The Orchard - Review

4 of us went to dinner here last night. We were seated right away and the ambiance of the place was calm and had a warm glow.
We started with the Short Rib flat bread - this was just OK as the short rib meat seemed to be sitting around for a while and was not hot.
Lobster empanadas were excellent. Huge pieces of lobster meat with great southwestern flavors.
For entrees I had the Lmb tenderloin which was possibly the most tender piece of meat I ever had. Truly outstanding. Came with a nice orzo side. My wife had the Bronzinni and creamy rice. The flvor of the fish was excellent but it was riddled with bones. The menu said fillet or she would not have ordered it. When we mentioned it to the waiter he took it off the bill immediately. The other couple had the Paella and the Angloitti. Both dishes were excellent. For dessert we had the Rocky Road bread pudding. The was very flavorful but also very dense. I am not very experienced with bread pudding so not sure if this was proper or not.
We had 2 bottles of Argentinian Pinot Noir which was also excellent at $52 each.
The final bill was 280 without tip. It was an excellent dining experience and one I recommend highly.
