Was anyone else disappointed with the Tom Sietsema's restaurant review guide? I usually am much more in-tune with him than Phyllis Richman, but I found myself disagreeing with many of his recommendations. For example (and remember, this is IMHO and experience):

Inn at Little Wash. - NOT a romantic place for dinner. I told the reservation person that this was our 10th anniv. and he still didn't put us in the room overlooking the garden. Almost everyone who goes there comes for a special occasion and the deuces (tables for two) are right on top of each other!

Addies - Disappointed everytime I've gone there (and I've tried it 3 times). The steak (ribeye?) that is supposed to be one of their specialities was tough like leather (even at Med-Rare). On another occasion, before I ordered the tuna that was cooked medium rare, I asked if it was sushi quality (fresh enough to be eaten raw). When told yes, I ordered and then could not eat because it was beyond fishy. And I love fish, every kind...

I have other examples, but eager to hear other opinions on the piece...
