Located in the Olde Marco Hotel, Bistro Soleil is anything but old. We were greeted and seated immediately upon arrival and being a Saturday evening, glad we had reservations. Our tour guide sat us at a nice cozy table and I say tour guide due to there are many rooms and you almost need a map. Anyhow, this was the first night for our server, Alex, and we let him know this was our first night there as well, so don’t be nervous. Alex went over the daily specials and took our drink orders, which arrived promptly. The menu names are in French, but the descriptions are in English. The first course choices were the tomato basil soup and county pate. The soup was extremely flavorful and presented much like a French onion crock as it had melted cheese over bread on top of the soup. The pate was served traditional style with crostini, shallot/fig marmalade and cornichons. The entrees included a house salad which came dressed with a black peppercorn and garlic vinaigrette, which had the consistency of a Caesar style dressing. We ordered one entree from the daily specials, which was the blue cheese and bacon topped filet. It was accompanied by potatoes and a vegetable mix that included broccoli, haricot vert, and red pepper slices. There was also a fantastic wine reduction under the filet. The second entree was the rack of lamb. If ordering this, please bring your appetite. When the plate of 8 lamb chops arrived, it looked great. The 8 chops were nestled over a lovely demi glacé and the same vegetable combination mentioned with the filet special. Mint jelly was offered and accepted. The unfinished portions were boxed as the entrees were good size and we did want room for dessert. The creme brûlée was prepared in the normal French style and was extreme good and a great ending to our meal. The key lime mousse made with yogurt and sour cream while topped with a raspberry purée and tasty doesn’t even begin to describe how good it was. We will be back.
