Low quality overpriced kinda French. Duck breast was dry, and sword fish was prepared as it is usually done at cheap Chinese restaurants :) Shame in the middle of the Edgartown.

Although I don't know for sure I can't help but believe they would offer menu items for the ever growing gluten concerns. This restaurant seems to be quaint and romantic yet fresh and in tune with the latest menu options... More
