We visited the Rustica for the first time to celebrate our anniversary. The ambiance was lovely, as the room is pretty and warm with big windows and a roaring fire. The background music was never intrusive and we enjoyed our table that was quiet and felt quite private from other diners.
The food was amazing. We had the Date Night menu ($99/couple for appetizers, entrees and desserts plus a bottle of wine) and ordered a nice bottle of wine off the extended wine list. For appetizers we had the Silvertip salad (lemon dill dressing with goat cheese and pecans) and the scallop, with a nice selection of delicious freshly baked bread (herb as well as caramelized onion). We both enjoyed our appies, as the salad was light, fresh and delicious and my boyfriend's scallop was perfectly cooked.
For entrees, I had the seafood special which was an herb-crusted salmon with the cheese potato au gratin as a side. It was cooked perfectly and had a delicious flavor. Perfect. My boyfriend thoroughly enjoyed his petit filet, which he also said was cooked to order, as well as the mushrooms.
We both had the famous creme brûlée for dessert, which was absolutely fantastic. It was strawberry and vanilla flavored and done beautifully.
Overall, we had an amazing night at Rustica and would absolutely come back again, especially for a special occasion. I would like to return in the summer when it would be light enough outside to enjoy the beautiful views.
