We returned for a second go at the tasting menu, which we had enjoyed before. This time, most of the food was good (except for the last course, a bizarre Brussels sprouts concoction tasting of salty burnt vinegar) and some was excellent (notably the grilled baby lamb chops and the salmon skewers). But the service left us with a very bad taste in our mouths. We had to tell our server three times not to hurtle the courses at us as if we were in a race. And then at the end, as we were enjoying the intense postprandial conversations to which our meal had brought us, we were interrupted and asked to leave as others were waiting. We get the idea of table turnover, but a restaurant that received from us $450 for a multi-course tasting menu should surely expect us to take a little time to savor it, rather than hustle us out with our dinner practically still in our throat. We do not plan to return.
In rating the food, below, we called it "average." That is itself an average - a few were excellent, one was terrible, some were pretty good. Overall, for the price we expected much better quality.
