Pleasant - 3.0 out of 5

Douglas and Barbara, Lansdale Mon, 25 September 2017

It was okay. I did not care for the sauces on the Norwegian Salmon and the Arugula Salad. My wife's shrimp scampi was good, and although she did not care for the polenta that it was served on, I enjoyed it. It was a mixed bag, but was expensive. If a meal is expensive, it should also be enjoyable, and the food needs to be exceptional.

Liked: Much of the food was good, but not exceptional with such high prices. I wondered why we didn't get bread like the table next to us, so I asked for some with the meal, only to find out that it cost $4.00 (a dollar a slice). It was good, but not that good.
Disliked: If you have all night I guess this would not be a problem, but we put a note in our online reservation that we needed to be at Miller Symphony Hall by a certain time, and the service was slow and erratic. Communication does not seem to be good between the various servers that bring items to the table. I like to enjoy the meal, not have to wonder if what I asked for will ever get to the table.

l Four of us dined here before a concert. We had limited time. My wife's soup was so thick you needed a knife to cut through it. My friend and I ordered my favorite: fettucini bolognese. No longer...
