Artie's in City Island--Not Worth It

neddludd | May 5, 2008 09:39 AM

On basis of previous posts and 22 food rating on Zagat, went with my family yesterday to Artie's.

I don't understand high ratings. Sirloin steak was not of good quality. Crab cake was bready. Calimari was overcooked. So were vegetables. My wife reports one generic red sauce for everything. Home-made baklava was boring. Menu sounds better than what actually comes out of kitchen. Won't be back there again.

In addition, as opposed to a place like Portofino, no view of water or City Island.
