With the reviews, I was excited to finally try this restaurant.
A Saturday evening, around 8pm and I was a bit surprised how empty the place was. A guitarist and keyboard player were entertaining all three tables of people!
I ordered a cocktail and it was very weak. Appetizers were Caprese Salad (Tomatoes w Fresh Mozarella) and although tasty, the slices if cheese were too thick! It was way too much and I couldn't finish it. The other appetizer was Escargot (snails) in a "homemade pastry crust." It was just okay.
Our entrees: Lobster Ravioli for me, a bowl of Lobster Bisque for my friend. Before ordering, I asked the waitress what dishes would REALLY impress me. The Lobster Raviolis were announced enthusiastically--hence my choice.
I specifically asked her if they were made in house and not frozen. She insisted that most all their pastas were handmade. At $24 I thought they should certainly be fresh pasta. They weren't. In fact, although attractive on the plate, there was an "off-taste" which didn't appeal to me at all. I suspect it was freezer odor. Strange--still, I picked at it but did not finish it. Of note; the actual Raviolis were filled with a dense cheese mixture; with a pink tinge to it. The lobster meat was scattered in little pieces amidst lots of diced tomato. This is a clever way to give the appearance of more red lobster meat!!
I had a glass of New Zealand white wine ($9) and it was okay but served ice cold. My water never once was refilled.
The atmosphere was saying "we need customers." I'm pretty sure the owner was present and despite the lack of patrons, he never smiled or made us feel welcomed.
I think there's a reason this place is empty on a Saturday night. I might go one more time as I enjoy live music (weekends only I believe). All in all; we dropped $100 in about an hour and walked away less-than-impressed. Lastly, the waitress smoking a cigarette just outside the front door left another bad taste in my mouth!! Could you find a different place next time??
