I was planning on going to Union Pacific for Valentine's Day, until I called to confirm my reservations and they informed me that they would charge my credit card if I cancelled after Thursday (is that legal?). Then they told me that they were only offering a limited selection prix-fix menu. The reason we wanted to go there in the first place is because we read about a wonderful sounding entree in a review, and sure enough this entree, or anything even remotely similar, was not offered on their "special Valentine's Day menu." In addition, the prix fix meal was in excess of $70, not incuding tax, tip or drink. I am not cheap, and will gladly pay whatever it costs for a great meal, but this place has not proven itself or have a reputation warranting such steep prices.

Now to the point of this post:
I cancelled my reservation at Union Pacific, and made a last minute reservation at Molyvos. This place has a great P.R. machine, I read about it in every conceivable magazine. But I would like to know from any fellow Chowhounds who have been there what they think, and any recommended dishes. Thanks.
