The staff at this restaurant was lovely, and the service good, but the style of food is very old-fashioned - and not in a good way. The menu is heavy on what used to be called "Continental Fare" - clams casino, veal dishes, escargot and prime rib. The locavore trend has not yet made it to this part of the world - the height of harvest season but nothing on the menu to reflect the many local farms. I ordered a pasta dish that was billed as being garlic and oil, but that was strangely sweet. I will say that it was served HOT which, was good , and the chicken breasts in it were nicely cooked. The spinach salad that preceeded it was covered in a too sweet dressing as well. I skipped dessert - did have a great, old-school cocktail though. In short - from my one visit I do not undertand the raves. This restaurant is expensive, and I don't think it's worth it.
