A friend on a local vegan network suggested this place. I took my meat eating but health conscious date here.
It looks really swanky and posh from the outside and that's nice. It's in a romantic little area of town so that added something nice. The inside is simple decor but elegant.
They have a really nice wine menu and the staff is actually well versed in wine selection. That's always a plus for me.
The menu was BAD for a vegan. While most of the food is veg, they had almost nothing vegan. This pissed me off. I actually called them in advance to ask about vegan options and they said they had plenty.
This proved to be embarassing for me. I try not to talk about my veganism too much because it can sometimes get in the way. So, the lack of vegan options ruined the first half of my date.
Anyway, we got over that. My date had some lovely veggie options. Salad and quesadilla. The Office did well with making these simple items over the top tasty, so my date says.
I settled on samosas and a plater of fries, pretty much the only two vegan things on the menu. I tried to have other things made vegan and while they tried to accomodate me, they weren't able to.
The other BIG downer was that they don't have a seperate party room so their was a bachelorette party happening at the table right next to us. This killed our intimacy.
I'm sure this is a great place of veg people and people who like steak but vegans beware!
great staff, vine menu, elegant and cheap food
NO VEGAN OPTIONS, noisy, cold inside the restauran
