My wife and I used a Groupon here ($30 total for the Fixed Price menu rather than $30pp). That certainly gives excellent value and on the basis that nearly everyone seemed to have a coupon, this place is thriving (or at least surviving) on the coupon business. You can tell they get a lot of business this way as they ask you if you have a coupon and then direct you to the limited fixed price menu.
There's been a lot of comment about the service which I would agree is attentive but in a strange way. There are 3 waiters for what is a small restaurant with around 12 tables. You can tell which one of them is in charge as he loudly goes about his business, often barking demands at his co-workers and on one occasion, berating one of them in front of Customers after he had made a mistake. At times this reminded me of a Gordon Ramsey kitchen nightmares episode - it was at times amusing. You got a sense that the attentiveness is driven by the 'leader' driving the fear of God into his staff to make sure that everything is perfect.
As for the food - $15 per head was exceptional value. The standard price would be expensive for the quality of food. For appetizer, I had the fried feta salad which was fine, not great but OK. My wife had the soup - again OK. For Entree, I had the chicken breast in cumin sauce which I enjoyed. My wife had the flounder which was oily - it was supposed to come with grits but my wife substituted for fries - they werent great either. We both had flambe for dessert - nice.
We shared a bottle of white sauvignon blanc wine - arrived cold but not in a cooler so rapidly warmed towards room temperature.
Don't get me wrong, this place was OK and I'm sure will have lots of regular business from locals. The Groupon pricing makes it good value but it had a strange atmosphere and didn't make me want to return even though they gave us a voucher at the end for 25% off at the next visit.
