We fall in the “loved the old menu” camp. Service was great and the new sea bass was very good, but that was literally the only thing on the new menu that I wanted to try. Sadly, we won’t be back.More

Excellent service, but new menu with very little variety. Went specifically for the calamari which has been taken off the menu. Server suggested crab croquettes instead. Very little crab and made with curry. (Hard to find a dish without curry.). Portions are very small and...More

Clearly, the servers seemed overwhelmed during Restaurant Week. It also was very expensive, spent $218 for two people for dinner, no bottles of wine or anything! There are just too many silly supplements so do not think you can get a dinner here for $35....More
