We had an incredible dining experience at this upscale restaurant that was done just right. Though small and quaint, this hidden gem exceeded all expectations. We shared several items off the menu and everything was simply amazing, with the mushrooms being the standout dish. While the agnolotti in the first course was good, it could have used a touch of acid or red pepper to brighten it up. However, the red snapper in the second course stole the show, perfectly paired with a celery root puree.
The fillet of beef in the third course was cooked to the perfect mid-rare and was so tender that it could be cut with a butter knife (which was, oddly enough, provided), though it could have used a touch more salt. The fish spread was so spectacular that I could have eaten the entire plate on my own.
Our server, Kurt, was fantastic and made the dining experience even better.
