Beautiful setting, good service.  Food is artfully presented but it looks better than it tastes.  We had about twelve items off the menu.  The appetizer special of pastramied lamb heart was tender, though it didn't quite work in a pool of broth.  The venison tartare was nice, but the rest of the starters were forgettable -- even the crab dish was a miss for me. 

The mains were better, a duck wih some geleed beet and a crispy skin, a trout with a nice sauce, and a braised short rib served without its brasing liquid were all quite good. 

Dessert of caramel popcorn over a cake and a chocolate chiboust was fine.  For this style of food, I much prefer Plum, Commonwealth, or Commis.  I would not return but I do think it would be a good place for a business dinner or some occasion when the setting is more important than the food.
