Went last night w/o reservations (early) and they 3 of us right away. After tons of positve reviews we were really anxious to try this place (2 drove up from Newport for our quarterly Girls' Night Out).

Everyone ordered same salad: butter lettuce w/white anchovies. Dressing was totally saturating the lettuce and almost unbearable. came with mini grilled cheese which was the best part of the entire night.

Two ordered chicken w/some goat cheese cannolli. So damn salty that it overpowered whatever flavor there was. Cannolli was uninspiring---I love cheese and only had a small bite as it did nothing for me. Third person ordered John Dory, which she said was totally dry. No one finished their meal. I can EAT and even I barely got through half of it.

Dessert: Shared the following---cheese plate (very good as we picked our own 2 cheeses), pumpkin mousee tart (I'm a pumpkin freak and this was good, but not good enough for me to devour it all), infamous gourmet donut served with a yummy ice cream. OMG--it was so well, just BLAH, and believe me I CAN EAT and love just about anything sweet. Had two small bites and I was done.

Green Tea-wonderful; they get it from SerendipiTEA in NYC as the busboy shared.

With bottle of $90 wine, bill came to just under $300 before tip.
Won't go back--I guess we just went on an off night but it was so not worth the $$$.

As I always like to end on a positive note, I will say the service was SUPERB and friendly. The decor is so well done that I took down a few sketches for a remodel I'm working on. I'd be curious to know the architect/designer as it was superbly done.
