Hmm, well, I made a reservation(as recommended by their sign), but I should have just had some bar food from the Turtle. My gf's 1st course salad was wilted and soggy, and the chicken in my chicken tortilla soup was dry, but the soup had good flavor. The main course I ordered was "Shrimp Bruschetta" that would have been more appropriately called Shrimp Kebab, as it was some onion and shrimp on a skewer, with the shrimp being really tough(overcooked), served with a bed of rice that had some randomly paired and mushy vegetables, broccoli and zucchini, even more, the demi glace that was supposed to be with the dish was mistakenly substituted by the chef with a mango-chile sauce that went with another dish, but I accepted it anyway, as I didnt want to have to wait any longer than we had. My gf's lobster risotto was very clumpy and dry, bland at best. Lastly, the 3rd dish, why they can't just call it dessert is beyond me, but anyway,,, I had the strawberry cheesecake, came with a strawberry sauce on top of it, was decent, but so is Jack-in-the-box cheesecake. My gf ordered the "last piece" of the chocolate cake, or so the server said it was the last piece, but by the lack of customers in the joint, I took it as we have one last piece of this cake to get rid of that we've had for a week,, and as predicted, a very dry slice of cake was served. Because it was her birthday, she was a trooper and mustered through eating most of it, poor girl. For roughly 100$, I could have had much better shrimp, Lobster Bites/fritters, and fruity libations from either The Turtle or Beachers, along with some cash in the pocket on the way out. But as it stands, a sore butt and a lesson learned. Would not recommend this place, unless some drastic changes are made.
