After having read many good reviews on travel and foodie sites, my wife and I were excited about trying Community Table, especially since her tastes run toward vegetarian dishes. I called the same day for a reservation and was told we could be seated at the community table. The space is beautifully laid out and decorated, and sharing a large table with a couple other couples was not a bother to us in any way. What was a big dissappointment was the prices versus the quantity/quality of food. My wife had a salad of some field greens and figs on a 6" plate for $12. I ordered a fish dish similar to a boulibasse - it had two 2-ounce pieces of haddock in it and 4 mussels for $28, and my wife had a small piece of chicken. My fish was ok, but I've had mussels just as good at Bertucci's. There's even a $3/pp charge for bread. The food was good, but the check for 2 was over $120 for 2 small appetizers, 2 entrees, and a glass of wine and a beer. We left hungry. I don't have a problem paying well for a great meal, but we had no exotic ingredients and very small portions. The cheese plate is $21 for 3 selections of cheese, really? There was a Maserati parked in front and we shared a table with some NYC fashionistas - perhaps they get enough business from the NY crowd they they can be indifferent to offering a meal at a fair price. When was the last time you paid over $60 pp and had to pay for bread and butter?
