The restaurant was recommended and has good reviews, but we found it lacking in a few important ways. We asked our server about wine recommendations. She wasn't knowledgeable at all though she did split the vin doux for us so we could both have a little with the fois gras. Presentation was another problem. The fois gras looked as if it had been plopped out of a can onto the plate. The garnish was minimal and unexciting. We ordered the pintade, it had to be for two, unexceptional and under-seasoned. My dessert, the poached pear, looked and tasted bland. My husband made a better choice. The ambiance is lovely, but there are other places on the river that in my opinion, serve better food. There weren't many customers. Is that a clue?
