When we decided to celebrate our 10th anniversary with a long weekend at Sea Ranch, my one concern was whether we could find a suitable restaurant for our special dinner. Friends and family said St. Orres was a terrific option, and, boy, were they right! While it's not a formal restaurant (feel free to come in jeans), it has a very special feel. The room is gorgeous, and feels unique and cozy. For some reason, I found myself thinking of Middle Earth and hobbits...not that it was small (far from it...it soars!), but the wood and warmth was very nice. The food was delicious. Every entree is a flat price ($40-50) but that includes a hot or cold soup, salad, and your entree. Not ridiculous for what you get. My husband had fabulous scallops, and my lobster and prawns was equally wonderful. We also had a yummy small plate of stilton in phyllo (you could make a meal off the small plates). Dessert was terrific too...huckleberry bread pudding and ginger cake.
We liked it so much, and since there aren't a lot of other restaurants around (we couldn't find any others within a 10 mile drive that didn't get very mixed reviews), we returned the next night. I loved my vegetable strudel but my husband said his salmon was rather bland and dry. So, perhaps stay away from the salmon (although I assume they change preparations...his was just sauteed with vegetables). Also, while service was terrific on our first night, on our second night our waitress was not quite up to snuff...we had to pour and refill our own wine, etc. (although the young lady who was refilling water, clearing plates, etc was certainly on her job). Other than that, a big thumbs up for St. Orres...we heartily recommend for your next special occasion or just a good meal.
