Terrible Food & Disappointing Service.
After reading an overview of Fusion Point in the Folio Weekly and cross-referencing that with the 5 star review on citysearch, I was excited to try the restaurant last night. Unfortunately, the food was terrible and the service was disappointing.
I ordered one sushi roll and one teriyaki steak entree. The server mistakenly providede me with teriyaki chicken, as opposed to the steak that I ordered, so I tried that along with my roll. The rice in the sushi roll was overcooked, the teriyaki sauce was extremely salty and the chicken was dry. The curry rice that came with the dinner was decent, but it contrasted sharply with the teriyaki. I am a fan of fusion, but the restaurant needs to carefully rethink its food pairings.
It took over 20 minutes for the sushi to arrive and as previously stated, I was provided with the wrong dinner entree. When I inquired about the wait time, the server simply said that she was not responsible for putting in the sushi order! The kicker came when the staff failed to ask a loud and obnoxious customer to lower her tone. I can tolerate a lot of things and I am reluctant to leave a restaurant beore my meal is completed, but I could not tolerate the explicatives that this woman continuously espoused. I'm talking F@#@ this and F%$^ that.
Overall, it was a horrible experience and I will not return. If the food had been good or even decent, I may have given it another try . . . but as things stand I will be taking my business elsewhere.
My favorite in St. Augustine!. This restaurant is a treasure! I have enjoyed their food for many years....each meal is delicious, beautifully prepared and presented. My favorite is the Vegie/Tofu Curry or the Pan Fried Noodles, but everything I've tried is THE best! The appetizers and sushi are excellent,too.
