What started off as an evening of anticipation turned into an evening of waiting- with the slowest service we have ever experienced. Seated promptly at 6pm on a Friday. The dining room is small, well decorated with olive walls, open beams and comfortable chairs. The menu boasts a nice selection of seafood, poultry and beef with a good selection of wine, beer and a full bar. Dining can be had at the bar, but we sat at a window-side table for two. Appetizers were accompanied by two warm roles with honey butter. The caesar salad was large with a simple dressing. The chowder was a thin variety, but well seasoned with tender clams. The blackened chicken was very flavorful, perfectly cooked with a light cream sauce and toasted, shelled pumpkin seeds. Nice touch. The Greek seafood dish with feta and kalamata olives was well prepared, though perhaps light on the olives. Next would have come dessert, but we simply couldn't stand the waiting any longer- 20 minutes to get a dessert menu (looked promising), well over 30 minutes before our server checked back. Then another 20 minutes to return with a check. We watched as others experienced similar waits for placing food and drink orders. The food seemed to get out of the kitchen in a reasonable timeframe, but our server seemed to spend a significant amount of time on the phone and outside the dining room. Puzzling service, since there seemed to be adequate numbers of staff. This review is based on one server only, but next time we'll sit at the bar.
