We peeked in and liked what we saw so took a chance and booked an early table to check it out. Our table was ready when we arrived at six and we were promptly seated. Good start, but it slid downhill pretty fast from there. The menu is very limited. Forget this place if you have kids or teenagers, although even with only two of us "middle aged" folk we still had a tough time getting enthusiastic about the choices here. We ordered Pacific Chowder and Romaine Wedge Salad to start. the "chowder" was a fish consomme with assorted seafood. It was served without a spoon. I had to request one... Basic service 101, score "F". Then, being quite hungry I dug in. Lukewarm, more luke than warm and the clams were so full of sand I nearly lost a filling. My husband touched the bowl it was served in, stone cold, no wonder. Basic kitchen training 101, score "F". We sent the soup back to be re-done, since there was really nothing else on the menu that appealed to me. While waiting for the soup to re-appear we tried to flag someone down for a 2nd glass of wine with no luck, surprising for such a small place with no less than 4 people serving around 24 seats. The soup 2nd time around was good. The waitress stated emphatically, "it's on me". I appreciated that they were comping this, but did not understand why it was "on her". I do not want a waitress paying for the kitchens mistakes, which is what the statement implied. Strange, that's all. My husbands wedge salad was fine, not great, just ok. For the mains, the Beef and Blue was, again served on a cold plate. Often we get served steak that looks delectable with nice grill marks, a glistening steam rising off the meat as it is served. This steak did not present well, plated old school tower style greens on potatoes, steak piled on top, and again, it was just ok. We do better at home, to be perfectly honest. I had Salad Nicoise (served without a fork, again I had to ask for one) which was served with a very runny soft boiled egg. When questioned about the egg the server adamantly insisted that was the way it was supposed to be, if I hadn't lived in Nice and eaten this salad every other day, I might have believed her. Still, the rest of the salad was fine and well put together. Sitting right next to us were neighbours of ours and in the middle of their dinner all we could hear was the waitress profusely apologizing about something awry with theor meal...to the point we wanted to cover our ears up. So, wrap up on this is that this place has alot of work to do on their service and food and in a small community they only have a limited time to get things right. Looks alone won't keep most people coming back. Good luck, they're gonna need it.
