The Valentine’s Day dinner was beyond disappointing. The service was sub-par. One entree was served incorrectly, followed by one dessert. I ordered the wine pairing and they forgot to serve the final wine until after the check was given and I brought it up. The server never asked how we were doing or inquired about the food. Water was never refilled. Entrees were warm but not hot. Overall I was grossly disappointed and will not return.

The atmosphere is very inviting when you walk into the restaurant. Then it went downhill from there. First round of cocktails come after a 10 minute wait which was ok. After placing our order we waited 20-25 mins. Our waiter came back to the table and asked us if we would like to see the dessert menu. I told him we hadn’t received our entrees yet. He went back to the kitchen and then came back to the table with the hostess. She explained that a large table had put their order in just ahead of ours hence the delay. That “large” table was a 6 top. She offered to buy a round. I ordered the fennel encrusted tuna with mushrooms and sweet peas. The fish was good but the mushrooms on which it sat were sweet. Too sweet. Tasted like figs more than mushrooms. When the bill came we were indeed charged for the second round of drinks but the hostess took care of it. Needless to say I personally won’t be back.

Took a business group of 8 and had a really great experience. We split some apps, each had an entree (with a few people enjoying the sushi) and split a few desserts along with our cocktails. They started us off with a prosecco toast and amuse bouche, and brought out some great biscuits and sweet muffins to finish in addition to our regular order. The service was prompt and friendly, with recommendations provided. It was also great that we were kept very clear on timing - before ordering dessert they let us know that the souffles would take approx 20 minutes so we weren't shocked at the wait. Food was prepared very nicely and cocktails were pretty good. Would definitely recommend!

Sushi was great. We ate at 730 and they were out of swordfish already. The red fish substitute was over cooked.

This place is great, my husband and I dined here for NYE. Although our "ticket was lost" and it took a long while to get our entree course, both the server and manager came by to apologize. The food was amazing, the manager bought us a round of drinks and we were happy. Great job!

We were greeted warmly and told our table was ready early but we chose to have a happy hour cocktail in the bar which comes with complimentary sushi! Then we moved to the lovely dining room and greeted with complimentary champagne and an amuse bouche. Our server, J.R. was personable and very knowledgeable about the menu. I had the miso swordfish over rice with cashews which was rich and absolutely perfectly prepared. Husband had the redfish in an amazing broth. We finished with a molten chocolate souffle. Everything about this evening was flawless. Go there.

We went on a Tuesday night, so perhaps we should have realized it would be a quieter, duller, slower atmosphere. We were there for a group work dinner. It was borderline boring - I would have expected more from a downtown spot (but again, it was a Tuesday). Service was really slow to get drinks at a table, even though they weren't that busy. And the online menu was outdated so prices were several dollars higher at the restaurant. That was a little disappointing, too.

I want to be fair in this review. I have been to DFM before and had a great meal, however, this time was a disappointment. The food is very good (try the Chowder as an appetizer, it's one of the best) but unfortunately the service for the first 45 mins was very poor - it took that time to get a drink! To be fair, once one of the waiters (Brian , I think) realized that we had been neglected he tried his best to make amends and he deserves 5 stars for that. BUT, by then the damage was done and a quiet dinner with my wife had been spoiled. The manager claimed to be unaware that there was a problem, but when I approached him and explained, he did the fair thing too and we didn't have to pay for the meal. The fact that the food is good and that the waiter (Brian) tried so hard means that I will probably go back and give them another shot!

Beautiful restaurant. Staff very courteous and friendly. Jillian, our server, was excellent. Sushi rolls were very good. Clam chowder was delicious, but should have been hotter. Cheddar Jalepeno biscuits were delicious. Crab cake was not hot, and all the ingredients mixed in to it, killed the flavor of the crab. Salmon was cooked perfectly medium rare, but again, too many other ingredients on the plate did not make sense. The real bummer was that the restaurant is incredibly dark after the sun goes down. You cannot see the food presentations that well and reading the menu without a light, is nearly impossible. If I went back, would just sit at the sushi bar

My wife and I visited on a Friday night. It was one of the best dining experiences we’ve had in years. The service was OUTSTANDING!!! From the moment we sat down till we left we had special items coming from the chef (in addition to the items we ordered). Our server was attentive and was supported by a great team. The food came out quickly and was excellent. This was my second visit (last was 2012) and I will certainly be back.

The fish(es) were done and paired with accompaniments perfectly. The biscuit with maple butter is melt in your mouth good. I like the extra touch of a taste from the chef before dinner. Our server was attentive and knew the menu well. Definitely worth a trip if you like fish.
