3.5 Stars. Have been there twice. Once for the brunch and just recently with friends to celebrate birthdays/engagements, etc. I must say that I wasn't overly impressed with the brunch. I'm a meat-lover and there weren't any meat dishes that I can even remember being that good. The salads looked decent, grilled cheese bar was kind of cool. Lobster Mac... More

This is a Japanese steakhouse. I had dinner there with 4 colleagues. We had a great steak and got great show show from the chef when he was preparing the food in front of us. Will absolutely come back when I'm in the area again.

We ALWAYS go here on Wednesdays when in town. The two for one steak and shrimp is always good. The chefs give you a great laugh. Sometimes the wait staff is a little slow. Overall we return again and again

The low bar stool cushions were filthy. If a friend had furniture that dirty I wouldn't sit down. They had a dirty trash cans visible to the guests. The food was great. Our chef was a little over the top. He made several inappropriate comments including when one of the teenagers asked where the restrooms were he said do it... More

Very entertaining dining experience. The chefs are great at catering to everyone's needs. The bar staff is also great. It's nice to have a drink as you wait for your table. Reservations are recommended.

Your food is cooked at a grill with seating for around 8. The food is excellent and the cook is engagingly and dexterously putting on a show as he cooks the meals .

The Scallops were the best I've ever had! The cooks are fun and very accommodating. Our group of twenty enjoyed every moment of it. This is always a stop on our annual trip.
