Four of us sat on the restaurant side because the more casual side was so noisy we did not think we'd be able to carry on a conversation. Once seated we were repeatedly asked if we wanted to order drinks but were not given menus till we asked for them. I did not appreciate this and cannot remember every feeling so pressured to order a drink in a restaurant. It's not as if we were sitting at a bar using up valuable drinking real estate with empty glasses!
This was not an auspicious beginning to our meal. Once we ordered and told the waitress we had a time limit (an hour+) due to a concert across the street, she said no problem and then disappeared for almost a half hour. Actually, once we ordered our drinks, the service declined from over-attentive to "where is our server?" The food was SO salty. Really salt was the main flavor and drowned everything else out. The best thing we ordered was a salad that was delicious. The risotto was so strange: just a pile of red risotto and not one parsley leaf, piece of onion or anything to either decorate the plate or even better, add some contrast to the meal. And did I mention it was too salty? A side dish of spinach: way too salty (and overpriced at $5 for a small heap of spinach). Two in the party ordered an "Italian eggplant" dish. This was truly the strangest meal we had seen: mashed white beans with one slice of (grilled?) eggplant laying atop it, accompanied by a dolma which turned out to be white rice wrapped in a large leaf!. Nothing like the middle eastern version of dolma, no noticeable seasoning, no veggies, just salt.
This might be a fun place to meet some friends for a noisy drink over on the Hops side, but I cannot imagine going back there to eat when there are so many better choices in Williamstown.
