Very good service, excellent food with surprising combinations. Great to get to meet the chef and see the kitchen. One of the best restaurants i had the pleasure visiting!
At first, I was a little skeptical because I wasn't quite sure what Gordon Ramsay was doing with a restaurant in Bordeaux, but I guess he helped design the menu. In addition, he's the source of this famous silver lobster press that the restaurant is named after (only 6 exist in the world). Normally, I would do the tasting menu, but the signature lobster dish using the pressoir de argent was a la carte, so we ordered a la carte. They had a good number of wines by the glass, which was a little more unusual than at some of the other higher end places, so we took advantage of this to try more by the glass. They ranged from €18-160, but most were in the €20-50 range. Wines we tried - - NV Bereche et Fils Brut reserve to start - 2000 Saint Julien from Sarget de Gruaud Larose - 2011 Volnay from Domaine Jean Marc Boillot - our favorite from the night - 2014 St. Joseph Amuses: - Salmon and caviar - Lobster and apple tart (because I don't like foie gras) - Foie gras tart - the standard one - Warm pata negra wrapped around cream cheese Bread service: 4 to choose from. I went with the baguette (my favorite), the focaccia (not like a traditional Ligurian focaccia), and one made with beer. Next amuse: Fresh goat cheese with organic vegetables and croutons - this was basically a salad course. The vegetables were super fresh/ Starters: - Confit organic egg: a soft cooked runny egg with cep, ham, pork belly, smoked chestnuts, and an onion velouté. This was great for dipping using the baguette - Saint-Jean-de-Luz spider crab: with avocado, pomelo, coriander, radishes and citrus dressing. The avocado slices were arranged really beautifully and required some major knife skills. This was a much lighter starter Mains: - Lobster: from the 'press' cooked with lemon grass, sweetcorn, zucchini. It's wheeled over on a cart, and the lobster is in a stone pot still steaming. The shells, lemongrass, and some other herbs get pressed to create the lobster jus for the sauce. Then they reduce the sauce tableside, and it has really intense lobster flavor.  The lobster tail and claw are then taken out of the shell and plated for you, with the sauce poured on top. After, they also bring a lobster consommé with verbena. As it infused more, it had almost a bit of Tom yum flavor. This was a nice clean broth to offset the richness of the lobster dish - Roasted veal, cep filled macaronis, artichoke, garlic and parsley. This is your more traditional dish with an intense meat jus reduction. We then shared 1 portion of cheese from the cart, though the portion was very generous. We recognized many of the cheeses and actually had a good discussion with our server about the cheeses.  There were maybe 20-25 cheeses to choose from. At the end, they brought us a special dessert since we were celebrating our honeymoon. Mignardaises - the presentation of these tied in with the amuses, which was a nice way to round out the service - Coffee ice cream in white chocolate on a lollipop stick - Tarte Tatin - Mango tart with passion fruit When we left, they also gave us a box of madelines to take home, which was a nice final touch. Though the prices on the a la carte menu are on the higher side, you get so much other stuff that comes with the meal and experience. And remember that prices include tax and gratuity (though we added some additional gratuity for the generous cheese course). It's a more traditional old school feel with jackets required and a more formal dining room, but we found the staff to be unpretentious. It's definitely different from the places we typically dine at, but it was a great dining experience and is worth trying if you're looking for a nice dinner in Bordeaux.
We had an amazing dinner last evening. Highlights were definitely the spider crab appetizer, the roast veal entree, all of the wines, and what was probably the most impressively attentive service I have ever enjoyed... Anywhere. Bravo!
