I was there with a large work group. I liked the atmosphere, the cozy lighting and natural finishes. Our waiter was forever walking away when we had questions. I asked about having an entree sized portion of the scallops and was told it would be $32 for 4 scallops...no thanks. The crab fondue we shared was salty, the bread that accompanied it was good...but I was confused by the out-of-season strawberries on the plate. Were they supposed to be dipped in the crab or just a garnish? The mushroom brushetta was good, others liked the brushetta with fish and chicken.
I settled on pork loin for the entree. I think it was $29 for a fair portion of tender, but overcooked pork, bitter greens and "spponbread" that appeared to be cornbread that was very dry.
The dessert I have was chocolate cake balls with a little drizzle of caramel, with a peanut butter cream that was delicious. The cake balls were nothing special.
My meal was probably $50, without the tip.
I would prefer the University of Delaware upscale "Vita Nova" if I am looking for a fancy, but fairly priced dinner on Main Street in Newark.
