Went to dinner tonight with two DC's, had the Pho Max soup and Tuna Tataki as apps. Both were OK For entrees, we had Lobster Pad Thai, Chicken Paillard and Laquered Duck Breast - good chunks of lobster meat in the pad thai, moist chicken and OK duck. My main issue is the price points for such a confused menu. We clarified with the server that the cuisine is "South Asian w/ Northern Italian" - huh??? All of our entrees were just OK - the accompaniment with the duck breast was Chinese take-out quality. I passed one of the chef's on the way back from the restroom, he asked how the meal was and I said "Eh, it was OK". The maitre'd came over moments later and asked for specifics - the problem was, it just wasn't that good - nothing specific to note actually - everything was cooked properly, etc., we just didn't like it. To me, this is kind of the worst case scenario - it's not like they could have hired new servers or redecorated - their basic vision for the restaurant is just . . . off.
