My daughter recently became a member and invited me to dine with her on a Saturday evening. The atmosphere is lovely, beautiful décor, and the night time view is impressive from wall to wall windows on the 18th floor. Dress for the occasion.
We arrived 6:30 ish and were pleased to be welcomed with a Saturday wine special @ $2.00 for house offerings. Service was prompt, pleasant, helpful.
After perusing the interesting menu, we chose appetizers She Crab Soup and Watercress-Mango salad. Delectable and not over priced at $7.25 and $6.25. We were allowed adequate time to chat, sip wine, and enjoy our starters before the entrees arrived.
We chose Sweet Chili Salmon and Stuffed Poblano Pepper. The pepper was exquisite. The salmon was good, though a little too rare. I didn't send it back. My disappointment was in the serving size - significantly smaller than I'm used to, especially considering the $22.25 price tag.
Smaller portions may be intentional because we had plenty of room for dessert. There was no dessert menu, but our server was pleased to recite half a dozen available options. We decided to splurge on two - a chocolate gelato and a cheesecake. Both choices were divine, but we had no idea what we'd be charged and were slightly stunned when we got the tab. Cheesecake was $10 and gelato $7.50, again for small/medium portions.
Not including drinks, we spent $89 on two appetizers, two entrees and two desserts. That total includes tax and a 22% gratuity, which is automatic. I'm typically a generous tipper at 20-30% for good service and, for this visit, the service was good. But I'm not keen on someone determining in advance that I'll tip that sum regardless of service.
All in all a pleasant dining experience, but don't arrive hungry.
