Bill, Shari, Pat and Jim showed up for our 7:00 reservation at 6:50. We were greeted by a crowd of nearly 20 people, several of whom had not been seated for their 6:30 reservations. By 7:40 we were seated and given plenty of time to study the menu.We finally placed our appetizer order about 25 minutes after being seated and our dinner order 20 minutes after that. The four of us ordered 2 appetizers. Strangely, they showed up 15 minutes apart. Pat and Jim were long done their order of muscles by the time our pizza showed up....not very good timing. Fortunately, the dishes were very tasty even though the muscle order was a bit small. About 30 minutes later our entree's arrived. Pat ordered the chicken parm and was very disappointed. The chicken was soggy and bland. Shari and I ordered a pasta dish with crabmeat and blush sauce. It was good but the combined amount of crabmeat in our 2 dishes might have totalled a mouthful. Jim was the dinner winner with a chicken and vegetable dish with artichoke. It was prepared nicely and we all agreed that it was by far the best of our dishes. Overall, I'd have to say we were very disappointed with our visit. For a $160 evening, I don't fel we received value.
