I could be more critical,but I am in a good mood. First visit. I was greeted warmly and our party of 6 was promptly seated. My first impression was that I would be glad to return and bring other friends. I had a good feeling about the place. It is nice looking and comfortable with low noise. It was a... More

The sushi place in on the 2nd floor of the restaurant. It's quiet and has a warm feeling. The food there is totally awesome with such a reasonable price. I usually order the sushi deluxe when I come with my bf or the sushi boat when with a group. Never had bad time with Margaret. The only point off is... More

Family of 5 went to Margaret Kuo's, it was my first experience. 3 of us ordered the 7 course dinner for $65. The food was good and as expected some of the courses were very small portions so that you finish it. I ordered the lamb in spring pancakes. It was very good, but did not come with anything. I...

Horribly slow service. Food mediocre. Fatty. Resting on their laurels. 4 hours of waiting around for the next course. Very disappointed. Will not return or recommend.

The food is good, the service is very mediocre.... experienced this more than once. on the last visit, the waiter refused to tell us about the lunch special. After SEVERAL requests ..... I had to go outside to read the sign posted by the door to find out what was on the special! Varied and interesting menu.

This is a consistently good place. We ate upstairs in the Japanese space. I like this room a lot but prefer the food in the Chinese space. I had the salmon which was great. I usually eat here about once a month and it never disappoints.

The restaurant is absolutely beautiful and the staff was very welcoming. I entered looking for a small take out restaurant, but that's most definitely not what I found. I wanted to order to go and they quickly crafted my order. I was disappointed that they require a $25 minimum charge for using a credit card. Their prices are higher than... More

Ok, this is my nighborhood sushi restaurant and Kan the sushi chef is left to his own devices in preparing my dinner. I have never been disappointed with my sushi or sashimi. I have often sat in this restaurant way beyond closing and never asked to leave. The chinese restaurant, Dragons Lair is just as wonderful. Both restaurants are decorated... More
