We came with 6 of us and were led to a table right away. Had to ask for our drink order to be taken and was then told of the three items from the menu they were out of (it’s not a very big menu and what they told us we couldn’t have, we would have preferred to what came, I’m sure).
I wasn’t overly impressed with the menu; not really a lot of things looked appetizing or appealing to me. I ended up ordering some spicy peppers to start (recommended by our waiter) and they came and yup, there was a white plate with about 6 peppers on it and a blob of aioli. I don’t know what, exactly, I was expecting, but I wasn’t impressed. They tasted okay, but it just seems strange to be handed a plate of hot peppers to eat.
Someone else ordered a crab pasta and she said the pasta wasn’t cooked properly (too al dente) and the noodles were all stuck together. Another at our table sent her main course back, as part of it was burnt (though they claimed it was meant to be). The only thing which looked great, that I didn’t try were the sea scallops. Three of them for like $26. Maybe it was an off night, but I wouldn’t go back.
