This is a follow up to my less than satisfactory review last month. For this next visit we ordered different entrées.
We again enjoyed the appetizer bread, though I requested regular butter to replace the garlic butter normally served (too much garlic for my taste).
We each started out with a house salad with bacon balsamic vinaigrette dressing. The salad was made with a delicious variety of fresh greens, pecan pieces, and craisans. Excellent. And the dressing was so good I wish it were generally available to claim as a favorite wherever I have a salad.
For the entée this time I ordered the Bourbon Street Filet. It was grilled to a proper medium rare and was very good. I would rank it as #5 or 6 in the area. The top steak in the area is so good that it makes table conversation difficult. The Bourbon Street Filet here is not that good, but its mild marinate had a good flavor. The steak was definitely passable.
My wife's prime rib was not cooked to order, being more rare than she prefers. And, while heavy marbling is normal for prime rib, it was excessive here. After trimming there was little meat to eat.
After my last visit the owner commented kindly on my review and noted that he would have liked a manager to know when something is not satisfactory. I would have preferred that, too, but the server just shrugged her shoulders when I showed her the state of the Carriage House ribeye I had ordered then. He would also have preferred to have heard from me afterward in less than a week, but I thought 3 days, while normally too long, is still less than half of a week. However, most people will not say anything about a problem to avoid embarrassment...choosing simply to not return. Keeping it real here. And this last visit was much better.
