    Underwhelming and overpriced. We went wth high expectations given the restaurant’s reputation, but left disappointed. The dishes are small and mostly me-too, and the wine list, which has some interesting and off-beat wines, starts at $100. The service is friendly but it felt geared toward getting customers in and out as quickly as possible.

    The sea food tower was flavorful and far from boring. The steak tartare was memorable as are the kennebec chips. Basically, always order whatever comes with the chips.
