We had been wanting to try this Darden property based on a recommendation from relatives that live in the area.
The facility is very impressive with a lot of attention to detail and decor.
We were seated at a booth in the bar area and our server, Debbie, was also the bar tender at our early lunch hour of 11:30 AM. We confessed to being a novice to this concept restaurant and she took a good ten minutes explaining the healthy and extensive menu that has weekly changing specials. She is an asset to the company.
We just wished the food equaled the service and decor.
The wife had an excellent glass of King Estate Pinot Gris at $10.25. I went with a bottled Heineken for $5.50. This was just the start of paying for the fancy decor.
She had a seafood spring roll with three sauces and I had a cup of their onion, beef and mushroom soup. Both items were good, but again not worth the prices charged. For her main she went with the fish of the day, a Corvina Mayan with lots of red coloring (spices?) and vegetables, but bland in flavor. I tried their Mediterranean Greek Flatbread which arrived slightly warm. At least it had some flavor.
We tried two of the dessert shooters which were the best part of the meal.
Part of the concept listed on the menu is the fact that no dish contained more than 475 calories and were made with the freshest ingredients.
It is a good concept, but they have to add the flavor before we will be back. Total bill before tip came in at $70.92. In our opinion there might have been $15.00 worth of food and $55.00 worth of hype.
