The crabmeat, that is. The Queen ordered the Capellini Alla Positano (spaghetti with crabmeat). For $27, there was hardly even a sliver of crabmeat. And the pasta wasn't good either. The KIng ordered the chicken parm, but was served the veal parm instead. Not a big deal of a difference except that it illustrates the noise level of this place to the point where the waiter most likely did not hear the order clearly. Don't be afraid to ask if you're not sure!
We visited this place with our friends who are Avalon residents. They brought the wine with them, but I left with the wine on me, not in me since the King doesn't even consume the stuff. Not sure why the waiter did not leave the cork with the bottle but we requested a replacement cork which the busboy tried to insert at which time he spilled half of the what was left on me. No problemo, but it would have been nice if the waiter or manager offered some assistance, which they didn't.
Why was this place so busy? My guess is because there are a lack of dining options in Avalon and patrons go there by default.
Only positive thing I can say is that the waiter brought out a complimentary desert for the four of us to share, before the wine incident occurred. The only explanation for this that we can figure is that the waiter was trying to make amends for the obvious dissatisfaction that we had with our dinners. The King enjoyed the desert immensely as it was the best part of the dinner.
Bottom line - too pricey, too noisy, too messy for us. Next time we'll go to Tony's in Atlantic City for a pizza.
