I can't say how disappointed I was to have a bland, overpriced meal with bad service at the Grocery. I've heard good things about this place for years and was ready to pony up a lot of cash to dine here for a special occasion. The tiny space was full for dinner, so I expected a decent wait for food. I did not expect, however, to wait over an hour for our entrees, or for them to be either tasteless (Monkfish) or candy-sweet (Venison). As nice as the waitress was, it seemed so odd that when, as hungry as I was, I simply couldn't eat a bland plate of fish and left it nearly full in front of me, and the waitress didn't ask whether it was ok or if she could have gotten me something else. She walked by several times when our wine glasses were empty and didn't ask if we wanted to order another glass. This whole time the chef kept popping out to hang with people he knew a few tables away, but didn't bother to stop at our table until the meal was over (and didn't ask how it was). I asked for the check 3 times (in a place with ten tables) before I got it, and when we got up to leave in the middle of a blizzard, the waitress stared at us blankly before asking if she had our coats! You think?! Such a shame to drop $180 for two (without dessert and only a half bottle of wine) for lame service and bland food.
Pros: can't think of any
Cons: Service, Price, Food (in that order)
