We went to Lake Ridge Restaurant in Round Lake (me for the first time) earlier this month. We sat in the dining room opposite the host station. I also took a peak at the bar area (behind the room we were in). Now on to the food:
*Artichoke souffle - good. Would probably not get it again.
*Escargot - very good. Served non-traditionally in french bread.
*Sea scallops pan seared with sesame seaweed salad and finished with curry bell pepper vinaigrette - very, very good. Scallops cooked perfectly.
*Duck breast pan seared to medium and presented with a southern comfort, black cherry demi glace - duck was cooked medium rare, very tender. Sauce was delicious.
We had espresso and dessert. I'm a little behind in my reports and it's showing as I try to remember all the wonderful food we've been eating. Can't remember much about dessert except that it was really good. Service was excellent. After a recent dinner out elsewhere with an inexperienced server, Lake Ridge reminded me what a difference an experienced server makes.
