My wife and I had dinner here on a Saturday night. The restaurant was busy, but I wouldn't say "packed". We had a reservation and were seated right away. The restaurant has a bistro ambiance and the energy is good. None of the cocktails or beers really sang to me, and I thought the cocktails were the only really overpriced thing on the menu, so I passed. We came here for the moules frites (Belgian style mussels and fries) which is one of the specialties of the restaurant. For appetizers, I had the crispy brussels sprouts which were sensational, and my wife had the seafood chowder which she liked very much. The mussels come in 4 varieties, and I had a Thai inspired curry style mussels while my wife had a French style tomatoes infused mussels. The mussels are served in what I would describe as an individual "cauldron" the lid is removed and the fragrant steam wafts through the air. Yum yum! The mussels were delicious, and you are given a lot of them. While mussels are generally a less expensive shellfish, I though the quality of the dish was value at the price point. The french fries were great, too. We were both very satisfied and plan to return. I sat near the kitchen and could see everything going out- the chicken, lobster, fish, everything looked great. There was only one dessert on offer which surprised me, and although it was declined a complimentary mini dish of chocolate mousse to close the meal was appreciated. There were a couple of slight service missteps (the newbie waiter who handed my wife the peppermill to grind the pepper instead of doing it himself) that were overlooked because of the nice atmosphere and overall great food and decent service.
