My SO and I got to the restaurant a bit early and sat at the bar. I asked what kind of scotch was available and I was given a list, but I later found out that they had more bottles listed on the dessert menu that were not on the list I was given. The bartender also didn't seem too knowledgeable about types of scotch, but one can't be expected to know everything. I was a little disappointed to find that I wasn't made aware of their entire selection (I don't frequent many places with a wide selection of scotch, so I was excited at the opportunity to treat myself), but besides that, the service and atmosphere at the bar was great.
Once we were seated, we met our server, Ricardo, who was fantastic. He was very professional and friendly and he thought of everything he could possibly do to make our dinner most enjoyable.
Complimentary bread was served along with a tray of veggies. Both were a great start to the meal.
We shared an escargot appetizer which was delicious. There was also a bread puff on the top of each escargot which I thought was an interesting twist on a classic.
For the main course I had sea scallops and my girlfriend had king crab leg. Both were great (I tasted both), though a bit expensive for the portion size. The crab leg (yes, singular, but it was thick) was served without the shell, which was convenient. The presentation of both plates was top notch.
For dessert we had coffee crème brûlée. I've never had bad crème brûlée and this was no exception. I'd never had it with a coffee flavor before, but the flavors went together well.
Overall, it was a very enjoyable experience. The food wasn't quite mind-blowing, but it was very good, especially for a midwest seafood restaurant. Due to the price, it's not the kind of place I would go to often, and I would say that there are less expensive places with better food, but for a nice night out when you want great seafood and great atmosphere, it's worth checking out.
