Given the location inside Limelight, the cool gothic vibe, and the amazing patio, I couldn't believe this place was so empty on a Saturday night. We had the duck sliders and lobster guac to start and both were fantastic. The foie gras type sauce on the sliders and homemade chips with the guac really made the dishes. Our entrees were not as good. The bbq ribs and tail were tender and flavorful but really dry. The pork loin was overcooked, and the picada sauce just didn't seem to jive with the rest of the dish. It was too tangy when it should have been sweet or savory. For desert we got the chocolate tart, which was fantastic, and next time I want to try the pecan & bacon pie. Yum! I should note the good draft beer selection. Given the location, the celebrity chef, the large portions, and the quality ingredients, I didn't think this place was overpriced, but they do need to work on the main dishes, especially (ironically) the pork!

The appetizers were decent, but that was the highlight of many disappointments for my experience there. After sending back an obviously spoiled skate, the manager offered to replace it with what turned out to be a very salty gnocchi dish (without offering to comp anything). My drinks were horribly mixed even though they were basic, standard orders. My friends were underwhelmed, especially for the price so we left without even considering dessert. I won't be coming back anytime soon, which is a shame as the outdoor seating is so nice (despite the "scene" vibe).
