The reviews sold me on trying this place during a brief visit. When you read descriptives like favorite, excellent, best, fine dining, etc., you have to try it and have high expectations when doing so. I'll say up front that the wait staff was very courteous, attentive, and professional.
This was a huge disappointment for us. Fine dining needs at least two essential components: an elegant atmosphere and unique, superb food. This restaurant, which has a very nice and comfortable atmosphere, serves the most flavorless food I have had in very long time. It's almost as if the cooks ran out of herbs and spices while preparing our dishes. The cut of filet that my wife ordered was good, but it had no flavor. The "spicy barbeque New Orleans shrimp" on top were not spicy but bland.
I had the stuffed flounder -- the fish itself was overcooked and dry and the crabmeat stuffing was too bready without enough crab meat. We shared sides of creamed spinach and mashed potatoes. Both were too dry and badly needed flavor. I've been on a low-sodium diet for 40 years, and this is the first time my wife sees me using the salt shaker (on every dish) at the table in a restaurant or our home.
Maybe other reviewers just like their food bland. But you know, it's pretty sad when your wife tells you the steak she had at a reasonably-priced chain restaurant the night before was far better. We definitely won't return here.
