Dinner @ Edward Levesque's Kitchen

My husband took me here on Saturday night for my birthday dinner. I have to say that it was a wonderful experience! Even though we didn't call ahead for reservations, we were able to get a seat. As soon as we were seated, a plate of pita triangles with the best hummus ever and a sweet potato dip was placed on our table. For starters, hubby had the lentil soup with vegetables, and I ordered the smoked trout over challah, with mixed greens and slivered beets. Oh my god, was my dish ever fabulous! I'm one who's kinda picky over my food (due to allergies), but I totally cleaned the plate. For our mains, I ordered the prosciutto encrusted halibut with grilled fennel and leeks with fingerling potatoes. Hubby had the ribeye steak served over mashed potatoes with whole mushrooms. My halibut was perfectly cooked, and the fennel was delicious. There was a bit too much prosciutto, but I think it was needed to get the halibut perfect like that. Hubby had asked for his steak medium rare but it came medium instead. Despite that, he said it was very good and the mashed potatoes were to die for. Dessert was an order of tiramisu for me, and apple crumble with cinnamon ice cream for him. The tiramisu was good, I did eat it all, but I think it was a bit heavy for the dinner that I had just had. Next time, I will order the apple crumble because the taste that I had of it was super. We had two glasses of wine each with dinner - mine a sauvignon blanc from France, and hubby's a merlot from Chile, which we both enjoyed respectively. As well, we had coffees with dessert.
As more diners came in, the service progressively got neglectful, but at least our waitress was of good humour and very helpful with the menu/wine list. I only wished she'd have looked our way more often. Over all, a definite good experience. The final bill was just less than $150 incl. tax & tip. Considering what we all had, quite reasonable in my opinion. Can't wait to go again; am eager to try their brunch.
