Has anyone been to the Broad Axe Tavern lately?

My husband and I have a very rare date night planned for this Saturday and while I want to be a bit more adeventurous, he wants to stay closer to home and suggested going to the Broad Axe, given its Valentine's weekend its actually one of the few restaurants with a reservation available at a normal dinner time (not sure if thats a good sign or not). Back when they first opened, there were a number of mixed reviews (trending towards the negative) about the place. Has anyone been lately? I wonder if it got beter? Since we so rarely get to go out just the two of us I want to make sure we have a good experience!

Since he wants to stay local, there are a number of other good spots I want to try - Parc Bistro, Radice, Brasserie 73, Roadhouse, etc. - but all are booked at the times we need!

Want to stay up to date with this post?
