My wife and I have visited Q's bar for happy hour, but not the restaurant until recently. Happy hour is great, with reduced prices on select restaurant menu items and VG prices on wines.
We went to the restaurant for First Bite (annual event with fixed price menu, with menu options) with some friends. Fantastic menu, though some were winners and some almost winners. Celeriac bisque sounded great, as we love celeriac. Unfortunately, it was like celeriac puree with too much parsnip and a hot(spicy) oil. Wish they had let the celeriac speak for itself. Blue crab cake was excellent, but they overwhelmed the delicate flavor of the crab with BIG chunks of spicy sausage...should have diced the sausage and cut it by 80%.
Entrees were VG, could have been excellent, but the two orders of red trout varied from great to overcooked. Gold potato gnocchi are great (and they are on the HH menu). I had a smoked pork chop with spaetzle that was outrageous.. would order it again. I typically find pork chops to be overcooked and dry. This was not and had a nice smoky flavor. And I am a sucker for fresh made spaetzle.
I am not a fan of dessert, but the flourless chocolate cake is a winner. I would go back just for this, Too often it is a dense candy bar, this is cakelike, light, yet rich. It is also gluten free. Best gluten free dessert I have ever had. And it is on the regular menu.
Service was so-so. Bus service was better than the waitress. She wasn't bad, just a bit inattentive and intrusive.
