We arrived on time and they had held a table for two near the window but it was also near the stairs where people were going up and down to the restrooms, and also to the kitchen and bar area. The restaurant is relatively small and all the rooms seem a bit crowded, though the noise level was not as bad as it might have been. I almost cancelled the reservation after reading about service problems this year but decided to give it a go anyway since we had never been there before. The host at the front desk made a big production out of the "window" table and the "view" but the only thing seen from the window was the street and parked cars. The waitress was attentive and brought menus etc. We took our time ordering and all was proceeding well when they brought the wine order. Wine by the glass and by the half bottle is expensive and we determined it was cheaper to buy a full bottle even though we did not want a full bottle. Nice wine, everything proceeding as anticipated until the food arrived. I ordered fish and chips which came with a salad and it was well prepared, though I thought a little expensive for one piece of cod and "dutch" fries. My companion had ordered a salad and after looking at it and taking one bite, she determined that they had brought her an ahi tuna salad instead of the quail salad she ordered. The server was apologetic once we flagged her down and said she had "misunderstood the order" which we had a hard time believing. Quail sounds nothing like ahi tuna. She simply was not paying attention, was too rushed or something. Anyway, she said the quail would be right out, but it appeared they had to go out and shoot one and dress it before the salad arrived. I had finished with the fish long before my companion's salad arrived. No offer of a free appetizer or even bread while she waited. The waitress tried to push dessert on us...not sure if she was offering it to compensate for the order screw up, but if so, it was not clearly communicated. There are still a couple of interesting things on the menu that might be worth trying, but we are not in any rush to return at this point.
