We've had the pleasure of eating here on the 17th. Our waitress Lee was such a delight. She was courteous and very attentive to our needs. The sushi was the best in town! And the music and ambience was perfect. It really sets the tone for the whole place. I will be dining here more often.

Save money!!! Buy a house by the ocean and catch your own fish!!! The ceviche was a massive disappointment... The service at the sushi bar was non existent also. To be fair though we did order a sushi roll which was delicious.

Again, they came through. Their staff gives exceptional service. The seafood is the best, and the sushi - hmmm - you just have to try.

I went to this restaurant with a friend and was disappointed the moment I walked through the door. First, the entry doors are not labeled and there are quite a few so we actually entered into the wrong area. Then, we got sat and ordered from a waitress that seemed rushed. They were out of a few things that we... More

My wife and I ate here on New Years Eve. Arriving at 6 P.M. the restaurant was mostly empty. The atmosphere is nice but does not have a especially Asian feel. Also many term this place as stylish I feel although nice the atmosphere is not especially creative or edgy as comparable modern Japanese restaurants in other cities. Service was... More

Me and my cousin walked in to be greeted by Jenese who was a breath of fresh air. Than our server Aaron walked us through the menu and was so helpful with choosing our wine and gave us recommendations for sushi. Aaron was over the top and he made our experience. We will be back. And hope that Aaron will... More

I had a very good meal here recently. It was a Tuesday night so I think that may have contributed to it not being very busy. I had sushi that tasted very fresh and there were lots of rolls, sashimi, and nigiri to choose from. They offer three sauces to dip in as well if you like sauces. For the... More

Great location and service! The food was unusual and fish was fresh! The asian taco appetizer was amazing! The ambience was perfect for romantic night on the town even though the area around the restaurant was party central. The waitress recommendations were "spot on".
