    Service was terribly slow despite not being very crowded. (There were several empty tables.) We waited forever just for every course. I’ve never been disappointed in the food until tonight. The stuffed mushroom appetizer was disgraceful. I had 4 quarter size mushrooms with hardly any crabmeat and it was lacking flavor. I had the bistro salad and was charged $10 extra for 4 tiny shrimp. The quality and quantity of food declined on this visit. Not sure if I’ll be returning any time soon or at all.

    We have been there a fee times and it gets worse each time. Pasta was undercooked, steak had no flavor and we didn't even get a chance to finish our salads before the entree came out even though I specifically told the waitress that we didn't want to be rushed. Basically came down to being over priced fast food.

    Two of us had the chicken panini and it was bland. One person got the burger and it was overdone. The other 3 were happy with their lunches. The wait staff provided us with very good service. I have eaten dinner here before and was always pleased with my meal. I don’t think that I will be back for lunch.

    We have dined here many times over the years. This was the most disappointing visit we have ever experienced here. The service was extremely slow and non responsive. It will not keep us from dining here in the future, but it will be a while before we come here again. Sorry.
