Just returned from our second visit to this new place. The food is fantastic. However the service is terrible.(on both occasions) Had to wait a 1/2 hour for our reservation.

The waitress was beyond help...had to ask for water, bread and silverware. Had to share our silverware as she apparently forgot us. No attention to any of our needs. Very very slow...Additionally, wine service was beyond slow. Too bad as the food really is on a par with any place in the area. However they shant see us again.

One would think they would train their waitstaff better, as prices are high.

Much much better in the area is Cafe Routier in Westbrook or Gabrielle's in Centerbrook. Both have great food and great service.
