I wish I could comment on the food but did not get that far in our visit this time. This has been a favorite restaurant of ours but due to the rude treatment and very clear message that they didn’t care about our experience or business, we will not be going back. We ended up leaving before even ordering our dinner and walked in at Fin & Fino and had a great date night where the food and service were excellent.

We sat at 8:30pm, our dinner did not arrive until after 10:30pm. There were only a few tables eating at that time, so it made no sense why so slow.
The worst part was our pasta. We ordered the lemon-artichoke ravioli with sweet bread and roasted veggies. The dish was the worst restaurant meal I have eaten in my life. The ravioli were not cooked (NOT al dente, they were crunchy) and it looked like a child emptied their mom’s pantry on the plate. It was brown gravy with canned corn on top of undercooked pasta that had no flavor.
The only positive about the evening was our waitress who was very attentive. I will not be returning.

We had a party of 4. Each of us ordered different entrees - the crispy whole flounder, the pork iberico, the duck breast, and the halibut. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their dishes and raved about the unique preparations. The burrata appetizer was almost like dessert while the yellowtail crudo was bit tangy with the grapefruit. Both were delicious. The menu must change daily because the menu online is a bit different than what we had last night.

We shared a nice booth which was quiet until a large party was seated next to us as we were wrapping up the meal. With the party next to us, it did get a little loud in the space. The noise is the only negative comment I would make. The food made it worth it.

Friday night dinner. We shared the burrata panzanella with peaches as a starter. The flavors were excellent but the bread cubes were too large and could not easily be cut with a knife. Biting them in half worked but was not ideal. The sea scallop main was excellent with perfectly cooked scallops. The duck with lentils and duck sausage arrived cold. After a little discussion regarding how reheating might result in over-cooking the duck breast, I did receive an appropriately hot entrée. The duck, lentils and sausage were all very good. We will return to Custom Shop.

I love to start with their Spiced Old Fashioned. It's the perfect way to start your culinary journey at Customshop. We had the Burrata and Carpaccio to start. They were both amazing. I hear the Crudo is mouthwatering, as well.
For our mains, I had the lamb sirloin. It was so tender and beautifully cooked. The aioli was a great accompaniment. The rest of the group had the Halibut and the Lemon Artichoke Ravioli. All were amazing and no one wanted to share. :)

A great place to get a bite with a few friends or an intimate date. If you like a more quiet ambiance, outdoor seating is nice. If you like a more energetic ambiance, indoor seating is best. A unique menu for the eater that wants to eat outside of the norm, with powerful flavors and beautiful plating.
