    I Expected Better

    Given the focus on seafood and the price, I was expecting greater things. The scallops weren't perceptively dusted with anything let alone porcini dust or truffle oil, as the menu promised. The egg-based batter was not seasoned. It's a tragedy to apply salt in a fine restaurant but I had to salvage them somehow. The risotto was so-so and so was the bread. Butter was rock hard. Sorry... I donated $40 to try you out but no repeat business from me. I'll go to Les Halles when I need a seafood fix!

    Great time!

    I took a date for dinner on Tuesday at the Ketch. We both really loved the atmosphere and the fact that we were allowed privacy although we were seated in a central spot. Our server made wonderful recommendations and we both loved her friendly yet proffesional attitude. It did not hurt that the food was delicious and the music just the right tone. It is a place both of us loved and we will definitely return.

    Loved it!

    My friend and I went to the Ketch tonight and had a lovely time. We were on our way home to Pa. and figured we'd have a quick bite to eat before the trek. The waitress was extremely attentive and made great suggestions. The recommended dishes were as tasty as our server made them sound. Also, their Riesling is a great match for the Macadamia Veal Melts that I enjoyed. As we are in the downtown area a lot, we will definitely return.

    Avoid at all costs!

    I ate here for my birthday and was so disappointed! The food was terrible. The bread they brought to the table was microwaved and hard as a rock in about 10 seconds. The tuna tartare "with wasabi vinaigrette and ponzu sauce" was just regular tuna tartare with a big wad of wasabi next to it and some bad ponzu in a cup. There was a big chunk of smoked salmon mixed in too, which didn't bode well for the cleanliness of the kitchen. The special I ordered advertised filet mignon and artichokes and lobster sauce. First of all, the meat was a tough strip steak cut in two, not a filet - I know my meat and was not fooled. The artichokes and mushrooms in the sauce had the distinct taste of canned vegetables, and the beautiful lobster meat was so overcooked it was like chewing rubber. What a waste of good lobster! What a waste of an evening! The prices they charged for this slop were ridiculous considering what we got. The decor is reminiscent of a ship in that it is tacky and fluorescent.

    Eat there - not good delivery

    The food and decor at the actual restuant is great. Delivery, however, is consistently bad. Cold, stale food and half hour estimates turn into 1 hour pretty easily.
