Following recent positive comments five of us went there tonight. This elegant little place is a definitely positive addition to San Mateo eating quality. The service was good, though the kitchen was slow. One fried calamari appetizer was crisp and well done and the salad one of the many inventive combinations on the menu persimmon, pomagranite seeds and greens. All entrees were excellent with the lamb rare combined with apricot, nuts and pilaf. Green pasta was good as were the liguini and fish.
Desserts were full of pumpkin this and that - bread pudding well above average. We brought wine for a modest $12 corkage- 1984 Pichon that was fully mature and smooth as silk.
