Mussels Dijon – white wine, dijon mustard, garlic, butter, tomatoes & rosemary, served w/ grilled bread ($14.95) [The mussels were fresh and well-cooked but they were on the small side. Lynn would prefer it without mustard but Jeff liked it.]

– – – Mini beef wellington – w/ truffle demi-glaze ($14.95) [We both did not like their beef wellington. The meat was tough and not meaty enough. The crust wasn’t good as well.]

+++ Seared jumbo sea scallops – w/ lemon, white belgian chocolate risotto & grilled asparagus ($26.95) [These scallops were seared to perfection! The white chocolate risotto was weird but good at the same time.]

+++ Lobster ravioli – homemade ravioli filled w/ plump maine lobster in a lobster sherry cream sauce ($27.95) [This is on the heavy and creamy side but if you like lobster bisque, you’d like this. We thought that their ravioli wrapping could be thinner. However, we really enjoyed this overall.]

Grand marnier creme brulee – vanilla custard, grand marnier and crystallised sugar ($9.75) [This tasted like regular creme brulee with a hint of orange taste, presumably from the grand marnier.]

Tiramisu – espresso soaked biscotti layered with mascarpone cream and cocoa ($9.75) [We really liked the taste of their mascarpone cream but there wasn’t enough of it. You can tell from the picture that it’s mainly filled with biscotti.]

Cioccolato – warm molten lava cake with vanilla bean gelato and rasberry puree ($9.75) [We felt that this was closer to a moist sponge cake than a lava cake. We would definitely have liked it more if the interior was more molten.]
