Vibrato Grill & Jazz (short review)

jcwla | Mar 15, 2004 06:51 PM

Went last Wednesday, arrived on time for 7:15 res'n.
Seated in semicircle of tables near stage; hostess graciously moved table around for us so we could both face out toward the stage. Menu is surprisingly large -- emphasis really is on the "grill" as much as the "jazz."

Waiter (cute) was attentive and helpful. Friend started with roasted beet salad, which she liked, I with the whole-leaf Caesar with paremsan and dressing on the side. Fun to hand-"grate" the parmesan into the individual leaves. Good fresh lettuce.

Friend had roasted chicken which was bursting out of the skin with fullness of flavor. Really huge dish for $26, enough for seconds and thirds. I had the halibut with sweet pea puree, which was a bit short on flavor but went down easily enough.

Crowd is highly eclectic -- literally teens up to elderly -- with a lot of couples. Music was nice -- I love soft jazz -- and the pace quickened a bit throughout the evening. We took a lovely walk around the shopping center afterward and pronounced the place a hit. We'd gladly come back and think several other areas could use a joint like this.
