Dinner at Wheatleigh started off a bit rough, but ended up being quite nice. We had cocktails and canapes in the lobby first, which was the low point of the evening. Our server had a tough time remember what I ordered for a cocktail, and a tougher time getting it to us. It was a rocky start that set an off-tone for the evening, luckily the service in the dining room itself was much better. The food was all beautifully presented, and very well executed. The portions were small enough to allow us to enjoy quite a few courses without being overstuffed - without making us wonder where the money went. The sommelier was great, as she paired a few glasses with our meal quite appropriately. The service was nothing short of outstanding, very on point and cordial. One great highlight of the evening was the cheese course - make sure you go for it. There is a trolley of sorts presented, with at least a dozen cheeses to assemble your selection. The gentlemen presenting them knew the intricacies of each and was a great help. You can't help but enjoy this with a glass of port to cap off the evening. The atmosphere was very posh and romantic, a nice minimalistic setting in a historic home. As far as value, I'd say you'd be hard pressed to find this level of food and service at such a price. With gratuity included, dinner for two (less alcohol) was under $200, a price hard find for comparable experiences. I'll be back to try the tasting menu next.
