The appetizer was sashimi which was a work of art and tasted out of this world. This was by far the best... More

We could enjoy the sunset and stay comfortable. The market testing menu was delicious but the portions were too large. The scallops alone were enough for a meal and I brought... More

The menu featured a four course meal at a very attractive price. Every entree was excellent. Our party of four ordered different items. Every selection was delicious. Our server (mark) was knowledgeable and professional. We could not have asked for and received a better experience. The best compliment is a return visit and we will continue to dine at 1500... More
