Amuse Bouche – Disappointing

We ate at Amuse-Bouche last night and were disappointed with the quality of the meal. It started off well. We sat outside on a lovely evening. We brought a nice Pinot Noir (corkage $30) and they responded by bringing appropriate burgundy glasses. I had scallops wrapped in smoked duck (ham-like texture and taste) with a morel cream sauce. The scallops were well cooked and the dish worked well. My wife had beet carpaccio with a watercress salad; a little sweet, but good. When the mains arrived, the meal deteriorated. My wife had tuna with in a cashew, panko crust, the tuna was flavourless and the crust added nothing. I had the butter poached lobster with a crab and lobster black ravioli. The dish had multiple faults – small, expensive ($33), tough and tasteless except for the broth, which was over-infused with vanilla. It is a pretty place, and we wanted to like it, but the sub-par food would preclude a return visit.
