Digiorno's PIzza & Boneless Wyngz (Rating 1)



Food:
DiGiorno's Pizza & Boneless Wyngz
Rating: / 5
no star given for appearance
no star given for taste
no star given for quality
given for price
no star given for return customer


Scale 1 - Appearance
Appearance of the box - very appetizing. We've been wanting to try this for months! Once we took it out of the box, though...not so appetizing. There were seven boneless "wyngz." (And by seven, we mean just seven bites.) The pizza itself was also relatively small. Half the pizza was probably equivalent to one "normal" slice of pizza.
No star out of one star given for appearance.




Scale 2 - Taste
If we liked eating cardboard - we'd have liked this. The sauce for the "wyngz" was good - and the pepperoni. Those were the only things that had any taste. Not a fulfilling meal...at all. We would have been better off sticking with a normal Digiorno's stuffed crust pizza.
No star out of one star given for taste.


Scale 3 - Quality
If we liked cardboard - A+ for quality. BUT - we aren't goats. So...no go for quality.
No star out of one star given for quality.


Scale 4 - Price
It came out to about $12. Not a bad price when you consider that it was the cost for two people for a meal. (However - I'd rather spend my money elsewhere! I'd also rather YOU spend your money elsewhere!)
One star out of one star given for price.



Scale 5 - Would you go again?
Absolutely not. We're happy we tried it though - so we know to never try again!
No star out of one star given for returning.


Five out of five stars given to Digiorno's Pizza & Boneless Wyngz.
We suggest you give another frozen meal a try...or just order a pizza fro a local place!

Complimentary house sushi roll


Complimentary house miso soup

Scale 1 - Appearance
Appearance of the restaurant - not bad. The outside is a little dull, especially since it is not in a stand-alone building. The inside, though, makes up for it. Very well decorated and great lighting.
Appearance of the staff - everyone was very well-mannered and neat.
Appearance of the food - beautiful! The sushi was definitely a piece of art. The rest of the meal was great looking as well.
One star out of one star given for appearance.



Scale 2 - Taste
The complimentary sushi roll (the "Holiday roll") and salad were delicious. The sushi roll ordered was incredible, along with the chicken hibachi meal. Two thumbs up to it all!
One star out of one star given for taste.



Scale 3 - Quality
The quality of the food was phenomenal. You could tell that all of the sushi was fresh and hadn't been sitting around for quite some time. (The quantity of the hibachi was exceptional, too!)
One star out of one star given for quality.



Scale 4 - Price
For dinner, the total came to about $63 (including a tip) - for two glasses of house red wine, two salads, two soups, a sushi roll, and two hibachi meal - not too bad! If you're on a budget, you could definitely get a delicious dinner for a great price.
One star out of one star given for price.



Scale 5 - Would you go again?
Yes, we would both go again - we are already a returning customer!
One star out of one star given for returning.


Five out of five stars given to Fancy Sushi.
We suggest you try some sushi & a meal there!

Yes to Carrots Moisturuzing Eye Contour Cream (Rating O1




Product:
Yes to Carrots Eye Contour Cream
Rating: / 5
given for appearance
no star given for usefulness
no star given for quality
no star given for price
no star given for return customer


Scale 1 - Appearance
Appearance of the label was wonderful - the colors were great, it was easy to read, and it was very informative. There was nothing missing from the label and it wasn't too cluttered.
One star out of one star given for appearance.


Scale 2 - Usefulness
Does this product do what it says it does? In this case, did it provide moisture? No. It actually caused a really bad irritating. Camille had to cease using this product - it caused her eyes to become swollen. Not only that, but it did not provide any moisture to her face.
No star out of one star given for taste.


Scale 3 - Quality
Since the product caused irritation, we are not able to say this is a quality product. We understand that products have different reactions on everyone's skin - but - Camille is not a sensitive person when it comes to face products...this is the first time something like this has ever happened.
No star out of one star given for quality.


Scale 4 - Price
This particular eye cream came in a set - it also came with moisturizing face lotion and face wash. It was near $22 for all three. Not a bad price since I got 3 different items. However, if I were to buy this product separately next time, it is close to $9.
No star out of one star given for price.


Scale 5 - Would you go again?
No. Camille would never use this product again!
No star out of one star given for returning.


One out of five stars given to Yes to Carrot's Eye Contour Cream.
If you give this product a try, we suggest you be careful...especially if you have sensitive skin!

