“Very good food but no atmosphere”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

The seafood, salads, and veal were perfectly cooked. Though, $32 for a veal chop in a nondescript restaurant like this is too much money. The bread is good. The tables are well spaced, and they have a nice bar. The downside is that they rush you to order even when the place is empty. Also, the wines by the bottle begin in the $40 price range which is too high for a casual place with little vibe.

“Unbearable noise level”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

If you plan on having a conversation, try a different restaurant. The food and service were average, not nearly enough to cancel out the excessive noise level. All the noise came from the small dining area, not from the bar which is in a separate area. None of our selections were memorable enough to bring us back: the lobster mac and cheese was watery and bland, the sandwich fillings were overpowered by large doughy and cold rolls. Service was sketchy, sandwiches were brought with salads instead of fries as ordered, waiters were more intent on selling drinks.

“AWFUL”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

The description of Salade Nicoise on the menu said seared tuna, green beans, anchovies, egg and salad. When my dinner arrived it was only tuna and lettuce leaves. Nothing else. The wine is not corked at the table, as it should be. The restaurant is extremely noisy. BAD Also, when I made the reservation, the fellow was not very pleasant on the phone.
