Pleasantly surprised with the meal here. They have a very large specials menu with extremely creative sushi and everything is presented beautifully. The specials are presented on a tablet and you can scroll through and see the pictures which is a nice touch. The atmosphere is relaxing and the staff was friendly and apologized for being slow although it really... More

Our large party was handled gracefully on a busy night. The room is small but modern and clean. Our waitress was helpful and efficient. The food was fresh and presented with artful care. A very good experience and will be back.

So many choices, so little time, and such beautiful presentation. The dining room, itself, is beautiful, particularly at night. Soft light, soothing colors, little noise. The menu features a dazzling array of nigiri, maki, sashimi, and "sushi as art" creations, supplemented by (the evening we were there) 56 additional specials offered on a hand-held tablet (which, we discovered after playing...

We went for lunch last week and will definitely be returning soon! With only 2 people eating it was impossible to try as many of the interesting menu options as we would have liked, but everything we had was delicious. Our favorites were the Cherry Blossom roll - salmon, avocado, tempura crumbs and tuna - and the Unagi Sandwich -... More

We like this place as a family for a good dependable sushi. We have been there multiple times over the last couple of months for lunch and had a very good experience every time. Their lunch combos are very good and filling.

This place always has great sushi. The prices are affordable and the wait staff is extremely attentive. I have been here a number of times and have never been disappointed, either for lunch or dinner. The sashimi platter is a little expensive for what you get, but the fish is always fresh and the presentation nice.

Despite telling them about allergies (and we get vegetarian sushi- with avocado cucumber etc) they put the whole order in one box- with the mayo dressing- so one of my kids who is allergic - to eggs and milk- i could not give the food to. Pricey too. Additionally, we are vegetarian, and when we got home with our take... More

A bit pricey compared to Tokyo, but they have a lot of nice dishes available. I had a nice tempura soba serving today - big serving and very tasty. Service is a bit rushed and although the staff looks Japanese, they seem to have dropped the Japanese way somewhere years ago ;-)
