My husband and I went there to celebrate our anniversary. It was our first experience dining at a "Fine dining" restaurant and it was definitely one we will never forget. Let's start with the friendly and knowledgable staff member Valerie. She has a pleasant demeanor, warm smile and aims to make your experience there one to remember. She was very attentive and service was outstanding. The atmosphere was romantic and would have been even better at night time with the flickering lanterns at each table. The food was the best we've had in this area and actually, the best I can ever remember having anywhere. If you have Facebook, you must check out their page there, however, I am glad I didn't do that before going to the restaurant because I got the full experience without pre-judging it through the pictures...which look fabulous but didn't do the food justice. My husband is a very plain eater...he doesn't like sauces or gravies on his food. Well, he got the NY steak and it was perfect...he even loved the sauce that came with it...he probably would have licked the plate if we weren't at such a nice place and people weren't around us..haha. But he enjoyed every bit of his meal from beginning to end. That made this experience even more special. My husband doesn't throw out compliments easily, especially in regards to food, however, he could not stop raving about it all the way home. I could barely get a word in about how much I enjoyed my meal...which by the way, was the herb crusted lamb chops! They melted in my mouth! They were so tender. The fresh vegetables weren't soggy but firm and delicious. The gratin potatoes were thinly sliced into a pie wedge shape and topped the meal off wonderfully. And the dessert was delicate and delicious! It was the perfect indulgence to end the meal with and did not make you feel weighed down. I got the Opera Torte and my husband got the Cookies and Ice Cream, which we were supposed to share with one another. That didn't completely happen that way... I got a taste of the fruit, which soaked up the sauce that accompanied it and it melted in my mouth! Of course he tried my Torte and loved that as well. But he devoured his dessert so I never got to fully try each of the layers...but next time I will be quicker with my spoon. Lol. Anyway, you definitely have to try it if you want a delicious gourmet meal. When you see the portion sizes, you may think you will leave there starving, but truthfully, I prefer those portions because for the first time, I didn't leave a restaurant feeling full to the gills and bloated. I even left some food on my entree just to make sure I would be able to finish my dessert. This was a nice change from what we normally eat and I would prefer to make this my norm and the other restaurants a thing of the past. Your food was fresh and came out nice and hot. Everything from beginning to end was exceptional. I hope that doesn't change as their success grows because even though you didn't feel like you had to rush...that they brought your entree while you were still eating your starter, this place let you relax and savor each portion of your meal and cleared your dishes before bringing out the next course. They were very professional, but you felt very welcomed. I look forward to more of Chef Fred's creations in the future.
