We had dinner at Serratto last night and the memory of the fabulous food still lingers. I just returned from 24 days in Italy and if the food in Italy was as good as Serratto I would definitely have had a better time on my vacation.
I don't know if I'd say this restaurant is Italian - although there are several pasta dishes, the main courses don't scream "Italian". Our group had seared sea scallops with French green lentils, Bouillabaisse, grilled quail on a bed of apples and butternut squash, and Dungeness crab ravioli. We started with Caesar Salad (an American invention, BTW) French onion soup, and calamari. Everything was delicious and I'd highly recommend it, except for the calamari, which were pretty rubbery and bland, and, though I didn't try them, I heard the ravioli were also pretty bland.
My favorite dishes were the quail (yes, it's small, but have you ever seen a quail? they are tiny birds!) - it was boned and grilled perfectly, and the bed of roasted apples, squash, and curly endive was extraordinary; and the Bouillabaisse - an outstanding broth flavored with toasted fennel seed, shaved fennel bulb, and saffron, with a generous mound of fresh seafood.
We dined on a Tuesday night and the service was excellent, friendly, and helpful, without hovering, and the food was hot and promptly served. I'm a good cook myself, and I'm happy to pay for good food and good service, and Serratto came through.
