This was one of our favorite restaurants. We called to make a reservation for Christmas Eve and a recording stated that they were permanently closed. A sad loss for the culinary world.

We had appetizers here before our night out and was welcomed with a friendly smile and impeccable service! I wish I remembered the name of our wonderful waitress, she was very accommodating and sincere. Loved her and the food!

My husband and I enjoyed dinner at this Japanese restaurant in our hotel. The ambience in the room was nice and we were seated quickly beside large windows looking out to the street. The warm scallops were bathed in a delicious miso sauce. I ordered the lobster bomb which a generous portion of tempura lobster beautifully displayed surrounded by lobster... More

Nice menu, suffers a bit from being too modern. Don't come here if you want real authentic sushi. Great Sake menu. Located inside a hotel so will have that business diners vibe. Good for a midweek dinner with no frills.

We went for Social Hour which was great you get to try things as small plates. We did, and ended up getting large dinner portions of the rolls. The next day we took our friends and had the large portion of the scallops. They are the best we ever had. I would HIGHLY recommend this place and ask for Lili.

Ate dinner with my sister while we were staying at the hotel, Sonesta, where it's located. The food was to die for! Inexpensive and all kinds of food & Flavors combined in one plate. Totally awesome & will eat there again!

I really really wanted to love this place! The ambience is great! The service....Not good at all. The plus side is the food was incredible. Bottom line is if you don't mind waiting extra long for food and drink refills this is a fantastic place. If poor service will send you running out the door, then just stay away to... More

I went there alone last night and the sushi was amazing. However my server never came to see if I needed anything after receiving my food. I had to ask another server for things and told another worker that he should let the manager know my experience was horrible. The manager did not come acknowledge me and the server questioned...

If you are going to make people wait over one hour for 2 sushi rolls, you might as well pack it up and close your restaurant. It was not even busy in there. Never to go back.
