  1. thanks wsg. :>

    so i take it it's a turnaround from your last year's experience w/ them?

    if i recall correctly, you mentioned their portions were tiny and it didn't feel like a value?

      the quantity (my main complaint earlier) was vastly improved.
      i left the restaurant feeling full.
      enough protein was served so that i continued to stay full until dinner time.

      the quality was terrific.

        went there for lunch again today.
        ordered the exact same things.

        the appetizer size was HALVED.
        the fish size seemed marginally smaller too.
        my daughter's entree came much later than mine (i was over half way done with mine by the time hers arrived)
        when i wanted a lemon wedge to squeeze over the fish, it took a very long time to find someone who would even look over at our side of the room.

        what a difference a day makes. .. . .

          Thanks for the report, WSG. Inconsistency of appetizer portions is something I noticed with the Albacore tuna ceviche between visits. I took pix from last year and this year so I know I'm not imagining it.

          Are they still offering the bread service that they started earlier this year?

            i was given toasted crostini on monday, but no sight of it on tuesday.

            needless to say, i don't plan to return.
