The Rock-itt : May 2011
This was my first visit to Lizotte's and I have to be honest, I didn't know what to expect when I was asked to do this review. When I walked in I was greeted by warm and friendly staff who took us to our seats and gave us a couple of beers. Then, out came the band who straight away had my attention. I'll admit that I very rarely listen to Jazz music but watching it live was something else. You can really see all the musicians getting into the music. My feet were tapping the whole time I was there! I ordered the chilli crab -- being the special for the night -- and had very high hopes as it's my favourite type of food. I have eaten chilli crab all through Asia and this chilli crab is up there with the best I've ever had. I was taken back by how much crab I was given -- 2 whole blue swimmer crabs in a chilli, garlic and ginger sauce accompanied by baby bok choy and a bowl of rice to soak up that juice. The crab was so delicate you could pretty much eat the entire crab -- shells and all. The heat from the chilli was perfect. There was not one bit of food left on my plate. The service was excellent. I was looked after the entire night by the staff, who were very knowledgeable about the food which I like in a restaurant. The food was on our table only 10 minutes after ordering which is another tick in my book. One thing I noticed while I was there was the size of the restaurant. Lizotte's is huge, definitely the perfect place to take a whole bunch of mates for dinner and listen to some great live music. I will be going back to Lizotte's in the near future and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a new place to eat with great entertainment. Thanks for a great night! Ian Bird The band performing was an explosive modern trio called 'The Ed Rodrigues'. Hannah James was on the acoustic bass, Casey Golden on piano and Ed Rodrigues on drums. They played old and new songs from early American Broadway to the latest top pop tunes.
