Driving by this place last night & looked in & decided not to go there because it was virtually empty. So, we parked & walked around the corner, stopping anyway to glance at the menu when Mohamed came out the Tally Ho door & encouraged my husband & I to come in, "everything is delicious", he said, which I read off of other reviews before we went there anyway. So, we did. A few tables filled up shortly after ours, so we were not the only ones in the restaurant.
We started with the Crab stuffed avocado which was delicious. My husband had the Maryland Shrimp which was also amazing! Very heavy on the garlic, but SO good. We both ordered off the "Special" (read: expensive) Valentine Menu for our entrees.
He ordered the Osso Bucco, which was a huge portion, accompanied by asparagus, mushroom risotto, spinach, and a sauteed vegetable medley. I tried all of his veggies & the risotto, which were yummy - he wouldn't let me get my hands on the lamb. I ordered the Tuna Skewers, which was also a great choice, accompanied by a vegetable medley.
For dessert, we were talked into the "special" Valentine dessert, which was a heart shaped 3 layer mousse type cake thing. It was presented well, although a bit risque looking, but delicious.
I would go back, definitely. The only reason for the 4 stars & not 5 is the price. I am not crazy about "Special Holiday" menus, that is the reason I do not go out on Valentine's Day. So, I was a little turned off by the fact that the restaurant was extending Valentine's Day longer...
