Spargo seems to be following PF Chang's recipe for succes: put out a few sexy hostesses, sprinkle a few more cute waitress or waiters and add some innovative food. Only for Spargo, the motif is Mediterranean and not Indochine.
I had the surprisingly tasteless pistachio encrusted salmon while three others chose the lamb shank which they praised as very tender. The salmon came on a bed of pina colada rice that was overshadowed by its mandarin orange buerre blanc sauce. [Don't mix the two]. The latter tasted as syrup from a bottle. To make it seem more like PF Chang's it also had one broccoli floret. As did the lamb. The lamb shank came with the de rigeur garlic mashed potatoes. I heard no complaints.
If you have a lot of money you might try the Kobe beef at $50. Salads, by the way start at $6. There is a tasting menue that starts at $38.
Service was so-so.

My husband and I took our first trip to Spargo's Grille for our anniversary last month and we will definitely be back. We opted for the five course tasting menu and the dishes came out wonderfully. The mussels in the Sambuca sauce is a must and my husband said the Truffle Scallops were the best scallops he has ever had! Service was on point and all the staff is very professionally and friendly. Its also nice to see the owner and chef popping in and out of the kitchen, checking up on tables to see how everything is. Wonderful experience and will recommened this lovely restraurant to friends and family!

This is our special-occasion restaurant. The food is excellent as is the service. We also love that it's quiet and has a lovely environment.
