My boyfriend and I went there on our two year anniversary. The decor is great and the atmosphere is very stylish but warm. The hostess was friendly and the waiter greeted us promptly and informed us that they were out of tuna (good to know before looking at the menu). There was only one dinner special, which seemed a bit odd. My boyfriend ordered the calamari off of the menu and the dinner special, which was an 18 ounce rib-eye, twice baked potato, and haricots vertes(green beans). I ordered the shrimp tempura and the scallop entree off of the menu (served with black truffle risotto). The appiziters came out in a good amount of time - enough for us to talk a bit without feeling rushed, but not long enough where we were wondering when they would be served. My shrimp was excellent, but my boyfriend's calamari was fishy and rubbery. We couldn't finish it between the two of us, which is beyond unusual for us. Our entrees also followed in a good amount of time. My scallop dish was bland to the point where I was looking around for salt (which I almost never add to any dish). The risotto was good, but also a bit on the bland side. My boyfriend's steak was cooked perfectly and initially he said it tasted good, but then noticed that it had a terrible smell to it. His sentiments were that the steak itself smelled like body odor, to be honest. I work at a rather good restaurant in Chester, NJ, and know that sometimes cumin can produce that sort of smell (the waiter had mentioned anything about cumin though, if that was even what it was). It got to the point that my boyfriend could not finish his steak and certainly did not want to take it home. My tiramisu for dessert was yummy, but not outstanding. The bill was a surprise, as prices on the menu were reasonable ($7-11 for apps, $20-25 for entrees, $3-7 for desserts) but the price of the special was outrageous: $38! (at ""my"" restaurant, an 18oz Cowboy Ribeye is $26.00!) We were not impressed overall and will not be going back.
Pros: Ambience, Friendly Staff
Cons: Bland and Unappetizing Food, Price Gouging on Specials
