Very busy, MUST book restaurant with great staff that explain dishes very well. Dishes get served in a very haphazard way but if you expect this and are ok with it you will enjoy many wonderful, well prepared treats. This is not a quiet restaurant, but always full with wait line. Great place to order lots of different dishes to... More

The perfect place to enjoy the best fish flavors. This resto is unique not only for the food but also for the service level.

The most expensive sushi of my life was also the most incredible. Go big or go home. $800 for two of us and it was sushi and champagne. The flavor arrangement is so intricate that the chef shows you how to place the piece in your mouth for palette response. Crazy I know.

Very, very good. My wife and I got the tasting menu with additions and subtractions from our waiter and were blown away. It's not cheap, but it's one of the best meals I have ever had (I think we spent around $150 for both of us including a few drinks). It's also fairly casual for a place in this price... More

We are from NY, where quality sushi places abound, but this place is great. Creative, delicious food, very hip place.

I have had the pleasure of dining around the globe. This is the most unique inspired fresh and interesting approach to Japanese I have come across. Every thing we tried was unique and delicious, even the flash fried Brussel sprouts were great. It's a popular restaurant for a good reason the food, service and atmosphere is top notch.

Loved it. Got there before 5 and door was locked. Came back 15 minutes after 5 and the sushi bar was full. Cool atmosphere...unique and delicious samplings. Waiter (blonde guy from NewZealand...Matt?) was best waiter I've had in a while. He recited the menu items like a gastronomic chemist...brought just what we wanted and didn't hard sell anything. Will be... More

Parking is limited, but the valets located in the parking lot behind the restaurant will take care of the vehicle for you. Our party of 3 was seated imediately upon checking in. The server quickly came to us and got us started with drinks and explained the menu. My wife and I ended up ordering the 6-course signature tasting while... More

Great place to explore a real effort to bring varied and intricate complex food combinations together for a unique dining experience . Unfortunately the price does not match up to the food as good as it can be. Jar Jar Duck was $28 and was not much bigger that a very small appetizer . I would go again , stay... More
