We managed to find a spot for 5:00pm! WOOHOO !
Bread – I was not impressed as I feel if you are going to serve bread as a “starter”, it should be as good as what’s to come. So yes…I was pretty choked that this did not taste as fresh, and the butter was just a stick. How do you spread stick butter on cold bread?!
Thankfully – the soup was delicious…versus….
Jeff’s salad. LOL. He was regretful in not choosing my delicious woodland mushroom soup.
Okay…this is the most succulent duck I have ever had in Vancouver. (Maybe not in the whole world…but for sure in Vancouver) Although I hate lentils, I didn’t mind it so much with the duck. The skin was so flavourful and the meat is soooo juicy!
Again, not impressed with Jeff’s choice of dish. Haha!
We added a mushroom risotto and it was phenomenal. I could really taste the mushrooms, wine, and cheese. A lot of restaurants make risottos that either hasn’t cooked their rice enough, or pack it with loads of cheese which overpowers the flavour!
We both ordered the apple/raspberry crumble. AMAZING. I haven’t had such a good crumble in a longggg time. I think the last one I had that was really good was in Seattle somewhere.
Final verdict? One of the better dine out menu’s I ever had! Really enjoyed this and am planning to come back in the future for some French dining even after the dine out promotion is over. :) My mother in law likes French food so I’ll be sure to bring her here in the future!
