Had dinner last Saturday night and will not be rushing back, at least not for the entrees. Started with a selection of oysters on the half shell and seared scallops with greens; both were excellent. Entrees were skate and crab cakes; both were over cooked to the dry point ( or left uner the heat lamp too long). We sent them back and ordered another seared scallops (interesting this one had three scallops vs. two on the first order, maybe the kitchen was trying to make ammends) and a crepe. The scallops were great again but the crepe which was folded into a square was once again dry. The crepe reminded me of a quesadilla. The deserts were good if not great.

The restaurant was empty so there was no excuse for the poor preparation. On the plus side the service was excellent and the manager came over to express concern. Also, they comped us some items from the bill and gave us a second dessert free.

I ordered off the prix fixe menu which included items off the regular menu including the scallops and the skate. As I recall it was a reasonalbe $35.for three courses.
