There were some dishes I loved at Senia and some that disappointed.  Overall the dinner and service was good.  Not sure if I would run back here again for dinner but maybe will try for lunch one day.  We were seated in a small booth separated from the main dining room and looking at the legs of patrons sitting at the counter.  Could peer over the counter a bit to see the kitchen staff working which was interesting.  The beginning of the meal blew my mind. Ahi Tuna on a buttery Brioche.  Incredible flavor and delicious.  The Poke Crackers were also delicious. With these two dishes down I thought I had found a favorite new restaurant.  Then came the Chicken Liver Mousse.  It smelled horrible and tasted even worse.  Not one of us could eat more than a small bite of this and it was given back to the waitress 98% untouched.  My girls did however eat all the toast that came with the Mousse.  This was one of the worst tasting dishes on this blog this year and one of the worst ever.  The BBQ Beets with Avocado got the meal back on track.  We all liked this dish and would order it again and again.  The Hamachi Tataki looked pretty cool and was fun to open and see what was inside.  The Hamachi however smelled and tasted fishy.  I could only eat one bite but the Wife finished it all.  The Sweet Corn Ravioli was fantastic.  A dish that I would definitely order again.  The Papardelle with Duck Ragu was also delicoius.  My Daughter was sold on the Tomahawk Steak Special because it came with Onion Rings.  Problem is the Steak arrived with no Onion Rings.  We inquired with the server and in a few minutes the coolest presentation of Onion Rings arrived.  The Onion Rings were FANTASTIC!  One of the best parts of the meal.  The Steak was good too but by the time it came we were so full from all of the other dishes that we could barely put a dent in it.  Ended up taking it home.  Lots of good things here and can really tell the Chef cares about what goes on his plates.  Just a few things we did not like out of many that we did like.
