Port Orchard, WA
I recently had my hair "updated" at Essentials with the owner Allison Saunders. She did an excellent job on my hair color (red) and didn't even charge me for a haircut because I only needed a little trim. Nice, clean and professional-looking salon with reasonable prices. She also sells some cute sunglasses and bags.
This salon is new to downtown Port Orchard and I highly recommend Allison. My friend had her hair done there also and it looked great...very natural look.
I love this place! Food was fantastic! Service excellent and what a great classy atmosphere. One of my favorite places in Scottsdale and that's saying a lot...because Scottsdale has a lot of great restaurants. This is not a cheap place to eat but I thought it was great value for the money.
We had dinner Sunday evening August 12, 2007. We were seated by the door leading to the outside deck which was drafty, especially each time the door opened..which was frequently.
While our waitress was friendly, she evidently wasn't being well-supported by the other waitstaff, as it was a long wait for 2 glasses of wine. Our salad and soup took a long time coming, such that we were still eating them when the main course arrrived. The bread was unremarkable.
My mahi mahi was supposed to be "macadamia nut encrusted" but it was mushy not crusty at all. There were a pile of whole macadamia nuts on the plate, though. The overall impression was that it was very mediocre food and service for the price. We also weren't asked what type of starch we preferred for either dish.
Last but not least, the blackberry slump was watery...again, quite mediocre. I left quite disappointed and won't likely return.
