Yes, it's a bit pricey. I've been twice in the last few weeks: my book club met here for lunch and the restaurant pulled together tables to seat the 12 of us together. I ordered the pecan crusted trout, but since I loathe cilantro I asked them to omit the peach salsa with cilantro. As good as it was, it would have been nice for them to offer a substitute condiment, but the waitress said they really didn't have anything else. The tortilla slaw was a disappointment as it is only shredded cabbage and shredded tortilla crisps....have you ever tried to eat tortilla strips with a fork? Hopefully they are checking for constructive criticisms and will conjure up a sauce to make this truly a "slaw".
I signed up for the e-club and instantly received a $10 off per table coupon to be used within 2 weeks. So suggested to hubby we go for our anniversary dinner. He had the prime rib special and I had the filet & shrimp. Both were accompanied by the salted skin loaded potato. If you are one to normally eat the skin, you may want to skip or else realize the rock salt will probably suffice your week's sodium intake. I asked for my filet cooked medium well, and he asked if they could filet it....you know, slice it in two to cook more evenly. I've always seen this as a tactic for a chef to take the easy road to getting the steak to a non-pink state. I said no, I prefer the pink center (but not so juicy) and the seared sides. It was a great pleasure to have my steak arrive perfectly cooked. And yes, I did wander over to watch the steak griller at work over the fire.
It was all good. We split the fresh but otherwise so-so BLT salad. Two entrees, one salad split (I like that the menu suggests this is a good salad for two) and $10 off made the pre-tip bill about $58. So not your "I don't feel like cooking, let's go out to eat" type of place.
That being said, I am always entranced by good decor. 5 star for the look! Even the ladies room had little niches with votive candles burning (though at 6pm I would have thought it would be picked up after a bit better for so early in the evening).
As we headed out, the bar area was packed with lots of martinis seen on high-top tables, much abuzz for Friday date night. Looks like everyone is trying out the new kid in town. I liked it....only needs a few tweaks....as far as price....you get what you pay for!
