Nothing exciting and overpriced. Four of us went on Friday and it was ok - but not really anything special. Mainly it was overpiced for what it was. The Lounge singer was super loungie - pretty dull music. Most of the food was ok. The lamb shank was very good - tender and flavorful and a good sized portion. The chorizo and croutons appetizer was strange: it was like three pieces of sausage and a plate of croutons. The garlic shrimp appetizer was bland (shell on and grilled - very red but no distinctive flavor) as was the salmon dinner.

Also - the waitstaff could use some training. We waited 20 minutes before she took our drink order. We ordered oysters which were fresh but they came with a celery, instead of cocktail sauce, topping. The celery was too strong and totally masked the flavor of the oysters. We asked for cocktail sauce and we first got hot wing sauce and then got habenero tabasco. Unsure if they do not know what horseradish or cocktail sauce is - but? And, finally, she ordered the wrong dessert. Result: one dessert came out and then about 20 minutes later the second one came out. No apology and no comp.

Sum total (three entres, three appetizers and two desserts w/1-2 cocktails each): $200 w/o tip.
