Sunday evening in February, this adult couple is looking for good food and a reasonably quiet place to post-mortum the indie film we've just seen. And a little music can't hurt.
The visit turned out pretty well except for the 'good food' bit. The crowd and the music were subdued enough for reasonable table conversation (though our server said Friday and Saturday usually had larger, noisier crowds).
Service was competent but quite slow - we spent almost three hours there. That didn't bother us, but it didn't seem to bother the server either that perhaps ten minutes passed between her greeting and the time she got back to us for our wine order, and at least that long to bring the bottle. And thus it went.
The major disappointment was the food. The "market salad" was far too peppery, and a starter that included apple (marinated in red wine?) and goat cheese had limp apple slices and too little goat cheese to notice. A sauteed rock-fish was cooked perfectly but lacked flavor, and crab cakes morphed (on request) from the appetizer list into an entree came with a vegetable melange which had no apparent seasoning, and "spicy corn" that featured pepper as the spice. The crab cakes themselves weren't bad, but didn't ring any bells.
For dessert I ordered the fruit galette. Despite the server's assurance that it was indeed a crepe-like creation, what I got was more like a tartlet with sweetened cooked apple slices and a thick pastry crust that was easy to leave behind. The sorbet was a better choice, and the expresso was competent.
