If you've never been to Lento, you owe it to yourself to go and experience what locally sourced food, creative combinations, and a relaxed vibe can create. We went on Oct. 29, 2011 and had a wonderfull dinner experience. Our reservation was honored on time using Open Table for 8 on a busy night. We got off to a bit of a slow start since it took our server probably 10 minutes or so to come to our table to check in with us...but from then on she was outstanding. One other small nit...the martini I had (my wife had a glass of wine) before dinner was a bit on the small side. Big glass...maybe 2/3 full. I like 'em a bit bigger. We shared an appetizer of duck pate on baguette bread. The pate was perfectly spiced and dare I say, lite (I know it's a contradiction in terms)???, for a duck pate. There was more than enough for two to spread liberally on the baguette bread. For dinner I stayed with the duck theme with duck sausage. My wife went with lamb and pasta. Both were scrumptious and perfectly proportioned for dinner. Not a morsel was left, but we didn't feel cheated either. Skipped desert, we're headed to the Jamaica soon and want to look good on the nude beach :) We also had a nice bottle of Jelu Malbec (reasonably priced and flavorful) with dinner. Lento is in the Village Gate complex, with a large free off street parking lot directly across Goodman Street from the front of the complex and where Lento is located. The restaurant is spacious and the tables are not jammed and the noise level was perfect for easy conversation between us. We'll definitely return.
