My daughter and I had a great meal after a show. We didn't have a reservation so we had to wait. Next time I'll make sure that I have a reservation on Saturday night. What a great meal!

This is an excellent restaurant. The atmosphere is great, well furnished. The food is Asian Fusion, leaning towards Japanese. This is a locally owned establishment and was a pleasant surprise for Sunday lunch. Pricing is reasonable.

Used to be My Favorite place in town. Not anymore. Since they moved locations. Don't like the new decor. And the food was not up to the standards that it used to be. Very disappointing. My girlfriend & I will not likely be back.

The food, as always was out of this world. Love the ahi appetizer, and the crab wontons, and the wine list is fabulous. Mango martini's are also a treat. Can't... More

I'm not much on sushi but their California was delicious. We ate off of the lunch menu which was fairly expensive. I imagine the dinner menu is quite pricy. Still it... More

Great place. When I walked in I was instantly struck with the atmosphere- it is very modern yet welcoming, upscale. I sat at the bar and found that I could take advantage of the Happy Hour Offering. I ordered the ribs, salt and pepper chicken and the spinach and mushroom Risotto. All were good but the Risotto was amazing. The... More
