I've eaten at a lot of "fancy" places and oftentimes you're paying for the ambience or the name, but the food is mediocre. I must say that there was nothing mediocre about the food here. We got the 3 course dinner with wine pairings and as great a value as it was, the taste was even better!! I started with the House Cured Smoked Salmon. It was super yummy and didn't leave me with a smokey taste afterward. I tried the Jamaican Jerk Pork Belly and that was even yummier! For my main course, I got the Maine Sea Scallops. There were only three (the perfect amount for a 3 course meal), but they were very large scallops and perfectly cooked and prepared. I've eaten scallops everywhere and I must say this was one of the best! Finally, I had the Half-baked Chocolate Cake which was good, but I think the Shaft's Bleu Cheese Plate was better and had there been honey to enjoy with the apple slices and cheese, it would've been perfect. The wine pairings were very good as well. The best part were the special touches like the amuse-bouche and dessert confection which were compliments of the chef, as well as 2 complimentary glasses of bubbly pink and a card signed by the staff to celebrate our anniversary. The restaurant itself is a bit small, but beautifully decorated and it accepts reservations, so you should be fine. Don't let the fact that it's a "hotel restaurant" fool you. There is nothing "hotel restaurant" about this place. Amazing!
