My boyfriend and I visited Gavens in Middleton on Wednesday evening.
To start we ordered the Alaskan King crab legs, and crab cake.
Both were delicious. The crab cake was meaty, full of flavor, and spared the drowning of sauce.
The legs were fresh, served on ice with cocktail and an aioli.
We both had filet mignon, I had mine with a baked potato and he had a lobster casserole and au gratin. The lobster casserole was sweet and creamy and very savory.
Our steaks were cooked to perfection. (Med Rare)
We also had sorbet and creme brulee for dessert. The sorbet was lemon and raspberry in a martini glass... and the creme brulee classic with a perfectly bruleed top.
We ordered a pinot noir from williamette valley (Kings Estate 2003) which was fairly priced, we did try to order 3 other wines but they were out of all three...) our wine service was on point with one exception, after we were presented with it, we poured it ourselves until the bottle was empty. I do not know how Gavens does things, but we usually expect to not have to worry about pouring our wine. (A very small complaint for a near perfect evening)
The bread was fresh and warm, served french style. Our afterdinner drinks were served very quickly and with a smile.
Service was great from water, to clearing our plates to crumbing our table. Our waiter was polite, professional and friendly.
We will definitley be back.
