A group of six went for dinner. First I'll note that we had a wonderful time, due to the company of friends. The atmosphere at this restaurant is wonderful, and the fireplace burns with real wood.
Those are the high points. We arrived and barely sat down...I mean 60 seconds...when the waitress arrived without introducing herself, and asked for our drink order. First of all, there was only one drink menu for the entire table and we hadn't even gotten to open it. About a minute later, the waitress returned a second time to ask for our drink order. It was ridiculous! There is a long list of specialty drinks at $12.50 each, and we had to pass the one menu to each person. It took a while, and I thought it was ridiculous not to be provided at least 2-3 menus. The specialty drinks were good, but not memorable. The appetizers were good, small, but not spectacular. Everything is ala carte, so when I ordered the tuna, that is exactly what I got....not a single additional item on the plate. i ordered it rare and my wife happened to order the same item, medium rare. Both came out having been cooked identically. Once again, the tuna was good, but I have had much better at other restaurants on Cape Cod. The table shared one bottle of wine during the meal plus one individual glass. Then we had 5 desserts which were again, good, but not spectacular. I guess the bottom line is...I expected more from this restaurant....I.E. better food, and more cordial service. The bill including tax and tip was $175 per couple.
For the money, I could recommend several other restaurants on the Cape that are better and somewhat less expensive. My wife and I both agreed that we are unlikely to return.....there are preferable choices.

We are sorry you were disappointed with your evening. We would appreciate you providing the date you dined at The Red Pheasant as we would like to find out who your server was. The cocktail page is in our wine list which is a bit cumbersome, I will consider printing a separate drink page. Our servers know the drinks and can advise if you have any questions. Our most recent Tuna presentation was accompanied by baby Bok Choy and Soba Noodles. If your Tuna was not cooked properly we would have replaced it. We pay close attention to all the comments our guest mention when they are here as well as our on-line reviews and our goal is for you to have a very special evening.
