Don’t you hate it when you make a reservation at an upscale restaurant for a special event (birthday) and someone says to you, “Oh, we went there and didn’t like it.” We went ahead anyway. What were they talking about? It was a superb meal and a wonderful experience. And, they were open on Monday evening.
Our table was in an area between the kitchen and another dining room, so there was a constant flow of waiters going by. I can say, the plates they were carrying looked very tempting. I almost tried the four-course vegetarian tasting menu ($60) but had the sea bass instead ($37). It flaked perfectly at the touch of the fork. The presentations were so artistic that I took photos of them. This is my first time to upload photos as part of a review.
We don’t know our waiter’s name. This isn’t a “Hi. my name is Dan and I’ll be taking care of you tonight” sort of place. The purpose of a good meal is not to bond with your wait person, however much they think that might help their tip. Our waiter was friendly, helpful, and observant. Just when I thought our dirty plates had been their too long, our waiter and another appeared and quickly cleared the table.
The Meyer lemon and lemon curd crepe was an outstanding dessert, much more lemony than the key lime tart was limey. I had a memorable night (turned the big seven oh). In a city filled with gourmet restaurants the competition is tough. Some of the reviews said Geronimo was overpriced, but I feel the quality was there. Besides, my brother David paid for it.
