We dined at the LMM room while on our honeymoon, before going to the Anne of Green Gables musical at the Confederation Centre. Because we had a showtime to meet, I made reservations ahead of time, and the lady who took our reservation was kind enough to make a note of what time we needed to be done by, as well as that we were on our honeymoon, and passed the info on to our server.
We sat down overlooking the ocean bay, the table & chairs having been arranged so we could make the most of the view. Both our server and our food runner came to introduce themselves, and, without listing every single thing they did, the service was amazing. Our server, in addition to explaining the items on the menu, took the time to chat with us, and gave us some tips about places to visit on the Island. We loved her.
We were first treated to an amuse bouche - deep fried yogurt (!) with berries macerated in Grand Marnier. Yum. We were also brought fresh breads with apple butter, a herbed oil, and black cherry balsamic from a local shop called Liquid Gold. We ordered a bottle of The New Red, a locally made wine, which was very nice. We felt it was very similar to some of the Ontario reds we've had. For our appetizer we ordered the clam & mussel chowder to share, and were pleasantly surprised to see that they had taken the trouble to plate a half-order separately for each of us. It was delicious, with nice-sized chunks of seafood and potato, well cooked, in a very yummy broth. We had a hard time choosing our main courses and decided to order two different ones so we could switch halfway. We got the wild boar with sausage ravioli, and the "catch of the day", which was halibut with fingerling potatoes and a maple glaze. Everything was perfectly cooked, with the exception of the ravioli, as we did find the pasta to be a little on the tough side. This was the only thing we didn't love.
On our server's suggestion, we split the tiramisu for dessert, which was a lovely end to the meal. We were again pleasantly surprised to have fresh chocolates brought with our bill. Very nice to have complimentary touches at both the beginning and end of the meal!
We were impressed with how well the menu reflected the local tastes of the Island, and service was outstanding. Our meal was timed perfectly so that we had plenty of time to walk to the Confederation Centre in time for the show, without feeling rushed at all. This is a more expensive place to eat, but for a special occasion it is well worth it, particularly considering the level of service and the little extras that AREN'T included in the bill. We would definitely return here the next time we visit PEI.
