Party of five. We arrived and were promptly seated. The server rattled off what seemed to be 8-10 specials of which many had to be repeated later. Why weren't they printed out if there were that many? The cream of broccoli soup contained large chunks of broccoli and the spinach and chicken soup lacked spinach, was full of stringy chicken, and was a bit on the salty side. The tossed salads were skimpy with occasional brown lettuce, thickly sliced cucumbers,and limp red onions and olives. There were no tomatoes or croutons. Dressings were served in a plastic cup on the side. The homemade Italian lacked flavor. The balsamic was very good though. Entrees were a grilled ham steak with mac and cheese, baked haddock with a breadcrumb topping, a delmonico steak with shrimp scampi, and a fried parmesan and breadcrumb pork cutlet (2). Dinners arrived fast but not all at once. The macaroni and cheese was summed with an "okay." It looked dry. The ham steak took up the entire plate and was lazily topped with canned pineapple chunks. It would have been nice to have a few slices of grilled pineapple to help with presentation. The haddock smelled a bit ''fishy'' and was dry and bland. The delmonico was grilled a perfect medium rare but topped with so many mushrooms you couldn't see the streak! A rib-eye is one of the most flavorable steaks but this one was not. It was not even seasoned with salt and pepper. The "shrimp scampi", about 8-10 medium shrimp, arrived in a small round casserole dish swimming in over an inch of a butter type sauce. The shrimp were less than flavorful and lacked the garlic and touch of white wine you expect in a good scampi. The two pork cutlets were pounded as thin as a pancake, breaded, and fried. They were flavorless, tough, and over-cooked. The breadcrumb coating was described as 'shake 'n bake.'' They were served with a small side of applesauce (2 tablespoons) in a plastic cup. $105 with tax and tip. What a waste.

This sit-down restaurant offers a romantic setting for diners. The filet-mignon is delicious, but a little expensive. Side dishes are limited, but entrees are varied and include a good variety of seafood choices. All meals include salads and bread. The desserts are sinfully good, and I highly recommend the chocolate cake especially!

PROS:
CONS: Price Is High
