I'm skeptical of food quality and value when dining at a chain, but we were hungry from Christmas shopping and we didn't have to move the car (high praise I know).
They've done a nice job on the renos, the decor is chic and inviting, the booths provide some privacy and the different heights and layers help with noise.
We had share plates, here's the hit and miss. Prawn gyoza was very good. Too bad the server didn't take time to explain the three sauces that were placed alongside. The prawn tacos with chocolate bacon were odd to say the least. Chipotle mayo was overpowering and the bacon thing just off putting, especially because it was rather soft ( not crispy like you would expect). Lastly the wok broccolini, way too much chili, we couldn't finish it, but downed two glasses of water! Best part of our lunch experience was the super cool teapots, just order one for fun.
I did scan the wine list and for dinner, that will need LOTS of work. PS. Rockford, not paying $51 for Kim Crawford Sauv Blanc, it's $21 at LDB. give me more choice and better value, we may return.
