We had great food, the waiter was super nice. A little pricey but food was great, big portions. I had scallops and Shrimp scampi, yummy, husband had a pork dinner, don't remember the name but so good... We will be going back.
When my son picked the restaurant and I saw it from the outside I was concerned. But what a surprise once we went through the doors! Cute, Paris chic and the food? OMG is all I can say. Melt in your mouth; we tried things we've never tried before along with favorites (like scallops, shrimp, steak). We left room for dessert and were also wow'd by the Genovese Cake, so much so, hubby ordered one after tasting mine! A true gem and a must try!
So happy we found this restaurant. It's definitely a diamond amongst the rough. It's an unobtrusive unit in a strip mall but the inside offers a warm welcome and inviting atmosphere. It's menu offers an eclectic selection not typical of other local places. The ingredients seemed fresh and the chef obviously has some great skills. Presentation was wonderful and the flavors bold. One of the better wine selections as well. I wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant. It's a lot closer to Palm Coast than Daytona and much better than anything you'll find there anyway.
Having an eclectic menu (Italian, Asian, Caribbean and throw in a little steakhouse) is one of the most difficult things to do, but this chef seems to do it with ease. We visited here for the first time Thursday evening. We were greeted and seated immediately. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable.
They immediately took our drink order and presented us with what appeared to be bruschetta and a dipping sauce that I thought was olive oil, but turned out to be clarified butter with a hint of honey (yes, honey!) and parsley and crushed red pepper. Sounds strange, but when I tasted it, I knew we were in for an enjoyable evening.
After drinks, we started with a shared plate of calamari which is delicately breaded and served with a plum sauce and asian Sriracha (chili) sauce. Calamari is one of those dishes that if you cook it for even a moment too long, it's going to be tough, but this was done perfectly and paired with the plum/Sriracha sauces, was one of the best I've had.
I ordered Veal Saltimbocca with buttered gnocchi which was excellent and my wife ordered the Chilean Sea Bass which comes with a Thai coconut curry sauce. The fish was cooked melt-in-your-mouth perfect and the sauce was exquisite.
My only regret for this evening was that we didn't save room for dessert, but we'll definitely be back and maybe next time we can try the interesting dessert menu.
This place is awesome! We went last weekend and it was a real treat. Food was excellent especially the eggplant dish that I had. Also a really place for the wine buffs out there. Atmosphere is cool and cozy and servers were terrific. I highly recommend and worth the drive from Palm Coast.
One of our favorite restaurants. However, on this visit the service was not as usual. We had two waitresses - one didn't seem to know what the other was doing. One took our drink order, then another came to say she would be our waitress. When our food was ready to be delivered our bread had not arrived, which one of them had said would be out shortly. One of us was missing a napkin; the other a fork. The meals are always good. When we ordered dessert and coffee, we were not given either cream or sugar. When our checks arrived they were mixed up so had to be sent back twice. Overall, very poor service. Two waitresses didn't seem to know who was supposed to be looking after the table. Two of us had Osso Bucco; 3 beef tenderloin and one special. The special was not as explained.
Favorite Dish? There are too many to mention. Love this place. Chef Ravin keeps you cravin! I encourage everyone to stop by and enjoy what this place has to offer. The menu is awesome. This is our local "Cheers" experience. Get to know the Chef and set up a special dinner by requesting him to make something that fits your taste. I dine at PBG frequently.
One of the best dining experiences of all time. We enjoyed three appetizers that were not on the menu: Oysters Rockafeller, Tex-Mex Nachos, Fried Portabello Mushrooms, all we're wonderful $8 each. We ordered two bottles of red wine $22 each. We shared a wedge salad and a bowl of lobster bisque .....great! Next, we had the best meals: Osso Bucco, Curry Sea Bass, Fresh Mahi, and Shrimo and Andoullie Sausage. The flavors were bursting in our mouths! Chef Ravin stopped by our table, where we gave him a cash tip, because the food was out of this world. Our waitress, Shellie, had only been there a week, but was fun and lively, and made our dining experience the best ever. We are excited to return!
