    I ordered the shrimp, scallops, mussels, creole sausage in a tomato broth on pasta ribbons --and it was outstanding. I was hesitant to order it, because of the creole sausage as I don't like spicy food, but the servicer assured me it was not spicey. The dish was indeed not spicey and very delicious. I will probably order it next time also. Our server, Emma, was excellent. She was very helpful with information on our questions regarding the menu. She was also very pleasant and enjoyable to have as our server.

    Appreciate having our anniversary acknowledged and the sparkling beverage presented. I had the steak salad. The steak was tender and perfectly cooked, but I felt the rest of the salad was lack luster- ingredients were chopped too fine to recognize what they were. Husband had the lamb and said it was very tasty. The risotto unfortunately was swimming in a bit too much broth. Our server was brand new and did a fabulous job.

    We took a chance to come back after not going for quite awhile. Previously we kept getting the same server and she was clearly not happy with her job. After years of being away we were very happy to see a younger group of servers that were helpful and energetic. Sadly the food was meh. We always used to go for the food and tried to ignore the service. The menu was good but it wasn’t as good as usual. We went to brunch at noon so that could explain the quality of the food. Everything seemed dry. Even the sauce on the eggs Benedict was much too thick. I got Risotto and it was good but there was about a quarter cup of oil poured all over it and it became distracting to the dish. We went as a group of four and didn’t order cocktails. The bill was about $70 and I find that reasonable but I just wish the food had been better overall. I loved the “new to us” bar area and perhaps we will come back to get some small plates and cocktails. Most likely we won’t be back for brunch.

    We arrived late afternoon because of an evening engagement. It was quiet. Staff was gracious, attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. There appeared to be several smaller dining rooms and even though the 7 or 8 tables around us were filled by the time we finished our dinner, it was never too noisy to enjoy conversation. The food was excellent. The menu was diverse without being overwhelming. Our group of four shared two appetizers and we each had a different entree. All were excellent. Staff accommodated a couple of substitutions. There were a couple of intriguing desserts on the menu but we did not try them. We spoke with a couple of other patrons as we were leaving and they were frequent loyal customers.

    The food, as always, is the shining light of MC. Many of the dishes have been there a good while but chef Regan and his staff never fail to present really great food. While presentation seems to be big deal at some restaurants, at MC, taste is supreme. Thanks for a marvelicious dinner. We will return.

    4.5/5: The food was delicious, the service was excellent. I have an onion allergy and both the server and the kitchen made me aware of what was made with onions and what i could substitute. The wine was good as were the cocktails. Really great experience all the way around. The only reason i am dropping it 1/2 start was because people that ordered a bit after us were getting their food before us. Should be noted that my allergy accommodations were only to remove sauces and sub out the potatoes, this shouldn’t have caused such a large delay in receiving our food. Food did come out hot and in a decent portion size.
