Disappointment at Village Fish

Went this weekend based on recommendations from this board. The place had a funky vibe, with many blackboard specials, so I was getting optimistic as soon as we entered (wrong).

For appetizers, I had the fried calamari and my wife had the calamari scampi. Both were overcooked and rubbery. The dipping sauce for the fried calamari was bland.

For entrees, I had the seafood fra diavolo and my wife had the mesquite grilled monkfish. The monkfish had no mesquite taste, and looked like it had been poached, not grilled. The fra diavolo was big on portion but small on flavor. The runny sauce tasted like Franco American with a dash of Tabasco, with not enough of it to go around. The calamari in this dish was also overcooked.
