WILD COHO -- lukewarm

Was in Pt Townsend over the weekend and very eager to try Wild Coho, a leader in the "slow food" movement. Uptown from the main strip of PT, WC occupies a lovely old building and feels, if a bit overly lit, warm and snug. But enough about the setting, on to the food.
My companion started off with a very nice salad with gorg, walnuts, etc. Good. I had a variation of a caprese, with the additions being sweet snap peas and walla walla sweets. Not bad, but I expected more flavor from the tomatos. Good.
For an entree, my date ordered the pork with apples in some sorta balsamic glaze with scalloped taters. She loved it, but the portion was huge. Very good - Excellent.
I ordered the daily special, medallions of halibut and salmon with a caper/holandaisse sauce resting on a bed of onions and bell peppers. Only problem is, I'm alergic to bell peppers and the server failed to mention them.
This was unfortunate as we all know that you can take the peppers off of a dish, but you cannot take the peppers out of a dish. Damnation!
The server once filled our wineglasses, and even tho he was busy not filling our win glasses, he didn't have the time to inquire after the ever-growing mound of bell peppers at the side of our plate. Service was slow in general and rather lacking in those small details that serve to elevate the dining experience.

too bad, as this place certainly does have some potential.

oh -- one more thing, while the wine list is not extensive, it is reasonable. had an Eyrie pinot gris for around 25 bucks.
