We've lived on the "western shore" of the Susquehanna River for a bit over a month now. America is full of chain restaurants and some of them are pretty good. Usually, though we're good at steak and potatoes. It was a wonderful surprise to find a restaurant with originality, such as French bread sliced thin accompanied with a mango cilantro butter provided for each table while you look over the menu. It was addictive. We had the sea trout, which looked very much like a thick salmon, prepared with capers and served over asparagus and mashed potatoes. It was wonderfully cooked and presented. Our other meal was the crab cakes, also very nice. There is a good selection of beers and a decent wine list.
The service was personable and efficient. Ther's nothing I'd change. Overall, it was the best meal we've had since returning from Italy where we lived for 3 years. There's great skill in the kitchen at the Garlic Poet now. We'll visit regularly testing everything that looks good. Great option for something diferent than a chain restaurant. Yummy.
