To start, we were brought tap water with no ice--cool at best. Diet soda was $3.50, not $2 or $2.50. This is an outrageous price for a bar soda with lots of ice. Server did not ask if my partner wanted a refill. Bread and butter plates were on the table, but no bread of any kind came with our meals. When I asked why they were there, I was told, "to encourage people to order small plates."!
The menu is quite limited. I had salmon, which was decent--served over a melange of vegetable listed on the menu, but most of those listed were barely there. It was mostly fennel. Luckily, I like fennel. My partner had the chicken and dumplings. It was a large bowl of gray with shreds of chicken--looked like scraps. There were no dumplings and no real pieces of chicken. If it were me, for $17, I would have sent it back. Instead, my partner asked for dumplings. He was brought 3 marble sized pieces. There is no way I'd ever go to this restaurant again. Don't servers even know to serve food and beverages the way they'd like to be served? This place is a very poor value.
