement each other well, taste wise. We had a Primitivo di Manduria to accompany this fine meal and enjoyed every drop.

Service was excellent, the young lady was polite, gracious, attentive and professional. You can tell that a place is well run when things go smoothly at your table. We learned that the Table d'hôte changes every week and the Prix fixe menu every season.

My compliments and congratulations to the Chef,
CHAPEAU!
