I dined here for my wedding anniversary and was so impressed I decided to take my best friend for her birthday dinner on a very rainy evening in Coral Gables. The valets, both of them, escorted us out of our cars with umbrellas while the monsoon was raging. I had made reservations for her birthday. When they sat us, she saw the red rose and confetti on the table. She was impressed, they called her by her name and immediately told her Happy Birthday. We ordered the Tropical Maritini from the happy hour menu, be advised that in order to get the happy hour price you have to be seated at the bar area. I asked for a price reduction when the bill came, waiter asked the manager, and they adjusted. Same goes for the appetizers which are 6.00 before 7 pm. We later ordered each a glass of wine from their selection via ipad, very techy and fun.
The filet mignon flatbread is outstanding, meat so tender it's like butter. Their bread is yummy, with a parmesan tomato spread that is so tasty. My friend ordered the tempura shrimp from their small plates menu, that's the only way we knew we could make room for dessert . She adored her tempura.( she can't wait to go back)
I ordered the scallops which are served with veggies, light and fresh tasting. I've ordered the sliced filet mignon over risotto from the same menu before and recommend that highly. Our waiter asked if we wanted the chocolate lava since it takes a while to cook. Since I knew that they would present it to her with a birthday candle , I said yes. Again my friend was impressed by the presentation, 2 tiny scoops of vanilla ice cream, divided by a sliver of a chocolate chip cookie, nestled inside some type of shell. The lava oozed with chocolately goodness, topped by three blueberries. I took the rest home for hubby since we were both stuffed. At the end of our meal, not only was my friend gifted with a $25.00 gift card presented by the hostess, our waiter brought her a ribboned box with 4 truffles! She was amazed by the attentiveness and eye for detail. Our waiter asked me for my keys as we were finishing up so that the valet could have my car ready. The next day, I was emailed a Thank you form the restaurant hoping that we enjoyed our meal and thatning us for patronage. Seriously, who does that anymore?? I recommend highly for a romantic dinner, family event, or just a girl's night out. It's class all the way..
