Had dinner at Rose Plantation last evening. Seated at our request on the enclosed porch. Could hear the piano in the background as we dined... not intrusive on conversation but yet adding to the great ambience. Ordered a Cab which was being offered as a special for $67 per bottle.... quite excellent. Meals were chicken Marsala, chicken Milano, salmon, and catfish... all very good except the catfish. I noticed my wife had eaten only 1/3 of of one of the two large pieces of catfish... when I asked why she said it tasted odd... I tried a bite and had to admit it was at best peculiar tasting... to the degree I would have been concerned to consume... at that point it was late and my wife as is her fashion accepted the distressing meal with her normal grace ... not wanting to spoil the evening for the other couple. I was quite surprised though when neither waitress upon seeing 90% of the meal was unconsumed did not ask if something was wrong. I write this now knowing we should have respectfully complained... $30 for two bites of catfish and sweet potatoes is really quite a poor result... Rose plantation has always been a mixed experience for us... great ambience, expensive for the area, and unique... first time with another couple was and outstanding experience made more so by an excellent and effervescent waitress clearly on the top of her game... focused on customer satisfaction. Second was almost a deal breaker... a very unimpressive but still quite expensive luncheon.... last night was enjoyable but still disappointing ... $200 for the four of us with one inedible meal. It is the details that separate the great from the average... Rose Plantation misses on the details and relies on the ambience excessively... that leaves them tarnished
