This is not just a meal: it is an experience!!! As you pull up the long driveway (through gates marked "private"), the valet/butler is waiting for you at the front door of Blantyre. He escorts you into the building where you are warmly welcomed by various staff members, asked to pick a room to sit in to have cocktails and a few appetizers. After cocktails, we were taken to a private dining room as my friends were celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary and the staff set us up in a special room. The room was surrounded by windows which let in a cool breeze and the scent of the fragrant gardens outdoors. The floral centerpiece on the table was gorgeous: white roses, white lilacs, white hydrangeas. We were told Blantyre has its own florist who creates these centerpieces every day.
The meal was excellent: from the cold cucumber dill salmon soup to the grey sole, to an incredible dessert made with a splash of Jameson's whiskey over homemade ice cream: magnificent!!
After dessert, we were shown to the Music Room where a piano played performed as we were served cappuccino's and cookies. We wandered onto the patio where delicious gold foil wrapped chocolates were piled on a plate.
The grounds are beautiful, the service professional and warm. We had a wonderful time. The price fixed dinner is $125 per person and our bill came to over $750 for four people with drinks and a $67 bottle of wine. Well worth it. We will return.
