We tried the "Impromptu" Tasting Menu, which promised a, "6 course menu of surprises." There were no surprises, as everything we were served appeared on the regular menu. Sweetbreads were, by far, the dish they did best. The lamb and beef ribeye were both passable, but uninspired. Obviously the kitchen has better skills with meat, as the swordfish and cobia were both poorly delivered, the former being overly salty (and I LIKE salt). Sauce on the octopus was tasty, but the octopus itself was tough and flavorless. The eggplant was over-spiced and pasty. By far the worst dish of the evening was a pasta with sunflower seeds. The pasta was too thick and undercooked, and the filling totally flavorless. We did enjoy the dessert of roasted pineapple with lime custard - tangy and not too sweet.
Their presentations are artistic, a treat for the eye, which only raises your expectations, then proceeds to dash them when you taste the food. Their wine list is criminally over-priced. Two or two and a half times retail is fair, but most of their bottles are double that.
Service is less-than-stellar, with a lot of attitude not backed up by any particular skills. Pretension is the byword for this place. It's an affectation of haute cuisine without delivery. Seek your gastronomic satisfaction elsewhere. Dinner for 4, with wine, came to $600, and it wasn't worth it.
