Colborne Lane over-rated?

Does anyone else think that Colborne Lane is over-rated? I certainly don't think it warrants being rated on of the best restaurants in the En Route magazine! After waiting almost 4 hours for a tasting menu of 10 tiny dishes, I left there feeling very hungry and not satisfied at all. My partner waited 2.5 hours to receive her halibut. Granted timing the a la carte order with my tasting menu was a bit tricky but 2.5 hours???!!! And all the freeze dried powders accompanying the dishes was not at all interesting. As far as I am concerned, freeze dried food should be left for camping....
Not to be entirely negative, the restaurant was warm and had great interior decor. The mushroom soup was divine but serving sizes were really not adequate for the price you pay. I'd be interested in what others think of this trendy place.....
