My wife and I had dinner here about 10 years and loved the experience. We moved away, but we are here visiting and decided to try it again. I had to laugh when I made a reservation earlier in the week when the person said no problem for a table at 6, but we had to be out by 8 for another party. Good to his word he reminded us of the time limit when we ordered. I thought it was kind of funny, Swiss efficiency and all.\r
My wife ordered a bottle of still water which tasted a little flat (no pun intended) and when she asked for a sweeter wine, the waiter recommended one of the wine's of the month, a sweet German number. When he brought it out, it was one of those cheap German table wines with the screw cap; hilarious! (no, he didn't offer to let me smell the metal cap) My wife had a cheese/potato app she loved and I had a crab salad. The greens on top needed salt, but were fresh and the crab meat was from a package, (too soft) but well seasoned. Next my wife had the goat cheese salad which turned out to be blue goat chesse. She sent it back and got a pear salad she liked. I had the seafood soup which was good, but in another case of the chef not tasting the food, it was too salty and the some of the seafood was cooked too long.\r
My wife had the steak, which she loved and I had the swiss/german sausage plate, which I enjoyed. However, the bratwurst (I think) needed a little something. The desert was divine, a strawberry tower, and the coffee was excellent as well.\r
The service was adequate, but the waiter was too busy and harried to be quietly efficient, like you would expect for a $200 meal. The ambiance was nice, but the party of 8 next to us with the very loud joke-telling host was out of place for a small romantic place. The waiter was too busy to bring us our bill and ask about our experience and the other waitress did it. It struck us as kind of corporate.\r
Overall, this is a nice place, with above average food, but managment has become complacent. Shame.
Pros: Intimate setting, interesting dishes, location
Cons: Average service, average food, parking
