I was excited to try this place since I have tried one of the sister restaurants in Boston and I had heard good things. Relatives were in from out of town so it seemed a good choice. Some of the food was really outstanding, and some was just OK. We each had three courses and I would say half of us were happy with each course. I had the Salmon Tartar appetizer which I thought was really outstanding. My main course of Branzino was really just average. Someone else had Dover Sole and found it equally uninspiring. For dessert I tried the Belgium Chocolate Sorbet. This was the richest and most flavorful non-dairy chocolate I have ever had. As someone who is allergic to milk, I try a lot of alternative desserts and this one was quite noteworthy, even according to the milk eaters who tried a small taste.
The price is high, which is OK when the food meets expectations, but with the mixed review on the main meals, it's a little harder to accept.
The service was also very odd. We went through periods of extremely attentive service followed by long droughts where no one came by. Our three course meal lasted over 3 hours, which I didn't mind since I enjoyed the company, but that is quite a while. Dessert was particularly frustrating because it came out piece-meal from the kitchen.
I'm glad I tried it, but I probably won't return for a full meal. If I do, I will sit at the bar and eat the Chocolate Sorbet!
