OK at best

The full review is posted on our blog (http://bit.ly/1FyVJp) but overall this was just an okay experience.

The food was really good in some spots and very bad in others. The noise level is very high, but not unbearable. Service was decent.

The wine list is average, with pretty good pricing but leans towards the high end.

We’ll give it another try at some point.

Beef Tartare

 

Wasabi seared yellowfin tuna

 

Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes

Lots of crab meat, with minimal filling… perfect!

Miso glazed Chilean sea bass

Way overcooked with undercooked bok choy side… how much worse could it get?

Sorry? What? I couldn't hear you...

The restaurant is exceptionally loud as there are no full walls. The loud bar area is divided from the restaurant by only a ½ wall, just like you find at Bennigans. Doors are left open looking directly out onto the street as the traffic rumbles by. The overall effect makes it difficult to have a nice dinner & actually hear the other guests at your table.
