This restaurant is located in the Hyatt on Capital Hill. They try to create ambiance but the restaurant is open to the hotel lobby and all lobby noise is present as your back drop. For example, this evening in the middle of my dinner a group of about 30 French adolescents and their chaperones bombarded the hotel lobby. It was like eating a fine meal in a bus station. That being said, the multigrain bread service with thyme, salted butter was quite nice. I started with the crab bisque. It has fire roasted corn in the bisque and it was quite tasty @ $7. The bistro steak was about the size of a small fist served with 4 or 5 small sliced roasted potatoes swimming in a homemade steak sauce @$17. The steak was well seasoned and cooked as instructed. I followed this up with the praline crunch and salted caramel dessert @ $10. It was divine. A decadent but light chocolate mousse on a brittle like crust in a pool of delightful homemade salted caramel. I am a Midwestern girl and these are definitely east coast prices, but I sincerely enjoyed my "splurge" meal. That being said I did watch a family come in, get water and bread service, debate the prices and leave before ordering. Soup, entrée, dessert, only drinking ice water and tip and I was in the $50 range for a single person. Wait staff was very attentive (they only had a hand full of tables around 7 pm on Sunday) and his suggestion for dessert was spot on!
