svelte in CDM

so went to svelte for dinner on thursday night....interesting place, great looking menu items but the prices are really, REALLY inflated. service was okay, took a long time to get our entrees and they didn't even bring us any bread or anything to go with our wine. my filet was $28, i was still very hungry after eating it, it was more like a small plate that you'd order at a tapas place. it was also cooked to medium when i asked for rare. my SO's pork was good, but the bacon rice that it came with was really greasy. desert was good, but $18 for fondue? good thing we finished when we did because the music from the lounge started and booty shaking top 40 didn't really go with the gothic ambiance in the main dining room. i'd go back for drinks, but that's it. there are far better restaurants to go to in this area.
