We 3 couples came because we'd heard good things about it and the guest of honor was a Greek American big on Greek heritage. We all decided on the pricey prix fixe dinner to simplify ordering. The waitress advised us that for $5 each more we could drink bottomless house wine with dinner, which 3 of of opted for. Not a good option as we had to beg, repeatedly for refills, and apparently our waitress forgot her name, which was Miss, as far as we knew, regardless of how loudly we called to her, despite the restaurant being empty save for one other table. Suffice it to say we were less than impressed with the wine service and availability.
The food was good, the first course, a flakey pastry appetizer, was fine, the Caesar salad, which was basically romaine and onion, was terrible. I love personal interpretations of the classics, but when you call a salad Caesar, you don't try to reinvent it. The salad sucked.
The grape leaf wrapped cod was good, if bland, served plain with no accompaniment, which was a relief after all the onion in the salad. The brisket lasagne was tasty as well, except that there were six of us and we were only served 5 portions, cut into 5 pieces on the serving tray. Upon pointing this out to the waitress, what's her name?, she enquired of the cook, who told us that no, we were mistaken, and the 5 portions were meant to feed the six of us, and we should just cut one in two to make up the difference. We were all stunned by this info, having never been treated so cavalierly by a cook in absentia before.
The desert was fine, some sort of chocolate confection served in an overly large coffe cup, and the plunger coffee we were served with it in individual plungers was, well, plunger coffee
We were never offered an apology for the shortage of one portion of a main course, and to be honest, I don't think the waitress even realized that we had been shorted . For that matter, the service, from start to finish, was coffee shop level at best, which certainly didn't rise to the prices on the menu.
The room was a typical, old, New England building, having gone through numerous incarnations over it's long life, with pressed tin ceiling and warm wall colors. Our table appeared to have been wrought out of an old door, which might be charming in an informal environment, but at this price point just seemed a tad cheesey.
Food quality- 3
on a scale of 5
PS- Our Greek friend was totally unimpressed with the quality or authenticity of the food.
