We came across this slightly hidden restaurant and decided to make a night of it. We walked in to a blueish lit restaurant with glitz all over. It was not as crowded when we got there, but it filled in progressively throughout our meal. We got there about 6:30 for dinner. All the waiters were dressed in white coats and were very attentive to us.
Before we ordered, the waiter asked a question I hadn't heard ever while going out to eat. Usually I'M the one asking if t=food contains certain allergens. He asked, "Does anyone have any allergies we need to be careful about?" I have some mild food allergies, but I appreciated that he asked because you never know if the sauces contain gluten or soy or whatever people can be allergic to.
We started with the Three cheese ravioli with wilted spinach, crispy pancetta and sage butter. Oh. My. God. I about melted in my seat. The sage and pancetta put it over the edge and the pasta was homemade.
My boyfriend then ordered his SECOND filet mignon that week, since apparently, he was on a kick. He loved it! It was crispy on the outside and tender and juicy in the middle. Great flavor. I ordered the Amish Chicken which was a half roasted chicken and it came on a bed of roasted potatoes and natural jus. I devoured it....slowly....so I could savor the flavor. We also got a side of the truffle potato gratin which was hot and creamy and every cheese lover's dream. It paired perfectly with both our meals.
For dessert, we ordered the Cloud 9. I am a huge cotton candy fan and this came with a "cloud" of cotton candy on a metal stand with 3 mini ice cream cones inserted into the cotton candy. It came originally with a chocolate covered pretzel, but I replaced it with a cookie since I'm allergic to the yeast in pretzels.
All in all, it was an amazing meal and we had great service.
