I've tried this restaurant several times thinking I had chosen an off night and continue to be disappointed. The service isn't great. The food is mediocre and priced way too high for what it is.

The evening we were there was plagued by computer problems, but the food and service were wonderful so our experience was undiminished. In particular, the smoked salmon in the gazpacho was an eye-opener! We left very happy and satisfied.

I had the drunked snow crab and I must say it may have been the best flavored crab I've had! The white wine sauce with tomatoes was outstanding and kept the crab hot while eating. Also tried the oysters Rockefeller which were good also.
