I'm being picky here. My rating is somewhere between 4 & 5, but definitely closer to 4 than 5. Anyways. The easy stuff first.
The service was first rate, well-timed and not overly attentive ("new" Andrew, one of four Andrews currently working there was our waitperson and was perfect). The wine list looked great and my Fallan Angel cocktail (rye, bitters, etc., etc.) was on the money. Since my wife doesn't drink, I was limited to a glass of their pinot noir, which was well priced and very good, if not fantastic.
As often happens to me, I couldn't get by the great sounding starters, so I had three of them for my dinner: Foie Gras and Scallops, Mini Wellingtons, Pork Belly Rillette Croistini. My wife had the potato and leek soup (Chef's choice) and the white corn pasta.
Foie Gras and Scallops, what a ridiculously great way to start a meal. Expensive at $20, but actually worth it for a couple of perfectly cooked scallops and a nice nice piece of foi gras, slightly crisped on an unnecessary small bit of toast, both served on a plate with a smear of a rich savory sauce. The mini Wellingtons were pefect with the meat still medium rare and tender, also with a bit of savory sauce. The pork belly was the only thing that was less than I had hoped for with very stingy bits of extra crispy pork belly on croistini with a non-descript paste spread over it.
My wife had nothing but good things to say about her soup and pasta and said she'd be glad to have both another time.
My dessert was a decontructed lemon merringue pie and my wife had a special lemon basel dessert (neither of us can recall if it was a tart or a custard or something in between). The lemon merringue was very good and clearly the lemon basel dish was forgettable.
So, the bottom line is that we will almost certainly go back for more another time and try some of the other dishes on the menu (although the fois gras and scallops will definitely be repeated). Before I go next, I will troll through the other reviews to see what others people like from the menu and use that as a guide.
