Following our entrees, we asked to see the dessert menu and were surprised when the waiter returned with an ink pad which he used to stamp the menu directly on our paper tablecloth. We settled on the chocolate plate and the creme brulee of the day, which was chocolate chip. The chocolate plate included a warm brownie, mousse, and ice cream. It was a standard offering, average but nothing special. The "chocolate chip" creme brulee actually consisted of a layer of chocolate beneath the custard. It was a little too soft for my liking, and a bit cold in the middle, but otherwise it had good flavor.
Our server was very friendly throughout the night, although he was difficult to track down at times. As the restaurant filled up and neighbouring diners became more boisterous with dinner drinks, it was a bit hard to hold a conversation. Most of the diners seemed dressed in at least business casual attire, and I could see Packrat Louie being a good venue for a company dinner but not for a romantic date. Overall, I had a nice time at Packrat Louie. I didn't think the food lived up to my expectations, though perhaps the more expensive entrees have something more to offer. I would perhaps return when (if) I find myself with a great deal more disposable income than I have now.
