With 10 restaurants to choose from at Casino Rama Resort, my sister and I weren't sure where to have dinner before the Boyz 2 Men concert. After reviewing the website and menus for each, we finally decided on St. Germain's, a beautiful steak house.
St. Germain's is more than just a steak house though - it's "an unforgettable dining experience". Serving AAA Alberta beef for their Rib-eye, Tenderloin, Striploin and Porterhouse cuts, fresh seafood including salmon, sea bass and Atlantic lobster from the tank, and so much more - there is something for everyone at St. Germain's.
When we arrived for our dinner reservation we were brought to our table. From our table we could see the fresh lobster tank as well as part of the kitchen prep area. When we sat down, our lovely server showed us the iPad from which we could place our drink order. I love when I go to a restaurant that is forward-thinking using technology like this! We scrolled through the many pages of drink options - deciding upon a bottle of white. We got to chatting and drinking and laughing, as we reviewed the menu again for our entree choices. Having already reviewed the menu, we both knew what we wanted - but a second look-over never hurt nobody, right?
Neither my sister, nor I, ordered steak. At a steak house - can you believe it? LOL I opted for the Oven Roasted Rack of Lamb, substituting the original sides for smashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. I find, the thing with lamb is that it has to be cooked perfectly. I've had lamb quite a few times where it wasn't cooked properly and that ruins the dish. But the Oven Roasted Rack of Lamb from St. Germain's was amazing. I raved about it as I tweeted and posted pics on Instagram that night - but seriously, this may have been the best lamb I have ever had. And I live near the Danforth and Greek-Town...so think about that! I ordered mine medium-well, as I do not like it bloody or anything like that - and they brought it out with a warm pink center. Perfect. Seasoned perfectly and served on the bone - the lamb practically melted in my mouth.
I'm drooling as I type.
My sister decided to order the Atlantic Lobster Tails with Herb Roasted Red Potatoe, Asparagus, Carrots and Drawn Butter. Now, I have to be honest here. I had only tried lobster once or twice prior to heading up to Casino Rama Resort and having dinner at St. Germain's. My sister however - is a lobster aficionado! LOL She even makes a great lobster at home herself. So I knew when she ordered it - she would be able to provide an honest opinion. And...well, she loved it! I even tried a couple bites and found it to be delicious as well. Not chewy, cooked properly and as you can tell by the above pictures - the lobster tails were HUGE! St. Germain's has a lobster tank in the restaurant that they take the lobsters from on order, so you know it's fresh.
We were going to order the Warm Cinnamon Melt dessert however we were STUFFED after our amazing entrees. So, we decide to finish our wine and come back after the concert. However - that didn't work out because we got a little distracted making new friends oh, and meeting some members of Boyz 2 Men. More about that in the next post though! LOL
Dinner at St. Germain's was absolutely wonderful and I'm still drooling thinking of that lamb! I'm already trying to plan another trip up to Casino Rama Resort just so that I can go back to St. Germain's because dinner really was that good!
Maybe I'll try a steak next time...
Disclaimer: Dinner was complimentary, however - as per usual my views are entirely my own and that really was the best lamb I have ever had. *drools*
