We were looking for a relaxed dinner in a conversation-friendly restaurant with good food. Quince exceeded our expectations!
I had the bone marrow starter, two had cauliflower soup, one salad. All of us were delighted! Portions were quite adequate, and comparable to any fine dining restaurant in our experience...and we have lots of experience.
I had the duck entree, others had shrimp and lamb. My duck was phenomenal, one of the best duck breasts I have eaten, and duck is a favorite of mine. I don't always like lentils but these were outstanding and left me hunting each stray piece down. By the end of the meal i had cleaned my plate so well it was doubtful the dishwasher had much work left. My companions were equally pleased with their items.
We ended with a cheese course, Nancy's Camembert was as outstanding as always, the others did not equal that quality in my mind. Our waiter was very familiar with the cheeses and helpful in guiding us.
Service was fine but not outstanding. Our waiter was knowledgeable and pleasant, but too often absent. Our wine glasses took a while to be refilled for instance. As others have commented, there seemed to be one server for the room.
One quibble, given the type of meal and ambiance I was surprised that there was no amuse. It would seem to fit the type of experience they are trying to create.
Finally, the prices were more than reasonable, including an affordable wine list. Sunday evenings include a $35 prix fixe menu. Our waiter was very good about pointing out that two of our party had actually ordered prix fixe menu items and converting their orders to the prix fixe value.
We'll be back.
