This new restaurant (formerly Inn Flight on Route 611 in Abington) reopened in July 2010 with a new menu and new decor. We were there Friday night and had a very pleasant meal. The prices are a little high for the neighborhood ... appetizers range from about $7-$13, entrees run between ~$16 - $25 (higher for the daily specials), and desserts are all price fixed at $7.
We split the scallop with risotto appetizer - which was absolutely delicious. For $13, though, they could have given us 4 scallop (instead of 3) and a smaller amount of risotto. Even though I only ate half of it, I was getting full and we hadn't had our dinner yet!
I had a pasta with shrimp and fennel entree ($18) and my husband had the 16 oz. rib eye (strip steak?) - which didn't look like the 16 oz. steaks I buy. I can't help but wonder if it was 16 oz. before they removed the bone. His entree was close to $30. The steak came with asparagus and truffled potatoes which were also very good. My pasta was very tasty, although it was a slight departure from typical pasta. I'd classify it as more "gourmet".
We split a key lime cheesecake, which was also great and just the right size for us both. All in all - the dinner and tip, without cocktails was $75. For a Friday night out, it just seems a little high.
Service was decent, although we had trouble getting beverage refills. Our waitress was very pleasant, but she seemed to disappear after our entrees were served. We could have used a drink refill, but she was nowhere to be found. Finally one of the maitre-d's saw us looking around and came over to see what we needed. I have to knock off a point or two for the lack of attention by our server. I could understand if she was swamped, but the restaurant was only about half-full.
I'd definitely return to this restaurant, only try to steer away from the daily specials and the most expensive appetizer on the menu (although it's definitely very good!).
