My daughter and son-in-law recently had their wedding reception at Absinthe. So this may not be the regular kind of review, but they did such a fine job with 75 people that I would like to recognize the good work.
We had the full place to ourselves, with a cocktail reception and sit down meal with a selection of a few appetizers and mains. The sliders and other canapés at the reception were excellent and the sliders in particular got great reviews. The tomato/chevrochon salad and the chilled velouté soup were also excellent. The beef filet main and salmon main were cooked just right.......hard to do especially to nail the beef at medium rare for about 60 people. Hats off to the chef and staff!!
Dessert was a chocolate fondant and crème brulée, just the right size.
Tom and the staff did a fabulous job of the service, it flowed just right and the small details were looked after eg.wine top-ups etc. Attentive but not intrusive.
I know it may seem I am basking in the glow of a wedding, but I have been to weddings where the food and service was just passable; Absinthe really aced this evening, well done!!
