Had dinner last night at this restaurant...They are known in Dallas for having fresh fish flown in daily, so I was eager to try them out...We started with a glass of Pinot, which was $12.50...thought that was a bit much...not even a large glass of wine...We had to ask for bread, which was somewhere between just white gooey bread and a sugarless Angel Food cake taste and consistency...Our apps were good, though, as we ordered the crab cakes and calamari...the calamari came with three very good sauces...We went with the waiter's suggestion of the sea bass that was topped with a gorgonzola mousse..We all love sea bass, and order it frequently at restaurants, and are usually quite pleased...This was a great disappointment, as it was topped with a very heavy dense mousse, which completely covered up the taste and delicacy of the seabass..One of my dining companions likened the dish to what tasted like just a piece of flounder that did not begin to resemble a delicate piece of sea bass...Told our waiter that we did not like the entree, and he did not offer to replace it with another dish...We chalked the main dish up to a chef that does not know how to prepare this wonderful fish, (should have a very light sauce on it), and a waiter that was not very experienced...Will not return....
