My wife and I had a first time visit last night. We liked the large dining room, with the high ceiling and overhead dark wood suspension. We also like the dimmed lighting and candle on the table. It was very noisy, though, so not a quiet and romantic place, at least not during our visit. The place was pretty full. There were several large groups, and the sound level increased as the drinks did. We were lucky to be sheltered a bit in a booth along the periphery. Our waiter was very nice and informative about the menu. He answered our questions in detail. I had the Spicy Creole Gumbo to start. It was good though I was hoping for a cup and this was a bowl. For my entrée I tried the Grilled Barramundi (New Zealand). They prepare their fresh fish with great simplicity, seared without seasoning. As our waiter described it, it came out light and flakey, and very tasty and fresh. I still would have liked to have had some sauce options for the side (like a butter sauce), but that’s my personal preference. One of my side dishes was the Apple & Celery Root Slaw, which was excellent. My wife started with the Strawberry & Pistachio Baby Greens salad, reported it was excellent. For her entrée she selected the ½ lb Canadian Lobster Tail. She said it was good but challenged the weight. She was also disappointed that only drawn butter was available. What! No brown butter ... in a better seafood house? Say it isn’t so, Wesley. Otherwise, our meals were excellent. Our bill, including one mixed drink and one desert, was $110. We would definitely return for the great food, despite the noise (which we usually do not tolerate).
