As a Chef myself, I can say that the upside is the decor. They spent some cash refurbishing a beautiful bank for dining purposes. However, Lira's menu is a trainwreck. Lira doesn't know what it wants to be. Upscale ding? Sports lounge? The menu is a confusion of various items with no connection. The salads are actually refreshing, while the Meatballs w/ tzatziki is bland and tastless. I will say that the Ratatouilli is the best I've had in years, but they aren't consistant on the menu. International mixed w/ italian, and some dishes are still stuck in 1985. I get the idea that the Chef (if they even HAVE one) has NO control over the kitchen, and the owner impliments his "concepts" without regard for new, inventive ideology. An attempt, yes. I fail, certainly. Overpriced and snooty. The staff have NO idea what's going on in terms of the menu. Don't expect a real explanation of the courses. It's usaully a gussing game. Suggestion: save your money and the headache.
