Went there tonight and had a very nice meal. The ambiance leaves a little to be desired (it would help a lot if they lowered or turned off the lights), but the food was excellent and the service had the right amount of attentiveness.
I had the root vegetable soup, which seemed a little bit like a winter dish, but was very tasty (seemed to have turnips, parsnips, potato, and carrot), and the roast pork. The pork was one of the daily specials, and I kind of flummoxed the waitress when I asked her what came with it. Seems like she would either have known or they would have had it written on the board. (In the event, it came with gratin scalloped potatoes, turnips, and green beans). Regardless, it was very good.
My wife had the endive salad with pears and brie, which she liked a lot. (I'll note out that both of our plates were wiped clean at the end of the starter course.) She followed that up with the steak frites, which she enjoyed, but my observation was that the cut of meat seemed to have a lot of fat and gristle and was a little sweet -- not unpleasantly so, but surprisingly.
Dessert was chocolate mousse, which was a small enough portion and light enough to be just right to split. Disappointingly, they didn't have a black tea (I settled for orangey-black and my wife had Earl Grey), but that's a minor concern.
Overall, a winner. I'd happily go back.
