Reviews for Lantern

Thought “inside” meant air conditioned. It was very warm. Perhaps our mistake, but not comfortable. Service was slow, but attentive when we got going…had to hand the check to the bus boy. The food was excellent, as always.

Lantern is consistently wonder. On our most recent dinner we had Chaat (mixed roasted vegetables in a mint-herb dressing), pork dumplings, tea smoked chicken and the market special fish, which was Sheephead. All were exceptionally delicious, fresh and high quality dishes. Our server was friendly. knowledgeable and attentive but never obtrusive. The brown butter cake dessert was the only, very slight disappointment as it was good but rather blah. It was served with peppercorn full review
It was a great evening to sit outside and enjoy the weather, sipping cocktails and enjoying a leisurely dinner. My husband and I decided to share an appetizer and an entree. The whole NC redfish was outstanding! The sauce on the fish with herbs was a good combination of flavors. Plenty for us to share, and the accompanying carrot ribbon salad was very nice, as well. The local strawberries are in season so we opted for 2 different strawberry desserts, and the panna cotta was full review
