The Excelsior is in a beautiful building downtown. It has an old-school restaurant feel and vibe, complete with white tablecloths. Our server was attentive when at our table, he just wasn't there quite often enough.
The food was spotty at best. The soup of the day was Ribollita. The beans were dreadfully undercooked to the point that they practically crunched when bitten into. The Chef had dropped a huge portion of mirepoix into the cup which made the "soup" a sticky glob of undercooked beans and vegetable mash. I ordered Osso Bucco that was bland and undercooked, served with over-seasoned risotto and more undercooked beans. My girlfriend ordered the Pork Chop and it was very tasty but she also got a generous serving of the ever-present undercooked beans. Overall this was a disappointing meal, particularly for the price. I likely won't go back to the Excelsior anytime soon.
