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!
