To celebrate my parents' 40th anniversary, I found this restaurant on OpenRice as it offers fine dining with live band. I checked out the menu on their website beforehand and their set dinner ($398 and $598) looked quite attractive. On arrival we all decided to go for the sets (actually we were never offered the a la carte menu). The wine list was huge and in the interest of time I asked to manager to choose a bottle of red for us, and he recommned the Chianti (2011) which was quite easy for ev
Traditional antipasto with Parma ham
Was expecting different kinds of antipasto, but it turned out to be just cataloupe. An ok dish.
Can't remmeber the name of the sauce, but I liked the sauce more than the scallop itself. The scallops was quite bland and I could not taste its freshness.
Potato soup with truffle scented, poached quail egg and chicken liver pâté bruschetta
The soup was quite rich and tasty and the quail egg melted perfectly in the mouth. Quite an innovative dish!
This was from the more expensive set but it was quite disappointing. The oyster tasted fishy and the soup was too watery.
Baked home-made tagliolini with pancetta and béchamel sauce
This small pasta dish was cooked perfectly (al dente) with simple and tasty white sauce.
Home-made tonnarelli with Sicilian red shrimp and date tomatoes
The shrimp was quite alright (seemed fresh compared to some reviews before), but the highlight for me was the pasta. The home-made tonnarelli had a texture similar to Asian noodles. It was chewy and blended well with the sweet tomato sacue.
Grilled US prime beef rib eye
Asked for medium and it turned out just right. The meat was jucy and tender.
Almond crusted lamb loin stuffed with duck liver and black truffle sauce
Chose this dish (from the more expensive set) upon recommendation of the manager (supposed to be their signature dish), but it was not as great as expected. The lamb was quite tough and bland, although everything else on the dish (especially the sauce and the duck liver) was good.
Dessert & Tea/Coffee
Dessert was a chocolate cake which was rich without being too sweet. Perfect with the complimentary coffee/tea.
題外話/補充資料： Throughout the whole dinner we were entertained by the live band who walked around tables to sing requested/ unrequested songs. During dessert time they came around to sing a few songs for my parents. Good place for celebratory dinners!(以上食評乃用戶個人意見 , 並不代表OpenRice之觀點。)
