We arrived for our reservations and were promptly seated. Yet, after that, service was disorganized and somewhat disinterested. We were served water, bread brought to the table, waitress gave us menus. Then, about 15 minutes later, our drink orders were taken. We ordered wine and appetizers and they finally arrived. From being seated to the drinks and appetizers arriving was about 45 minutes. Our daughter ordered the soup which we all tried and all agreed was tasteless. The rest of the appetizers -- five in total - were good to excellent but the portion sizes were laughably small. Maybe we're the fools for paying these prices but I would think the restaurant would be somewhat embarrassed too! The main courses were uniformly very good and the portion sizes of the soft-shelled crab and the pasta were fine. Two of us had grouper, one had duck. The portion sizes were on the small side but acceptable and should have been served with some vegetable. We ordered side dishes the minute we saw the portion size and the sides -- all excellent -- were delivered promptly. Also, somewhat surprising for a fine restaurant, servers did not know who ordered what and "auctioned" off the food when it came to the table. Desserts were very good but the cheese platter we ordered was a disappointment. Small (though very tasty) cheese portions indifferently put on a plate with a few crackers. No sides of fruit, jams, honey or other items we have seen on cheese platters at fine restaurants.
Our conclusion: no need to return to the restaurant. Enjoyed most of the food some of which was excellent with a few big disappointments, very disappointed with portion sizes and service was disorganized and somewhat indifferent even though the place was not filled.
