Laurel, last night

I knew this place was going to be hit or miss based on previous reviews; unfortunately, for me, it was a miss...martinis were not great (heavy on the fruit juice), my steak (NY strip) arrived very rare (I ordered medium) and was curiously lacking in flavor and very tough. As seems to be more & more commonplace, we had to flag down the server to let her know it was not cooked to order (what happened to the check-in-after-the-first-bite rule that I always followed during my 10+ years of waitressing?). The fries, while tasty, were not crisp, as if they had been waiting under the heat lamp while the steak was prepared. DC liked his cornmeal-crusted sea bass, my one bite had a very fishy taste. It isn't a place I would return to...and I am disappointed because I really wanted to like it!
