Was in Harvard Square last PM with the kids and thought this would be a fun place to go. The concept of picking one's own ingredients and sauces was certainly interesting, but the execution was lacking. Raw ingredients looked fantastic but the seafood was overcooked by the time that the veggies were ready and the sauces were only OK. My fussy 1 year old certainly enjoyed walking around and watching the grill, however. It is interesting to go to a restaurant where it is your fault if the food combinations aren't great.

The drinks were fair. Chocolate martini was not well balanced but the blueberry-lemon margarita was refreshing.

Chocolate fondue was a messy, sticky, delicious dessert. Served with chunks of apple, banana, orange and sponge cake, as well as marshmellows, all to be dipped in a dark, rich chocolate sauce. I would have liked a wider variety of fruit, but the kids seemed happy.

My wife objected to having to see the raw food before cooking. Although she was originally a farm girl, she objects to any association between the animal and the food.

Probably won't go back.
