Place not busy enough to be raced out!! Not worth it!!!!!!! – New Years Eve, first sitting, not busy enough to be rushed out! Server could not describe the items on set menu. Servers sequence of delivering the wine paired dishes was a race!!! Food was good, too small! We would have stayed and had coffee if we would have been offered! Had we been invited to the bar to stay for music, we would have bought cocktails or a bottle of champagne! They did not need our table!!!!! Place was slow part of the night!!!! We left hungry and disappointed that we picked 40 Sardines as our destination to dine, and that we wasted money on the experience!!! They had us out in less than an hour!!!!!!! Unacceptable

best red snapper – We decided to try out 40 Sardines during the Back in the Swing promotion. My husband and I really enjoy tasting menus. We tried out the 3-course tasting menu that was made for this promotion. My husband had chose the red snapper for his main course. It was delicious! I had pork chops, which was wonderful as well. We will definitely be going back! No complaints here!

Delightful cuisine – This is a "must try" resaurant. It is my favorite and the favorite of many people I know. The menu selections are thoughtful, innovative, delicious and well-presented. They have an enticing array of specialty drinks, and feature mouth-watering desserts! The chefs are top-notch (with years of experience at high ranking restaurants) and so is the ambiance and service. If you have a well-rounded palate that seeks new and creative cuisine (and very reasonable prices), this may become your area haunt. You can dress up or go casual.

Laughable disaster – 40 Sardines is a perfect example of what I refer to as a "Barbie Dream Restaurant" -- some inept, wannabe-chef's naive, hodgepodge fantasy. Just like a purple plastic house with a hot tub and an elevator but no basic livability... 40 Sardines has its own private-label sparkling water in stylish blue bottles and a million ingredients on the dischordant menu, but can't dress a salad or uncork a bottle of wine to save its own life. Whoever designed the menu has a palate like a cow's backside. But, it's a good giggle to read. We ordered two of the most foolproof items from the menu -- the ribeye, and the short rib -- and even those were poorly executed. The only way this restaurant will survive is if it completely revisits its menu, or if it becomes a meat-market bar where people don't sit down to eat until they've had so much to drink that they don't taste the food or notice the service. The sooner they take measures to fix this laughable disaster, the less likely they will be to go under and cost their investors everything. Good luck, 40 Sardines, and get moving.

Urbanite restaurant romances the suburbs. – The Scene
The blues and acid-greens on the walls and the three-dimensional layered ceiling give the dining experience a serene quality, even though the dining room may be a bit noisy. Tables are decorated with Gerber daises floating in water. The dining room and the bar tend to be separated by age, seniors in the dining room and young professionals soaking at the bar.
 
The Food
You'll be missing something if you don't start out with the mushroom and gruyere cheese tart topped with salad greens and a zinfandel reduction. The monkfish, marinated in paprika, melts in the mouth, and the rack of lamb glazed in guava barbeque sauce is a marvel for all senses. Quite possibly, the romance of this whole endeavor lies in the splitting of a chocolate espresso cake or the Cava margarita float (tequila lime sorbet swimming in champagne).
