Chose this place as it was fairly close to our hotel and it had gotten decent reviews but all in all it was a less than stellar experience. We arrived for our 630pm reservation and chose to sit on the patio as it was a lovely evening. A duo was playing there (bass and guitar) and were the highlight of our dinner. We were the only patrons for quite a while which was a bit disconcerting and our waiter was blasé but was friendly enough.
After a very nice sparkling brut rose, bread and butter was brought to the table: butter was great but the bread!! NOT good. When it is so easy to provide good, crusty, fresh baked bread, why they would serve such tasteless fluff I have no idea.
It set a tone of mediocrity and the meal didn't really recover, sadly.
We ordered several starters: my sweet potato soup was pretty tasty but they served it in such a huge bowl it was a bit overwhelming. My husband's fried oysters on kale was good, he said, altho the slaw they served with it was overly acidic. Next up was a salad for me which purportedly had "almonds,arugula and Parmesan". If there were any of those in there they were microscopic. And,again, dressing thin and too acidic. It was a $3 salad at best and not worth my time. My husband had a shrimp and grits appetizer then and the presentation was horrible. It looked to be a generic deep fried hockey puck of a "grits cake" smothered in some unappealing, un identifiable dark green sauce. He ate it but was not impressed.
Still hungry we were lured in by the "cheese plate" that was ridiculous. $14 for two tiny pieces each of St.Agur and some "Bulgarian sheeps cheese" that tasted basically like a generic Swiss. The "accompaniments" were tasteless and disappointing also: pickled mushrooms and onions,jam, all very weak.
OY. The best part if this restaurant is the ambiance and their musical duo. Otherwise, very overpriced and not worth the visit.
