The atmosphere was excellent.

Food was not up to what we expected from a repeat finalist for the James Beard award. The cocktails were excellent. And one person at our table completely enjoyed the tiramisu. The quinoa was over-salted. The New York Strips were subpar. The scallops were reportedly good but not as good as Carrabbas. There was a 45 minute wait after we finished our appetizers before the entrees were served. For the price, which with a coupon was over $200, it is not an experience we would care to repeat. I cannot imagine how maddening it would have been if we had paid full price for over-rated entrees.
