Gilbertie's Place

Early dinner for the three of us. We had had a good meal at Gilbertie's Place before so thought we would try it again tonight. There was a private party in the bar and we ended up in the dining room which was just about deserted. The evening specials looked good and Mahi Mahi [$20] was the choice [and a good one] for one of the party. The lemon sauce was very fresh and the dish was served with rice. The other entrée was Chicken Parm [$17] and looked good in a usual preparation with spaghettini. This was preceded by a very good crock of French Seven Onion Soup [$5]. This was even better than the onion soup two nights before. I started with the onion soup also and then had an appetizer for main course [my make-believe diet]. The app was a special for the night: Seafood Stuffed Portabella Mushroom [$9]. This was the hit of the night. A large amount of seafood on a balsamic marinated portabella grilled to a lovely goodness. I added a House Salad [$5] with a very good house balsamic vinaigrette dressing. There was a Cannoli to go which didn't make it to the bill!

blognote: The private party made the service suffer a little when it came to drinks and we had to ask for bread [which turned out to be very fresh rolls] and glad we did.
