I've been to Lock 50 twice. I was telling my husband before we arrived that I remember the last time we went the waitress brought me a card the staff signed because it was my birthday. I remember thinking that it was such a nice touch. Certainly not something you see everyday and not something I'd miss but it was a really nice touch.
Our second visit didn't disappoint either!
When we arrived, we were given the option to sit inside or out on their patio. I usually don't pick outside when eating especially for dinner at almost 8pm but I did see that they had live music out there so we decided we would go outside. The music was the perfect background noise to our dinner. We were still able to talk comfortably and the musician was very talented.
Lock 50 had outdoor heaters that were awesome. They provided the perfect amount of heat for us to be able to enjoy being outside. It did get a bit chilly as we were still eating after 9pm but they had dropped off a blanket on my chair in the event that I got cold. That was another very nice touch that I was blown away by. I did use the blanket ... it was very thoughtful of them.
The menu had changed since the last time we had been there so we were having a tough time trying to decide what we wanted. My husband asked about the chef's tasting and we were told that the chef prepares 5 or 7 courses - you don't pick the food, the chef does. We decided to try it as the last time we visited we loved every dish we ordered so we felt comfortable and thought it was a fun idea.
The chef's tasting was amazing. Every dish that came out was better than the other! I don't remember the exact details but the first dish was beets and goat cheese. Then shrimp and rice. The next course was pork belly, followed by steak and potatoes. Finally, a almond tart on ricotta cheese. Of course, it was more elaborate than I just explained but it was an exceptional experience. The food was delicious. Service was also amazing ❤️
