You're paying for the view here. Our first impression was the hostess that acted as if we were a nuisance. Regarding the food, the ideas of the dishes were good on paper, but they failed to complete that promise. Our salad for example: arugula, apples, walnuts, parmesan. The sliced apples were nonexistent. How expensive are apples? Also, the walnuts must have just come out of the generic broken walnuts bin at Superstore they were so bland. The food was not bad per se, just a gap between the imagination and the execution. It's a small plates restaurant and I've eaten in lots of those before, but said salad was a kiddie portion in Barbie land. And that's okay, live and learn, order another dish. But the ambiance should have made up for it, because the place was waterfront with open air performances. But the real performance was the argument between the waitresses right in the middle of the terrace. Up until that point, the service had been perfunctory, and again, due to the ambiance, a little effort at not wearing a frown would have made us happy. But before and after the row, all we saw was a scowl. We actually had a huge discussion about whether to leave a tip. I think this was the first time in 20 years that we did not.
