Dinner in the City: The House

Dinner in the City: The House

{{ 4.0/5.0 }} Overall, definitely recommendable!!

Atmosphere:
Service has been inattentive at times, my attempt to flag down a server for salt and a drink refill once took so long that my food had completely cooled…quite a small space for such a popular restaurant, tables were so close together that it was as if you’re sitting in your school cafeteria…other than that the ambiance is good….

Food:

Scallops, The House

Seared Scallops– carmelized scallops w/a light mango citrus sauce, on special that night, fresh and tender, my only complaint would be that it came with 3 scallops which seemed a bit awkward given most people come to this type of restaurant in pairs hoping to share with their companion…

Wasabi house noodles with angus flatiron steak– so daddy taught me never to order noodles at a nice restaurant, but the raving reviews and promise of steak were enticing enough to ignore this vital life lesson….as expected this was a very flavorful dish with a dash of Wasabi that was not too overpowering..steak was not bad, could tell that it was not the main focus of the dish, and the noodles were a bit too thick for my taste, great ‘fusion’ style dish to try but I think I’ll take dad’s advice next time…

**Grilled Sea Bass with Garlic Ginger Soy– now this was by far the highlight of the meal, cooked to a perfect temperature (make sure to eat quickly before it cools) for melt-in-your mouth deliciousness, side dishes of garlic noodles and snap-peas also paired well with the fish, would come back for this solely to re-order…

Coconut Creme Brulee with the Passion Fruit Puree– portion size was good, creme brulee itself was not bad, the temperature seemed a little off for me and I’ve had better, only a slight undertone of coconut yet a distinct sour passion fruit taste, which was nice….
