I had the brussel sprouts, as well as the scallops. The Brussels were good, but a tad on the sweet side. Loved the scallops but could do without the pate type portion that sat in the middle. It was visually unappetizing and didn't add to...More

Party of 8. Food was tasteless and served at room temperature. Waitstaff took food orders, delivered food orders, otherwise invisible. Pricing-$30 plus 20% mandatory service charge for 1/2 cup of lentils and duck breast about the size of my thumb is outrageous even by local...More
