We were 10 minutes late but our table was still not ready for 40 minutes after the time we booked. Bar service was a shambles, waited 10 minutes to get a drink as the barman and a waiter were searching aimlessly for a bottle of wine for a table; not a good start! Eventually got seated, our waiter (Jessie) was excellent and saved the entire night to be honest!
For a "fine French restaurant" the wine list was distinctly lacking in anything interesting, it was quite a disappointment. First courses were a mixture - interesting lamb tartare, overpriced scallops served with very firm ravioli, good foie gras, and very small portion of quail confit and duck breast. Bread arrived halfway through the first course as some sort of after-thought, although it was good bread! The barman struggled to find a bottle of wine we asked for with our starters, so it came late, found by our waiter - seems they need to improve the bar service!
Main courses - actually very good NY Strip steak and Bouillabaisse, but the added lobster tail (which arrived late!) was a waste of time and money as an addition. Gulf Chobia was not good though, seemed over-cooked and over-salted. We ordered the wine ahead of time and just got it, although we did do a lot of self-pouring!
Deserts were pleasant enough, a large cheese plate. Coffee was nothing like it could have been in a French restaurant. We were also rather put off by the fact that they started to mop the floors all around us as we were finishing our meal - never a pleasant thing to happen in a restaurant.
We came expecting a good experience and got average to be honest.... there are much better places in town for a special occasion!