Oceanside Beach Bar & Grill (Rating 5)

Oceanside Beach Grille
Rating: / 5

given for return customer


Scale 1 - Appearance
Appearance of the restaurant - unless you know where you're going, you're most likely to miss it. We were meeting a group of people here and knew the general direction it was in - we had to turn around at one point, knowing we had gone too far, and luckily noticed we had driven right by it. The outside is pretty decent. The inside is very clean and well organized!
Appearance of the staff - everyone was very well-kempt and put together. Best of all was everyone's attitude - nice, professional, great!
Appearance of the food - incredibly appetizing!
One star out of one star given for appearance.


Scale 2 - Taste
Both Vincenzo and I got an iced tea. Most of the other people we went with ordered coffee or hot tea. Most people ordered breakfast and everyone said it tasted delicious. Both Vincenzo and I ordered a turkey club on a wrap (had to have it changed to a wrap instead of a normal sandwich.) Vincenzo got a side of coleslaw, Camille ordered a side of vegetables. The wraps were incredible. Great portion but most importantly, very tasty! The coleslaw was above-par as were the side of vegetables. The vegetables (zucchini, squash) were cooked and in some type of delicious sauce. We'd both ordered it again.
One star out of one star given for taste.


Scale 3 - Quality
We came with a large party - at least 20 of us. The staff was SO welcoming and nice. They didn't complain or seem overwhelmed. They frequented the table to see if we needed anything else...always bringing a smile on their faces! Very speedy, very nice, very courteous!
One star out of one star given for quality.


Scale 4 - Price
For dinner, the total came to about $26 (including a tip) - for lunch, a little pricey, but well worth it! We tipped them a little extra since their service and food was phenomenal.
One star out of one star given for price.


Scale 5 - Would you go again?
Yes, we would both go again. We are looking forward to trying other menu options there next time, too!
One star out of one star given for returning.


Five out of five stars given to Oceanside Beach Bar & Grill.
We suggest you have some lunch there!

Mikato Japanese Steakhouse (Rating 5)


Restaurant:
Mikato Japanese Steakhouse in St. Augustine, FL
Rating: / 5
given for appearance
given for taste
given for quality
given for price
given for return customer


Scale 1 - Appearance
Appearance of the restaurant - the outside isn't the prettiest. It's in a shopping plaza. It's ugly. The inside, though, is great! Great decorations. We sat at the sushi bar instead of the hibachi grill - very nicely decorated sushi bar.
Appearance of the staff - fantastic. The server we had was a sweetheart. The two gentleman at the sushi bar were very nice, as well.
Appearance of the food - the salad look appetizing and our sushi boat was great! We've had some sushi boats that were a huge mess. This sushi boat we had certainly was not a mess - it was gorgeous. You can tell how much time each roll took to make.
One star out of one star given for appearance.



Scale 2 - Taste
To start, we had a house Cabernet. It was decent. Vincenzo wasn't a fan of it, Camille didn't mind it. We decided to get a sushi boat - it came with only one salad so we ordered an extra so we'd each have a salad. Vincenzo had the ginger dressing which he thought was delicious, Camille had the mayonnaise dressing - always good! The sushi boat came with four different sushi rolls - Spicy Tuna Roll, Florida Roll (tuna, salmon, cucumber, crab, avocado), Hurricane Roll (tuna, crab salad, avocado, cucumber with crunch and roe on top), Eel roll (eel in the middle, deep fried, with eel sauce on top). All of them had a unique, delicious taste. Camille's favorite was the eel roll and Vincenzo's was the Hurricane Roll.
One star out of one star given for taste.


Scale 3 - Quality
Quality of the service was great. Our waitress came back multiple times to see if we needed anything else, along with telling us about herself. The quality of the food was exceptional. You could tell (and see, being at the sushi bar!) that everything was fresh and clean.
One star out of one star given for quality.


Scale 4 - Price
For dinner, the total came to $43.20 (without a tip) - not bad! That came with two glasses of wine as well. The wine was $7/piece which is pretty normal for a glass of wine. Since two people were splitting a sushi boat, it would have been nice of them to throw in another salad instead of charging an additional $2.50 for a tiny bowl full of lettuce.
One star out of one star given for price.



Scale 5 - Would you go again?
Yes, we would both go again. In fact, this is one of our favorite "go to" places in St. Augustine. We will be back and give a review for the hibachi food.
One star out of one star given for returning.


Five out of five stars given to Mikato Japanese Steakhouse.
We suggest you chow down on some sushi there!
