Let’s Dine

Advertisements

Before Carona Virus was a thing we use to go out all the time. Since our recent move we’ve experienced a lot of food while exploring Atlanta. We love a good food experience; the atmosphere, the camaraderie, the spark it gives when good quality time out is spent.

Since VSG I haven’t been able to indulge as heavily as I use to. But, I enjoy the experience so much more because I pace myself when I’m eating. Its satisfying to be able to know when you feel full and complete even when you’re enjoying time out. I focus more when I eat so I don’t feel a need to finish my entire meal just because its in front of me.

Most of the time we leave with leftovers, I can never finish my food. The kids definitely don’t mind that part. Every new food adventure is not always a good one and I will be mentioning those too. Like I said I’m still a foodie even after VSG (With modifications of course)

The Vineyard

Lake Mary, FL

Our Menu Selections:

Hummus Trio, Artichoke Spinach Rolls, Wild Caught Salmon, Bacon Gouda Meatloaf, Dan’s Margarita

Talk about good! We experienced the Vineyard with one of our couple friends in the Orlando Area. The food here was spectacular. Management sat us in this really nice booth that had curtains for privacy because we had an infant with us. That made us feel great because they had good safety precautions for Covid. There was a live guitar player/singer giving smooth tunes. It was a really nice vibe. The food took no time coming out and the portion sizes were great for the money. The staff was extremely helpful with offering suggestions and making sure we had everything we needed.

The owner of the restaurant came over and talked with us for a bit. He was very passionate about the quality of service he was offering. The atmosphere was a very good, elegant, and comforting one. I would definitely recommend stopping by if you are ever in town.

The Capital Grille

Atlanta, GA – Dunwoody

Our menu selections:

Lobster and Crab Cakes, Seared Tenderloin with Butter Poached Lobster Tails (Med. Well), Double Cut Lamb Rib Chops (4) (Med. Well), Grilled Asparagus, Lobster Mac ‘N’ Cheese, Creamed Spinach, Porcini Rubbed Bone-In Ribeye with 15-Year Aged Balsamic (Well Done), In Fashion Bourbon, The Bohemian Cocktail

The Capital Grille has been by far one of the best restaurant experiences yet. From the moment you walk in the door it is exceptional. The intimate ambience is warming and inviting. The class of the staff was amazing upon entry. Our waiter even joined in conversation for a bit.

We were initially given a private room for our reservation due to our party size. But, we had some people cancel last minute. The booth they gave us made for better conversation because we are all around 1 table. Nothing but great vibes.

The food quality was everything! The lamb chops and tenderloins were so juicy and tender. The lobster and crab cake was a decent size definitely can be a meal by itself for a bariatric patient with leftovers. I wasn’t to hot about the balsamic ribeye, I feel like it was a very overbearing flavor. It was way too much for me. The asparagus was grilled to perfection with the perfect crunch. I’m usually skeptical with steamed and grilled veggies because they are always so soft . The Mac and Cheese was totally worth it. They are not lying when they say table sized portion. Big compliments to the chefs behind the scenes.

The drinks were perfect, they went great with the food selections.

Overall we would definitely recommend The Capital Grille for a classy night out on the town. Regardless if you’re hanging out with friends and family or date night for 2. It is on the pricey end but worth every penny. Excellent, Excellent, Experience.
