I recently dined here in July 2009 with my girlfriend. I had been planning on trying to arrange a nice romantic dinner for a weekend away, and after a recommendation for this restaurant was given to me by our innkeeper, we decided to make reservations and give it a try.
We started with the cheese course and a bottle of Jekel Gewurztraminer (inexpensive but good) and were impressed by the cheeses offered in the sampler of 6. It came with appropriate accompaniments and palate cleansers.
Next up was what, until that time I never knew existed, was called an "amuse bouche" of cherry tomatoes and basil and some type of gelatinized spice that I cannot remember. It was very good.
Next was the usual round of salads, which were good, and then the main course. I had the rack of lamb, and it was spiced and cooked perfectly and was accompanied by small green beans and some most excellent mashed potatoes. My girlfriend had the halibut and succotash dish and she was floored by it herself.
We finished up with dessert, which for me was an ice cream concoction resembling rocky road, and was very good. She had the creme brulee, which, after I tasted it, beat creme brulee I had had anywhere else.
All around, this meal was most excellent, if a bit expensive, but it was more than worth it to support a local small business; especially one that promotes sourcing their food from local farmers and other small businesses.
