Picture fine dining food in a beautiful atmosphere and getting diner service.

While this was once a member's only restaurant, it has been open to the public for several years. As we've gone from members to non, we've watched the design, staff and management in the restaurant change through the years.

The restaurant is beautifully designed. Whether you are dining for brunch or dinner, the room is open and inviting and tastefully decorated. Moving the host stand into the lounge area was a smart move - you don't feel threatened when you walk up the stairs anymore. When we checked in with the hostess, she seemed concerned that our table wouldn't be ready, which it wasn't, but when we entered the dining room there were several tables open.

When we were greeted by our server, she indicated that she would be right back and someone would be over "to water the table." When she returned, we ordered a bottle of wine ($120) and the deviled egg appetizer. The appetizer was delivered before the wine and when she presented the wine asked "is this the right one?" The server finally "watered the table" as no one else had. The dining room wasn't too busy, but we watched as she delivered the wrong food to a table that had just ordered seconds before.

The menu offers a great variety of items from sandwiches to entrees, so dining with children isn't a problem. When asked what she recommended, she clearly recited what she had been trained by the chef. We opted for the Sous Vide Seabass and Short Rib Bolognese with a side of the seasonal vegetable, which was squash. The Seabass and squash were delicious. Perfectly prepared. While the bolognese was good, it wasn't a true bolognese lacking vegetables such as onions, celery and carrots.

The total for two including the wine was $195.

The dining area for events is pretty with a beautiful view of the golf course.They sat the bridal party in front of the Windows which made it difficult to see them.The food was served quickly. I only liked the mashed potatoes.The green beans were to hard ,the chicken breast to spicy.I don't know what they paid but there wasn't much food.

Enjoyed Easter Bruch at this restaurant - which is part of the River Club Golf Club. Many choices, nice decorations for the occasion; special children's selections. Pricey however - $40/ adults.
