We got a window seat which is nice but the view isn't much to write about - a few trees, tour buses parked across the street, a parking lot, and a few high-rises. Had the sky been clearer I think we would have seen the north shore mountains.
We did not get a cocktail or wine menu when we sat down, but if you ask for a cocktail, they will make it for you. And I assume if you ask for a wine list, they will bring it. Their wine collection is visible downstairs and it seems quite extensive and exotic. My bloody mary was tasty and they did not skimp on the vodka.
As for the food, the amuse-bouche was a stinging nettle and honey drink. Tasty and beautifully presented, but you only get about 1/2 shot. My husband started with the gazpacho soup which was small but delicious. He then ordered the venison entrée which comes with a sizable portion of meat, and you can smell the hay it had been prepare in. He was impressed by the venison.
I started with the seafood soup which I cannot say was delicious, but if you are adventurous and want to experience new flavours and an interesting combo of 5 different textures, this is the starter for you. It contains a sizable slice of sea urchin of which I consumed about half. Sea urchin was definitely not for me, but now I can say I tried it. In lieu of an entrée, I ordered the salmon tartar appetizer. Again, beautifully presented and a decent-sized portion, but the spiciness totally dominated the flavour. Wish I could have tasted more of the fish.
For dessert we ordered the strawberry-rhubarb crisp, and it was exceptional. The combination of flavours and textures, the freshness of the ingredients was like they just came from the garden (which they likely did). It was perfect.
Ambiance: The music was well-chosen and appropriate for dining. The décor is spare with the light fixtures being the most interesting items in the upstairs room.
With tax and tip, we paid $123 for two people. Overall, the experience was decent value for the money. had the bill been higher, I would have been disappointed.
