It is very nice to be able to have some European history nestled so close to home, and see what years of hard work and dedication can accomplish...
My review is mainly on the Restaurant...
We had an impromptu stop recently one Friday evening. No reservations and we, being a table of five, were quickly seated and taken care of. Our service was wonderful, as she was attentive, descriptive, helpful and patient with us as we studied the menu and asked questions.
The atmosphere and decor was definitely European, a mix from Swiss and German influences and was interesting to observe as we waited on our meal.
Wine - We tried two different offerings from the waitresses recommendation, and these wines, a Cab Blanc and Shiraz, were bitter, strong alcohol aroma and not very palatable, but we hated to say anything as we declined the first bottle. We ordered the bottle and drank it, but it was not a good wine. We did not sample others in the whites, desserts, etc., so our exposure was just the two mentioned above.
Most of us ordered steaks and they were prepared to order, although the flavor was just so-so. The green beans and German potatoes were kind of mushy and over-cooked. This may have been due to us arriving late for dinner and may have picked up the end of day stuff.
The bread was good, service, great, steaks cooked to order and those were positives!
The chairs were very hard, food a bit mushy, and the two reds were so-so...I'll probably try again because the service was great, and we did come at the end of day.
The drive there was beautiful, the landscaping was very pastoral and attractive. It's a positive to have this in the area. I really hate to rate this average, but it is based on one visit, so I do want to try it again.
