When we called the restaurant we were told that reservations would not be available until 8:45pm, but we could chance it by coming over. We were able to be seated timely, as the hostess rearranged the reserved tables. The waiter was extremely knowledgable and attentive.
Two of us split the equivalent of a fig, goat cheese, and caramelized onion flat bread pizza that could have benefited from a splash of balsamic syrup. The veal shoulder was tasty but I could not detect the lemon confit and oregano as advertised. Unfortunately there were clumps of fat inside the meat. A member of our party was charged extra to substitute spinach for creamy leeks that accompanied her pan roasted halibut. The Maine diver scallops were jumbo sized with only three per serving. The portions are adequate but not large.
The dessert menu was disappointing as there wasn't any cake (other than strawberry marscapone) listed, and it was my birthday. I sampled a taste of caramel tart that another diner ordered, but the cookie crust was dry; and the caramel was skimpy, tasting more like dulce de leche ifrom a jar being rather thick than lucsious . The sorbets were very good - a small scoop of rich chocolate sorbet topped the tart, and another person let me sample the cherry port sorbet that was incredibly flavorful and creamier than most sorbets. I concur with another reviewer who commented that the dessert portions were small for the price.
Plating and presentation are attractive. Noise level does get a bit high when the restaurant is full. Overall it was very good but not as great as I had thought it would be.
