Idylwood Grill & Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: In the spirit of a neighborhood destination for diners seeking a little more than sandwiches or pizza, Idylwood Grill’s menu is just slightly pricey without being too expensive and its décor is suburban chic without all the frills of a downtown place. If you want something casual, there’s a nighttime burger and plenty of pasta dishes and full-size salads. We can recommend the mussels marinière to start, and if you are not very hungry pair this with a house salad and the meal is done. On the other hand, you might consider kicking off dinner with a Caesar salad --- nothing startling --- and continue on to light seafood entrées, such as the tuna steak Provençal or the blackened salmon, and for a different twist, the chicken Dijon. Before you make your final entrée selection, however, ask about the day’s specials: you may find a roasted duck breast offered with an appropriate wine.
