Favorite restaurant in the Keys, but no view.

We are locals and this is our favorite restaurant. The food is creative, fresh and amazing. However, you don't get a view of the water. Sometimes, when you're in the keys, you want to take your guests to place w a nice view. But when you do that, you also may give up on the quality of the food... read more

Food was Great! Very Busy and on holidays or Season you may have a wait. I love to either sit at the Bar or inside. Outside can be a bit hot. You need to try the Walu if you have never had it before it is excellent. I am very particular and have one favorite sushi place in Boca Raton... More

Great sushi, food and drinks! From the outside it does not look like much but everything was fantastic from service to sake. I would recommend watching the sunset somewhere and then coming here to enjoy your dinner.

Our hotel made a reservation for us, my husband and I. When we arrived, the staff made us wait although some tables were empty. After a while I asked for my table and the man told us he couldn't sit us if our party wasn't complete… He made a mistake with a party of 4… We finally sat and the... More

We dine here each visit and this time was the best ever. I highly recommend the Tempura fried lobster. Absolutely delicious. So beautifully plated that the woman at the next table asked if she could take a picture of it before I began eating. My husband enjoyed his sushi. The service was very good and it is an attractive place..

Had a party of 4 with no reservation and were seated immediately! My wife and 2 teenagers had the sushi which was very good and I had a trio of the daily catch which was very good. Even the dessert was great!

The sushi was flavorful. It took a while to prepare, but you're warned of that on the menu. The dessert was simple, and they're using Reddi-Whip instead of making theirs in-house.

A cute little restaurant that features lots of sushi, not too many dragon rolls and very expensive entrees. Fish very good but not too much Japanese like entrees. This is sort of s fusion place so if you're expecting more traditional Japanese food it's not.
