We had heard that the cocktail were well-crafted, so when the hostess told us that it would be a 10 minute wait, we were happy to head for the bar. The wait was much shorter, so we barely had time to visit with the bartender and order.
We liked the bejeweled and alpenglow cocktails (~$14 each). I did not care much for the appletude (a bit sweet and just one flavor) and the dream was ok. I had heard about the campfire cocktail and asked for it even though it was not on the menu. Although the drink was not exactly the campfire, it was excellent. It was probably the "smokey the pear". The waiter was able to answer questions we had about the cocktails which was quite impressive.
The prix fixe is not mandatory and it does not include dessert. I ordered two courses while the other 3 of us had the prix fixe 3 course. The pork belly was soft all through with no crispiness. While it was moist, we prefer a combination of crisp top on a soft, melt-in-your mouth chunk of pork. The elk carpaccio was tasty and the sweetbreads were rich and tender. The portion of the sweetbreads was enough for 2 since they are so rich.
For entrees, the duck was excellent and the lamb was good, although ordered as medium-rare was served rare. The trout (signature dish) was creative and delicious.
We only ordered one dessert which was some sort of chocolate mousse. It was fine. Overall, the service was excellent, the cocktails were very good, and the food was good. We thought the 3-course was filling, so the price is ok.
