We had dined here last April while visiting the area and liked it so much that we decided to come back for my Birthday, driving all the way from Menlo Park. When we arrived I said how excited I was to be there for my birthday. We were seated outside and then proceeded to wait one half hour before any service arrived, not even water. There was a server taking care of tables around us but it was as if we were invisible. I finally asked her if we could get some menus or water and then a gentleman arrived some time later and apologized and said that they were busy. That would have all been sort of tolerable although on one's birthday it feels not so special, but the quality of the food left a lot to be desired. We ordered a seafood lasagna special that sounded good with scallops and shrimp. The scallops were no where to be found and the couple of shrimp that were in it were not fresh and tasted like thawed frozen shrimp that were past their time with a chemical aftertaste. We also ordered a porcini mushroom ravioli dish, which was just okay and sitting in a pool of butter. We were going to order more food but with the bad service and poor food quality we went to dessert. No candle or anything special there either. Dessert was the best part of the meal though. I had a flan and my husband had an affogatto. Our son ordered a pizza and he loves pizza and said well, he has had much better elsewhere. Overall it was not a great experience and we will not go back. I guess that one good thing was that a man other than our server did ask how we liked our food and I told him about the lasagna and he did comp us half of the price of the dish.
