Best dinner, from making the reservation to paying the bill, experience we have had so far. I don't know if I have enough good things to say about this place.
We called to make reservations and the person who took our reservation asked us if we had any coupons or deals. We did not but it got us to thinking!
We found an amazing travelzoo deal for both dinner and a stay at the Inn. We already had our accommodations so we bought the one for the dinner.
Our experience was amazing even with out the coupon, that was just the icing on the cake!
The restaurant itself is rustic and elegant. Not crowded and the noise level is just right for conversation or not.
We were brought fresh bread with butter.
We loved our starters. My boyfriend was still raving about his Quail egg on crispy pork belly this morning. I do know the sauce of lobster reduction was incredible. I had the scallop with caviar. Really really nice.
We did the red meat en tree's. I had the lamb. I am getting misty just thinking of it. The lamb was cooked to perfection and the mint chimi chimichurri was a perfect balance of mint and parsley. So fresh.
He had the beef tenderloin. Cooked to a perfect medium as he requested.
We ate every last bite of our dinners.
The service is impeccable. Every person who came to our table was five star. Each dish, as presented, was described for us.
The wine menu looked great but I love beer, I had the Puddle Jumper pale ale. Also amazing.
For dessert we ordered the Profiteroles of Peanut Butter and the Three-Layer Chocolate Mocha Mousse. Both were poetry in taste and textures.
You can tell that every part of your experience, the minute that you walk through the door, is the most important thing to the staff. Even if you have a travelzoo coupon!
We will be back.
