I recently visited here on a Friday evening, while they were still serving the limited menu. The expanded menu looked tasty as did the menu we were given to choose from. Unfortunately there was some disappointment in this place. Beginning jitters, maybe? We hope so. The hostess was super nice, and the server had good intentions but bantered a bit too much when we asked a question. His answer would get lost in the mix of his stories and whatever else he was going on and on about. So we just had to interpret what he was probably trying to say.

We began with 2 oyster shooters. Very unique ones, I must say. The Americano with the chilled vodka, I'm told, was yummy. I had the Mariachi. If only the menu stated it was warm I'd have ordered it chilled. The urge to push it down my throat quickly took away from the opportunity to actually taste it. I think the taste, chilled, would have been delightful, too.

The calamari was recommended by the server. He said it is one of the best items they serve. It looked like they scooped up a lot of the breading from the bottom of the fryer. And they were far too greasy. We sent them back, and when they came out again they were still far too greasy and oil-soaked, but minus the extra crunchies mounded on the top. Perhaps the oil was not hot enough in the fryer? The cherry peppers tossed in were very tasty, however. Oh, and no marinara; that's like getting fries with no ketchup.

We moved on and hoped that the server's other enthusiastic recommendations would hold true. Lacking any kids' options, we went for the burger for the kiddo. I never enjoy paying $9 for a burger plus the drink price for a child, but I am always prepared for that fact in Fells or Canton. So I can brush that off and get over it if it is still prepared properly as an adult's meal would be. Kiddo enjoyed the burger even though the server forgot the "no foliage on the burger or plate" request. She ate the whole patty. I would still appreciate kids' food options being available in the future, even if not listed on the menu.

I ordered oysters, because I wanted to eat light and sample their selection of mignonettes and cocktail sauces. All of the cocktail sauces tasted the same, however the mignonettes very different. The green (tarragon?) sauce tasted too licorice-y. Not my style, but I'm sure it suits others. The pink (watermelon) one was interesting, like a fruity sweet and sour. It worked. My favorite was the black pepper vinegar with the pieces of carrot in it. Simple, but most pleasing. No complaints on the oysters or the freshness. My guest got the grilled skirt steak which was recommended by the server. The chimichurri was to die for. I love beets, cilantro, garlic, and all of the other components of the sauce, and putting them together on a steak was heavenly with the perfectly prepared plantains on the side. I always know better to order a steak less done that I prefer, but we were assured it would be cooked just right. I should have insisted when he ordered. Medium/medium rare became well done. It would've been a home run had we not had chewy and overcooked meat. It didn't stop me from picking at his plate, and he still ate all of what I didn't steal.

So would we come back? Sure, everyone has a bad day. And when someone is the new kid on the block it can be overwhelming, I'm sure. I'll give them a second chance when the menu expands and they have had time to receive feedback from other guests dining there. I'd really like to try their spinach salad next.
