This place was recommended by our hotel front desk and we were very happy they did. It has a quirky decor but the food was fantastic, a mix of Japanese and modern seafood. Everything we had was great. Wait staff were also very helpful and friendly.

My husband and I were referred by the front desk in our hotel to this gem of a restaurant! We have to say that you absolutely have to have the shrimp curry soup. My husband got a bowl, and I didn't! When he went to the restroom, I told him not to leave that soup alone with me! You may... More

Delicious fish and seafood dishes. Asian California cuisine. Entree about $30 and worth it. Romantic setting. Small place. You have to walk down some stairs. Must make reservation or you will never get in. They are not open for lunch so you have to call and make the dinner reservation.

This place was recommended by the inn that we stayed at. Went there the first night. Long wait since we didn't have reservation, so we left. We returned next night with reservation and were seated promptly. Once you seated, you get free fried wonton with salsa.

Very friendly staff. Tony was very courteous and on the ball. The black bean halibut was very good. I eat Asian and Asian fusion often. I expected more based on all the reviews , but it may be it was my familiarity with the cuisine.
