We had dinner here last week. The location was great and so was the service.
The new chef is clearly very talented and the food we had was excellent. However, the night we went there were three entrees on the menu: bluefish, a lamb shank with lamb meatballs, and chicken. I ordered the fish and my lady ordered the lamb shank. A few minutes later the waiter returned and told us they were out of the bluefish. Ok, I switched my order to the lamb. Well, he said, the thing is we're out of the lamb shank but we still have the meatballs.
Ok well look: it was an 8:15pm dinner reservation on a Friday night (the first big Friday of the season). Its not like we showed up at 11pm. Seems to me that the correct response would have been to rustle up some other kind of entree from whatever was around to try bridge the gap, but this they did not do.
Pretty frustrating to sit down at dinner open your wine and eat some bread and be told that in fact there's only one choice of entree or you can combine appetizers.
That said, the food we did have was absolutely fantastic and I'm sure the entrees would have been as well. Also, I know that everyone is working out the kinks at the beginning of the season. And the staff gave us some free wine (which was above and beyond) and a free dessert.
The location is great and quality of food was also just great. If they don't make silly mistakes for you like they did for us (I mean you have to have enough food to make it past the 8:15pm seating), you will have a wonderful experience.
