My wife & I ate here for the first time with another couple who go here frequently. The drinks were very good, the appitizers were also very good (we shared crab cake, calamari and meatballs). The food for 3 out of 4 of us was very good (scallops, pork loin special of the day, meatballs w/ raviloi) and one good (the pad tai). The service was 8 out of 10(which I consider almost excellent). The problem was the noise level. I know and understand that any place with a bar can get noisy, but this was outrageous. I am not an old fudyduty but this was so loud I could not hear the people at my own table even with almost shouting. It was not a pleasant experience and even though we liked the food I will not go back.
