Three of us went on a Friday around 6:30pm - place was busy but service was quick. We had the special appetizer (shrimp&lobster ravioli) and calamari. My favorite was definitely the calamari - it's tossed w greens (cilantro - yum) in a spicy citrus vinaigrette so it doesn't feel as heavy as the standard fried calamari w tartar sauce deal. For entree, we had the mahi mahi (special) on potatato pancake w bok choy, the pott roast w mashed potatoes & brussel sprouts, and the scallops w mushroom risotto. Mahi mahi had a nice spicy ""crust"" but potato pancake could have been a bit more flavorful. The pott roast was definitely tender melt in your mouth but the flavor was not as complex as it could have been. (a tad too sweet and bbq sauce flavor one dimensional). The scallops were seared very nicely but the mushroom risotto was a bit grainy and bland. Overall pretty descent though (i'm just picky). We did notice that the dishes were not as salty as at other restaurants - which is probably a good thing, although that may have contributed to our perception of the dishes being a bit bland. The desserts were GREAT! We had the lemon chess tart (very nice flavor, not too tart, none of that chemically corn starchy texture of commercially available lemon tarts, and the unsweetened whipped heavy cream was a nice suprise. The apple strudel had very nice apple flavor - again, none of that over-sticky cornstarchy apple pie filling texture. The flaky phillo dough was a nice compliment to the apples and the vanilla bean icecream and caramel sauce topped off the already great dessert. Our server was attentive and friendly. The only drawback was the close proximity to the ""bar area"" where people were allowed to smoke. My friend is pregnant and there was a baby at the table next to us. The intermittent wafts of cigarette smoke almost ruined our beautiful dessert moments. The place is more of a restaurant than a bar so I don't know why they need to allow people to smoke.
Pros: fresh ingredients, great dessert, attentive service
Cons: smokers in bar area, slightly bland as a whole, parking difficult
