Since they only take reservations a certain amount of time in advance, we waited a long time to dine here. This isn't some place you can just pop in at the last minute, reservations are required.
It is a three course prix fixe menu without dessert. I don't know how frequently the menu changes but there are always seasonal dishes and a few odd combinations that actually pair together very well. I did hear our waiter tell the table next to us that you could do a la carte and he explained the pricing for that but it was never offered to us or a friend of mine who is a frequent guest.
We both had the three courses. I started with the octopus terrine and it was very good but a tad fishy. I eat octopus more than the average person so I was ok with it, but I could see someone trying it for the first time and being put off by it. I had the masa cake with chicken in a mole sauce for my second course and it was underwhelming. The main entree, seared scallops in a coconut sauce however was divine. The scallops were cooked to perfection and the sauce was outstanding. My husband had the Alma bread and although it was delicious, I thought the bread was too thick hence the steak knife accompaniment. He enjoyed the fried egg as well as his smoked lamb entree.
We would've had dessert but this was the thing. It was a rainy, humid night and the HVAC was dripping on me. I played it off as a joke but suggested they stop seating the table after we left. They were very apologetic. However, the table next to us complained as well after I brought it to their attention. That couple left after complaining of the condensation dripping on them and they seated the table again! Well those people sat down and wanted to move! Meanwhile as I was being "rained"
on nothing was ever done for my situation. Having been in the business for over 30 years I know you don't let someone walk out the door without at least trying to make it right. They could've comped one of my glasses of sparkling wine or comped our corkage fee or something???
The food was good enough for us to go back but don't sit under the HVAC unit which covers a lot of ground in a loft space.
