The Hill!

Hello! And happy Valentines Day and winter break to everyone. For Valentines Day dinner I took my girlfriend to The Hill Chop House & Seafood and got the Valentines Day's special, here's how it went:

For our first dish we had chocolate covered strawberries... In a drink. We were given both elevated shot glasses which was not what I expected. I inside the glass was strawberry juice with chocolate topped and rimmed on it. The drink tasted awful, so bitter with almost no sweet to contrast which I assume they were going for. But my girlfriend and I had fun trying to get it down as fast as possible. 

The second dish to come out was a Tomato Bisque. I mean, pretty hard to screw up. The bisque tasted like pizza sauce that was warm and poured into a bowl. As you can see I'm not a huge fan of tomato-based soups.

Our main dish finally comes out. A 10oz filet mignon and two lobster tails. We split the dish in half obviously and each had 5oz and one tail. The lobster was just heavenly and melted in my mouth. It was so sweet and so succulent and it made my mouth very happy. The filet was good, very tender and very juicy. Though not the best steak I have ever eaten it was quite good. We were also served a standard mashed potatoes and asparagus as our sides.

For desert we were given a single milk shake to share. It was a chocolate milkshake that was basically the same as anywhere you'd buy one. Though it was a nice touch to end the meal. The bill was paid with one eye open and we called for our valet. As I drove away I knew I'd return to this restaurant, for it had potential to make my mouth into a river. But sadly that was not this visit. 

Overall: 3 out of 5
