Went here for our anniversary, alone, just the two of us. Even though the place was basically empty, and we had reservations, the hostess tried to seat us a table right next to another couple, even though I requested something more private. She looked completely bewildered when I asked again for a table with slightly more separation. First impressions are important, and this wasn't a great one.
Our waiter was really excellent at describing the menu and explaining the choices. Nice job, Brian.
The food was very good, although both filets were a bit overlooked. They were not far enough off the mark to send back, but many would have. The special appetizer was fried oysters, and they were, by far, the best I have ever had, and were the highlight of the meal. We had sides of marinated mushrooms, asparagus with hollandais, and the chopped salad. The salad was excellent, the other sides just ok.
Deserts were good but the bread pudding with whiskey sauce was dense and heavy, although the sauce was very good.
Although we waited 30 minutes for dessert (system malfunctions we were told), Brian was extremely apologetic and made it right without any prompting. Very much appreciated, and once again showed the expected amount of personality and professionalism one hopes for when choosing the special event restaurant.
Overall, a very good meal, not perfect, but very much enjoyed. Pricey, we'll yeah, but that was expected. Some training of the hostess station attendants would be my one recommendation.
I would score is a solid 8 of 10.
