Corton- expectations not met

I was so excited to enjoy my birthday dinner at Corton. With so many rave reviews and 4 stars I didn't think I could go wrong. Sadly, I have a few grievances. First the $35 supplement for the truffle pasta- the noodles only tasted like gouda. There were truffle pieces but nothing tasted like truffle. I said something to the wait staff and they took it off the bill. Next I had the beef. The sirloin was a little over cooked and honestly I feel like I got a better piece of meat at Trader Joes. Overall the portions were very small. We had to eat bread to feel full. The desserts were so-so. The brioche was like old french taste. Overall the service was attentive and gracious, but the food was lacking. We had a lovely tasting menu the week before at Dovetail that was much better and the next day a superb rack of lamb at Commerce. I would spend your hard earned mone somewhere else. Corton is overrated.
