Had the opportunity to try Ferris' again for the first time in too long.

I had the delicious potstickers. We sat out on the back patio--a real treat. Try it while the weather's still warm.

I went there last week to try the regular burger. I thought it was pricey and mediocre. I like the location and I'll try some regular food there in the future.

Soooo - we are FINALLY going to try this place (with kids) after living here for 14+ years (I know!).

 

What should we order? (other than the Cioppino!)

The Chicken Penne Soup is also good :) 

 

Really you can't go wrong it is a great place. If you like oysters and are a bit adventurous I would suggest the Oysters Caliente pasta as well, it is amazing.

Mixed baked oyster platter for sure. Big appy though, comes with great bread and whole bulb of roasted garlic and great Caesar salad to share.

Noodles and curries are all great, burgers and ... Honestly I've not had a bad meal there.

One of my all time faves.

I agree - it's all good. My current favourites are the oyster burger with sweet potato fries with the trio of dipping sauces. Or the Indonesian prawns if I want lunch that is not followed by a nap. They're not afraid to feed you.

Agreed!  You can add a couple of extra rice balls, then have them split it - it's a meal for two as the portions are generally large.

One of our favorite pastas.  The Nonna Marcella (braised pork shoulder simmered with tomato, butter, fennel seed and chili, tossed with penne and grated parmesan).  If you like spicy pork, it's just awesome and it's enough to share (that's a pic of a split portion), especially if you start with a Caesar Salad and finish with a Sandy's Brownie (one of the best on the planet).  Enjoy!

And if you feel like going healthier (although that IS a very large slab of compound butter), try their Grilled Wild Salmon, the best salmon deal around for $21.

Just a tip Gary H, try resizing your photos for posting. I open my photos with microsoft office  and then resize them to "web small".

There used to be an image resizer "powertoy" for Windows XP, but that was removed for Windows 7.

 

This crafty developer replaced it:  http://imageresizer.codeplex.com/

 

Download and install that, and any image can be resized simply by right-clicking it and selecting "Resize pictures".

Thanks for the suggestions on resizing, but the forum software is already resizing them - down to 1200x900.  On my iPad the images are scaled appropriately to fit the screen so I don't understand the issue.  I for one really appreciate seeing larger images on the desktop for the details they provide.  That's why I like VV, if I want to see small inline images I'll go to Facebook.

Yes but those big photos are making me hungry. :)

 

I was just throwing it out there in case you didn't know.....if you are happy with what you see, go for it. Just don't make them look so damned good.

The forum automatically resizes images as Gary said, so if you're uploading a 4000 pixel wide photo it'll be chopped to 1600.

Know it all.
