attitudes @ food establishments?
November 28, 2005
OK I have been a big Sirriannis suporter for sometime now, but does anyone else seem to feel they have developed a bit of an attitude?
It seems to me that they decided they were the only game in town and no longer needed to concern themselves with treating people like wanted guests.
I still go but not as frequently. I would like to see them return to to the place that I first learned to enjoy which gave you not just good food but good, if sometimes a little funky, hospitality as well.
I don't go very often because the quality of the pizza seems to have deteriorated. The crust is thick and dry. I don't mind dry, bread crust but it must be thin like Pizza Paradisio or Sete in downtown DC or even Mr. Tucker's just outside Cumberland, which has surprisingly good pizza and generally decent service.
Also, after a long drive, I don't want to wait 1 hour for dinner. It's easier just to pick up a frozen pie at the Shop & Save and eat in. I'm going to try Cayotes on my next run to the valley.
In fairness to Siriani's, I think staffing in Davis is a big challenge. The town probably needs to look into getting a seasonal work force of foreign students, similar to what you now see at many other resorts in the NE. These kids could breath some life into the place.
I've been there one time, last Feb., and I'll pass from here on out. I thought the food was fine, but the service was absolutely lousy.
The place was almost empty and it took us almost an hour before they served us our food.
John, Coyotes is quite tasty. Me, the wife, mom-in-law and son carried out there this past saturday. They got the fish-n-chips and I got the Coyote burger. Good eats and the manager there was really friendly and outgoing. Definately reccomend the joint
I'll second Coyotes. We have eaten there many times now, and never had a bad meal. This surprises me considering the large number of different menu items they carry. The crab cakes are great, as well as the steaks. I thought service was a little challenged though.
We still look forward to Sirianos when we're up in the Valley. Pizza is a really personal thing I guess, but I still think they make great pies there. The place does get crowded on weekends and service is sometimes not great, but nothing has happened there to keep us from coming back.
We had a great dinner in the Hickory Room at the Canaan Valley State Park lodge on Saturday. They have updated the room and it has a really nice atmosphere now. Service was pleasent but slow. - I think there is a trend here.
