We eat out often (as you can see from our reviews). When 131 opened over 3 years ago we had a terrible experience and had not planned to return. This week while cleaning out a drawer we found the manager's card on which he had written a free meal offer as an apology to get us back. After over 3 years we assumed the card would be invalid and that the manager would be long gone.
With extra time before our movie started we decided last minute to give the card a try and see what response would be given. If they said yes tot eh card we would order, if no then we wold go next door and eat.
The server without hesitation said "of course!" and thanked us for returning. The next 90 minutes went pretty much the same way. By the end of the meal we felt like we had made friends with staff Member and now had another dinner option in the area.
Michael (female) handled our table professionally and was able to find that fine line between interrupting/hovering and still always being aware/available. The food was very good. My pasta was tasty and the trout was properly prepared. The smoked salmon they have a house specialty is very good. I do not care for smoked fish but enjoyed it, my wife enjoyed it even more. The manager on duty made two proper stops by the table while walking the floor, always a good sign.
The experience was so good, that wen the movie ended we went back for a glass of wine and desert near the outdoor fireplace. This turned out to be an enjoyable date night If you have never been here or have not been here for a long time, it's time for a visit.
