The service was impeccable. Our starter -- croquetas -- was unique and very, very tasty. Our Caesar salads were terrific -- whole hearts of romaine leaves; fresh, shaved Parmesan; whole anchovy filets; yummy, creamy dressing. The wine recommended by our server -- a California pinot noir -- was exceptional and one of the least expensive on the small but well-chosen wine list. The sides that accompanied our mains were really, really good, especially the broccoli. The proteins, however, should have been better. I had the pheasant in a cream sauce with wild mushrooms. My companion had a steak au poivre. Both were okay, but just okay. The sauces lacked zing and zing was needed to make this a truly exceptional meal.
