The owner contacted me for leaving the review below. I just thought that was relevant. Whatever you do, don't leave a negative review of this place, or she'll call you names! Better yet, just don't go in the first place.

Tonight (April 23, 2011), my cousin made reservations for 6:00 p.m. When we arrived, we were really excited, as we had already checked out the menu online. In particular, we were looking forward to the alligator tail appetizer.

The bartender, Jennifer, waited on us. At first, she was very friendly. We ordered a bottle of wine and the alligator tail appetizer and, a few moments later, the calamari appetizer.

When the appetizer came out, I seriously thought she was bringing croutons for another table. For $10, there was less than 4 oz. of alligator tail. It was served on a plate the size of my hand that was mostly taken up by a ramekin of dipping sauce. We were stunned into silence. We ate the few bites of alligator tail while we waited for the calamari. It was ok, but not spectacular and certainly not worth $10 for less than a handful of meat.

When the calamari arrived, Jennifer described it as "Calamari Salad." It also cost $10 and was billed on the menu as "Fried Calamari tossed with Napa Cabbage, Peppers, Jicima, Scallions and Cilantro in a sweet Chili Vinaigrette." What we got was a mound of cabbage topped with four pieces of calamari. It was incredibly disappointing and ridiculously overpriced.

At this point, we decided to send it back and get the check so we could go somewhere else. The portions were the smallest any of us had ever seen for fine dining, and my husband and I have worked in restaurants for over a decade. I've dined at fine restaurants across the world, and my husband has worked in fine dining for most of his career. The portions would be small even for a tapas restaurant. Words seriously cannot express how minuscule these portions were.

We called for our server, who had spent the last half hour changing radio stations. We explained that we were going to request the check, and asked that the calamari, which was not at all like any of us imagined, be sent back to the kitchen.

She was incredibly rude, informed us that "It describes it on the menu, the owner's here, she's not going to let me take it off." As I've mentioned already, my husband and I both have worked in fine dining for years, and we were shocked. We would NEVER have been so contentious to a table. I told her that we'd like to speak to the owner. There was NO WAY we were going to pay $10 for a plate of cabbage!

The owner came up and informed us that nobody ever complains about the non-existent calamari, that it's her most popular item, but she would take it off the bill. We were all stunned at both the server and the owner's un-professional manner.

As I've said before, I'm very familiar with fine dining and the fact that fine dining often has smaller portions than casual dining restaurants. I was expecting smaller portions, I was NOT expecting portions so small that they wouldn't cover the palm of my hand!

I especially wasn't expecting such unprofessional conduct from both the staff and the owner. We ended up paying for our wine and leaving. We went to a cheap greasy spoon called Batt's Grill, an old standby which gave us a ton of good food for the price of a children's meal at the Beachaines 211.

Beauchaines 211 made me REALLY miss Indigo Marsh, a fine dining restaurant with great food, good portions, and NO ATTITUDE. Don't waste your time and your money....and if you do, get ready to grab a bite to eat somewhere else afterwards because the portions wouldn't satisfy an anorexic.
