I made reservations at the Wellington Room for my girlfriend's birthday. The experience was excellent.
Location/Atmosphere: The space is rustic; you climb up a set of stairs to get to the restaurant. It almost feels like you're walking into somebody's apartment. The bar is directly ahead as you enter, with the dining area off to the right. The location offers wonderful views of the river. As we booked dinner at six, we were in the perfect position to watch a gorgeous sunset.
Service: Our waitress was very, very attentive and friendly. As I had mentioned my girlfriend's birthday when making reservations, they gave her a card signed by the entire staff! The chef came out to say hello to us at the table, asking about our night. It was a really nice touch, totally unexpected and very appreciated.
Price: It's priced where you'd expect great food in a nice, romantic location to be priced. A three course dinner for two, with a bottle of wine, ran about $105 before tip. It was worth every penny.
THE FOOD: I have saved the best for last. The food was incredible. The flavor combinations were well designed and the cooking was nothing short of masterful. The table next to us was insisting that the chef, Matthew, "must be Gordon Ramsey's son". We heard several tables in the room "oohing" and "ahhhing" over their food and I have to admit that we were too! The food is that good.
