OK, is it just me or is the atmosphere at Dandylion so contrived

that it becomes distracting?

I thought that the food was very well prepared. In fact, the mussels were some of the best I've ever had. For that matter the shepherd's pie was also outstanding. Oh and our server was efficient and personable.

But there was just a really weird vibe at the venue. There was a simply enormous staff. Everyone who interacted with us was welcoming and helpful but there were more of them than there were customers. They've gone too far with the old pub decor but each of these things taken individually is just not that big of a deal.

I suppose the reason I've written this is that usually when the food is as good as that we're anxious to return but instead the verdict was Great but we aren't in any hurry to return.
