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.

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.

Great food including salads, sandwiches and terrific service. The Nordstrom experience comes to food. Clean, nice food, pleasant atmosphere and timely and efficient service makes this a great lunch stop while in the mall.

My husband and I ate dinner here for the first time while on a short vacation to Tampa. This restaurant is in an area with several other restaurants (attached to a high end mall). I am not a lover of sushi, but we decided to try the food here, as they had other Asian dishes as well. I ordered a... More

Need a break from all of the shopping? Seek out this little place secured within Nordstrom. The food is casual American but served in a crisp, clean atmosphere.
