Bellevue >Pogacha Restaurant
Never going back. Having dined at the Issaquah Pogacha, the Bellevue location pales abysmally. We were seated at a small table for two under the air conditioning vent, en route to the restaurant's restrooms. As far as i am concerned, the shiny violet menu lied to me about what i ordered---braised lamb shank. The description was of a rich, savoury shank which had been cooking all day and would be served with a side of julienned veggies. When it finally arrived, it was a cold, grey shank, swimming in insipid broth, serving as a raft for the drowing mirepoix (yes it had been julienned) in which it had been cooking all day. Off the top of my head, i can't remember what my dining partner ordered, but it was equally misrepresented by the menu. For the price, we were extremely disappointed and didn't stick around for dessert to see if it could get any worse. Also, despite the price, the establishment itself was not terribly formal and the kitchen staff worked in plain view wearing black polo shirts and slacks instead of proper chef-wear.
Great salads!. Pogacha has a wonderful selection of salads. They're fresh, fun and flavorful. I love going here with my friends and business colleagues for lunch and with my husband (who loves the pasta and great beef/lamb burger) for dinner.
