Floataway can be a little difficult to find since it is hidden down a small alley way, but once we found it we were very happy with our dining experience. No valet parking here. They have an ample parking lot that you can park yourself.
They have a nice bar area with about 6 bar seats and a couple tables. We arrived early and had a couple cocktails at the bar. One was gin based the other bourbon. I can’t recall their names but both were well mixed and the service was as expected from the bartender.
Once we finished up we were sat at our table. We liked the décor. It was nice yet also original. We did not have an issue having a conversation at dinner as the venue never got too loud. We did go on a week night and it was not full so I’m not sure how it would be on a Friday or Saturday evening.
We ordered a bottle of wine to enjoy with our meal. We thought the bottle prices were very reasonable. They start your meal off with bread and butter service. The bread was a wonderful sourdough that we both enjoyed greatly.
For our meal, I tried the Lamb shank and my wife tried the Casarecce. My Lamb Shank was tender and I savored ever bite. It truly was delicious. The beans and scallion it was served with were okay but the meat was easily the start of the show. As for the Casarecce it was filling and delicious too. My wife was is not a big fan of veal but wanted to try it anyway. The veal meatballs were large and delicious and the pasta was wonderful. Both dishes exceeded our expectations. To accompany the meal, we also tried the wood roasted sunchokes. I was not familiar with them and we both enjoyed how they were prepared, but walked away thinking sunchokes are not our favorite as we did not enjoy that portion of our meal as much as the others. Personally, I would try a different vegetable next time but that is just my taste.
For dessert, we tried the gateau Victoire. We thought this was okay. Again, not bad but we did not love it like we did our main. We would probably try a different dessert next time.
Service was great throughout the evening. We enjoyed our time here and we will be back to try other menu items!
