Sloppy food and service. Went to the Gage for dinner but really didn't enjoy it. Started out with pretzels and cheese dip. The pretzels were dense and the cheese dip was grainy. Not appetizing. We should have left at this point. I ordered the Coconut curry. Waiter raved about it and description had all the right ingredients. What came out was a hot mess. Basically a giant bowl of coconut cream soup. The chicken, vegetables, and rice were absolutely smothered in the cream with no hope to escape. It was impossible to taste anything but cream. Looking around did not give me reason to believe I was missing anything. The poutine at the table next to mine looked similarly drenched. No shape, no texture, just mess. The wedge salads that passed by looked like no more than mounds of sauce.
Ordered a scotch egg and the venison burger while visiting on a work trip. Both were very good, the burger had peppers on it which gave it some nice heat. Fries were alright but nothing special. I also ordered an old fashioned which hit the spot. It was busy at 7 on a Wednesday night, but cleared out relatively quickly. I'd love to stop back, there were a bunch of other things on the menu that sounded very good.
I had a really nice experience at The Gage with friends last weekend. It's fancier than I'm used to but it seemed warm and non-intimidating. Our server, Wes, was phenomenal with our party of 10. He was patient and kind and informative and fun. The food was great, well-prepared with interesting twists and ingredients and nicely presented.
