Marvellous venue... Been before, and shall return... I was a tad disappointed in the menu selection... no green salad offered. The appetizers were, I thought, too daring for some. I appreciate that the chef wants to be bold, but not all can deal with that. A few simple, expected standards would be nice. Soup in the summer? Hmmm I thought the menu a bit short, although I understand that given the current situation, it may be necessary to have a short menu to reduce costs. Perhaps one more dish? The presentation was a bit off-putting... Pickerel in a bowl?... no please. The value was questionable, although I get that times are what they are, and one is paying for the venue as much as for the food. But appetizers that jumped from $9 to $30?... Nothing in between? I felt the portions were a tad meagre... Not that I understand the economics of running a restaurant, but I was taken aback at some of the portion sizes. I did appreciate the complimentary oysters... Having said all this, I would and will return, and I recommend it to all who will listen! Good luck...
