We visited in mid June and the restaurant had been open for a few months -- it was packed, and the hostesses found a table for us at the last minute, which was greatly appreciated. Everything went downhill from there. We had a great server who was very friendly and knowledgable about the menu. The only problem was she had definate time management issues. She was spending so much time chatting up the patrons, she was not on top of her food. Granted, there seems to have been problems with the kitchen the night we visited, as the staff seemed to be comping an awful lot of meals. However, it took us 45 minutes to get -- a salad. Yes, a salad. Not a salad that had something cooked on it, but one of the cold salads on their menu. In the middle of our wait, one of our hostesses asked us to reach into a panel where apparently the sound system was located and remove the ipod there. We were able to take it out, but we had difficulty reconnecting it to the system, but after several tries, managed to do so. By the time we had gotten it connected, the hostess had walked away muttering something we couldn't understand. The music came back on and you would think the hostess would come back and say thank you, maybe offer you a beverage for your efforts -- nope! Back to the food. Our theory with our server is that she had ordered our entrees but either, knowing there were problems in the kitchen, delayed getting our salads or just forgot about them. She came up at one point and said, "where are your salads?" Shortly after this our salads arrived, but as soon as the salads were cleared our entrees arrived. Both really overdone. I had a chicken and shrimp dish that resembled leather and pencil erasers. My partner also had way overdone chicken breast. We were so starving at this point that we ate what we could, declined dessert as we felt it would take another hour and we needed to get on the road. Might consider coming back, but doubt it.
