Mix: good but a little disappointed

If you're going there for the wild boar, they don't have it and will not have it for several weeks. I had made a reservation specificallly to try the boar, and had been told they would have it, but they did not. The waiter handled it pretty well and comped a couple glasses of wine at the end to compensate but still it was disappointng. We did enjoy our food tho. Our foie gras was very nice, simple and served with toast points. I thought it could have been gussied up a little more but it was ok. For mains we had the rabbit--best rabbit I've ever had! and the seafood cataplana. It's a nice dish but the sauce is SO rich. And our waiter kind of disappeared and didn't bring the second bowl or a second spoon, so that was awkward. The pear merlot purse was ok, but the pear was just tiny little cubes rather than the larger portion we had pictured. The chocolate sphere was appropriate gooey. Espresso was good--just the right amount. I liked it enough that I would go back to try the boar when it comes in.
