New restaurant in where the Codfather used to be. They have made an effort to spruce the place up with white tablecloths, navy cloth serviettes, fresh flowers and candles on every table. Service was pleasant and nicely paced, although our server looked rushed off her feet. We requested a quiet table and were seated in a back corner. It was great but shortly after we ordered they seated a rather loud group of four right beside us, when there was lots of room on the other side. Everything is a la carte. The salads were all good, and ample portions. The Caesar salad had a creamy dressing with anchovy, the classic wedge was tasty ( not overpowered with blue cheese) and garnished with bacon and grape tomatoes, the Quinoa salad was way too big for a starter but good, and the house salad was great.....the lemon thyme vinegrette was excellent, it had a nice zest. Warm chewy buns are fabulous!!!!
The chicken Marsala was very good, served with either white rice or mashed potatoes and vegetables of the day. One of our party tried to get a baked potato but they didn't have any. They were out of Andouille sausage so the Cajun fettuccine would have been seriously lacking flavour. The Parpardelle Al Fresco was tasty but was swimming in way too much broth....more like a soup. The special was pumpkin crusted wild salmon in a lime buerre blanc sauce and served with white rice and vegetables of the day, spinach and yellow squash. It was very good.
They only had one choice for dessert....a chocolate mousse.
Wine choice was fine. This restaurant is worth a try.
