Last night, a few of us decided to capitalize on the 25 for 25 again and try out Ponti. I was totally disappointed.
The first course was a beet salad. Not enough dressing, but overall, the beets were fresh and good, and kudos for including yellow beets. I wasn't blown away, but I was feeling optimistic. My second course rapidly burst that bubble. I had ordered the Halibut Enchiladas in Lobster Cream Sauce. It arrived and was barely warm and tasted like nothing. The fish had not been seasoned at all. I had to add a ton of salt just to give it any flavor. Dessert was supposed to be chocolate mousse. Have you ever been to Cost Plus and bought the instant mousse mix? This stuff was along the same lines, but included strawberry goo and a cookie. It was nasty - and served warm.
Overall, it was one of those meals where I just left feeling like I got robbed. Ponti is on my personal boycott list now.
