How I miss the days when Chez Piggy did it right! Our two recent visits were more than disappointing. Poorly handled basic preparations; meals lacking in structure and finesse yet priced as though from a Michelin 2-star restaurant--really, it's not good enough. Should have known...More

Went to a perennial favorite restaurant on a Saturday night at 7;30pm. Too quiet, festive atmosphere absent despite approaching winter holidays. The food was average despite the promising descriptive and the prices were unreasonable. Afraid won't return for a long while. Sad comment on this...More

This restaurant claims to purchase only fish and shellfish that are caught sustainably. It is known that sustainable seafood is a meaningless marketing ploy. Does this mean this restaurant serves farm raised fish? Does this mean this restaurant serves genetically engineered Frankenfish?
