I feel guilty! I so want to love this place - it has such a nice feel, friendly staff and valiant attempts at interesting food, but it just didn't do it for me. I ordered a roasted lamb shank, and it was fabulous - succulent, fall of the bone - all that stuff...and the seasoning was great. But it was served with potato/zucchini latkes that were terrible. The combination of of the latkes with the lamb just didn't work, and the flavor of the latkes themselves were just off. My daughter ordered a vegetarian tagine dish - it was served over lemon couscous. The couscous was fab (it would have been great with the lamb!), but the vegetables were mushy and and odd combo with the couscous. We both started with a house salad that was topped with candied pecans, but they were a overly peppery and the balsamic dressing was creamy, way too cold, and came on the side in a plastic cup. The dessert was chocolate cake - not gooey as the menu stated, but the waiter was kind enough to add the dollop of whipped cream I requested, so I'll get over it! I probably will go back - I feel I need to give it a second chance, just because I think the potential is there and I may really hit on something fab!
