(Las Vegas, NV, USA)
I have been wanting to try this restaurant for a long time, and it did not disappoint, EVERYTHING was perfect.
Cove Castles is reminiscent of the old Altamer, same type of tables and chairs, but a smaller, intimate setting with only 12 tables. The room is stunning, high ceilings and sliding glass doors (which were open) looking out on to Shoal Bay West.
No expense has been spared in the décor and tabletops... very unique tableware, all different, heavy sterling silver for utensils, yet the place maintained a casual, comfy atmosphere, due to Chef Jermaine and our server/hostess Patricia who, along with the food were the stars of the evening.
I phoned that day for a reservation and was told they would greet us at the gate. When we got to the gate, Patricia was there in a golf cart. We drove on, had no clue where we were going and finally encountered a smiling young man who directed us where to park. This was the Chef - Jermaine, what a sweet guy.
We were the only ones there and that was fine with us. Low soft jazz was playing. Jermaine sent out an amuse bouché - asparagus/tomato/pepper on a homemade parmesian cracker - one bite that exploded with flavor in our mouths.
I had the pumpkin orange soup, thick and creamy with a hint of orange and DH had the Roquefort salad with a raspberry dressing, both fabulous. They have one of those menus where I just wanted to pick everything - too many good things to decide.
I ended up having Jermaine’s mushroom crayfish risotto, truly one of the best things I have ever tasted, creamy risotto, with big pieces of crayfish and mushrooms, wow. Their prices are not high - 30-40 dollars, in line with everywhere else.
The food, setting, and service are all worth it. GO!
Nori: I love your site and have been reading it for years, you have grown up before my eyes. Thanks for all you do.
Nori's Reply: Ellen, thank you for your kind words and your wonderful story! I'm so glad that you love the website :-) It is a real coincidence that you wrote about Cove Castles. My Dad has been dying to dine there. Looks like this will push him over the edge... Can't wait to try it! Thank you so much again.
