Cape Cod Harwich We Tried L'Alouette Last Night

I liked it pretty well, but my DC wasn't quite as happy. The interior is not sophisticated, but is trying to be special. It's the kind of space that seems 200% nicer if the room is full, but might be sad if the room isn't full. We asked to sit in the larger room which was more crowded. Our waitress was very good, service was attentive but not hovering. Food -- bread on the table was good. I had crab cake appetizer (a special) with cucumber salad. Really good, not oily like so many crab cakes, but light and home-made tasting. DC had the onion soup and pronounced it very good, with a very beefy broth and lots of cheese. My main course was the rack of lamb (cut into lamb chops) with haricot verts and a chopped nut topping. It was very good, just a bit salty. Very nice quality lamb. My DC ordered the roast chicken, and this was the disappointment. Arrived tepid, and was very salty. We decided to try the choclate mousse. Probably the best mousse either of us ever had. I didn't look at the wine list very long, but had a decent Cotes du Rhone with the lamb, this was ordered by the glass. I'd give it a "B" overall.

    Thanks so much for the review. we used to dine here often under the previous management. Mom went lafter and did not love it. I should give it a go sometime to see for myself.
