Visited Ounce for the first time last night. Overall the experience was good, but for the cost I would have expected more.
We started with appetizers and soup. We split the Lobster cocktail and a bowl of lobster bisque. The lobster cocktail was excellent - and they didn't skimp on the amount of lobster. It was excellent and came with a mix of cocktail and horse radish. The lobster bisque was good but I will say I was disappointed that there literally was 2 pieces of lobster in the bowl of bisque.
For our main meal, we of course had the steaks. At the table we had a ribeye and a 12 oz. filet. We also shared sides of the macaroni and cheese and a baked potato. The steaks were cooked perfectly, I will say I was somewhat disappointed in the quality/taste of the meat. At $45 on average I would have expected the meat to melt in my mouth and it didn't. The sides we good, but I must call out that the macaroni and cheese was some of the best I've had. And I'm a mac and cheese aficionado.
We were full so no dessert.....
Our waiter Rico was excellent - took great care of us and made good suggestions.
A few things I think that are important to note:
first this is a nice restaurant and they stage their service accordingly - we were not rushed at any stage of our meal - however some guest may find the time between courses a bit long. For us this was nice - we were able to take our time enjoying our meal and didn't have one plate taken simply to have the next immediately appear.
Second - I don't know if this was an anomaly but there were small gnats all around our table. we couldn't figure out where they were coming from but swatted quite a few. This is something I would not expect from a nice restaurant - but given this was my only visit I don't know if it is a usual occurrence or a one off.
This was a good meal, but I will say that with a bill including a bottle of wine and a tip at right around $300 for 2 people, this wasn't worth it.
