Never disappoints

Food and service absolutely wonderful. Regular visitors and the food never disappoints. It is a haven of tranquility in a city of hubbub.

Unbelievable dinner!

Our visit here was somewhat disappointing. To begin with, the restaurant had just switched over to Passover mode two days before the holiday began. That wasn't a problem in itself, but they brought out rolls containing matzah meal, which should not be eaten so soon before the holiday. A kosher restaurant should have known better. This wasn't such a problem for us but would have been for someone more stringent. The butter served with them was cold and difficult to scoop and spread on the rolls--a really basic error in restaurant service. We ordered the melazane, sea bream carpaccio, and spinach salad with goat cheese appetizers. The first two were good, but the goat cheese was practically nonexistent on the salad. The waiter brought us a wine list, which he then left on the table for about 20 minutes, then came and took back without asking if we wanted to order anything from it! My husband had to call him back to the table to place my wine order. (Avivim--a Chardonnay/Viognier blend which was unimpressive. Give it a miss.) Although everyone else at the table was served water, I was not given any till much later. Why not pour water for everyone at the same time? Another surprisingly basic error. We all ordered fish, and the entrees were quite good. The skin on the sea bream filet and the barramundi were nicely seared and crisped (although the waiter initially confused the two dishes). My husband initially didn't like the sauce with the sea bream, but by the end of the meal, it had grown on him. The seared tuna with vegetables was well-executed but generally unremarkable. My favorite thing about it was the cute mushroom pieces cut to look like fish--and they were excellent mushrooms, too. The tuna itself was underseasoned to my taste. All in all, better attention to the details of service would have improved our experience significantly. The food was fresh, beautifully presented, and for the most part competently made, but just didn't knock our socks off with bold or intriguing flavors.
