I almost hate to write this review, because I know it will probably help propel this restaurant into the realm where I won't be able to get a reservation there myself, but its quality will take it there anyway, so what the hey!
I had always admired the exterior of this restaurant, which is located at the back gate of Mahogany Run Golf Course, but had never actually been inside. We attended a cocktail event there on a recent visit to the island and loved the feel of the newly reopened place--gorgeous, typical Caribbean stone walls, vaulted, beamed ceilings and soft lighting, and also liked the look of their new menu, so decided to make a reservation a couple of weeks later to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The girl who answered the phone and took the reso was very professional and even asked for our first names once she heard we were celebrating a special occasion (which later turned out to be used to hand-letter individually-printed menus sealed with old-fashioned red wax--a nice touch!) When we showed up, we were immediately seated and our drink order taken and then the server explained that the diners at each table have the opportunity to go back into the kitchen and talk with the chef about any questions they might have regarding the menu and also make any changes to the entrees or sides they might desire. We were intrigued, and headed back in to the kitchen. The chef is vibrant young guy who makes you feel welcome and special and encourages any questions or dialogue you might want to have about food and wine. He offered us a taste of a couple of specialty items that weren't even on the menu and just made us feel as if we were the only ones he was cooking for! The meal was absolutely delicious from beginning to end, and the price very fair considering the quality and generous portions. We had the 3-cheese plate (where you get to choose which cheeses you want and a good portion of each cheese served on a large plate with fruit, and homemade flat bread), the caesar salad (if anything, the most underwhelming item we had--and it was still good), and then I had the veal ossobucco with crispy calamari and my husband had a half rack of lamb with sauteed scallops. We couldn't do dessert and we had enough to enjoy the experience all over again for lunch the next day! To top the evening off, the server brought a tray holding 2 petit fours that was artfully lettered "Happy Anniversary!" It definitely was, and we will definitely be back before the next one!
