Hotel St. Germain Restaurant Review: You'll be treated like royalty in the dining room of this charming Victorian home-turned-hotel --- where, in fact, royalty has stayed. A hand-signed note from the owner will welcome you to dinner, you'll be greeted by name when you arrive, and you will dine by candlelight among the owner's personal collection of fine antiques and china. With the exit of previous chef Chad Martin, these days it’s Norman Grimm, formerly of Kitchen LTO, at the helm. Dinner is prix-fixe at $85 per person and comes with wine and Champagne from the extensive cellar served in glittering cut crystal with lavender roses on each table. Service is literally white glove --- they wouldn't want to mar the silver domes that cover each plate on the trip from the kitchen to the dining room --- and well-paced. This is easily one of the most romantic places in town: tables are set far apart and the lighting is muted; a tiny flashlight is provided to read the menu. You might want to pause in the lovely vine-covered courtyard for a little smooching after dinner.
