Happy Gilmore (getting there) – Peter Gilmore's restaurant reminds me of a place that just opened. Overall, the food is excellent but it's some of the little things that need work. First, the portions are inconsistent. In the traditional French style, they should be small. The wait staff is inconsistent as well. Some are knowledgeable, attentive and polite. Others are inattentive and brash. Also, the lighting and music selection could be toned down to create a better ambiance.
Although it can be difficult getting a reservation, being a BYOB makes this restaurant attractive. One of waiters has a keen eye for good wine and supplies the appropriate glasses. The decor is tastefully done.
Overall, Gilmore's has a great foundation with alot of potential. I'll try it again in a few months to see if there is any improvement.
Skip the appetizer and salad – While I have no complaints with the service the food left something to be desired. The entree was masterful but the "intermezzo" (?) salad was blech, the appetizer felt straight out of some average Asian fusion place and the dessert was so so. Check Siri's Thai for desserts that are way above so so and compare with this place. To be fair I must say that in order to give the restaurant its due it has to be visited at least two or three times and I've only been there once. Nevertheless the difference between great and above average restaurants is that the former are consistently great whereas the latter's performance varies. The appetizer and dessert I had fall into the latter category. I had no trouble getting reservations for a weekday night with a few days notice.
10 – great :) when family comes from out of town always bring them there.
