We dined recently at Dream Dance for a nice holiday outing (third visit to this restaurant). Unfortunately we had to go through the noisy and very smoky casino to enter and leave the restaurant because we were parked in the structure. (Perhaps the available valet parking would eliminate that smelly casino walk?). The restaurant is very peaceful and tasteful once you get inside. The patrons were a mix of nicely dressed folks like us who were celebrating the season, along with plenty of diners in Green Bay Packer sweatshirts and other too-casual attire. The meal started with the complimentary amuse bouche which wasn't as dazzling as others I've been offered, but it was free so I really can't complain. The salads were the biggest "miss" of the evening. All elements of a chicken confit salad lacked flavor. The chicken did not taste like other confit I've enjoyed, rather it tasted more like leftover unseasoned cold roast chicken. The dressing was supposed to be some kind of fruit vinaigrette but it lacked oil and flavor. The only other thing on the salad was a small pile of dried cranberries, and some croutons that were also completely flavorless. I don't mind paying $9 or $10 for an appetizer salad, but I expect it to be worth it. A beet salad was beautiful but too salty, and the house salad was ok. Beer cheese soup was delicious. Bread basket was nice. Entrees were very good, including fish of the day, two steaks which which didn't wow but were done perfectly, and fantastic scallops. Steaks included choice of rub or sauce, house potato, and house salad. The non-steak entrees did not include any sides but the portions and accompaniments were quite generous. A small miss with the scallops was the trumpet mushrooms served with them, which were so tough they could barely be cut with the serranted dinner knife that came with the meal (but they tasted great). Service was attentive and friendly. Cost (with alcohol) was about $80 per dinner. We were given complimentary palmiers in little cello pouches on our way out. We decided to try one turn at a slot on our way out of the casino, and came out ahead enough to cover 25% of our total bill. But we reeked of cigarette smoke just from the short time we spent in the casino.
