I love, love, love the ambiance of this place. We sat outside on the deck at Landry's. Ordered the broiled seafood platter for dinner. Shrimp was overcooked and the fish was fishy (so, not fresh?). Substituted the orzo & asparagus for the pilaf. Orzo which I ordinarily love tasted like something from a box mix--over seasoned and artificial tasting. Asparagus was cooked okay, but was stringy and tough at the ends and had obviously not been trimmed to remove that. The waitress had brought out bread plates when we sat down, but no bread was delivered to the table until after the salads (which were fresh & good) and after our entrees had been delivered and we asked if bread indeed came with the meal. When it was delivered, it wasn't even warm and seemed as though it was supposed to have gone into the oven or under the broiler, but that that step had been skipped. For as few people as were here on a Saturday night, the waitress was long in returning to the table. And, the food expediter who actually delivered our food and asked if everything was okay--when we asked if bread was supposed to come with the meal that we hadn't gotten any--said--oh, the kitchen ran out of bread a while ago. Didn't want to do anything to fix it. We waited for the waitress to return a quarter of the way into our meal to see if she'd bring bread. While I don't mind spending good money for good food, for a restaurant that specializes in seafood, this was a disappointment. It was a disappointment when I was here a year ago, as well, but we thought we'd give it another try because every place has a "bad night". I'm feeling this is their standard--they rely too much on their ambiance, which is awesome, to get them by rather than producing a quality food product. I'd just come here for drinks and maybe an app, but forget eating dinner here. It's just not worth the $80 we spent on dinner.
