Went there based on sample menu posted on the internet. Bad omen when web-site no longer exists the day of the reservation. We went on 4/20/07 and were informed that the new chef was ""tweaking"" the menu and figuring out what was working and what wasn't. Appetizers: Tuna two ways (lightly seared and tartar) - so-so presentation with a non-descript wasabe sauce on the seared ahi, tartar was plain with an overly spicy dressing that overwhelmed the taste of the ahi. The portobello mushroom was much better - a nice combination of meat and cheese filling. So, 1-for-2, and we were ready for the specials. We ordered the two specials of the night - sea bass encrusted with almonds on a bed of lobster rissoto, and the duck confit with buttered gnocchi. Sea bass was prepared nicely, but the rissoto was too cheesy and you could not taste the lobster. No color to the plate - would have been nice to have some greens. My duck was not memorable - too many stewed sour cherries, the gnocci was doughy, heavy, and overwhelmed the duck, the best part was the steamed spinach. Bread served with the house olive-hummus was actually the best part of the entire meal. Sommelier (or the gentleman attempting to pass himself off as one) offered no suggestions, and our server knew nothing about wine. We ended up ordering two glasses (a pleasant white and okay red). Very disappointed - will not go back.
Pros: Potential, and an extensive wine list
Cons: New chef, new menu...not working.
