That was easily the most enjoyable dining experience i've had in a few months. There were 3 of us and we went with the 4 course $55 prix fixe option and shared everything, so i got a nice sample of the menu. For the appetizer, I had the smoked brook trout which was just melt in your mouth amazing. I had a quick taste of the blue prawns which was good, but it was the vegetable soup that stole the show on the appetizer. I'm not sure I can describe the flavor, but I may go back just to get a bowl of this for myself.

I was a bit disappointed that the roasted cauliflower that I had read about wasn't on the menu, but I couldn't have been happier with the lobster bolognese. It was so good that it was gone before i even had a chance to offer a taste to the others at my table. They forgave me and allowed me to try out the chickpea pancakes & short ribs anyway. The short ribs were just ok, but the chickpea pancakes were great...though neither was as good as the lobster bolognese. All three entrees were great, the scallops, sirloin & bass. If I had to pick a favorite it would probably be the bass, but the scallops were a close second. All three deserts were also fantastic. I can't remember details, but they were peanut butter, caramel & banana.

Service was flawless except for one minor detail at the end. Maybe I was out of line, but when they brought out 2 boxes of chocolate for a table of 3 I asked for another one after leaving a generous tip. They gave it to me, but I caught a nasty look that I thought was inappropriate. Other than that, it was such a pleasant dining experience and I can't wait to return.
