We went there, a party of three last Thursday, about 5:00pm. There were maybe 10 other occupied tables at the restaurant with many waitstaff scrambling about, in and out of the kitchen, most times carrying one or no dishes. We were promptly seated and the table remained empty while we perused the menus, no water, no bread, no nothing.
After ten minutes a waiter appeared and took our orders and left. Still nothing for the table. Another 10 minutes passed and I requested water and bread. Water arrived as well as three small rolls with three pats of butter. We quickly devoured the rolls. Nothing was replenished unless requested, sadly enough.
The food itself fared better. Two of us ordered wood grilled tuna which , in the menu, is described a served medium rare unless otherwise requested. It turned out to be more medium than the menu indicated, but was good, nevertheless.The steamers at $11.00 proved devoid of sand and fine tasting. So,too, were the clam chowder and other fish dishes.
Were it not for for the poor attention given us, I would have enjoyed the meal. As could be predicted, our waiter took on aura of attentiveness as he delivered the bill. I limited my tip to 15%.
