This restaurant offers so much I am not sure where to start. Upon arrival we were seated in the indoor patio with a fabulous view of a ship on the Lake Superior waters. It was a warm summer evening and the moon was rising in the peach sky.Below us we were able to watch people go by on the lake walk. We started with drinks that we sort of savored. My friend got the citrus cosmo and I ordered the Peach Bellini. Both went down way easier then they should have. We ordered the Bruschetta and we were a bit disappointed. The bread was quite toasted and their was a small dish of the tomato topping. We asked for some extra balsamic vinegar and that made things better. There was some confusion when our bread arrived shortly after this appetizer. I had specifically asked our waitress if the pasta came with bread and a salad and she said no. If we had known there was bread included we would not have ordered the bruschetta. We really liked our dinner selections. My friend had the roast beef au jus paninii. Upon tasting her first bite she was in her glory. She said it had just the right flavor and balance with all the ingredients. I liked my angel hair pasta with sun dried tomatoes and roasted red peppers. It was so much that I had to take half of it to go. My friend however was able to order both the tiramisu and their signature cake which is baked daily on site.. She ordered them to go but then wondered why since she finished the tiramisu before we left the parking lot.. She said she would return just for the tiramisu if that was all there was. A fantastic way to spend a warm summer evening with a friend.
