I must say that I used to love this place. They had an AMAZING mushroom soup. My husband and I had been there about 5-6 times, alone or with friends. On early august my husband, mother and I drove almost an hour to have lunch, ohhhh boy bad idea!!! The menu had changed, the old chef was gone, and the sous-chef was not the chef, nonetheless we decided to stay.
We ordered a lobster dish (the most expensive dish in the menu), words cannot express, it was nothing more than a lobster dog, THAT IS plain lobster pieces with mayo inside of a HOT DOG BUN and 6 tiny pieces of melon on the side and THAT WAS IT!!!!!! THE WORST THING EVER!!! DONT WORTH THE DRIVE. I have eaten in many places, like a fine dining connoisseur and world traveler I was quite dissapointed, I will never set a foot in this place or recommended to anyone.
Not worth your money. On the way out talked to the owner who told us " I cannot do anything now, you already paid" "But its lobster Mam, lobster is expensive" Mediocre response, you can have the most expensive ingredients, but if you dont know how to prepare, its all a waste. We eat thru the eyes too, presentation wise, awful! I forgot the iphone in my car otherwise I would be attaching a pic!!! The owner and pseudo chef shoud go to Culinary school.

I would like to state our position regarding the customer's visit to the bistro. I sat them at their table and she asked me if we served the Mushroom soup. I informed her that we no longer serve this dish. This was our previous chef's dish and we stopped serving it when she left. I informed them that our previous sous-chef is now our head chef.

The customers proceeded to order their dishes. While having their meals, the waitstaff assigned to them indicated to me that even though they did not say anything to him, he could sense that they were not completely satisfied with their meals.
On their way out, they spoke to the other owner, Jake, and mentioned their disatisfaction with the meal. He informed them that there have not been any changes made to the Lobster roll. From the recipe to the kind of bread we use, the dish is the same as from the first day we started serving it. Jake never replied to them that " I cannot do anything now, you already paid" "But its lobster Mam, lobster is expensive".
We apologize if they were not satisfied with their meals. They can criticize our food if it is not to their liking. But I don't think its fair to personally attack the people making the effort to provide a good meal for the customers.
