First impressions nice location friendly staff, ambience very nice. Visited day three of re-opening so still getting re-started.
Concerns - when issuing menu please inform customers what is not available, rather than when they are ordering. After order was placed 5+min later I was told my dish had JUST? run out (ravioli). Mind you we are referring to 6.30+pm dinner slot. I went for the lobster spaghetti. It was yuk and not hot. For a $20 mark I would expect a nice, basic dish at minimum. I left more than 3/4 of the dish. Two if my friends had the same dish and left at least half of of their meal. It was less than basic in taste. A bottle of bolognese from the supermarket tastes better than the sauce that was used. My Friend had the beef cheek and that was cold. Sad considering it took forever for our dinner to arrive.
Out of fairness their pumpkin soup was very nice, as was the turkey pizza and the crab cakes. Wines were a little over priced, however the Terra Andian 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon was very nice. ($81 a bottle). I'd suggest that is $10-$20 over priced.
The strawberry shortcake, whilst nice, tasted about a day+ old. The burnt banana desert was nice for those with a sweet tooth, but generally had too many flavours, banana, chocolate, strawberry and sesame cracker.
3 entrees, 4 mains, 2 deserts and 2 bottles of wine totaled $367, $92 Per person. Would I come back? No. Going home to have peanut butter on toast!
