My wife had read about Sienna some time ago and decided to take me for our aniversary. I have to say we have enjoyed a few Italian places here in town adila, Bocci's and genneras to name a few and we found dishes we enjoy there very much. Well suffice it to say once we had our apetizer of Frito misto and treviso salad we were hooked! If I dared to desribe the veal and pasta we enjoyed I am sure I would butcher it. When we left my wife stated that was the best meal she has ever paid for in her life. I would not go that far as I am a steak man but we can not wait to try the tasting menus with wine pairing! Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to a meal at Sienna, you will be hooked.
Went to Poogans with some high expectations only to be disappointed. My wife and I ordered the queen street apet and it was cooked with oysters that had not been cleaned whatsoever. Then while we were waiting for our meals the waitress knocked over my wifes cosmo all over the table and in our bread (biscuit) baskett then tried to claim it was my wifes fault for leaving the wine menu on the table. Note: She dropped numerous items on the floor while we there, trying to stuff things into her way to tight outfit. My wife ordered the pecan encrusted flounder, well it was encrusted alright with what I don;t know and neither did my wife. When the waitress asked if everything was okay we said no she couldn't eat the fish and she didn;t want anything else. My calabash came with over cooked catfish 2 oysters like the apt and a couple fo schrimp. The beans and rice were good and the veggies were cooked very well but the rest I would have thrown out if I were home cooking it myself. The bill came without a visit from the manager about the flounder or an apology about the drink that went all over the table and on to my white shirt. I have to say the atsmophere was very nice but the food was terrible.
