Poor quality. Beware of 5-star reviews, probably staff / owners.
I visited this restaurant for Valentine's '08. I must say, I was VERY disappointed. We were sat at a wobbly table in a noisy bar, when there were plenty of tables available in the dining room. We asked to be moved. Waiter's breath smelled like cigarettes (seriously). The prix fixe menu was printed with tacky designs on paper. Bottle of Banfi was reasonably priced (one of the two good things about the evening). Three of the items we chose from the menu were not available. 'Pere' salad was a bland mix with pears thrown on top. Eggplant parmigiana was decent (the other good thing about the evening). The Ahi Tuna was nothing special. The ribeye steak was not at all impressive, it was covered in rosemary and was overcooked. The asparagus simply tasted of steak. My girlfriend and I both had the lobster ravioli, which was a HUGE disappointment. The ravioli had thin edges which were very rubbery and the whole dish tasted extremely 'fishy.' I really would not be surprised if it was frozen. The tiramisu might also have been bought-in. It was mediocre at best. One thing I noticed was that the portions were huge, not in such a positive way, but more as an indication of an unprofessional kitchen staff. Waiter was a bit of a nuisance during dinner, making awkward small talk, hovering etc...But, as soon as he picked up our dessert plates, he let us know that he could cork the wine so that we could take it with us (a waiter trick to rush customers out of the restaurant, made especially offensive considering it was Valentine's and I was paying $200+ for two people). He took the check off the table immediately after it was signed. We did not see him for the last 30min. I did notice that as soon as we left and were getting in the car, he reappeared and walked over to the table to see if there was wine left in the bottle (trademark of a seedy waiter / restaurant, I know from 6 years in food service). ""Chefs"" walked around in baggy jeans and backwards hats towards the end. HORRIBLE.
