The ambiance here is lovely with its exposed beams and brick walls. The open kitchen is fun to watch, but makes the restaurant noisy and warm. The restaurant was crowded on a Sunday night, but we were seated within 30 minutes without a reservation. Our server was efficient and well-versed in the menu. The food, however, is so-so. I had the salt cod appetizer, which was a bit bland. It needs a little acidity to wake it up. The great disappointment was the lobster fra diavolo, which had gotten such high praise in previous reviews. The pasta was cooked perfectly, but wan't drained so it made what I'm sure was once a great sauce watery. The worst offense was the mussels, which had not been cleaned properly and were so gritty and sandy that we each ate just one. The lobster was good. Unfortunately, our server did not notice our untouched mussels and never asked whether we liked the dish so we had no opportunity to register our complaint and give the restaurant a chance to make it right.
