The restaurant is in an old two-story home that was decorated with twinkly lights outside. Inside there were lots of antique mirrors and sconces on the walls. There was a fairly large main area and several smaller areas off the main one which smaller groups of people could have some privacy in. We sat beside a window overlooking the garden, although it was winter and snow-covered.
We were met at the entrance and shown where we could hang up our coats and escorted to our table by a very friendly maitre d', who had no trouble when we mentioned our voucher.
I ordered from the table d'hôte. The cream of tomato soup was delicious. There was a spinach brioche and a tasty salad. The main course was a heavenly lamb tenderloin in a maple sauce. My husband had a Caesar salad and a nicely cooked steak. The teenage girls we had with us ordered tagliatelle. I suggested they split one, but they each wanted one to themselves and ended up eating about half. Nevertheless they had room for a chocolate bombe, which was like an ice cream cake with a brownie base.
We enjoyed great service and great food and have learned that the name may not be the best indicator of the appeal of the restaurant.
