Sunday evening, 6 pm, birthday dinner for two. Lovely upstairs table by the fire in an historic building. The Furnace Inn has the best service you could ask for, which is a huge part of our return to this favorite special occasion restaurant. We enjoyed a nicely balanced Kentucky Mule and tried the Pumpkin Martini -- delicious, and good enough to be a dessert cocktail! The food, as always local sourced or even grown in-house, was excellent -- with the exception of disappointing desserts (which they, at their own suggestion, removed from our bill). Goat cheese stuffed prosciutto (home-made) wrapped figs (home grown) started off our yummy dinner. The Northwest Sampler of salmon and a venison sausage (home-made) was excellent -- order the Salmon slightly less than medium and you will be pleased. The vegetarian Moussaka was very flavorful and chocked full of two cheeses, onions, eggplant, red bell peppers. We ordered the peanut butter creme brulee, which disappointed because it was pasty and dry. We also ordered the pear panacotta with white chocolate cranberry bark -- that, too, disappointed since, in my view, panacotta should be almost "slippery" and this was somewhat "cakey"; the sliced pears were crunchy and the white chocolate cranberry bark was so hard I could not break it with my fork and had to pick it up to bite really hard through it. When our server asked, we were quietly honest and when the bill came, he had removed the desserts. We've been here several times and the prices seem to have gone up a bit. Still, having such great service, (usually) extremely well prepared dishes, and attention to detail, we'll be back. Hope you try them for your special night out!
