Our waitress was the best part about this restaurant - Irish and super friendly - too bad she's leaving soon. This is a small venue - the two of us were crowded at a table for two. We started with a pastie and french onion soup - the pastie, a fried crusty pocket, was marginal at best stuffed with cheese and onion with a side of ketchup and A1, and the soup was pretty average, not bad, but I wouldn't order it again. Admittedly I have a pretty high standard when it comes to french onion soup. We followed that up with a small 'classic' fondue for $30 - came with some cubed bread apples and grapes. A little disappointing for 30 bucks. The due was kind of bland and had a sour twang (maybe from the wine in the mix?) that I really didn't appreciate - maybe one of the sharper blends would have been more to my taste. between the due and our appetizers we ended up full. We had two beers and the bill came to $50. I was glad we had one of their coupons off of a dot com restaurant site - I wouldn't go back to this spot without a coupon. We picked this particular restaurant because it's close to a nearby comedy club. It was a Friday and we were surprised to find there was a 3-piece jazz band - jazz is not my thing, but they were having a good time and were entertaining.
