I must say, the Breakers restaurant does a wonderful job in hospitality. I was a bit taken back when the receptionist had to speak with a manager about accepting our reservation last Tuesday, but I'll chalk that up to it being a hotel restaurant during the busy summer season.
The meal started off with an amuse bouche of mini pieces of pizza and bread basket with delicious focaccia and assorted types of bread along with seasoned olive oil. We took advantage of the early dining menu. Prices range from $16.95 for pasta to $23.95 for a charbroiled 10 oz. New york strip steak. Your dinner comes with soup or pasta and includes a salad. Some at our table chose the stracciatella romana soup and my son and daughter-in-law selected the penne vodka pasta. All were delicious. My aunt selected the tortellini and marinara sauce for her entree, I selected the chicken marsala, my husband had the sautéed shrimp, my daughter-in-law the chicken piccata and my son the NY strip steak. We all agree the food was delicious. Although the portions may be a tad smaller because it was an early dining menu, when you add all the components together, we all left satisfied and full. All the entrées, except my Aunt's pasta, came with smashed potatoes, which were Yukon golds with a generous helping of butter. My husband husband order a side of roasted asparagus which was delicious. Dessert choices were ice cream, sherbet, cannoli or fresh fruit. My aunt and I had the ice cream and sherbet, which came with fresh whipped cream and strawberries. Since the rest were too full and dessert was part of the meal, our server kindly offered to package mini cannoli with sliced strawberries to take home. What thoughtfulness!
The last time my husband and I were at the Breakers it was during either during a fall or winter restaurant week promotion and my husband had the venison for dinner. Even then the food was delicious, well prepared and delectable. My aunt, God bless her, ate every morsel. I think she'll come back to an extended visit again.
