The Caesar salad was adequate, although the romaine was a bit white. I prefer the leafier portion. I ordered the lamb chops medium, which were served with vegetables and potato. They were perfectly seasoned, portioned, and cooked. I've had great meat before, but there was something about the portion size and flavor that hit me just right.
My friend ordered the Atlantic salmon steak and was equally satisfied with his choice. Perhaps the only complaint in the evening was our overly friendly, if not a bit absent, waiter. He introduced himself, and after a brief conversation and some quick witted jokes, was only seen when food was in his hands. There was no check up, no visits to refill drinks, etc. We had to flag down a woman who was waiting other tables to "pass a message along" to our guy. With 23 years in the books as a restaurant, you'd figure the basics would be ironed out.
Would I recommend it? Yes. Just make sure that [name removed to protect identity] isn't working - bon apetit!
