My boyfriend and I went here for our anniversary based on a Westword review. We're both younger (20-25) and I was a little freaked out/intimidated by the atmosphere. It seemed very stuffy, intellectual, not a good place to laugh and talk loudly. There was a group of business men and a couple older gentlemen who seemed engrossed in their conversation about life/philosophy. After we talked to the waitress though it was better. The staff was friendly and the food was great. We got mussels (which came with a choice of 4 preparations) and white truffle macaroni. The mussels were great and the macaroni was awesome except the peas seemed like they were frozen and were a little dry and weird tasting. The portions were large and the wine the server helped us choose was fabulous. They were out of a few wines but they gave us a more expensive wine for the same price as the one we chose that they were our of to compensate, which really impressed me.
- White truffle macaroni: Good, not great. ($9)
