The first tip off that this wouldn't be up to French standards was that there were no specials. It looks like they cook the same couple of dishes day after day. For appetizers, we had a shrimp dish that was excellent and a salad that was good, but nothing special, falling short of similar we had at both Mezzanine and Gloria's De Pepe. For the main course, we had the lasagna (my 14 year old), the lobster tail, and a shrimp dish. The lasagna was fine, the lobster was interesting but not particularily tasty and very plainly presented-just the chopped meat and and veggies in the shell-no sides, no garnish. The biggest disapointment was the shrimp dish-- it was no larger than the shrimp appetizer had been. Sort of a scallop with 3 shrimp on top surrounded by a huge expanse of empty plate. The bread by the way was toasted --I guess it was old? I have been to France several times and never had such a sparse, rote meal. The service and setting were lovely, but it was definitely the most disapointing (and expensive) meal of our trip. Perhaps the regular cook was off? Not wanting to waste more money, we did not order desert but went back to the center of town for excellent Gelato at P & C instead.
