Phoenix Rising, Rhinebeck--disappointed

Betsy | May 29, 2005 07:56 AM

H and I tried Phoenix Rising on Friday, and while the service was very good, the food was disappointing. I ordered the margherita pizza, and was served something that looked like the product of a pizza-making kit at Sam's Club. The sauce was nothing like anything I'd ever tasted before--like watered-down ketchup. I'm not sure what's up with that--if I wanted pizza from a kit, I'd make it at my house. H's salad was strange too--and the soup wasn't very good either. Maybe we're just ordering the wrong things? I had such high hopes for this place.
