Seven Restaurant & Bar

Seven’s Web site states, “If you do not say ‘WOW’ when you walk into Seven for the first time, we will be surprised.” Well, we didn’t. We did, however, say it when we saw the prices listed for grilled lamb chops, underseasoned spaghetti with clams, and salmon on mashed potatoes. This is not to say that the loungy decor isn’t attractive—a chandelier of glass bubbles makes a statement—and that there aren’t some highlights: the fluffy broccoli soufflé, the branzino pomodoro, and the wine list, which boasts plenty of smaller Central Coast labels.
