When arriving, you are asked to choose between the Lite Fare menu -- and sit in a dark booth or at the bar up front -- or the regular, more expensive dinner menu avallable with seating at the back where there are large windows looking out onto Mirror Lake. Since the regular menu prices are $25-$39, and we weren't very hungry, we chose the Lite Fare.
The service was very good: attentive, warm and efficient. Crusty warm bread and olive oil with balsamic are brought to the table. Lite Fare entrees are smaller than regular ones, hence the name. Some might consider them as appetizers, but each entree includes a salad or soup, so it might be enough of a meal for others.
The Frisee Salad ordered as one entree was flawless and delicious. The dinner salad that preceeded the Pulled Pork Spring Rolls had a wonderful drizzle of a thick, sweet balsamic vinegar. Spring rolls are usually the Vietnamese style wrapped in unfried rice paper shells, but these rolls are more like Chinese egg rolls: deep fried without the traditional spring roll filling. It's OK if they aren't traditional, but the unfried kind would have been more refreshing. It also would have been better if the shell wasn't overcooked. The pork and the little bit of vegetables in the roll were a bit flavorless, so it was a good thing there was a spicy dipping sauce. The rolls were dripping with excess oil, too, so they should have been drained a little better.
If I lived in the area or was staying longer, I would give the restaurant another try, but there are so many other places to dine.
