I have learned the secret to a good meal at Raleigh's newest upscale restaurant: Avoid the place on weekends!We (5 of us)recently had dinner on a Sat.PM and not only was the food just okay,the band was so loud we were yelling at each other.We love music, especially jazz, but drum solos over dinner.... Despite requests to the staff to kindly turn it down a little, nothing changed. And as we left, we told the hostess that the food was fine, and the band very good, but it was too loud for dinner. She shrugged. However, we've had fab meals during the week when it wasn't so crowded and there is no band! Good luck!
