“Terrible Service, Never got our food after 1.5 hours of waiting”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Title of review says it all. Ordered, rec'd our soup starters and then proceeded to wait for 1.5 hours before getting pissed and walking out after telling them why we were walking out. Waiter studiously ignored us even though we flagged him down 3x to ask where our main courses were, to which he would say 'it will be just a few minutes' or 'having some issues in the kitchen, I'm just the frontline'. Never bothered to fill our glasses with water while waiting, no stopping by to update, no nothing. Worst part was that we observed at least 3 tables get their food before us and they had arrived after us ! We weren't making a scene and enjoying our discussions with our friends but never will we go there again and do not recommend you go there either.

“Good eats...will be back!”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

Made reservations through open table so had no issues with getting a table. Do so or you might not get in for dinner! Busy! Busy!

Calamari was fresh and seasoned well. Went very well with lime citrus sauce.

Husband still raving about how the short ribs were so tasty tender with the dark sauce and the kicked version of mashed potatoes.

I see why the sable fish and pork belly received the silver award! Not usually a fan of pork belly but this was good...crunchy crusted morsels flavored just right accompanied the Alaskan cod in the green lime Asian notes sauce....think same sauce used for the calamari.

So full that we had no room for dessert....lucky because it was full house and the waitress didn't return for 15 minutes. The other minor glitch was that they forgot to give us side plates for the appetizer...waitress did notice us moving the plate back and forth and then brought them.

We did enjoy the food and would definitely be back when we are back in town.

We were slightly behind schedule for our reservation, they got bent out of shape about it and then we spend 2.5 hours there trying to get food....
