We've been wanting to go since At Vermilion opened. Heard about and had seen the space... just lovely. Had heard and read mixed reviews, but wanted to try such an interesting menu... figured that not all people enjoy fusion.
We went a week ago, on a weeknight. Only a few tables were occupied. It's a nice space, and large. With all the empty tables we wondered how long this will last (could be slow due to holiday week?) By the time the food came it was clear this place is in trouble.
The food was just awful and disappointing. We got the red meat tasting menu, a few appetizers, and lots of sides, so had a good variety to sample. The appetizers were tasty, but the rest just wasn't good. And we really wanted to like it!
On the plus side, the service was above par, so we didn't hate our experience entirely, just the food.
Pros: nice space and service
