Wonderful experience , attended for lunch in order to get a sense of the place and price. After hearing all the commotion and his reputation via TV foodie shows, I thought I should check it out. The bar is a must-Zen setting; the floor plan is open , clean, upscale modern. On the pricy side and... read more

We went here for dinner on our last night in Napa after a long day of wine tasting, beer tasting, and road tripping. For us it was a bit of a destination dinner, since we have been fans of many of the celebrity chefs for several years and always wanted to try his restaurant just to say we had and... More

Great staff and lots of them. Despite being full the food came out super fast and all of it was delicious except the pork gyoza, wasn't... More

The chef choice menu (Omikase) is off the charts, delicious and presented with great beauty. The food is the freshest and tastes that are marvelous

This restaraunt is beautiful! The food is so pretty to look at! We only came in for a drink and dessert, and sat at the bar. The service was impeccable. The attention to detail given to each plate and each drink is unreal. We had fun just watching the wait staff and bartenders garnish drinks and plates.

Every bite is a great experience. The service was great and the food even better. I was there for lunch and was sitting on the terrace overlooking the river. Whenever I am back in Napa I will come back.

We came for my husbands birthday and it was amazing and they were so accommodating. I don't eat raw fish so you would wonder why I would come to this restaurant! My husband has been wanting to try the restaurant and he wanted the omakase. If you do the omakase, the whole table needs to do it. So they completely... More

There is really not need to have sushi here at inflated price - almost twice as expensive as elsewhere. Compare to sushi elsewhere, it has neither quality nor quantity. The same goes with their sake, where the mark-up is huge. If you really have to have a meal here, try their specialities. At least you are paying (the high price)... More
