Restaurant, part of the 25 for $25 promotion, was not staffed to handle the crowd on a Wednesday night. Basically there was one waitress to handle all the tables (there also appeared to be a waiter who was non functional). Also, they apparantly do a 1/2 price wine list on Wednesdays. The waitress was very cordial and tried hard but was just overwhelmsed.

Now for the food. Hungarian Goulash was good but not note worthy. Grilled Venison with port wine pepper sauce was the best I've ever had but the asiago sage polenta was a clump of corn meal on the plate. Ahi Tuna Tartar was excellent. We had to return Pan Seared Oysters as they were served cold with chunks of salt in the shell (meant to be underneath). The Silky Chocolate Pie was not great.

It was clear the owner and chef were not there that night. To the restaurants credit they they comped us the bottle of wine we had and did not charge for the oysters. Left the waitress a very generous tip as it was clearly not her fault.
