Five Points this past weekend...flat out bad. What happened?

Came into the city for a special dinner on Saturday and was, in a sense, wowed by the mediocrity of our meal at Five Points. I'm not generally interested in posting negative comments - it's much more fun to write about the things that exceed my expectations - but this was a major surprise. It was sort of like the "fancy" food at the "fancy" restaurant in a Sheraton that's overreaching - lots of of compotes glooped on top of things, lots of drizzling of this and that on top of this and that, all to very little effect. Meats were tough, pasta was bland, everything was overseasoned... I've loved their food in the past - has there been a change in the kitchen? The place was completely packed as usual, but I'm not being harsh when I say our meal indicates a kitchen staff with delusions of adequacy.
