The Mixx: good food, weird portions

We went to the Mixx last night for the first time. Good service, nice atmosphere. Our friend ordered fried calamari appetizer--tasty. All the food we ordered was good. But portion sizes were odd.

Our friend ordered one of the specials, a lamb stew with a topping like their lobster pot pie. It was $18 or so, but tiny! Served in a cute but very small skillet. My partner ordered an arugala salad which I think (not sure) was the same cost as my green salad with blue cheese, but for some reason it was like half the size of mine. Her side of butternut squash with goat cheese was served in the same tiny skillet as our friend's entree.

I was the only one who ordered a "big plate" (normal entree size and price) of pork tenderloin with cherries and garlic mashed potatoes, and it was excellent.

Food and service very good, but they need to figure out portion sizes...anyone else have this experience?
