Smell / look / taste of Seafood fettucini

Chris – seafood and pasta cooked perfectly, but what made this amazing was the texture and taste of the cream sauce.  Very rich and filling!

Smell / look / taste of Chicken Quesadillas

Margaret – sauce was sweet. Had red peppers and chicken – was pretty plain (I like mine better).  Had flecks of something but I can’t remember.  I don’t know if it was on the menu but I should have ordered guacamole as well.

Smell / look / taste of Bailey’s Cheesecake

Chris – I love Baileys, I love cheesecake, perfect blend.  Like the little touches such as the cocoa dusting around the shape of a fork.  Tasted great, but I should have gone with something with a greater citrus taste to not clash with the fettuccine.
