Re: “Amuse

Sat nite 9/1, we called for reservations and were told that if we arrived at 6:15, we could be seated right away, but if it was closer to 6:30 we would have to wait. Arrived at 6:20 and the restaurant was empty!! A few people were seated at the bar, but no one at tables. We had a chuckle over that. Hostess was very earnest, if a little unpolished. She tried to fob "sparkling water" on us ("Try it, it's so much FUN!!), but got only one sucker. (Lisa was appalled later when our bill revealed that she had shelled out $4 for her "special water", while the rest of us drank perfectly good H2O from the tap for free.) Our server, Dani, was lovely, very personable and knowledgeable about food and wine pairings. Food came out quickly, which was great. The two boys ordered stuffed pork tenderloin and seemed pleased with their selections. Lisa ordered the scallop skewers (4 per order), which arrived with completely superfluous skewers (they were removed right away and scallops eaten w/fork). The dish was absolutely sizzling, steam pouring off, and yet oddly the scallops were a little raw in the center; perhaps because they were so enormous they just didn't get cooked through. I had heard that they made their pasta in-house, and so ordered the fettucini w/wild mushrooms and cream sauce. Delicious (fresh pasta is always so much better), although a little soft, not perfectly al dente. Wine pairings were yummy -- I had a refreshing, fruity, very chilly Italian pinot gris w/my pasta; Lisa & hubby had a McKenzie cab that was very tasty. Ambiance note: seated at the 2-top next to us was a couple celebrating 57 yrs of marriage; they must have been in their 70's. Their table was strewn with rose petals; don't know who was responsible for that, but it was a lovely touch. We will go back but will be careful ordering because of the somewhat mixed success foodwise. Ambiance: 4 (out of 5) Service: 4-1/2 (1/2 off for stupid water) Food: 3 Price: most tapas $7-8; most entrees $10+; very reasonable for portion size
