Winterdine: St. James Gate

|Let's Tweet

St James GateThe first place I went to enjoy WinterDine, was a restaurant on Kent Street called St. James Gate. The options for WinterDine at St. James Gate include:



Surf & Turf
8 oz New York Striploin drizzled with blackberry ginger balsamic topped with bacon wrapped scallops and chipotle shrimp
Island baby red potatoes and fresh sautéed vegetables

Salmon Newburg
6 oz Atlantic Salmon served with Island baby reds potatoes and fresh sautéed vegetables

Homemade Dessert

Price $25 per person Plus Taxes.


I decided to go with the butternut squash soup. After all, I haven't been much of a fan for Spinach Salad in the past. Looking back, I should have went my unusual route with Spinach Salad. The Butternut Squash Soup was okay, it wasn't great and wasn't bad. I did semi-enjoy it but I thought there was something missing. Some sorta spice to add some more kick as it tasted plain. And plain, is normal.

8oz New York Striploin

My selected main course was the 8oz New York Striploin. I thought the 8oz steak was good. Definitely the best part of the meal in combination with the good amount of vegetables on my place. The steak was cooked as ordered and tasted great.

The shrimp on the other hand, I thought the shrimp were over cooked to the point where I actually dipped some in ketchup. And as much as I like ketchup, if I am dipping something in ketchup, the food is missing something. The bacon wrapped scallops excited me as well, I really enjoy good scallops however I thought the scallops were also missing something. Both the shrimp and the bacon wrapped scallops could have used a dipping sauce to help really bring out the extras.


Then came dessert. Now usually I don't eat dessert. I avoid it. However since dessert is included with WinterDine, I thought I might as well dig in. The Cheesecake was just as hoped, delicious. It reminded me of just how good cheesecake is.

Overall, the meal was okay. Not great, not bad but for $25, it was a good deal. The service at St. James Gate was really good. For someone who drinks a lot of liquids, it is important that my glass never be empty. As such, the ladies at St. James Gate took care of this extremely well.
