Four of us ate recently here and had two different reactions: very good to so-so. The plus side first: Our server was attentive, knew the menu, and answered questions with ease. Our water glasses were filled without asking, and we were given more bread when we asked for it - both improvements from reviews on other sites. We all loved our first courses from the sautéed brussel sprouts to the beet salad to the steak tartare. All were prepared from deliciously fresh ingredients, attractively presented, and served within a reasonable amount of time. The main courses, however, were very uneven: The fish was overcooked, barely warm, and had bones still in it (not acceptable for the price it cost), the scallops were excellent, and the pork was heavily - and I mean heavily - salted. In fact, all of our main courses were too salty - don't know if the chef uses finishing salts or just adds too much to the dish. (Perhaps little salt dishes could be put on the tables for diners to use as they wish?) Only one of us had dessert, but it was superb - a rich chocolate creation! The prices are a bit high for this area - especially since there is yet no liquor license and since there are still quality issues (at least in terms of seasoning and seafood preparation). The night we were there, only 9 or so others were dining. We really, really would love for this restaurant to survive b/c fresh food (farm to table) is a great concept, the ambiance of the restaurant is lovely (a few new updates since the previous owners left - and a really nice bar... awaiting its liquor), and the staff is working to get out the kinks. But, until the overall quality of the experience equals the $45-$55 per person cost, we'll wait to return. Will look forward to reading reviews that reflect continued improvement.
