“Splendid evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

Our view was so lovely we hated to look at the menu; but once we did, it got our attention. Ordered Terrine de Canard Truffee - Duck liver mousse with black truffles, currant-port jelly, and apricot marmalade. My mother loved this. Then she had the mushroom soup - which was just fine, not spectacular, and I had the superb Raviolis de Courge - Roasted sqaush ravioli with brown butter, Basque cheese, toasted hazelnuts, and sage. For entrees she had the Morue Pochee a Huile d'Olive Vierge - Olive oil poached Alaskan true cod with saffron braised fennel, blood orange, watercress and olive oil veloute from the Menu du Chef and I devoured every delicious morsel of the Rainbow trout with sauteed cauliflower, seasonal mushrooms, white wine butter sauce and thyme. I drank a nice dry French riesling and we left sated. Our wait staff was Chris and Chrissie - perfectly trained to be friendly but never intrusive.

“Beautiful View from the Window and on the Plate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

I recently celebrated my birthday and it had been some time since my last visit. The food was fabulous. It was a most memorable meal and I recommend it to anyone. You get an excellent view of the gardens and the beautiful Lake Michigan.
