Don't Come for the Ambiance 12/17/2006

I am actually embarrassed to be reviewing (giving a 4 star) to a restaurant that has such terrible decor and layout, but the one thing that will tell you is that the food is that DARN GOOD. Bring your Gold or Platinum card, because the meal and beverages will set you back a good deal. Our party of 6 came out to about $200 per person. The cheese course was a highlight (that you should expect from Terrance Brennan) and the choice of game was nice and wide for any hunter/fan of hunted food. Buckshot may be seen in some entrées. My recommendations: Chestnut soup Venison Wild Hare Pheasant Apple tart of any kind The Le Reve from Domaine Carneros is very reasonably priced, fyi. I do not recommend the lobster appetizer - very small portion and the lobster itself gets lost in the other flavors it is mixed with in the dish. The decor is terrible (imagine eating a gourmet meal in the same hotel restaurant that you ate your $9.95 breakfast buffet) and one must walk through the service area to go down stairs to (usually) a line waiting for the bathroom. Avoid the toilets and enjoy the food and the company you bring! more
