After a long wait, we finally were able to eat at Lantern. Being big Euro foodies we had heard and read excellent reviews. We arrived to small but intimate restaurant to be brought to a table along the wall. The tables are small and close to each other so if you are going for an intimate private dinner this is not the place, you can hear everything your neighbors are talking about! The waitress came to the table and asked if we wanted water and we decided on that, we were not asked if we wanted a cocktail or wine but I didn't think anything of it I thought ok that will come after they bring water. She came back with the water, took our food orders (set menu) and walked away to place the order. In the meantime someone came and took the wine and drink list away along with the glasses! The amuse came of pickled vegetables and before we could even eat one or two bites the first course was brought to us. I wasn't even asked if I wanted wine with the dinner. The soft shell crab cakes were divine, absolutely delicious! I can not argue with that, one of the most delicious dishes I have ever tasted. This was a promising preview of what was yet to come. About 5 minutes later our main course came out. I couldn't believe how fast the food was coming out of the kitchen. My son even asked how they could make it so fast? The second course was steak on a bed of fried spinach. The meat was ok, the spinach way too salty and greasy. We did not finish this dish. Desert was nothing special an ice cream sundae. We were in and out of the restaurant under an hour. There was little conversation or interaction with us from the staff, normally people ask how the food is etc. Nothing. Really disappointed, I looked forward to coming and it did not live up to my expectations.
