Cerise in Bryn Mawr - Birthday dinner. Booked a deuce at 7:30. There was one other table of four in the restaurant. I was surprised it wasn't busier. We had the Four-course prix fixe available Wednesday through Sunday - $47. There is a $39 three-course version on Wed. and Sun. Corkage was a reasonable five bucks.
Food was VERY well-prepared and presented. Service was quick but we were not rushed. As we eat hanger steak at home all the time we skipped that (the most popular dish there.) Portions were adequate (I am the type who will order a 32-oz. Rib Eye) and we left sated if not stuffed. Food was rich, but in those quantities, you don't feel guilty. Menus change every week, but these were out choices. We will definitely be back. The Moroccan sauce with the Haddock was probably the standout. It was something you might expect with lamb, but it surprisingly did not overpower the fish steak.
