This is, perhaps, a place that means well during the dinner hour. I haven't had breakfast or lunch here, and maybe that's when they do well. But dinner was greatly disappointing.
Not that they aren't superficially trying to be ambitious. Their dinner menu looks quite exotic. An appetizer of butternut squash ravioil with sage, prosciutto, in a butter-cream-lemon sauce. The execution? The ravioli were fine, but not much sage and way too heavy on the lemon, which practically drowned out everything else. The sauce was like a much too lemony hollandaise.
We also ordered beef short ribs topped with a blueberry balsamic reduction sauce. The beef was fine. The problem is that the sauce wasn't reduced enough. You got tart blueberries and vinegar. If the sauce had been reduced more, you would have gotten more of the sugary, even caramelized aspects of the fruit, and the fruit and the vinegar would have melded together more. Instead, it was fruit (at least you could tell that the fruit was fresh) and vinegar on short ribs.
A salad we ordered, according to the menu, consisted of "filed greens" (sic) and romaine lettuce, among other things. The 'field greens' were barely in evidence, with much more of the romaine that was mostly near the stem, rather than the more leafy green part. The salad base came off as more of one you'd find in pre-prepared plastic package in your nearby Stop & Shop.
Prices are high at dinner. $9 for the ravioli appetizer (with 5 medium sized ravioli), and $24.95 for the short ribs, which came accompanied with some seasonal vegetables and mashed potatoes.
Service was slow. There was one waitress for the entire restaurant (though about a dozen tables in the place) and there was a woman, who appeared to be the manager, was also helping out. She was very nice, but at one point came over and asked us how the ravioli was. When we mentioned that while the ravioli were fine, the sauce had much too much lemon in it, covering up the more subtle flavors. Her response was, "Everyone likes that dish". I could only respond to that with "Maybe it's an off night for it."
So, it's from only one sample on which I write this review, but the meal was a great disappointment. I can't recommend anything about it from our one experience there. The menu is ambitious, but the execution just couldn't match it by a long shot. And for the price? Forgeddaboutit. Perhap stick to lunch or breakfast.
