Savory of Encinitas

PGB | Sep 25, 2006 05:37 AM

I had tried Savory several years ago when it first opened and found the food mixed with not so good service. So my wife and I decided to try once again after hearing good things. What we found was much more attentive service, good (but not great) food, and some surprisingly high prices for certain staples. FOr example a mixed green and goat chees salad with nothing else added, and an average size was $11.00. And tea was $4.50. The main courses were more typically priced, ranging from the low to high $20s. The blue-fin tuna prepared with cubes of polenta, string beans and onions was ok. The tuna portion was generous, but it was not quite sashimi grade as advertised by the waitress. My wife had lamb shank which was very tasty. They have a large selection of wine by the glass, mostly from small CA wineries. Just a few French wines. Most are in the $10-$12 range.

Overall I'd rate it a solid B, but not higher.
