I really liked it.
Quail crunchy, good kind of gamey, sauce delish
side of swiss chard greens in a great light cheese sauce very good
duck breast .. usually like it rounded with some crunch.. but that didn't mar the fact that it was flavorful and cooked quite well.
dessert chocolate tart with a cookie -like wafer crunch... great!
service was fine not overly professional, but surely not bad

btw
the guy next to me loved his shrimp and veal dishes.
i hope the word starts gettting out abt s. square. i am a huge fan of gary robins cooking. he doesn't dissapoint here!

    I went the other night as well, and I agree...the food was great. But, the place was EMPTY and it was their 4th night open. odd. The shrimp app was stellar (with a white bean salad and artichokes), the pasta special (with braised veal) was flavorful and a very big portion. The seafood dish (clams, shrimp, mussels, calamari and scallops in a tomato broth) was also really great. The service was overzealous, but since the dining room was empty, I suppose they were just bored. My one complaint is the bread service. They have a server bring you one very slim slice of cold bread with olive oil....a lot of fuss and service for something not that good. A heartier bread or a full bread basket would work better.

      yeah i agree. although it was decent amy's bread, i think the bread basket (a la commerce, del posto which come to mind) is more inspiring. the bread needed a little boost
