We did a Office Open Bar with Appetizers here. The staff was very attentive and efficient. The appetizers were amazing and plenty. Will definitely go back again.

I've been there a few times and each time was a different time of the day. Spacious, modern, beautiful atmosphere. I especially enjoyed the desserts. Flourless chocolate cake with ice cream. The staff are a little cold personality wise. But, you don't eat the staff. So, it was a very good experience. Though at night the noise inside can get... More

Sushi in this place is so fresh. Good variety. Service was kind of slow, our waiter disappeared for most of our meal but the food was worth it. Prices are moderate. The restaurant is in Long Island City which is a very upscale area with nice views of Manhattan.

This restaurant is near a friend's house in LIC. I've visited it a couple of times and had absolutely enjoyed the food and atmosphere!! Both times were in Summer so we sat outside. There is a lovey garden direct besides the sitting area. I'd highly recommend the Mapo Tofu and any of the yummy drinks. It's a great neighborhood hangout... More
