My husband and I had an early dinner reservation on Saturday for Restarant Week. We really enjoyed our dinner experience. The dining area was beautifully decorated, and the long stem candle and roses that were at our table added a nice touch for romance.
Since we had an early reservation, we were promptly seated, and were waited upon by several waiters. The service was excellent! Our drinks were filled consistently and the plates were cleared quickly after we were done with each course.
For my appetizer, I ordered the Smoked Salmon, and absolutely loved it! The flavor of the dish was amazing. My husband ordered the Texas Corn Soup, and was disappointed. It was not what he had anticipated it would be. He thought it would have corn chunks and be more "Texas-style". He was appeased after I shared my salmon dish with him (which he liked).
For the main course, I asked Jose what he recommended. He suggested both the Filet of Beef Tenderloin and the Zucchini Wrapped Red Snapper. He did not fail us. My husband really enjoyed his filet, stating it was one of the best he had eaten. The red snapper had a delicate taste that was flavorful when mixed with the bean puree and tomato coulis - definitely a nice combination!
We both LOVED our desserts. My husband is a chocolate fan, so the Chocolate Dome suited him quite nicely. I like mango, so the Bavarian Cream/Mango Ginger Pound Cake was the perfect choice for me. With each dish, there were so many flavors that melted in our mouths. It was most excellent!
Summary: The food was flavorful and savory, and beautifully presented. Thank you, Jose, for your recommendations! Definitely a memorable experience! What a treasure it was to finally be able to dine here.
** The only damper that we had for atmosphere was from a fly that would come to visit our table occassionally. One of the waiters was horiffied when he finally noticed it. He requested assistance from another waiter to try to find/catch it. However, it flew away and disappeared from our area.
