***** (5 stars)
I really liked the ambiance and food at Remington’s. It seems too narrow to classify it as a steakhouse, and particularly at lunchtime that’s really not what it’s all about. There are a nice assortment of appetizers, sandwiches and salads.
I particularly like the way the place is divided into a number of spaces, with high dividers between central booths. This keeps the noise level down. And the individual table lights create an intimate atmosphere. The front bar space is also nice, and there is a room formed by the wine cellar racking that would be great for groups.
We went for lunch and started with the ceviche, which had a nice assortment of seafood drenched in crisp lime.
The hamburger was large, perfectly cooked, and served with all the appropriate toppings and accompaniments. The skinny fries that came with it were okay, but could have been crisper.
My favorite was the kale salad, an interesting mix of kale, grapes, peanuts and other ingredients in a nice dressing.
Service was fast, friendly and helpful.
