My husband took me out for dinner last night for my birthday. I looked again on Tripadvisor, which I oftten do when trying to find something a little more special, and found "Hedi's Wine Bistro", Normally I would not go onto the site as both my husband and I are non-drinkers, but oh so glad I did. We decided to go for dinner to Hedis' Wine Bistro. I was surprised at the location as it was on the one-way street in Salmon Arm and I have passed by it many times without noticing it.,
We were met at the door and our coats were taken from us by the Hostess, and we were escorted to a lovely intimate table near the back. (If I were to have a preference, we would have like to have been seated a little further away from the only other couple there)
We opted on having the set 3 course gourmet meal which was paired with various wines, (we chose a wonderful percolated coffee instead)
Our meal began with a lovely camembert which was specially done by the chef. Our entree was a perfectly cooked snapper with a delicate white wine sauce, and lightly curried rice followed by crepe suzette. It was the first time I have had crepe suzette which wasn't flambed, none the less it was delicious. We had a choice of a flambed chicken for the entree, which we will definately try next time.
There was a wide variety of wonderful items on the menu, coq au vin, rouladen simmered in red wine, steak, fondue for two.....all amazing I am sure!
The service was friendly and attentive. The chef came out to say hello and ask about our meals.
We were pleasantly surprised to find that passes to the movie, (almost next door) were included free with the meal!!! As it was my birthday and we were planning on going to the movies, it was a real bonus. Apparently this occurs the first three Tuesday before Christmas!!
Thank you Hedis' for making my birthday a memorable one. We are from Blind Bay, only a 20 minute drive, so will be coming a little more often!!! Especially for special occasions.
