I know a lot of people don't think too highly of this place, but I had a different experience there last night.
I agree that the actual space is not very good. The decor is very bland and having to go down the hallway, by the gym to go to the restroom is almost unacceptable.
That said, my wife and I found the food and the service to be quite good. For apps, we had the lobster capachio and oysters on the half shell. Both were great but I loved the originality of the lobster. For our main course, we had the lamb with goat cheese ravioli and the peppered rare tuna. Again, both dishes were wonderful.
I think the food makes this place worth a visit. From how many people were there, I think others might agree with me.
