Mediocrity in Wellesley

I went to The Cottage Wellesley last night with group of former co-workers.

The good:

Beautiful Bar, spacious seating, attentive staff, great service.
The appetizers were excellent, Chorizo & Shrimp Quesadillas and Ahi Tuna Nachos.

The mediocre:
The main courses, Rosemary Grilled Shrimp, Sesame Sea Scallops. The food tasted good enough, good not excellent, but the portions were small considering the price.

The bad:
The drinks were simply atrocious. I ordered a manhattan, the bartender couldn't find the bourbon, almost mixed it with dry vermouth (they only had Martini & Rossi) and it was small and watery.

Overall I can't recommend. I wouldn't go back for dinner. Returning for appetizers while sitting in the lounge would be an option if they replaced and/or trained their bar staff. However, if your a beer or wine drinker go for the appetizers.
