Unfortunately our dining experience at this elegant restaurant was both underwhelming and disappointing. The majority of staff presented as overly formal and smiling clearly not encouraged. From a food perspective, both main courses were definitely not on point. Hospitality …. ‘the friendly and generous reception and entertainment of guests’ Yes… we were greeted in this way at the entrance to the restaurant however that’s where it finished. We found it quite difficult conversing in competition with the (not so) background music and asked if the volume could be reduced. Obviously the young manager considered the request unreasonable as nothing changed. Comments on our dishes … The potato crisps needed salt, the smoked eggplant dip was quite nice. The lobster & leek croquettes, the prawn & crab also the scallops and wood roasted greens were delicious. Linguini arrived lukewarm and became ‘gluey’ very quickly The King George whiting ($55.50) presented nicely, was overcooked. Also I am not sure why you would crumb such a delicate, sweet piece of fish and serve it with an over powering sauce américaine. Had I known the fish was crumbed and fried, I would not have ordered it. Dessert, vanilla bean soft serve sundae, was fun and enjoyable
