I think the legalization of medical marijuana is the only possible explanation as to how this place got 4 stars on Yelp. Either that or people only voted on the decor and service, both of which are great.

But the food!?! Are you kidding me?! What a waste of taste buds. The best thing we had were the olives & almonds (pictured) that come with the bread. Neither of which they actually make. Everything else was lacking. The ricotta dumpling app being the only solid good. The soft shell crab app being “eh.” The scallop entree tasted fishy and the other flavors in the dish simply didn’t work with the mollusks, better on their own. And the short rib entree was equally underwhelming. Cooked well, but simply lacking flavor. The sum of its seemingly delicious sounding parts netting out to be a heavy mush reminiscent of dog food.

So, why did we order dessert you ask? Because, we were hoping for some form of redemption. Unfortunately, it never came. Both the caramel tart and the creme fraiche cake were as equally bland as everything else.

Guess I should’ve known better as I was equally nonplussed by AOC. Oh well, at least I spared the wife from the disappointment.
