Think needs to re-think it existence. An evening with a couple of friends started with a room that is very small, very empty (now I know why!) and very plain. A waiter must have lacked any experience, brought us red wine glasses for our white wine. After noticing the mistake, no new glasses were brought, just a giggle of accepted ignorance.

The table which was two small for a four top (we were three) included a basket of bread and some butter. The butter was unsalted (odd enough!) and the bread was a very bland offering of seeded wheat and white at least day old stale half loaves.

An order of grilled portabella mushrooms stuffed with crab and topped with cheese was ordered. It arrived not just cool, but actually cold, as in just out of the fridge and into the microwave for not long enough cold. We informed our waiter, who took them back to the kitchen, A few minutes later, out comes what was left of our chopped up mushroom on a plate. They were passable at best after this return. They did show on our bill at $15.00 dollars though!

One entree was ravioli stuffed with cheese including a roasted red pepper sauce. While this was the best of three entrees, the compliment goes to the company that made then froze and sold the ravioli. The sauce was fair, but must have been made with gold because the plate was barley moist.

The second entree was a special. Goat Cheese (not a lick of this appeared in the loin i received!) and spinach stuffed Beef tenderloin. This was served with black beans from a can that were cold and flavorless, and sautéed spinach (loin stuffed with spinach and spinach side maybe it was on sale!) that was also cold and without flavor. This whole mess was covered with a brown reduction sauce that might have well been watered down Missouri mud. This was another Flavorless addition to a perfectly rotten plate.
