Excellent lobster ravioli. A little expensive, but worth it.

First things first, we walked in after a Bruins game (and chose this place as there were other people wearing B's jerseys inside). We were greeted with a confused "Can I help you?"... not a "Good evening? How many??". After I said, 2 for dinner, he looked at my boyfriend and told him "You have to take off your hat." I mean, give him a second to sit down and take it off. We were sat in a far corner, near the bathroom (probably for the young people who they think won't pay). I tried to order a gin and tonic and was told rudely "beer or wine only". I was confused as there is a full bar in the restaurant, but apparently it is there for show?? I ordered a glass of wine, my boyfriend a beer. We got calamari, a Caesar salad and the lobster ravoli, to split (I asked if sharing meals was okay, he said "you can do whatever" with the worst attitude). The calamari was cooked perfectly, but had no flavor at all. The red sauce was bland... no basil or garlic. The salad was not worth its $10 at all. The ravioli was good and was a decent sized portion, but not worth the money. My boyfriend could have made a better meal for a lot cheaper in a MUCH more pleasant atmosphere. All in all, we were treated horribly, probably because of our age. I agree with a previous person about the treatment due to age. We are in our mid twenties, were out after a game and wanted a good meal. We always tip 20% when service is great, but they generalized us. I am sure they didn't like that we split the meal... For those three things, 1 beer and 1 glass of wine, the bill was almost $65. WHAT?! And because our service was brutal, guess what?! We tipped poorly. They deserved what they got. Plenty of other places in the north end where EVERYONE will be treated like a celebrity and given great service.
