We had dinner in this historic hotel. The whole place oozes a Victorian atmosphere with lots of antiques. Very interesting lobby and saloon where you could also have dinner.
We opted for the more expensive Virginian Restaurant. Without a reservation we got a very nice table at the window in one of the rooms of this charming restaurant. We had a glass of wine which was fine.
The menu looked great. My wife ordered Lamb Shank and I asked for the Chicken Marsala. The waiter added that my dish had no real Marsala (why name it like that?)..
To our diappointment the food was not good. The chicken had a sharp taste of liquor that did not resemble Marsala at all. The lamb shank was not tasty too. Instead of polenta my wife had asked for French fries, However, the lamb was still served with polenta.
There were too many imperfections to rate this restaurant as excellent or very good. Really a pity for such a romantic place.
