we had brunch here on the weekend, having heard that this restaurant was quite good. the seafood was very tasty - the crabcakes are made from Chesapeake crab (which are slightly sweeter), and hold up very well to a plethora of choices for sauce. the oysters were also very good. you can order "regular" brunch items, as well as sandwiches during brunch, so there is something for everyone. the service was attentive, but not intrusive. since the restaurant was half empty when we went, it would be hard to judge what service would be like if the place was buzzing. there is decent selection of wine, beer, and "brunch drinks" available.
where the place suffers is from its atmosphere and ambiance. this i would attribute to construction all around the place - the entrance makes it seem like you are entering a tent set up for someone's wedding, and there is absolutely no view of any of the sculptures around. the construction also make the place drafty. i can see where this place could be a 5 once all the construction is finished, but then a picker person could rate this place as a 3 (fine food in a rough location at high prices for a tent like atmosphere) in its current state. a rating of 4 is a good saw off.
if you wait a while until all the construction is over, i am sure that you will find a much finer restaurant than this temporary experience.
