Great food, good advice

I visited this place for some dinner. The recommendation I was given by my waiter was absolutely spot on. Spicy sushi and sushi with a taste of green apple was a great combination. Already looking forward to my next visit.

The sushi is great here. You can't go wrong with any of their specialty rolls. I have actually had the Hong Kong noodles there too and asked them to make it extra spicy. They are phenomenal. Still find it dd eating noodles at a sushi restaurant!!

I actually stumbled upon this place and thought sure sushi sounds good. The sushi was fresh and tasty. The signature rolls were creative and they have a small patio and I was able to eat outside. I will definitely be coming back. Great job.

We really enjoyed our dinner here. The sushi was good and the salad with carrot ginger dressing was fresh. The sauce on the zen noodle bowl needs more flavor, but we still enjoyed it. A good value and the server was very attentive.

A recent visit to watch Chef Jessie and his staff cook some great food included a spur of the moment special of mussels in boulibase broth. Along with some pesto crostini's the mussels were expertly cooked and perfectly presented. We had already ordered some other meals which we packed up and took home for another meal as the mussels were... More

I had a very enjoyable early lunch today. This used to be more of a "form a line and order; we'll deliver" place, but has been remodeled into a regular restaurant. It is very relaxing. I had two veggie dishes--risotto with mushroom and garlic spinach. My server, Michael, was so charismatic and professional. The atmosphere is beautiful--highly recommend. Cloth napkins,... More

I had a wonderful lunch yesterday.The food was amazing! Organic, fresh, gluten free. The salads are amazing and some of the best I have ever had. The service was amazing and we felt like royalty in a lovely café at the mall.

Had a lovely shop at Nordstrom's and, as usual, we had a lovely cappuccino that the bistro. We like it better than Starbucks, the coffee doesn't bite.
