We were expecting excellent based on the reviews, the atmosphere, and the price. Service startet out a little spotty even though we were one of the first tables seated and the reastaurant was not yet crowded. When my husband didn't know what kind of cocktail to order right away, it took the server a long time to return to the table. Another thing that bothered us was a table beside us was given an amuse bouche, but we were not offered one as well as another table near us. We have never, ever been in a restaurant before where only some table are presented with an amuse bouche and not all the tables.
We started with the Vichyssoise and the Duck Foie Gras. The Vichyssoise was a bit bland for what we were expecting, and the Foie Gras could have been very good, but the chef was heavy with the cracked pepper wich I have never had on foie gras before. The flavor could have been spectacular, but the pepper took over.
My husband had the haddock which was not as good as he was expecting. I had the rack of lamb wich was very flavorful and cooked just as requested.
There were some very good moments, and some disappointments. Service was very good at times and slow at others. It was a very good experience, but could not say it was excellent.
